Meet the team – Vicki’s first six months

Blog | ZiaBia Team

I joined in a brand new role as Venue and Relationships Manager in June 2023 and quite honestly, I have no idea where the past six months have gone!

Why ZiaBia? 

I have worked in events since the 1980s, firstly as a client and then in the past 20 or so years, with events agencies and was looking for a role that would embrace all the experience and knowledge gained from working with both sides of the coin.  As an expanding events business, ZiaBia was the perfect solution for me to expand my knowledge further and support ZiaBia’s ambitions to grow in stature as well as size.

My journey so far 

Much of my role revolves around supplier and venue relationships, both new and pre-existing. I have really enjoyed meeting with suppliers, whether on-line or face to face, introducing to all those new suppliers, the amazing work we do with and for our clients.

I have also benefitted enormously from being able to attend event exhibitions such as The Meetings Show, as well as smaller networking events and workshops, to allow us to continue to grow our network of stand-alone venues, hotels, resorts and other essential event suppliers.  It is essential that our supplier partners understand our business, are both reliable and imaginative and are able to work with us as part of our extended team. It’s also vital that we keep up to date with new openings and new opportunities so that we can continue to serve our clients well.

I have always said that a team is only as good as its people and I am delighted to be part of the wonderful team at ZiaBia, who are as passionate as I am about what we do, and are so supportive.

What’s next? 

It’s evident both from industry statistics as well as our own workloads, that 2024 is already progressing well for ZiaBia, with some amazing projects already lined-up along with new event enquiries that are coming in. We all thrive in a busy environment and embrace every opportunity that comes our way, with boundless energy, passion and enthusiasm. I’m looking forward to more opportunities to meet, travel and discover even more.

Would I recommend ZiaBia? 

Absolutely 100%. 

ZiaBia are a team of hard-working event professionals ready and willing to give more than 100% to everything we do, with the skills and experience to match. We love nothing better than turning the ordinary into the extra-ordinary for all of our clients.
