Abbey Johnson

Venue Consultant (currently on maternity leave)

I look after both corporate and private events. I enjoy building relations with clients from their initial enquiry to post event. Developing strong relationships with event bookers is part of the job I love. Getting to understand clients over multiple events and knowing what they want without them even asking gives me a buzz. Event planning can be stressful and hectic, I try and remove this for all our bookers; I am the one point of contact who can match requirements with solutions.

About Abbey

The events industry has always been my ‘dream job’; not because I thought it was glamorous and all very social, but because the energy and atmosphere at a significant event is priceless! The energy can be infectious and the team work is like no other industry. I started my career in hotels and quickly learnt that I wanted a more diverse challenge. At ITA* the collection of venues is breathtaking and I can always find a solution. The variety and scope pushes me every day.
