A North Tyneside woman has become the first person in her new role at one of the region’s most iconic landmarks.

Amy Smith has been appointed the new conference and events sales manager at The Sage Gateshead.

The position has been created by the registered charity to underline its credentials as a corporate events and conference venue within key sectors and on a national scale.

Originally from Cumbria but now living in Wallsend, Amy previously worked at Accent Magazine, Media 10 and Benchmark Communications.

She said: “My job is now to ensure that The Sage Gateshead is front of mind with organisations across the UK, whether they need a venue for a conference, exhibition, awards or client hospitality.

“With our award-winning facilities and such an amazing looking building, hopefully people will very quickly realise we have something very special and worthwhile to offer.”
