1st August 2011

Reed Exhibition’s Chairman Mike Rusbridge heads an impressive list of senior industry figures who have recently signed up to attend September’s Global Event Summit, 7 – 9 September at Syon Park, London. 

Other high profile delegates newly committed to attending the Summit include: Alastair Gornall, Centaur Media plc, UK; Christopher Hudson Clarion Events, Middle East, UAE; Eric Préat, easyFairs, Belgium; Humaid Al Dhaheri, ADNEC, UAE; David Audrain, Messe Frankfurt North America, USA; Paul Dunne, EMAP Connect, UK; Simon Foster, UBM, UK; Simon Parker, UBM, UK; Michael Watton, Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE; and Daniel Londero, Reed Exhibitions, UK.

GES has also announced the attendance of Paul Dunne of EMAP who is taking part in the Summit for the first time. This comes in the wake of the recent establishment of ‘Emap Brooks’, a joint venture company launched to take EMAP brands to new territories.             

Simon Kimble, GES 2011 chairman and Clarion Events, UK says, “GES will delve deep and take an extremely close look at how the industry is evolving throughout the world. You really don't want to miss it!”

Trevor Foley, tfconnect managing director adds, “Senior industry figures value the fact that GES provides a unique and confidential platform for the international exhibition industry to hold frank and open debate on the state and direction of the industry. Essentially we ensure that the summit sessions are closed to the outside world in order to foster an environment where delegates can speak freely. As a result the quality and scope of the Summit content fuels fascinating discussions to the benefit of everyone attending.”

GES takes place on 7 - 9 September 2011 at London’s Syon Park, a brand new Waldorf Astoria five star resort hotel, and is exclusively attended by 130 event industry chairmen, CEO’s, MD’s, board, portfolio and divisional directors from around the globe.
