Rebecca Cardozo The launch Venue Director for the new Glow events venue at Bluewater, Rebecca Cardozo, has resigned from her post.
 
The announcement comes six months after the launch of Glow, which debuted with Clarion Events’ Spirit of Christmas consumer event on 30 November.
 
Cardozo joined Bluewater in May 2010 after several years working in the events industry including a stint with William Reed Business Media. She was appointed a few months after the retail site’s owner Lend Lease announced plans for the 5,200sqm venue.
 
The £60m purpose-built space was hailed as the next milestone in the evolution of the complex and designed to host events.
 
Bluewater GM Robert Goodman thanked Cardozo for her hard work and commitment over the last 23 months incorporating the launch of Glow. A replacement is expected to be announced shortly.
 
“Having opened Glow, the focus is now on building a critical mass of experiential events and exhibitions that complement Bluewater’s offer, while at the same time providing existing and potential visitors with something new,” Goodman told CN. “To meet this objective, the Glow team has expanded, in particular with the creation of a dedicated sales team. We are also in the final stages of appointing a General Manager of Glow.”
 
CN understands Cardozo is in discussion with several companies regarding her next move.
 
Prime Minister David Cameron used the Glow events venue at the end of June to launch his proposed reforms on the welfare system.
 
Directors of Kent-based Mobile Bar Hire Avtar Sandhu and Ragbhir Sandhu both attended and met the Conservative leader over drinks.
 
Ragbhir Sandhu explained how as a local hospitality company Mobile Bar Hire often struggles to get the commitment for work from young adults. He explained people aged between 18 and 23 will often work one or two nights a week and then decide they are losing their benefits and choose not to work.

In reply, the PM said: “This is the exact reason why I feel that we need to look into a more fair systems which encourages youth to seek employment rather than rely on benefits”.
 
“This could be great for the hospitality industry as a whole," Sandhu said of the planned changes going through Parliament.
