Lynn Felton, the new director of The British Exhibition Contractors
Association (BECA) has outlined her vision for the trade body.
Felton, who replaces Joan Turner, joins from Olympia where she worked
for 18 months as an event manager. She was previously a partner at Derek
Felton Exhibitions for 15 years.
"There is a serious skills shortage within the contracting sector,
especially in the areas of electrics and carpentry," said Felton. "We
will be working with member companies to identify their training and
educational requirements and develop programmes that meet these needs."
