Meet the team: Jessica O'Gorman
The Brisbane Convention Bureau is pleased to welcome Jessica O’Gorman to the team as Business Development Manager.
Jessica comes to the Bureau with extensive experience in the business events sector having most recently been National Business Development Manager at RNA, which houses the Royal International Convention Centre and the Brisbane Showgrounds.
Previously, Jessica worked for both the Convention Bureau and Convention Centre in Cairns.
My work with Brisbane Marketing involves:
Generating highly qualified leads and business opportunities for the Convention Bureau team and promoting Brisbane as the destination of choice for business events.
The role of Business Development Manager suits me because:
I genuinely enjoy meeting new people, finding out about their organisations, and I love living in Brisbane.
I like working in the business events industry because:
No two days are the same.
One thing that makes Brisbane an ideal business events destination is:
By its very nature, size and design, Brisbane is an ideal “conventions city”. Delegates are greeted with the natural hospitality of a smaller new world city, while offering all the sophistication of larger global destinations.
My favourite restaurant in Brisbane is:
1889 Enoteca – beautiful Italian food and a very considered wine list.
When I’m not at work you will find me:
Rummaging through antique and second-hand stores for unique finds.
I’ve always wanted to travel to:
Iceland because of its incredible scenery and to see the Northern Lights.
