Event management agency, Congrex UK, has appointed Dion Bassett as its new Operations Director, based in the London office.
Bassett will be leaving her position as Operations Director at Kenes UK, which she has held since 2009 when Kenes merged with Confab Consulting. She has previously worked for CongressWorld as a freelancer and for Concorde Services.
During her 25 years in the conference industry, she has built relationships with the majority of UK venues and convention bureaus and she has a worldwide network of contacts in the industry. She is a member of the Advisory Board of The Barbican, Europe’s largest multi-arts and conference venue.
As a conference organiser and project manager, Bassett has delivered major medical and academic meetings for clients in a large number of destinations around the world. She was key in the set-up of the British Laryngological Association and organised their inaugural meeting in December 2012.
“I have worked with Dion as a colleague, competitor and supplier,” says Chief Operating Officer of the Congrex Group, Rob Harrison.
“I have always respected what she does and how she does it. She is a well-respected member of the conference industry in the UK and I very much look forward to her joining the Congrex UK team. I believe that her experience, drive and personality will help to inspire the team moving forward.”
