The InterContinental London – The O2, managed and operated by the Arora Group, has enhanced its senior MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events) team with two new appointments. Elisa Rego da Silva joins the leadership team as Director of MICE with a remit which covers the management of the events division from a proactive sales, conversion and planning perspective and Clara Lloyd-Beavis takes on the role of Head of MICE Sales, focusing on pro-active sales.

Elisa was most recently Associate Director of Sales at Andaz Liverpool Street, part of Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, having joined the hotel in 2009 as Events Manager.  Elisa began her career with an 18 month hospitality internship with Holiday Inn Express, part of IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group).  

Clara joins from Chelsea Harbour Hotel where most recently she held the position of Director of MICE Sales having joined as MICE and Entertainment Sales Manager in November 2015. Clara started her career with QMH Hotels before joining the graduate management programme and progressing through the ranks with De Vere Venues.  

Commenting on her appointment, Elisa said: “I’m excited for a new challenge as part of the team at InterContinental London – The O2. My experience stands me in good stead as I work with the team to deliver against our ambitious targets as we look to cement the venue’s status as one of the most popular event spaces in the capital.”  

Clara comments: “I’m delighted to join the team at the InterContinental London – The O2. The Meetings and Events proposition here is extremely strong, and there is huge scope for growth as we look to maximise both large conference and small meetings bookings. Having such a diverse range of spaces, from the 3,100m2 pillar-free Arora Ballroom to smaller, more intimate meeting rooms, it’s a really comprehensive offer and I’m excited to work with the team to build on the great work they’ve been doing.”  

Raj Shah, Group Commercial Director at Arora Group, commented on the appointments: “I am delighted to announce these two new senior appointments. Both Elisa and Clara bring with them considerable experience and expertise and, as we approach our one year anniversary at InterContinental London – The O2, they will be a real asset to the MICE Sales team, working with them to drive high profile bookings both from the UK and internationally.”
