Global Exhibitions Day – get involved

by Paul Colston

This year marks the fifth edition of Global Exhibitions Day (GED) when it is celebrated on 3 June 2020.

The theme for GED 2020 is “exhibitions are key to rebuilding economies” and all those associated with the global exhibition industry are encouraged to recognise it as a global day of awareness and advocacy – as never before – for the critical role exhibitions play in getting business and economies back on track.

GED 2020 is actively supported by global association of the exhibition industry UFI and 41 partner associations throughout the world.

GED 2020 represents a coming together of the industry, an occasion to share hope and optimism, and a focus on the important role of exhibitions in reconnecting and rebuilding communities and economies.

The campaign also helps promote the message that face-to-face exhibitions are the fastest way to reconnect with the marketplace, and that the connections made at exhibitions will lead to the renewal of the economy.

Anyone needing support collateral or information to add to their own messages worldwide can contact UFI for more data, particularly on the industry’s contribution to GDP and jobs.

Look out also for the UFI Connects session, 19 May at 9:00 NY / 14:00 UK / 21:00 HK, entitled ‘Exploring Creativity in time for Global Exhibitions Day’.

Mary Larkin, UFI President said, “In the spirit of creating an opportunity out of a crisis, I challenge all of us to promote our industry at every opportunity and to ensure that everyone knows the role we play in an economic recovery. The first opportunity to do that is on 3 June – Global Exhibitions Day!”

Get involved and share and engage with #GED2020 on social media. You can also share photos of you and your colleagues with the GED logo and also stories from your exhibition.

Or why not create your own “Coices of the exhibition industry” card and share your thoughts on the future of the industry, maybe via a video – an opportunity to share some scenes from our working lives in events.
