Dion Bassett New Operations Director at Congrex UK

Dion Bassett has been appointed Operations Director at Congrex UK with effect from 1 July 2013. She will be based in the London office.

Dion Bassett will be leaving her position as Operations Director at Kenes UK, which she has held since 2009 when Kenes merged with Confab Consulting Ltd. She has previously worked for CongressWorld as a freelancer and for Concorde Services.

During her 25 years in the conference industry, Dion has built excellent relationships with the majority of UK venues and convention bureaus and she has an extensive worldwide network of contacts in the industry. She is a member of the advisory board of The Barbican, Europe's largest multi-arts and conference venue.

As a conference organiser and project manager, Dion Bassett has delivered major medical and academic meetings for clients in a large number of destinations around the world. She was key in the set-up of the British Laryngological Association and organised their inaugural meeting in December 2012.

“I have worked with Dion as a colleague, competitor and supplier”, said Rob Harrison, Chief Operating Officer of the Congrex Group. “I have always respected what she does and how she does it. She is a well-respected member of the conference industry in the UK and I very much look forward to her joining the Congrex UK team. I believe that her experience, drive and personality will help to inspire the team moving forward.”
