As UFI strengthens its commitment to sustainable development, a number of initiatives are under way. A dedicated UFI Forum on Sustainable Development will be held in May 2020, and is integrating sustainable development themes across many of its other 2020 events, including the UFI European Conference and Global Exhibition Day, which will promote sustainable development as one of its three key themes. The UFI Awards, open for entries until 6 March 2020, will feature a dedicated Sustainable Development Award, recognising best practices in waste management. Two key pieces of UFI research on sustainable development will also be updated in the coming year, including a report on the exhibition industry and Sustainable Development Goals, and the Compendium on Sustainable Development in the Global Exhibitions Industry.
