ISES has announced the creation of a new EMEA Community Relations Committee, which is aimed at boosting relationships between ISES EMEA chapters and ISES chapters globally.

GPJ VP Sales & Marketing EMEA Kevin Jackson will chair the new committee, joined by Mike Smith of Showforce, Middle East chapter; Michelle Taynton of Eventive Communication, UK Chapter and freelancer Dilsah Demir of the Central European chapter.

Jackson said: "I am delighted to take on this role. I believe passionately in ISES and I believe passionately in a globally connected events industry. Brands do not think in geographic silos and ISES needs to be ever quicker and ever more connected if we are to truly deliver for our members."

Chair of ISES EMEA James Morgan added: "Jackson’s committee is a big boost for ISES EMEA. The region faces considerable structural and marketing challenges. With the new committee facilitating a broad marketing and communications strategy, I believe we can create better value for members as well as greater visibility for ISES as the only international association that represents creative event professionals."
