The Prestigious Venues senior board has promoted Habib Amir to Global Managing Director as of February 2014. Habib previously advised luxury hotel groups and brands on digital transformation and marketing strategy across a range of industries. His consultancy roles since 2002 have seen him working with WPP PR agency, Clarion, UTV Media and Havas Worldwide, advising key brands including Unilever, Google and Sony. Habib will now focus on Prestigious Venues global strategy and growth. He will continue his advisory role to Clarion clients and remain on the WPP Digital European Advisory Board.
Habib has helped global hotel brands across a wide range of digital communications since 2002 but now brings a wealth of digital public relations experience to Prestigious Venues. The key market for the company remains the UK but due to 15%+ growth from the U.S and Australia in Q4 of 2013, the company now plans digital investments in other global markets.
Prestigious Venues now has presence in 11 countries, delivering an estimated 14 million a year in events revenue to 75 of its member venues. Events booked through Prestigious Venues include conferences, seminars, board meetings, banquets, gala dinners, product launches, receptions, engagements, weddings, corporate incentives and other bespoke packages. The company hand-picks its member venues based on a criteria of the venue quality, performance and reputation. It stands as the only global supplier of premium private and corporate event spaces. The company plans to grow its search, social and email initiatives, which currently deliver the majority of its new business.
Habib’s industry credentials and past work at Prestigious Venues makes him a natural fit to direct the company’s global initiatives. He is among the youngest global managing directors with a vision of revolutionising the way event bookers find inspiration, choice and the right venues for their events.
