Nineteen Group, one of the UK’s fastest-growing events businesses, has appointed Rachael Shattock to run their London Series of International Security Expo, International Disaster Response Expo and the launch of their new International Cyber Expo, which has changed its dates to Sept. 28-29, 2021, with thanks to Olympia London.
Shattock has worked in marketing for the Communications Management Associates, as marketing manager for IIR Exhibitions Limited, and as marketing manager (three years), then director (five years) and group marketing director (four years) for Informa Exhibitions before working as a strategic marketing consultant for Nineteen Group beginning in January.
Shattock says, “With almost 20 years of events experience, I am deeply passionate about growing and engaging audiences and optimizing the customer experience at each event I run.”
Nineteen Group CEO Peter Jones says,”Our events are dedicated to protecting people, assets and organizations and our corporate vision is focused on becoming the most successful events business in the UK.”
Jones continues, “I love major-scale events. Not many sectors offer such a tangible opportunity to develop ideas from a 2D piece of paper to a 3D bustling hall of electric reality! I’ve built several award-winning companies ground up but thrilled to announce that we became backed by Phoenix Equity Partners in Nov 2018 and went on to complete our first acquisition of the superb Western Business Exhibitions. I believe that any organization is only a collection of people, and its our people at Nineteen that make it special. We have the people, and the backing, now let’s grow!
“Welcome Rachael, we are uber-thrilled that you gave in (after a year of chasing), and joined us,” says Jones, adding that she’s “planning something really-cool with the team to fill the gap this December and keep the security, disaster response and cyber discussion going. Not a virtual exhibition or a webinar. Watch Linkedin for more info.”
At the heart of Nineteen Group lies more than 100 years of industry experience and an unrelenting commitment to deliver customer satisfaction. Following substantial investment from Phoenix Equity Partners, a leading growth-focused private equity firm, Nineteen Group is delivering major-scale trade exhibitions within the security, fire, emergency services, health and safety, facilities management and maintenance engineering sectors.
