UFI – the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry – is proceeding with its Global Congress 2020, original host destination Oman having been postponed to 2022. In embodying the “Resilience” theme, UFI said “it is our role and responsibility to provide a trusted platform to connect and bring together our industry.”
Instead of gathering in one place, the congress will be ‘glocalised’ to three cities on three continents as well as online. Dubai will play host on November 15-16 and Basle from November 18 to 20. However, dates for Hong Kong have yet to be finalised. Online attendance stretches from November 15 through 20.
UFI will announce the physical venues soon and is encouraging attendance as the congress is “the exhibition industry’s largest global meeting of the year.”
