Matt Storey

Gallowglass Head of Business Development,Awards Committee

Trained at RADA and joined Gallowglass on a freelance basis at its inception in 1996.

Increased involvement with the company, lead to inclusion in the senior team tasked with the successful delivery of large scale events covering, among others, the Commonwealth Games, G8 & MTV Music Awards.

Exponential growth necessitated the creation of Head of Business Development. The role covers, strategic planning, overall business development throughout the UK and Europe, and responsibility for the expansion drive into the television and theatre sectors.

Matt forms part of the award submissions team. The impact of Gallowglass did not go unnoticed, winning one of the two 'Event Supplier of the Year' Awards for the last four years (CE/LE) and the 'Best Practice' award for work with Health & Safety.


Clearly, Eventia as an association is weighted towards the meeting and incentive travel industry. Both from a company perspective and personally, I would like to see greater involvement and 'buy in' from production companies and agencies alike. This would redress the balance somewhat, enabling a stronger voice to lobby on critical and fundamental issues.

With its broad cross-section and diversity of clients, Gallowglass has often been referred to as "the barometer of the industry". This insight and overview of industry trends is potentially a valuable source of information to Eventia. If utilised correctly, it could be used to improve the overall offering of Eventia to the industry.

I believe that this diversity combined with the viewpoint of the industry from a differing perspective, would represent a major contribution to the board of Eventia.
