Corgan joins as head of business development UK/Europe and will be responsible for promoting Copenhagen to potential meetings and congress buyers in Europe, but with a primary focus on the British market.
She has worked as business events manager, UK & Europe for Tourism Australia for the past ten years. Prior to that, she was sales manager, MICE at Visit Denmark’s office in London. She is also chairperson of the Oysters-collaboration in London.
Mikkel Aarø-Hansen, CEO of Wonderful Copenhagen, described Corgan as first-rate in the field. "The UK is, after Germany, the largest European MICE market and likewise the market, that has generated most leads to Copenhagen in recent years," he commented.
Corgan added: "I'm absolutely delighted to be joining Wonderful Copenhagen. The city is one of Europe’s most innovative business events destinations, a leading destination of creative meeting design and sustainable events. I am looking forward to working with the team and growing the business into Copenhagen from the UK/European markets."
VisitDenmark closed its UK MICE arm at the end of last year due to a reduction in funding. Former sales manager for VisitDenmark Business Events UK, Ines Lebaek, recently joined ExCel London as sales manager for associations.
