Member’s profile: Parul Patel
RenewableUK is the UK’s leading renewable energy trade association, specialising in onshore wind, offshore wind, and wave & tidal energy. Formed in 1978, we have a large established corporate membership, ranging from small independent companies to large international corporations and manufacturers.
Our aim is to ensure increasing amounts of renewable electricity are deployed sustainably across the UK, and to support our members win business in renewable markets in the UK and around the world.
As an Event Manager, I lead events for the association that includes multi-day conferences, workshops, UK Pavilions, VIP dinners, and receptions. The role includes exhibition floorplan design and management, exhibition sales, registration management, speaker management and design and planning of UK pavilions at leading trade shows around the world, along with planning of associated activities around these events.
My experience in the events industry developed over the last 15 years’; and has included working as Event Co-ordinator and then Event Manager at a similar membership Trade Association – International Marine Contractors Association, where I managed the Association’s events portfolio of over 120 events per year. Following my time at IMCA, I worked at Diabetes UK for a short time before joining RenewableUK.
