Here are some more of our highlights of 2016..


Hazel Slimmon – Head of HR

“My professional highlight was returning to work after a years maternity leave and completing my first module in my CIPD qualification.”



Nina Jones

Nina Jones – Marketing Manager

“The successful launch of the first ever Commercial Kitchen show!”



Karolina Orecchini

Karolina Orecchini – Senior Sales Executive

“Joining Diversified in September!”



Lars Larsson – Nordic Manager at NOFF and NPS

“The first day of this years show topped everything. Aisles full of enthusiastic visitors and all exhibitors were happy. The seminar program was top class and everything was actually champagne and roses. But also the days at the HQ in Brighton in connection with our Christmas Celebration and Strategy Day was worth a lot, especially if you work all alone as I do over here. To get that warm feeling that you are part of a great team is just awesome.”



Jessamy Chapman

Jess Chapman – Editor, Coach Monthly

“Mentoring new journalists. This year we waved goodbye to the unforgettable Tara Lepore, who was inspired *BY US* to pursue a “proper” journalism career in London. We welcomed Jess Sludds into the editorial team from admin, and Beth Hutson, a journalism student from the local uni – both of them have flourished, and Sluddsy is now an editor herself. That makes me very proud indeed.”



Anne Seeberg

Anne Seeberg – Event Director, Nordic Organic Food Fair & Natural Products Scandinavia

“As the Natural Products brand launched in Hong Kong a couple of years ago, I went to visit our DivCom colleagues and see the show in September. It was very interesting to see a show that’s almost the same as your own, organised by another office. It gave me a lot of new ideas and an opportunity to share my experience with the team in HK.”



Darran Foss – Salesforce Administrator and Database Manager

“Working with Sam, moved the Brighton office from Saleslogix platform to Salesforce on time and budget.”



Helen Conway – Event Director

“Hitting and exceeding GP target for EBE.”



Sally Eyre – Senior Sales Executive

“Selling series bookings and our Front Cover packages way in advance.”



Lloyd Jones – Sales Manager

“It’s more of a team effort rather than individual, doubling our profit contribution for the business from 2015. This was key to the success of BTTS 16.”



Eva Ellis – Senior Sales Executive for Casual Dining

“My professional highlight of 2016 would be achieving the two best weeks in terms of revenue for Casual Dining since the show launched (excluding rebook of course!).”



Rachel Gregory  – Senior Sales Executive – Accountex

“My highlight was seeing how all the hard work had paid off when our office* show came to life in May at Excel, followed by joining Zoe and working on the one and only Accountex, our brand new show.”
