GES is readying for 'significant' growth in the Middle East in 2017 by appointing Patrick Lukan as chief operating officer for the region.

The event management company says recent high profile wins such as its official contract with Dubai World Trade Centre and the Tarsus food and events portfolio, will see its activity in the Middle East expand further this year.

It comes after the company delivered more than 80 events in 2016.

Patrick Lukan joins GES from CityJet and will help facilitate the 'next level' of growth.

Jason Popp, EVP, International, said: "I am incredibly proud of what the GES Middle East team has achieved. From modest beginnings only seven years ago, we have become the region’s live event ‘partner of choice’ by combining outstanding quality of service and the widest available suite of services and products, both physical and digital.

"Patrick’s appointment reflects our ambition for the next level of growth. He brings global, senior level experience to the leadership team and will help us develop our already strong operational delivery as we scale the business."
