Will powers in to The International Centre

AN event industry specialist with a wealth of experience is the new sales manager at The International Centre, Telford.

Will Aylott previously worked at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham where he was responsible for the venue’s corporate business strategy and business development.

He has also worked at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry where he developed and managed the sales team and handled the relationship between operating partners and on-site clients.

“I’m very pleased to have joined such a professional and forward-thinking team here at Telford, and I’m looking forward to building on the excellent reputation the venue already has,” he said.

“With the ambitious plans to create a brand new convention quarter right outside the venue under way, it’s the start of a whole new era for us and for the destination as a whole.”

Tom Gray, chief executive of the Southwater Event Group, which owns The International Centre, said: “Will is a great addition to our sales team and he brings invaluable industry expertise that will fit perfectly with the skills of our existing staff.”
