UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, has appointed Géraud de Dieuleveult as Business Development Manager.
Géraud follows on the work of Nick Dugdale-Moore, who was recently appointed Regional Manager Europe at UFI.
Géraud brings over eleven years of exhibition industry experience to his new position. In 2008 he started as a sales manager for Reed Midem before moving to Berlin.
There he led business development activities in Africa, Europe, and North America. His international career path includes eight years in Germany before returning to France as a sales manager for Comexposium. Géraud has extensive experience in sales and sponsorship within the exhibition industry.
As Business Development Manager, Géraud will liaise with UFI Members and exhibition industry stakeholders to increase their visibility and build networking opportunities within the industry. Géraud’s first challenge is coming very soon, as the UFI’s 86th Global Congress will take place at the beginning of November in Bangkok, Thailand.
Sonia Thomas, UFI's Director of Operations / COO, commented: "We would like to extend an enthusiastic welcome to Géraud as he joins the UFI global team. We are happy to welcome someone of Géraud’s caliber to our team. Géraud's extended industry knowledge will be a definite advantage in providing ever more value to UFI membership, and to the industry as a whole."
