Program provides temporary work opportunities for experienced exhibition talent
GES is pleased to announce an industry-wide Flex Talent Pool program offering flexible, temporary work opportunities for experienced exhibition professionals. In anticipation of exhibitions returning in 2021, the new Flex Talent Pool will be first introduced in the U.S., covering key locations where shows are expected to occur.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and events abruptly canceling, thousands of experienced and talented tradeshow personnel lost employment,” says Jeff Quade (pictured right), EVP of Exhibitions. “As shows and events begin to come back safely, we want to prioritize work opportunities for those talented and skilled exhibition employees that have been so pivotal to the success of our industry.”
Upon launch, the goal is to join forces with other leading industry suppliers to offer experienced exhibition talent a broader opportunity for flexible employment. GES is partnering with a third-party staffing agency to help recruit, on-board and manage the Flex Talent Pool.
