Novel Coronavirus – Resources page

 

The World Health Organisation has declared the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus a global health emergency.

UFI is supporting the work of global, regional, and national institutions who deal with the containment of this outbreak.

As part of the meetings industry, exhibitions are both very much affected by protective measures as they are a vital means to support industries in challenging times.

As an industry, we have shown time and again that we are supportive and resilient in difficult times. Our best response to this outbreak is to stay focused and calm.

On this page, we are listing some resources for UFI members and the industry at large.
