UFI announces dates and format for Spring conferences in 2021

UFI, the global association for the exhibition industry, has announced the dates and format for its Spring Conferences 2021.

The UFI Asia-Pacific Conference will take place online on 20 May, the UFI MEA Conference will take place on site in Dubai on 26 May, and the UFI European Conference will take place online from 9-10 June.

Registration for the events will be open later in March. Pre-registration is already open at this link.

The association says it is “committed to holding regional conferences this spring, in line with the association’s mission and responsibility to connect and bring together the exhibition industry.”

Kai Hattendorf, UFI’s CEO and managing director, said: “UFI is witnessing the need and request from the industry to meet again. We are thrilled to offer the MEA Conference as an in-person event in Dubai, given the fact that business events resumed there in December 2020.

“However, the ongoing pandemic situation and the existing travel restrictions both across the Asia-Pacific region and Europe have led us to run the respective conferences there as online events.”
