This year’s award focused on the best initiatives in the exhibition industry that have demonstrated clear improvements in operations and services thanks to the use of SMART technology.

Every entry showcased a valuable project and the shortlist included Coconnex (UK) and IFEMA (Spain). However, after thorough consideration, Tüyap was chosen as the winner.

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

It encourages us to continue investing time and effort in developing innovative solutions to increase the productivity of our operations and quality of our service,” comments Murat Düzenli, Strategic Marketing Group Assistant Director at Tüyap Fairs and Exhibition Organization Inc.

The main objective of the UFI Operations & Services Award is to honour those in the exhibition industry who have successfully implemented creative and results-oriented initiatives. It rewards the use of SMART and innovative technology to improve events.
