The Mermaid Conference and Events Centre, a premium central London venue offering a 600-seat auditorium, with a 350 sqm stage, and 12 meeting and event rooms, has strengthened its sales team with the appointment of Dorota Bialkowska as sales executive.

Dorota’s remit includes developing the venue’s client base, promoting its unique conference and event spaces and further establishing the venue as the first choice for conference, exhibitions and receptions. Dorota joins The Mermaid from Principal Hayley Hotels and Conference Venues where she was special events and banqueting coordinator.

Commenting on her appointment, Dorota said:  “I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to help drive business forward at The Mermaid. It is a renowned venue in London, oozing with personality, and for that reason I’m very excited to have made this move.”

Alicia Duncan, general manager of The Mermaid, added: “It is great to have Dorota on board, expanding the team is part of our on-going strategy to develop the business, and build on our excellent reputation for delivering on customer service. Her professionalism and understanding of clients’ needs will help us to stand in great stead as we seek to maximise opportunities for awards ceremonies, private events and weddings for the recently refurbished River Rooms.”

The Mermaid is recognised as one of London’s most versatile event spaces offering unrivalled facilities, leading technology and commanding views over the Thames.
