The UFI European Conference 2020 will be held in Gothenburg (Sweden) and hosted by the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. The conference will take place from Wednesday 13 May to Friday 15 May. Carin Kindbom, president and CEO of the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre, and UFI president Craig Newman, agreed on the collaboration.
As the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, UFI organises annual regional conferences in Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle east and Latin America, as well as the UFI Global Congress. The UFI European Conference takes place in May each year and brings together industry professionals from all over Europe and beyond.
It has recently been hosted in Birmingham (2019), Verona (2018), Cologne (2017) and Basel (2016), and is open to UFI members and non-members. Based on data from Explori, a global UFI research partner, participants regularly rate the conference as one of the very best opportunities for networking and best practice learning in the industry.
“Sweden occupies a central position in northern Europe and is the largest market in the Nordic region open to international trade. It hosts many international trade shows and events. The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre has been a UFI member since 1953 and is going to be a wonderful host for the occasion,” said UFI president Newman. “Our delegates can already look forward to a unique event, packed with networking, timely content, and some special Swedish experiences.”
Carin Kindbom, president and CEO of the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre commented: “We are delighted to welcome the UFI delegates to our venue, based in the city centre of Gothenburg. I am convinced the delegates will have memorable experiences, not only from an exciting agenda and excellent networking, but also from a beautiful, interesting and sustainable destination, located by the sea on Sweden’s west coast.”
