ICC Sydney’s Samantha Glass joins ABEA Board

ICC Sydney's Samantha Glass.

ICC Sydney’s Samantha Glass has joined the Australian Business Events Association (ABEA) board in place of Cairns Convention Centre general manager Janet Hamilton.

Glass is ICC Sydney’s director of corporate affairs, communication and sustainability, and takes over the convention centre appointed position on the Board from Hamilton, who has stepped down to concentrate on fostering opportunities for the extended and refurbished centre.

ABEA Chair Peter King said Glass will be a great asset to the organisation in meeting the evolving industry demands in the realm of sustainability and social responsibility.

“As we continue to build a robust and dynamic Board, we welcome Samantha’s wealth of experience and leadership acumen,” he said.

“We are excited to be able to draw on her passion for sustainable development and brand leadership.”

In adherence to the ABEA Constitution, the appointment maintains the presence of a convention centre leader whilst simultaneously maintaining the 50/50 gender balance.

“We are actively considering appointments to cover areas such as emerging leaders, suppliers and small business representation,” said King.
