Suzanne Singleton is Head of Associations at London & Partners.
The London Convention Bureau sits within this non for profit organisation, working to attract global audiences within the association/non for profit sector.
Suzanne began her working life in a very different sector, having trained as a classical dancer she worked in London as a professional dancer for 16 years, before deciding to hang up her dancing shoes to embark on a completely different career.
Moving into the events industry seemed an obvious choice, and Suzanne’s career in this industry took shape in the marketing department of a fintech company responsible for an entire event portfolio including 6 large exhibition events across London and the wider UK. Being on the client side of events gave her first-hand knowledge of all aspects of organising large-scale events and eventually brought her to being recruited by an exclusive use venue on the Surrey/Hampshire borders, organising high-end events for Fortune500 organisations and, on occasions, society weddings!
More recently, Suzanne has worked in the hotel/hospitality sector, having worked for the Park Plaza Hotel Group with an extensive portfolio of London hotels with very high room inventory, perfect for housing and providing accommodation for large-scale congresses. More latterly, she worked at The Grove in Hertfordshire.
Suzanne joined London & Partners in September 2016 where she heads up the Associations team at the London Convention Bureau, attracting mainly international association events and congresses to the Capital
