Themes for 2020 UFI Awards announced

UFI has announced the launch of the 2020 UFI Awards, designed to acknowledge and honour best practices and outstanding activities across the industry. For the first time, the 2020 UFI Awards will include an Industry Partners Award, which recognises partners who demonstrate innovative concepts, creative campaigns or original projects that drive the success of the exhibition world. The awards and themes for 2020 are: "Corporate culture as a competitive advantage" for the HR Management Award, "Multi-channel, cross-generational marketing" for the Marketing Award, "Business innovation" for the Industry Partners Award, "What is digital innovation for you?" for the Digital Innovation Award, "Best industry cooperation to enhance customer experience" for the Operations & Services Award, and "Best waste management" for the Sustainable Development Award. "UFI's award scheme focuses on identifying and sharing best practices in our industry and serves to feature innovative, ground-breaking solutions. By sharing these experiences globally, we contribute to the growth of our industry and can introduce pioneering ideas," says Kai Hattendorf, UFI's managing director and CEO. This award programme, globally recognised for more than a decade, is open to exhibition organisers, venue operators and service providers, both members and non-members. There is no participation fee. Entries should reflect the theme of each category, decided upon by UFI Working Groups – industry experts who manage and lead the UFI Awards. The entry deadline for all categories is March 6, 2020. Winners in each category will receive their awards during an official ceremony at the UFI Global Congress, taking place in Muscat (Oman) from November 9 to 12, 2020.
