What is our mission?
Any topic that moves our customers in the exhibition world moves the UFI Marketing Working Group. This working group takes a customer-centric perspective on industry matters related to the marketing of trade fairs, exhibition venues and related services. It provides a platform to benchmark new concepts, develop ideas and exchange experience.
How do we accomplish our mission?
We do this mainly through the following activities:
- Showcase best practice examples through the annual Marketing Award programme
- Use working group meetings as discussion forums
- Conduct specific marketing research studies
- Organise Marketing Forums for and by marketing experts
Who can join us?
UFI member employees who are marketing experts and want to voluntarily push this topic are invited to apply for membership.
Marketing Working Group Members
What are the tasks of a group member?
We expect an ongoing and proactive contribution from each member to the group and participation in annual working group meetings, as well as help with promoting the group’s activities. The Marketing Working Group annually organises approximately three face-to-face meetings to discuss working group matters and industry trends. These meetings are traditionally organised alongside UFI Regional Conferences and the Global Congress. In addition, depending on availabilities and needs, it is at the Chair’s discretion to suggest additional face-to-face meetings or set up conference calls throughout the year.
