The 2021 UFI Operations and Services Award


Operations and services entities (venues, organisers and suppliers) within the events industry have been seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Historic partnerships are under pressure, and risk of business failure has increased, which, in turn, is negatively impacting on the delivery and quality of events. And this looks set to continue into the future. To bring about change, operations and services entities need to work in partnership to support businesses across the industry and be pivotal actors during this time of major upheaval.

The UFI Operations and Services Award 2021 will recognise the best completed or ongoing communal (two-way or three-way) projects or concepts.

The jury has identified the following three finalists:

  • AsiaWorld-Expo
  • Fira Barcelona
  • RAI Amsterdam

Congratulations to all three finalists.

The winner shall be identified in the months to come.
