Clarion Retail Strengthens Its Marketing Team

Francesca Sequeira (Franky), who joined Clarion Retail in 2021, has been promoted to senior marketing executive.

My passion for the retail industry is undeniable, and over the last two and a half years with Clarion I have had the opportunity to work on the industry’s top shows,together with a fantastic team, which has been a wonderful, fun and rewarding experience,” Franky told

“Having worked in the retail industry for over ten years, I have seen the changes and challenges it has faced and am driven to help support our exhibitors and visitors tackle these head on,” she continues. “With the introduction of initiatives like the Business Hub, I believe in the importance of trade shows being the meeting place for the retail industry where we can all connect, learn and support one another. I look forward to launching 2024’s edition of Home & Gift and Top Drawer’s Autumn/Winter show alongside the team at Clarion.”

During this time, she’s taken on ownership of various marketing initiatives across the portfolio. We continue to receive fantastic feedback around her customer service, highlighting her determination to constantly go ‘above and beyond’ for our clients. We therefore look forward to seeing more of the same as we continue to grow our events through the remainder of 2024 and beyond.”
