BSI’s conference remit to increase after restructure

Hotel and conference reservations agency BSI is to expand its conference business, following a company restructure. The restructure will enable clients to book BSI’s services – management, conferencing, consulting – with one call. Before, the services had been run as autonomous outfits. Three new management positions have been created as a result of the restructure. David Henderson has been appointed director of sales, and Alan Stevenson director of customer services. Richard Eades becomes business development director, and has the remit to develop the conference division, BSI Conferencing. “I’m keen to establish BSI Conferencing as a standalone within the group,” said Eades. “BSI was principally a hotel booking agent and hadn’t really touched the events side, although it had been looking at moving into this area for some time.” Eades added that BSI Conferencing would be looking at developing business partnerships, such as those it has already established with corporate travel management company Rosenbluth International. BSI Conferencing’s team currently consists of 12 staff, although Eades is hoping to recruit to swell the ranks further. Its client roster includes Royal Bank of Scotland, Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Orange and Zurich Finances.
