Liverpool Echo Arena’s former sales manager, Ian Congdon, has been appointed the new head of sales at The NEC Group Arenas. Congdon will head a five-strong team.
Congdon had worked as general manager of Birmingham’s Carling Academy before his move to Liverpool and has over 20 years of experience in the live events industry, including a spell at the Sands conference centre in Carlisle.
After seven and a half years’ in Liverpool Congdon says he was ready for a new challenge.
“I’m delighted to join the NEC Group Arenas and be part of a forward-thinking organisation that already delivers great events. I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into the role and meeting ambitious targets that will shape the future of the Barclaycard Arena and Genting Arena and see the number and portfolio of events at each venue grow,” he said.
