AEG Ogden has announced that convention and exhibition industry veteran Frank Mohren will be joining the group in a venue development role.
Mr Mohren recently left the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre after 15 years as its Director of Operations and where he oversaw development of the AUD 350M convention centre expansion which opened in July 2009.
AEG Ogden CEO Mr Harvey Lister said in announcing Mr Mohren’s appointment that he will be involved primarily in assisting with the establishment and start up of the group’s new convention centre projects.
“We are currently expanding the number of facilities we have under management across the Asia Pacific region so Frank’s extensive experience in opening and operating major venues and hotels, both in Australia and internationally, makes him a very welcome addition to our specialist management team” Mr Lister said.
Mr Mohren’s initial assignment will be with the AEG Ogden managed Qatar National Convention Centre currently under construction in Doha and due for completion in the second half of 2011.
