Theme: Embracing change and looking forward to the future!

Our industry’s landscape is changing. With economic outlooks, trade policies, smart technology integration and other challenges it is our task to stay abreast of these changes. Regional nuances, the economic instability, and the need for digital communities to meet in person will all impact how we plan for the future – the question is how? And to what extent do we value return on investment and the expectations and needs of the visitor?

By analysing behaviours, we can get a good insight into what to expect and how the resources we have at our disposal will impact our own best practices.

Join us in Dubai, 8-9th April, for UFI’s Middle East & Africa Conference, to look to the future and how we can change our industry for the next generation of customers.
