THE TEAM responsible for corporate conference and association sales at Scotland’s largest live events and conferencing venue, P&J Live in Aberdeen, is strengthened by four new recent appointments, bringing a variety of industry experience to the venue as it continues its growth in the C&E market.

Michelle Allan joins as Corporate Business Development Manager and is responsible for proactively security and identifying new opportunities in the local, national and international conference business and banqueting events sectors.

Kainah McAdams also takes on the role of Corporate Business Development Manager. Having worked with key premium venues across Scotland in her previous role, she has an impressive network of contacts, a passion for sales and proven successes in the management of key client accounts.

Arryann Duncan joins P&J Live as Associations Sales Executive, having recently graduated from Robert Gordon University with distinction, and will be supporting the development of the venue’s ever-growing association conference portfolio.

Sarah Oliphant, former Administrator at P&J Live, has received an internal promotion and will now bring her expertise to the corporate sales team, joining as Sales Executive, and will support with sales of local corporate meetings, conferences and banqueting events.

Rob Wicks, Managing Director of P&J Live, said: “We have hit the ground running in 2024 with these four new appointments. While many might view our venue as one with an entertainment-led programme of events, the conference market makes up at least half of our business and is an area that we believe will continue to grow and develop. Attracting medium to large-scale local, national and international association and corporate events to P&J Live, alongside our local stakeholders, are essential to the city and the wider region’s economic strategy, and we need the very best expertise in-house to help us grow this ambition. I would like to welcome Michelle, Kainah, Sarah and Arryann to the team, and I look forward to seeing the positive contribution each of them will make to our growth plans.”
