GES appoints new management positions for Event Intelligence in Europe and the Middle East


GES has expanded their client service team for their Event Intelligence business and appointed Daryl Burgess and Ali Shah to customer support managers for the UK and Middle East, respectively. Both individuals bring multifaceted experience to the company’s exhibition clients, and their contributions were critical in the successful delivery of the UK government pilot required to restart the live events industry.

“The last year has been an extremely challenging time for our industry. We are delighted to expand our team and helping our valued clients deliver more events, and even larger shows. The news of these recent appointments highlights GES’ commitment to excellent client service, and our belief that attendees are ready to return to live events. Ali and Daryl are talented and experienced professionals that are consistently putting their clients first. I know their regions will benefit greatly under their leadership,” said Gerard Conway, Director, Event Intelligence.

Ali Shah joined GES in 2016 and has recently relocated to Dubai after working as a support engineer. His wealth of product knowledge and attention to client satisfaction made him the ideal candidate for the position. Daryl Burgess is a highly experienced professional that has worked in the live-events industry for over 12 years. He was promoted to the role after working for GES as a support engineer out of the Coventry office. His ability to curate the right culture and working environment, coupled with his fantastic client care, will provide a solid foundation as GES scales its client support team across EMEA.
