The main objectives of the Regional Chapters are to discuss specific problems and ideas concerning their region, to encourage cooperation between members within their region, and to promote UFI in their region and encourage additional membership.

Dealing with particular tasks and interests relevant to the tradeshow sectors of a given region, they are a good way of increasing professionalism and quality of trade fairs/exhibitions through closer cooperation.
