Experiential agency WRG has appointed Simon Hartley as Congress Project Manager in its Manchester office.

The development of key healthcare accounts and new business wins has led to a rise in demand for WRG.

CEO Russ Lidstone (above) said: “As recently reported in the IPA Bellwether report, event marketing spend continues to rise and we're seeing significant demand for our congress services from our healthcare clients.

“We're investing in our congress delivery expertise in the UK to deliver exceptional delegate experiences for our clients.”

Hartley has extensive experience in the healthcare sector having previously headed up a large logistics account team for a global healthcare client delivering more than 80 events a year.

Naomi Hatch has also joined the Manchester office as a Junior Project Manager having previously worked in medical communications and healthcare marketing in Manchester.
