The Markets we Serve

The Live Events industry is a large market and GES serves all major segments with a dominant position in Exhibitions. We are pursuing a focused and disciplined growth strategy, with the goal of expanding our share in the currently under-penetrated Corporate Event and Conference segments. These segments offer strong growth opportunity with a higher margin profile than Exhibitions, which will help to improve profitability and diversify our revenue mix over the long-term.

Exhibitions

The primary purpose is to facilitate B2B & B2C sales/marketing. Host and exhibitors typically pay for services.

Conferences

The primary purpose is to facilitate attendee education; expo or trade show may be held in conjunction to further facilitate attendee education. Host and exhibitors typically pay for services.

Corporate Events

The primary purpose is to facilitate attendee education of sponsoring company’s products or product ecosystem. Corporation or host pays for services.

Consumer Events

The primary purpose is to entertain, educate or create an experience, typically around a specific genre.

GES offers a comprehensive and award-winning range of services and innovative technology, including creative design, strategy, audio visual, show production and event accommodations to help our clients maximize performance and achieve their visions through face-to-face experiences. In connection with our focused growth strategy, we have made important acquisitions of leading Audio-Visual (AV) production and Event Technology firms. These new services are a perfect complement to our Core Services. They also have higher-margins and provide a more compelling offering to penetrate Corporate Events and Conferences where AV is larger portion of the total spend.
