dmg events, a leading international events company, has appointed Mel Shah as Vice President of its Energy Sector, Asia.
Shah will grow the company’s energy events in Asia, which currently include Bangkok’s

“Mel has a deep understanding of operating successful entrepreneurial ventures in Asia and
India,” said Christopher Hudson, President of dmg events. “The addition of his expertise
and senior leadership experience to our energy portfolio in South East Asia will help us capitalise on the opportunities this region offers our growing business.”

Shah’s two decades of experience span the energy, digital, manufacturing, food and hospitality sectors in Asia. Previous roles have seen him develop business units for organisations such as Montgomery Exhibitions, Fiera Milano, Deutsche Messe, Messe Frankfurt India and Informa. He has also had successful entrepreneurial ventures building his own trade fair operations.Shah is set to take over a strong portfolio of energy events that already enjoy ministerial patronage and support from each of their host nations. Government support is underpinned
by the involvement of dmg events’ global key accounts, stakeholders and partners. Shah will develop these existing events further with the help of his ambitious and diverse team
in Singapore. In addition, he will look to build new launch businesses in Asia to consolidate

dmg events’ position in this fast-growing region.
“dmg events’ established global portfolio, driven leadership and my growth-focused remit in this exciting and diverse region is an amazing opportunity, one which I am proud to have,” said Shah. “I am looking forward to building our portfolio of energy events in the region, creating new launches and working alongside our young team.”
