AEO AWARDS:Melville's Marshall rewarded for outstanding contribution

The chief executive of Melville Event and Exhibition Services and a subsidiary of the GES Exposition Network, Nick Marshall, was awarded the highest of honours at the Association of Event Organisers Awards, today, for his outstanding contribution to the exhibition and events industry.

At a packed Earls Court Two, and enjoying some home-made sustainability by sharing infrastructure with an event the previous night, the UK exhibitions fraternity turned out in its droves to see a well deserved award handed out to an industry officer and gentleman who has masterminded the survival and growth of the largest UK exhibition services contractor amid torrid commoditisation within the sector.

It wasn’t all a Melville fairy tale, though, as a resurgent Opex Group picked up a number of contracting awards through its own subsidiary, Stanco Exhibitions, and it wasn’t until late in the day that Melville enjoyed a second visit to the podium for Service Supplier of the Year.

So, without further ado, here are the winners and riders:

The exhibition association event enjoyed excellent hosting with Rob Brydon bringing a sense of proportion to the significance of the gathering as did Jane Risby-Rose`s excellent tribute to Marshall following the usual grandee opener.

Well done to the winners, and the biggest salute has to go to the much respected Nick Marshall.
