Today's announcement adds significant capabilities around live events including corporate events, conferences and exhibitions, GES said. 

"We selected the business of ON Event Services because of its expertise in high-end AV production and extensive library of AV technologies,” said Steve Moster, president of GES and president and chief executive officer of Viad Corp. "The extensive event production capabilities of the business of ON Event Services perfectly complement GES' core live event services for corporate events, exhibitions, conferences and exhibits.”

The acquired business of ON Event Services will operate and go to market as ON Services, a GES Company, and Stan Milner, president of the company, will continue in his role, reporting directly to Moster.

ON Services supports more than 1,000 events per year in vibrant industries, including technology, automotive, and oil and gas, complementing GES' strength and experience in these markets, GES said. Its more than 800 clients include major corporations such as Coca-Cola, INFOR and World Financial Group, agency partners, venues and many leading hotel brand properties, including Marriott, Hilton, Westin, Embassy Suites, and Sheraton. In addition, ON Services is the preferred in-house provider of audio visual services for 30 venues and six major concert facilities. With the addition of ON Services, GES now has more than 85 facilities worldwide.
