Stockholmsmässan announced as winner of the UFI Operations & Services Award 2018

This year’s award focused on smart and innovative technologies that deliver benefits and facilitate the work of venues, exhibitors and event managers. All submitted entries were carefully reviewed by the UFI Operations & Services Committee on 6 July 2018 at the UFI headquarters in Paris. Every entry showcased a valuable project and the shortlist included: IFEMA (Spain), Corferias (Colombia), Milton Exhibits (China), EACA (Oregon) and Stockholmsmässan (Sweden). However, after thorough consideration, Stockholmsmässan was chosen as the winner.

“All the entries shared experiences and best practices that bring innovation and efficiency to our industry. However, Roboplotter demonstrated a real increase in measurable productivity for exhibition operations,” said Giacomo Lucchini, Chair of the UFI Operations & Services Committee.

“We are honoured to receive this award. Together with our partner Intelligent Machines, we have spent many years fine-tuning this concept to arrive at the robust and stable product you see today. Roboplotter massively facilitates lean production processes and we are happy to have this opportunity to inspire the entire UFI community with this solution,” commented Andreas Holmgren, IT Director at Stockholmsmässan.
