I am looking forward to working with the extended team and developing the RTE Meetings and Events portfolio,” she adds.Mandy Torrens, who has served for many years with EIBTM most latterly as exhibition director, is promoted to the new role as head of marketing and buyer programmes for the entire portfolio. She will also spearhead the development of the educational and association relationships.Graeme Barnett moves across from exhibition director from CIBTM and GIBTM to EIBTM.
