Global Exhibitions Day

The seventh annual Global Exhibitions Day will take place on 1 June 2022

– This year will mark the seventh edition of Global Exhibitions Day
– GED 2022 celebrates the role of exhibitions in accelerating the pace of economic recovery
– The community is eager to see each other again and to meet new people
– As COVID-19 restrictions end, the industry anticipates a strong and quick recovery
– Everyone associated with the global exhibition industry is encouraged to recognise the day

The 2022 GED campaign will focus on the irreplaceable value of physical exhibitions and face-to-face business events in creating platforms for economic growth and recovery, as well as being the perfect occasion to network and meet new people.

While the event is facilitated by the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, UFI, all businesses and professionals in the sector are encouraged to join the GED celebrations on 1 June 2022 by highlighting the impact of exhibitions on local economies – both in building businesses and connecting people from around the world.
