UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry, has revealed the five winners of its 2017 UFI Next Generation Leadership Grant, chosen by an international judging panel.

The judges, led by UFI president Dr. Andreas Gruchow selected the winners for their exceptional initiative in driving change and innovation in their area of the exhibition industry.

 

The winners of the 2017 UFI Next Generation Leadership grant are:
• Selin Cakici, vice-chair of the board – HKF TRADE FAIRS (Turkey)
• Katharina Keupp, project consultant – Messe Munich (Germany)
• Neo Mohlatlole, business development director – Seven Colours Communications (South Africa)
• Thomas Revell, sustainability manager – GES (UK)
• Diana Salman, HR strategic change manager – IFP Expo (Lebanon)

 

“We’re strongly committed to giving next generation leaders a voice and a global platform to further thrive,” commented UFI managing director Kai Hattendorf. “At UFI we meet a lot of dedicated young people worldwide who are putting their energy, ideas, initiative, into the exhibition industry: the NGL grant recognises, and celebrates the best of these talents.”

 

This year’s UFI Next Generation Leaders will now embark on an investigation into the future of exhibitions, working closely with the team at UFI headquarters in Paris. They will present their findings in a special session at the 84th UFI Global Congress in Johannesburg, South Africa on 1-4 November 2017.
