New hire joins CHS team in preparation of 10th anniversary show
Michelle Rennoldson has joined CHS Group UK as buyer relationship manager, with a remit to make the 10th Anniversary Conference and Hospitality Show the best yet.
A regular attendee from the inaugural event in 2000, Michelle has seen the Conference and Hospitality Show grow to a record-breaking national show in 2018, which has put Leeds firmly on the conference map.
Rennoldson commented: “I started with CHS as a project manager to cover a single event, which grew into another one and then they asked me to come on board permanently.
“I’m so pleased to be working with CHS. I’ve known them and worked alongside them for a long time, and they’ve always been such a great company to work with. They never sit still and are constantly looking to improve what they do and pushing for the next big thing.
“I look after the Independent Venue Roadshow and hosted buyers programme. I’m currently recruiting judges for our 5thanniversary CHS Awards and relationship building with contacts, agents, PA’s and venues and inviting them along to our events.”
Michelle previously spent six years at the National Railway Museum, initially with Compass, and then Science Museum before combining her freelance work with a new position of buyer relationship manager for CHS Group UK.
Rennoldson added: “It’s interesting seeing how it works from this side. My previous experience has been as a venue or a delegate, and I’m now building a very different relationship with contacts from my venue background.”
CHS19 will return to the First Direct Arena in Leeds for the Conference and Hospitality Show on Tuesday 30th April 2019.
