Melville Data Services Beat Rivals to the Summit

4th August 2009

Melville Data Services, a GES Worldwide Network company, announced today their appointment to deliver comprehensive registration services for the World Future Energy Summit 2010 in Abu Dhabi, UAE next January.

“The World Future Energy Summit is recognised as the world’s platform for sustainable future energy solutions,” comments Melville Data Services, Managing Director, Fergus McGoldrick. “It is a great honour for us to be involved in such a high profile networking event for world and industry leaders.”

Together with other co-located exhibitions, the World Future Energy Summit 2009 attracted 18,420 visitors from 84 countries, including 144 official delegations representing 19 countries, 1,124 conference delegates, 200 key speakers, 804 VIPs and 734 accredited media. Included among these were representatives from political, business, scientific, policy and educational backgrounds, including royalty, heads of state, ministers and other senior government officials, Green celebrities as well as CEOs, investors, scientists, energy leaders and industry professionals.

“We work very closely with Reed Exhibitions in the U.K., but winning the World Future Energy Summit 2010 business was achieved purely on our Middle East capabilities,” says McGoldrick. “The team that put the winning bid together listened to the client’s specific requirements and tailored our products and offering to ensure that Melville Data Services would more than satisfy the high levels of service and operation required for such a prestigious event. My team is 110% professional, so I had no doubt at all that we had submitted a bid capable of winning. It is thrilling to have been selected from such stiff competition, and we are now relishing the opportunity to dive into the complexities of the project.”

Commenting on Melville Middle East, Reed Exhibitions Middle East Show Manager, Ms. Hayete Jemai stated:

“Melville Data Services came to us with a reputation as a serious, professional and experienced supplier to big and important exhibitions. We wouldn’t have spoken with any company that wasn’t. The tender that Fergus and his team put together ticked all the boxes and more. What impressed us was that they really understood our requirements and offered solutions and innovations that we believe will be of true benefit to the event, saving work while adding value. I’m looking forward to working closely with them.”

“Our global relationship with Reed Exhibitions is a true partnership with both parties striving to deliver the best possible outcomes for exhibitors and visitors,” notes Melville Exhibition & Event Services Ltd Chief Executive Officer, Nick Marshall. “Since the launch of our subsidiary, Melville Middle East, in October last year we have steadily expanded our offering to organisers, winning business in the Middle East. This new appointment by Reed Exhibitions Middle East reaffirms our partnership, confirming Melville Data Services’ reinvigoration under its new Managing Director, Fergus McGoldrick, as well as giving wider recognition to Melville Exhibition & Event Services as a truly global player.”
