The GCC’s growth strategy includes extending its venue management contracts internationally, launching the new Vox conference centre at Resorts World in 2015, continued management of The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) and maintaining the presence of the International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham.

Boyle joined The CCD as director of events & hospitality ahead of the venue’s launch, before progressing to event operations director. His new role will see him split his time between The CCD and the ICC.

Managing director of GCC Nick Waight said: "The role of director of event services has been created to help us to drive world class customer service and operational efficiency across all the GCC venues.

"During Allan’s five years at The CCD, he has embodied our value of ‘a relentless passion for exceptional service’ and has played a major role in The CCD’s reputation for uncompromising excellence. I look forward to working with Allan as he takes full operational responsibility for all GCC venues."
