Registration open

Registration is now open for the UFI Global Congress 2020. The event will take place as a ‘glocalised’ congress for the first time. Instead of focusing the event in one place, the UFI Global Congress 2020 will take place in different destinations as well as online within the course of one week. It will start in Dubai from 15 to 16 November, in Basel from 18 to 20 November, in Hong Kong (dates to be announced), as well as online from 15 to 20 November. UFI will announce the hosts and venues in the upcoming weeks. The main theme will be “Resilience”.

The 2020 Congress host, the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC), will host the event in 2022. In 2021, the UFI Global Congress will take place in Rotterdam. Open to more than 50,000 industry professionals globally, UFI’s Global Congress is known as the exhibition industry’s largest global meeting of the year. It is an opportunity to gain insight into topics of strategic interest, as well as into the trends and challenges that the exhibition industry is currently facing.

“The UFI Global Congress is our industry’s annual global face-to-face meeting. We want to ensure that as many of our colleagues as possible can attend in person. So, this year, we are ‘glocalising’ the UFI Global Congress,” says Mary Larkin, UFI President, and President of Diversified Communications USA.
