Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE) organiser Legend Exhibitions has made some new additions to its team.

Matt Bradley who previously headed up the sales team has been promoted to event director, with Delia Manole joining the sales department as senior sales executive, working alongside RBTE sales manager Hannah Armstrong and John Blackley, senior sales executive who both joined RBTE in March.

Legend CEO John Bednall said: “Matt has worked on RBTE since its launch – he sold the first stand and has enjoyed great success in his role as sales director growing the show by over 250 per cent in this time.

“We are also very pleased to welcome Delia to our expanding sales team. She is joining the company at a very exciting time as we go into RBTE 2015 with a record rebook, as well new launches in the pipeline.”

Matt Bradley replaces Nick Field, who is now Legend’s MD.

“I’m looking forward to helping direct the next exciting growth phase for the show,” said Bradley. "Already an established and respected must attend event for the retail industry we have the opportunity to make the show substantially bigger and even better.”

Legend Exhibitions is anticipating a sell-out debut for its inaugural Retail Design Expo at Olympia London next year.
