We are pleased to announce that our venue director Jason Lunn has been elected to the Association of Event Venues (AEV) board following the association’s recent AGM. He joins three other new board members: Jackie Boughton, head of business events at The Barbican, Andy Gibb, group sales & marketing director at Stadium MK and Paula Lorimer, director of Harrogate Convention Centre, who were all elected at the same time.

Jason said, “Now, more than ever, it is important that venues make the most of their collective power and voice through the association. As an AEV member venue, we have experienced the benefits of membership, and as a new member of the board I am looking forward to playing my part, ensuring every member is represented and building on the wealth of advantages conferred through membership.”

Rachel Parker, AEV director, welcomed Jason, saying, “The core strength of the AEV lies in its membership, and I’m delighted to welcome Jason to the board where his long-standing knowledge and expertise will be valuable assets to all our member venues.”
