AEG Ogden Group Director, Convention Centres, Geoff Donaghy said a global search was now underway to ensure the best possible candidate was selected for this world class venue, due to open in 2016.

“This is a unique opportunity to oversee a pre-opening team in a ‘greenfield’ destination. The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre offers both a rewarding and challenging experience and the opportunity to work with a number of internationally credentialed professionals.

He said it was an exciting time leading up to the opening of the company’s seventh convention and exhibition centre in the Middle East and Asia Pacific region.

“The beauty and diversity of the Sultanate of Oman has not only gained strong interest from international organisations to host future congresses and exhibitions at the Centre, but has also attracted strong interest in career opportunities on a global scale,” Mr. Donaghy said.
