Canberra Convention Bureau has announced two new appointments.
Kimberley Wood takes over as head of sales and Kimberley Roberts-Salee as head of marketing, in a restructure the bureau says is aimed at “streamlining operations”.
Wood’s career spans multiple sales roles at Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. She leaves her current role at Canberra Convention Bureau as director of international bidding to become head of sales.
Roberts-Salee holds over ten years of experience in the Australian tourism and business events industry, working at Business Events Cairns & Great Barrier Reef. For the past two years she has served as director of marketing and communications at Canberra Convention Bureau.
Wood commented: “After a challenging year for our industry, I look forward to leading the Canberra Convention Bureau sales team in reconnecting with event organisers, rebuilding towards our pre-Covid targets, and continuing to attract events that drive innovation, knowledge and thought leadership from Australia and globally.”
Roberts-Salee added: “As a proud Canberra ambassador, I’m thrilled to be able to work with our members and wider industry promoting our nation’s capital as a city of knowledge, culture and influence, and to build on positioning Canberra as a safe, accessible and inspiring destination for business events.”
