Following the acquisition of Bright Bricks Simon Horgan has joined the board of LVCG.
He brings a wealth of experience across several industry sectors but most relevant to the future expansion of the business is his knowledge and track record in international exhibition and conference venue management plus event and exhibition portfolio management and development. Simon has been involved in the events and exhibitions sector for over 30 years. For 6 years he was the CEO of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre during which time he raised AED 1.4bn to establish a Capital Centre development for the ADNEC and acquired London's flagship exhibition venue, ExCel, in a £318m deal for the Abu Dhabi government.
Under his leadership the ExCel became the second venue for the 2012 London Olympics.
His legacy in the Emirates includes the successful conclusion of major construction projects such as the ADNEC Marina, several hotels and the Gulf’s largest indoor arena.
Prior to joining ADNEC Simon was the COO for the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, our regular venue for the largest UK Bricklive show. He was responsible for all of the business activities of the NEC which represented 100% of the operating profit. He also acted as a consultant on the development of a further 10 exhibition centres.
Simon’s other fields of expertise include marketing and publications.
