UFI invites the world to join Global Exhibitions Day 2018.

Preparations are underway for Global Exhibitions Day (#GED18) on 6 June 2018, and UFI the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry is inviting people around the world to get involved.

Global Exhibitions Day is a chance to celebrate the exhibition industry and highlight its positive impact on jobs, business, innovation and local investment.
Online, and through an array of national and local events, people on every continent are expected to join the GED18 campaign, from venues and organisers to students, local partners and public authorities.

Together with its industry partners, UFI is currently preparing the material for the #GED18 campaign. All material/toolbox will be shared online. So we invite you to keep an eye on this website. In the meantime join the GED movement on Social Media.
