Speaking about CentrEd and Williams' appointment, executive director, James Rees, said: "With CentrEd at ExCeL, we are providing clients with something truly different. Whilst our reputation has been built on big, CentrEd has been specifically designed for events from 20 to 400 delegates. We’ve considered every aspect of the experience - from a tranquil, waterside setting to the latest technology and innovative menu- putting the delegate at the heart of what we do. We are delighted that Rachel has joined our team and believe her skills and experience will be of huge benefit as we continue to develop CentrEd."
