Donna Hyland
General Manager - Middle East at GES


Donna is General Manager of GES Middle East and has headed up Operations in the region since 2018. Donna is a highly experienced member of the events industry, with her time before coming to the Middle East being spent with Melville|GES back in the UK since 2001. 

With a mandate to exceed the expectations of our clients in the region, Donna has deftly adapted to life at our GES base in the Middle East to make it her home. She led our efforts on successfully reigniting our industry post-pandemic at Cityscape 2020, delivering a full Show Ready fabric sustainable packaged offering at that event.

On a personal note, Donna enjoys the gym in her spare time, travelling (particularly around Europe), and meeting new people (once bumped into the Queen an a horticultural event)
