Adelaide Oval has made a series of new appointments to bolster its sales and events team following a busy year.

Jo Thomson is the General Manager of Partnerships and Sales, Emily Stearne is Senior Events Manager and April Stringer has taken on the role of Senior Business Development Manager.

The new faces join Oval Hotel Business Development Manager Amod Naval, who is responsible for hotel sales, focusing on the MICE and corporate markets, and Adelaide Oval Director of Sales Kellie Howard, who joined the team in late 2022 from the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Adelaide Oval hosted the AHA Awards last year.

Stearne said she is excited to return to the Adelaide Oval.

“I’m excited about the chance to present our event capabilities and food and beverage offerings at our annual showcase events,” she said.

“It’s a great opportunity to connect with our wider events community, our clients and exhibit current trends.”

Adelaide Oval has hosted some key industry events in the past 12 months, including a breakfast spectacular for Dreamtime, the AHA Awards and welcome events for ATEC Meeting Place and Liv Golf.

“So many clients have a different perception of Adelaide Oval as just another stadium so it brings me so much joy when I can host site inspections with clients and show them just how special Adelaide Oval is,” said Howard.

“We have a stunning hotel and offer a unique place to do business.”
