Following the postponement of the 15th edition of the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference in Macau due to the COVID-19 outbreak, UFI has confirmed new dates: The UFI Asia-Pacific Conference will be held from August 27 to 28, and the Digital Innovation Forum on August 26, 2020. Registration will be re-opened in March and continue all the way through to the opening of the event. The venue for the conference remains unchanged, The Parisian in Macau. "When the outbreak of the coronavirus left us with no choice but to postpone the conference, we pledged to run the event as soon as possible. Thanks to the great collaboration with our Macau hosts, we can now announce the new dates. Our 15th Asia-Pacific Conference will provide our industry with an important opportunity to meet and to discuss and plot the course ahead after the COVID-19 outbreak", says Kai Hattendorf, UFI CEO. Registrations from industry professionals already received for the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference in Macau will remain valid for the new August dates, unless UFI receives a request to cancel the registration, for which no fee will be charged. The theme of the conference will remain "Thriving in Challenging Times", which was chosen well before the COVID-19 outbreak. In addition to the virus issue, the world is undeniably in a state of change: slowing global economic growth, trade wars, political and economic uncertainty, social unrest, digital disruption. The exhibition industry will need to navigate these risks to continue to thrive in the years ahead. Most of the speakers from the original programme in March will remain on the programme. UFI is in the process of confirming the availability of all speakers and the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference website will be updated in due course. As previously announced, in addition to the Asia-Pacific Conference, the week in Macau will also feature a Digital Innovation Forum (now taking place on August 26), a meeting of UFI's Asia/Pacific Chapter, an association committee meeting and a gathering of the UFI China Club. In addition, post-event tours will be held on Friday after the Asia-Pacific Conference closes .
