RBTE, the European retail solutions show, has made some strategic new appointments as the result of some exciting developments at Legend, the organisers of RBTE, which will support the growth of this successful and respected event. 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.
John Bednall, CEO, Legend, 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% in this time. He has an extensive knowledge of the industry and his network of contacts is enviable. His passion, enthusiasm and leadership skills means he can contribute to all aspects of RBTE and is a very safe pair of hands to take the show forward to fulfil its immense potential. 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."
"I'm looking forward to helping direct the next exciting growth phase for the show. 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" said Bradley. "RBTE 2014 in March had the highest volume of retail visitors that we've experienced so far, well over 7,000, and not just from the UK and Europe but across the globe. We also had our most successful year in terms of exhibitors with over 300 innovative suppliers on the show floor and a record rebook rate. With the raft of new initiatives we have in place for RBTE 2014 I'm very excited for what the future holds for RBTE."
Matt Bradley replaces Nick Field, who is now Legend's MD.
