OpenRoom is based in London and was founded in 2004 with a launch business forum in India. The company initially specialised in oil and gas but has expanded its portfolio to include events covering retail, healthcare (dental, pharmacy, optical/audio) and veterinary.
At the heart of everything we do are our company values. We care about our clients and about building events that deliver value to all our delegates. Our business depends on nurturing strong relationships with customers, business partners and suppliers. Everyone in our team is committed to delivering results and high quality events for our delegates. We foster an entrepreneurial spirit, not just seeking feedback but acting on it. We're proud of what we do; always learning, always improving.
Annabel has been with OpenRoom since 2008, and before that worked for two major London advertising agencies. As OpenRoom's first employee, she's had almost every role in the company bar Managing Director. Now she has finally found her niche taking care of the company's marketing and creative output. With an eagle eye for detail, she keeps a check on pantone colours, fonts and the OpenRoom team's design disasters ;-)
Hannah has been with OpenRoom since 2009, she has had many roles within the company, but one constant has been her obsession to make the team work smarter not harder. Now as Projects Manager, she is driving efficiencies within the company, researching and utilising the latest technologies to move the company forward. Her unofficial role is to keep the team smiling with as many colourful outfits and hair styles she can muster.
Dominic joined the business during the pandemic after graduating from Newcastle University. He helped launch the company’s virtual and hybrid products and is now part of the sales team, looking after ReFuel clients around the world. In his spare time, he designs OpenRoom’s branded sportswear and takes the Chairman on lunchtime walks.
Joss's sales and events experience began with a London based flower delivery company - he spent the vast majority of the pandemic delivering flowers on a 300kg cargo bike! He is a recent addition to our sales team and has taken the reins on recruiting diverse and interesting suppliers to our DentalForums. When not at work, he can be found chilling in South East London with his fiancée and an African land snail.
Lucy is a recent graduate from the University of Sydney where she studied Spanish and French. She is part of the buyer recruitment team and works to keep our clients involved and up to date on the events. As the token non-Aussie Aussie, she likes nothing better than drinking stubbies and slapping another shrimp on the barbie.

Humphrey splits his time between responsibilities of Mischief Maker and Chief Taste Tester. He maintains a high level of office morale and it's only a matter of time before he's running the place!
Flo takes her responsibilities as Head of Security very seriously, monitoring everyone who comes and gos, and barking loudly when she's not sure. When she's not securing the premises, she rampages with Humphrey chasing tennis balls.
