Our Mission, Purpose and Core Values


For over 90 years, GES has been delivering extraordinary exhibition experiences to connect people to experiences, innovation, and one another. 

We are excited to share how we incorporate our mission, purpose, and core values into everything we do, as we work together to support your show.


Our Core Values represent how we see each other and want the world to see us. The most important of these is trust. We will continue to maintain the highest level of integrity in every interaction.

The next core value is responsibility, and while we continue to be responsible and deliver on commitments as always, we also include environmental sustainability in that tenet. GES remains steadfastly dedicated to incorporating a sustainable approach when partnering with you on exhibitions, recycling, and repurposing whenever possible.

The third core value is understanding because our most valuable asset is our people. We treat each other with compassion and grace, as our varied experiences only enrich the work we do together. That extends to you, our partners, as well.

The final core value is excellence. GES has always provided our clients and partners with the best service and execution available. This forever remains true.

 At GES, we are committed to creating unforgettable exhibition experiences with and for you, our valued partners. Our dedication to our industry and commitment to you is unwavering, and we look forward to continued success.
