GES Invites Expo! Expo! Attendees to Experience the Idea Gallery in Booth #1127

One of many brilliant experiences GES has planned for attendees to
engage and learn

a global full-service provider for live events, invites International
Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) Expo!
Expo! attendees
to engage with the GES team in a myriad of
experiences. GES recognizes the pressure that show organizers feel to
bring the next big idea, and GES has created a space to spark new ideas
– welcome to the Idea Gallery in booth #1127. Attendees are invited to
take GES’ Genius Survey and find out their genius/artist type – a wild
child like Warhol, part art and science like da Vinci or analytical and
imaginative like Einstein. From there, attendees will enjoy a creative
juice and design a terrarium, based on their genius/artist type.

While visiting GES’ booth, guests will also learn about GES Project
Central, the only event management platform that empowers show
organizers to seamlessly manage every element of an event – before,
during and after the show – all from one centralized portal. GES Project
Central builds on the core functionality of its predecessor, GES
Connect, and adds robust functionality that truly enables event planning
at your fingertips. Optimized for laptop, tablet or mobile devices with
customized views for pre/post show and at show, it brings the entire
team together to help streamline communications, reduce errors, and save

“Whether planning a large global exhibition or a smaller regional event,
GES brings bright ideas and the latest technology, through GES Project
Central, to achieve meaningful results,” said GES Chief Sales Officer
Jeff Quade.
