Giwees – the ‘Google’ of the Event and Exhibition Industry

A unique new platform for the Events and Exhibition industry Giwees is a brilliant place for those wishing to advertise their businesses and services. It’s available in English and many other languages and serves to connect all people in the Events and Exhibition niche around the world bringing in more customers and potential partners. Gino Harteel, the founder of Giwees, explains that ​ Event and Exhibition companies, products and services are now all scattered over the internet, which makes them hard to find a lot of the time. “Giwees wants to combine all event and exhibition companies, products and services into one worldwide platform, by offering this service for free in all countries and languages. Giwees is becoming the worldwide reference website in this industry”, says Gino.

Gino Harteel grew up in a small seaside village in Belgium. At the age of 16 he studied in the USA for one year as an exchange student, and this was the first time Gino experienced another culture and lived in another country. He now regularly travels across the globe establishing partnerships and developing his exciting project. Gino started in the exhibition industry in 2007 with projects in Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, England and Spain and on June 6, 2012 he had a vision to connect all people working in and for the event and exhibition industry.

On August 3, 2015, after traveling all over the globe sharing his vision with people in the events industry and after extensive testing, a new website came online for people who work in and for the events and exhibition niche. Anyone working in or for the industry can advertise their company, product or service free of charge on Giwees. All the information is kept in a large database and connected to Giwees Search, a sophisticated search engine which provides visitors with access to the listed companies according to relevance and importance. The Giwees free search engine provides basic information, but for more detailed searches Giwees offers a paid membership: Giwees VIP Members can access the complete database, find all available information and contact all listed companies directly. Giwees Free Members can ​introduce their​ company, event, exhibition, product or service worldwide in English and in many local languages and include text, images and video​.

Aside from offering free advertising for anyone working in and for the event and exhibition industry, free basic search and paid full search service, Giwees offers affiliate membership, which is a marvelous way to get more income online. Affiliates who promote Giwees to industry professionals receive a generous commission with recurring monthly commission payments.

“The # 1 reason why I decided to create Giwees was the lack of an all-in-one platform for this industry, information was scattered, unorganized and difficult to find. Event and exhibition listings were present online but additional products and services were often very hard to find and some businesses were not listed at all! I was driving back home from an exhibition in Nantes, France to Belgium and I was thinking about offering a solution for this issue. On that day, June 6 in 2012, during that long drive, I had a vision for Giwees. A month later during my vacation, I started writing down that vision and spent 3 weeks working really hard. Having a vision is great but I had no idea if this industry was ready for my vision, so during the 3 following years I traveled from continent to continent and discussed my vision to small, medium and major players in the event and exhibition niche.​ In August 2015 Giwees was launched in Dubai, UAE, a major hub for the exhibition industry”, tells Gino.

Giwees is built following the KISS principle (Keep it simple, stupid” – a design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960), keeping it simple and short, menus and information are easy to navigate and search results are listed according to relevance and importance. “In 5 years time I see Giwees to be the absolute # 1 website for event and exhibition searches and submissions for event companies, products and services. It is my dream to offer more than 15,000 families worldwide a full time income online through Giwees”, says Gino.


Giwees stands for Gino’s Worldwide Event and Exhibition Service.
