Exhibition Centre Liverpool has expanded its sales team with a new appointment.
Colm Graham has joined the waterfront venue as senior exhibition account manager.
He joins from Eikon Exhibition Centre, Belfast, where he was sales and events manager for seven years. He said: “As a stunning venue in a world-class location, I’m looking forward to helping to cement Exhibition Centre Liverpool’s reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting sites in the heart of a destination which is continuously evolving and developing.
“Part of my role will be to show organisers exactly what Liverpool has to offer to ensure their exhibitions are a great success.”
Colm will work alongside the sales team which includes Vikki Langan, exhibition sales account manager, and is led by Adrian Evans, assistant director – conferences and exhibition sales.
Adrian said: “As Exhibition Centre Liverpool approaches its third anniversary, Colm will help to develop and implement aspects of our strategy which includes supporting new exhibitions.
“As a relatively new exhibition location, we are keen to encourage fresh and vibrant events and to provide a flexible venue where these exhibitions can nurture and grow.”
Exhibition Centre Liverpool, part of the ACC Liverpool campus, hosts consumer and trade exhibitions, global conferences, entertainment and major sporting events.

Forthcoming events include The Gin to My Tonic Show, The Manufacturer Smart Factory Expo and the Free From Show Winter.
