Conference Partners will be responsible for all aspects of association management for the ICCA UK and Ireland Chapter, including event management, committee and membership support, financial management and communications.

The one-year contract has been awarded following a three-way competitive tender.

ICCA UK and Ireland Chapter chair and director of sales at ACC Liverpool, Kerrin MacPhie, said: "The chapter continues to grow with several new members joining already this year and so it is essential we have a strong secretariat to support our voluntary committee and ensure we offer a great service to our members. We are delighted to appoint Conference Partners to the role following their successful tender."

Nicola McGrane, managing director of the Conference Partners Group, added: "Working with an organisation that has education and the sharing of knowledge high on their agenda is a priority for Conference Partners."

The Conference Partners team responsible for the ICCA UK and Ireland Chapter secretariat will be led by account manager Lorraine Garvie. The first task for the new chapter secretariat will be to manage ICCA UK and Ireland's forthcoming annual debate to be held in Brighton on 24-25 March.
