Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), the owner of the Holiday Inn & Crowne Plaza hotel brands, has announced the appointment of Rosemary Pritchard as head of meetings & events (M&E) for the IHG UK & Ireland managed estate.
Pritchard joins from QHotels, but has wealthy experience in the M&E sector having spent time at Paramount Hotels, Hilton London Park Lane and Metropole Hotels. In her new role within IHG’s commercial leadership team, she will be responsible for driving all elements of their M&E performance forward, by raising awareness of Holiday Inn & Crowne Plaza hotels as the venue of choice for M&E.

"The M&E industry is extremely competitive, so it’s about ensuring consistently high standards across all of our hotels, whilst engaging with new businesses.”
