MEL­BOURNE Con­ven­tion Bureau (MCB) ceo Karen Bolinger has joined the In­cen­tive Con­fer­ence and Event So­ci­ety Asia Pa­cific (ICESAP) ad­vi­sory board.

Bolinger (pic­tured) fills the void left by Jean­nie Lim, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Singapore Tourism Board, who stepped down from the ad­vi­sory board at the end of 2016 af­ter a three-year term.

ICESAP has also ap­pointed AccorHotels vp sales for Asia Pa­cific Kerry Healy to the ad­vi­sory board.

Healy will bring her ex­per­tise in driv­ing aware­ness of ICESAP’s newly launched Agency Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Scheme, which was brought to mar­ket with the sup­port of AccorHotels as prin­ci­pal part­ner.

Com­ment­ing on the two ap­point­ments, ICESAP pres­i­dent Nigel Gaunt said both women would bring an enor­mous amount of ex­pe­ri­ence to the ad­vi­sory board.

“Our aim is to ro­tate ad­vi­sory board po­si­tions on a two-year cy­cle and there will be two mem­bers leav­ing at the end of 2017 which will lead to fur­ther ap­point­ments later in 2017,” Gaunt said.

ICESAP has also an­nounced that Erica He­garty will as­sume the po­si­tion of re­gional vp for South East Asia.

He­garty is cur­rently head of sales Asia Pa­cific at Pa­cific World based in Singapore.
