Allan Boyle has been appointed to the new role of Director of Event Services, Group Convention Centres (GCC), at the NEC Group, to support the GCC’s growth plans.
He commences his new role on 1 September 2014.
The GCC’s growth strategy includes extending its venue management contracts internationally, launching the new Vox conference centre at Resorts World in 2015, continued management of The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) and maintaining the presence of the International Convention Centre Birmingham as a leading conference venue.
Boyle has been a key member of The CCD since 2009 when he took on his initial role as Director of Events and Hospitality, spearheading operational mobilisation ahead of the venue’s launch. He then progressed to Event Operations Director. As part of his new role Boyle will split his time between The CCD and the ICC.
“I’m delighted to join the GCC senior management team as Director of Event Services,” says Boyle. “In our ever-changing and highly-competitive market place we cannot afford to stand still, and I am committed to delivering excellence for GCC and our clients.”
Nick Waight, Managing Director of Group Convention Centres, adds: “The role of Director of Event Services has been created to help us drive world class customer service and operational efficiency across all the GCC venues. I have no doubt Allan’s commitment to high standards will help us to deliver our ambitious strategy for GCC and look forward to working with Allan as he takes full operational for all GCC venues.”
