The 2013 World Executive Search Congress in Las Vegas

Dillistone Group Plc
(“Dillistone” or the “Company”)
World Executive Search Congress 2013 in Las Vegas

Dillistone Group, through its subsidiary Dillistone Systems, is pleased to announce the start of the World Executive Search Congress 2013 (WESC) in Las Vegas today.  This year’s event follows the highly acclaimed inaugural WESC in 2012 which established itself as a key date in the Search Industry calendar through its unique industry focused events programme, including innovative thought leadership and best practice workshops, senior industry figures in attendance and topical speakers.

The three day event, hosted by the Company's Search-Consult brand, has attracted Executive Search professionals from 30 countries, who will have access to some of the most respected speakers and personalities in and around the industry and have unparalleled networking opportunities.  The event is expected to generate revenues in excess of $100,000 from bookings, sponsorships and exhibitors. 

Dillistone is the organiser and sole comparable technology sponsor of the conference ensuring that it has prominence in the programming of the meeting.  Dillistone will also use WESC 2013 to announce plans to host a European Executive Search Congress in London in November 2013.

Commenting on the event, Jason Starr, Managing Director of Dillistone Systems and Group Chief Executive of Dillistone Group Plc, said:

“The 2012 event was extremely well received, and it is our expectation that the 2013 event will be bigger and better.  With a record number of attendees expected from some 30 countries, I am not aware of a comparable event of this scale.

“The excellent international turn out demonstrates, I believe, the prominence of our Company within the eyes of the industry we serve.  It also creates a unique opportunity for us to market our products and services to an audience of decision makers from across the industry.  We are looking forward to another excellent event in Vegas, and are optimistic about the opportunity to run a similar event in London later this year.”
