Said joined our office on April 2018 as Deputy Managing Director and will work alongside the team to carry the Sales and Events management. The figure is undoubtedly already known to most of you. Indeed, Said enjoys a very long experience in the meetings and hotels industry. He began his career in one of Brussels' grand hotels, The Hilton Brussels and later joined one of the largest professional conference organiser and association management, MCI Group where he held positions in PCO, Corporate and DMC departments. In 2011, Said decided to give even further impetus to his career and he joined one of the largest associations based in Brussels, The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) where he managed the industry liaison and congress logistics. Through his entire career, Said has travelled the world and become acquainted with most of the destinations where he visited convention centres, collaborated with convention bureaus as well as various national organisations helping the smooth running of congresses.
