Las Vegas, NV – Global Experience Specialists (GES) has acquired London-based Blitz Communications in an effort to bolster its already-robust audio-visual services in the U.K.

Blitz Communications specializes in the live event market and adds expertise in creative AV services such as digital media, lighting, theater, graphics, audio and video. The company has assisted in staging exhibitions, product launches, awards dinners, conferences, general meetings and road shows for the past 25 years. It is the in-house provider at five major conference centers in the U.K. including ExCeL London, Earls Court, Olympia, Manchester Central, and the NEC.

The addition of Blitz Communications to the GES portfolio will enable the combined company to provide a full suite of services in the U.K., Europe and the Middle East as well as in the U.S., according to GES President Steve Moster. “Providing AV services is a key part of our strategy to become the preferred full-service partner for the global live events market, and the addition of Blitz complements our AV service in the U.S.”

The acquisition also places GES at the forefront of a well-established and leading position in the U.K. audio-visual market, according to GES Executive Vice President of International Business Jason Popp.
