Cathy McGreevy has spent the last three years persuading conference guests to use North Warwickshire Golfing attraction The Belfry Resort Hotel and its 324 bedrooms. But now her marketing skills are to take on a challenge over three times that size as she has been named as the new Head of Conference Business at the University of Warwick. and charged with selling the 1200 rooms available to conference guests.

In her role she will be responsible for the University’s £5 million vacation conference business. The Summer vacation conference visitors alone total 35,000 each year and the university has won the title of best academic conference venue no less than 7 times in the last 10 years.

Cathy says "I’m really excited about the potential at Warwick. The new facilities are superb, the University has a great reputation and is regarded as the market leader in the campus business tourism market."
