ODV move from strength to strength with a new director onboard

Opening Doors & Venues Ltd (OD&V) are pleased to officially announce that long time employee, and former apprentice of the trade, Madalina Marincas, has joined the Board of Directors.

Ever since Rose Padmore (Director and Professional Conference Organiser) raised her first invoice for conference and event organising services 21 years ago, the Company has continued to go from strength to strength. OD&V became incorporated in 2019 with husband Gordon coming on board as a fellow director.  

The Company’s activities always focused on delivering in-person events, mainly recurring annual conferences, workshops, seminars, awards ceremonies, and milestone project celebrations for clients in the not-for-profit and local, regional, combined authority arena. OD&V has successfully survived the recession of 2008 and, most recently, the toughest year experienced by the events industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now a Full PCO member of the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO), Madalina has been working alongside Rose since 2012 and has proven herself to be indispensable in managing client’ projects and developing relationships with suppliers and partners.

“Change is a constant now more than ever in our profession and I am pleased to be part of ensuring OD&V thrives in this evolving landscape. I appreciate all the support that I have received at OD&V over the years and look forward to continue learning and progressing so that we can reach other important milestones as a strong team.”

Following the recent appointment of OD&V as Association and Conference Manager for the British Medical Laser Association (BMLA) and recently launching a partnership with Meet Cambridge, the OD&V team is busier than ever before. 

“With a healthy-looking calendar of events for the next 2 years, we felt that the time was right to share the load and develop Madalina’s role”, said Rose. “The future is certainly looking brighter than it was a year ago, as we have expanded our services to include association and membership management. What a way to celebrate our 21st year of trading!”
