| Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre Expands Events Team |
Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre has announced Ileshaa Nijhawan and Ekta Kapoor as Groups and Events Sales Managers, further reinstating their commitment to grow in tandem with Dubai’s emerging MICE industry.
Ileshaa joined the hotel as an Events & Sales Executive in 2012 and was soon promoted to Assistant Groups and Events Sales Manager due to her determination, commitment and affable personality. “Having lived in various cities in India, Saudi Arabia, UK, Sri Lanka, Oman and UAE has given me a rich global perspective and I am able to connect with my clients from different countries and cultures. Over the last four years, I have been part of Dubai’s dynamic and rapidly increasing meeting and conference industry. I am honoured to have been promoted to Groups and Events Sales Manager and look forward to an exciting journey ahead” says Ileshaa.
A post-graduate in Business Management, Ekta comes with eight years of banquet sales and event management experience. Her most recent position was at JW Marriott in Mumbai before she came onboard with the groups and events team at Le Meridien Dubai in 2016. “Being in the Middle East at a time when the MICE industry is at a growth phase, is extremely interesting and dynamic. I am thrilled to work with a hotel that is growing along with Dubai’s vision to become a leading conference destination.” says Ekta.
Ileshaa and Ekta join an enthusiastic and highly skilled events team led by Sara Barakat, Director of Events, whose experience includes events-focused positions at luxury properties across the world.
