The BACD ceased trading at the end of last year and will be registered as a dormant company once the audit of its accounts has been completed.
Members of the BACD have since become partner members of Eventia, taking the total number of members up to more than 300.

Eventia CEO Izania Downie will still remain as the face of the association as well as being in overall control of the management team. Tony Rogers will take on the role of project director, while Tracy Johnson will become marketing services director.

"These are exciting times for Eventia, despite the challenges and difficulties posed by the global economic slowdown and credit squeeze," said Downie.

"With this new team structure in place, Eventia and its members now benefit from the strongest team the association has ever seen," said Eventia chair Patick Collins.
