The International Exhibition Logistics Association IELA is bringing its Connect event to the African continent: IELA Connect will take place on October 14, 2019 in Marrakech, Morocco at the Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech. It will be IELA's first event in the MENA region to welcome all major professionals from the exhibition industry: organisers, venue owners, associations and press, together with selected local institutions that are significant players in this sector. Additionally, exhibition freight forwarders that are non-IELA members from countries not yet represented by the IELA will be welcomed in order to strengthen even further the network of reliable experts in the region. The aim is to connect and exchange on important issues such as security, OH&S, and sustainable logistics challenges, raising awareness for and the standards of security and sustainability. (kf)
