Alana Bicknell joins the NZICC as Senior Sales Manager - New Zealand

This week we are thrilled to be welcoming Alana Bicknell to the NZICC team as Senior Sales Manager - New Zealand. Alana is joining us from Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency where she was the Head of Sales for Venues Wellington.

Prue Daly, Director of Sales says: "Alana is a great extension to our team, not only is she well regarded within the business events sector but her drive and passion is a welcome addition to our NZICC culture. I look forward to having such a talented individual take care of our New Zealand market."

Alana's experience in managing 6 venues from her previous roles means she is well versed in the importance of the New Zealand market for the NZICC, the needs of our future clients and delivering solutions that require flexibility and scale. The NZICC is by no means a simple or static venue, with operable walls allowing over 16 different configurations to the halls and with the spaces on level 5 being transformed from a meeting room to combine to a large banquet space there is flexibility and offerings for a variety of business and social events. Alana will be taken throughout the construction site and will work closely with David Allott - the NZICC's Director of Operations to ensure she is very familiar with the offerings and configurability of the building.

Alana says "I am really looking forward to working with clients and sharing the opportunities that the NZICC has to offer. Not only is this going to be a magnificent building that can host large events, but it also have has 33 meeting spaces that can look after smaller intimate events. I was really delighted to understand there will be pre-installed audio visual equipment and services in most of the meeting spaces as well, as that is something I hear the industry wants, and provides cost savings and efficiencies. While I have loved living in our gorgeous Capital, Wellington for 6 years, I’m excited about the infrastructure growth supporting business events in Auckland and to be making a new home there to start my next chapter in my career."

Don't hesitate to get in touch with Alana or the team if you have any questions about bringing your event to the NZICC.
