About us Our team Board Gini Gabbertas MBE During a 35 year career in the international events business, Gini led the pioneering trade fair company, Fairs & Exhibitions Ltd, which from the 1980’s onwards was instrumental in creating high-profile industry events in the Middle East. Working in close collaboration with Government and business leaders in the Gulf and wider Asia region, she specialised in delivering trade opportunities for a broad range of industries such as construction, power generation, water technology, healthcare, and education, ultimately focusing on a 20-year programme developing the Dubai Airshow which continues to be one of the world’s leading forums for the aerospace and civil aviation sectors. In 2002 Gini was awarded an MBE for services to industry and exports. Since stepping down from her business in 2009, Gini has immersed herself in the world of opera and classical music and now supports several performing arts organisations, whilst being keen to help young artists develop their careers. Other key interests are property development and her voluntary work includes hands-on involvement fundraising for charitable organisations.
