Emirates Old Trafford has appointed Tom Gibbs as Event Sales Agent to meet the growing demand of new conference and events business.

Gibbs arrived at the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club in October from the Manchester Conference Centre and Pendulum Hotel.

He will be responsible for handling all reactive enquiries and converting them to bring business to Emirates Old Trafford, and the city, as well as developing and growing already established accounts.

Angela Hodson, Head of Conference and Events at Emirates Old Trafford, said: “Tom is a great addition to our already established team, his in-depth knowledge of the conference and events business already puts him in good stead.”
