UFI Events




The 82nd UFI Congress was held
in Milano (Italy)
4-7 November 2015

Access to Speakers' presentations
For UFI Members only




The UFI Annual Congress is the largest UFI event and is strictly restricted to UFI members only, and the members of the national association (also a UFI member) where the Congress is being held. It is an ideal opportunity for members to exchange ideas and opinions on different business practices, and a great chance to get to know one another better, and catch up! The UFI Congress also provides great learning opportunities, with numerous meetings including: 

  • Meetings of the UFI Decision-Making Bodies : General Assembly (Ordinary and, if needed, Extraordinary), Board of Directors and Executive Committee;
  • Meetings of the UFI Regional Chapters;
  • Meetings of the Associations Committee gathering all the national and international exhibition industry association members of UFI;
  • Meetings of some UFI Working Committees: Marketing, ICT, Operations & Services, Education, Sustainable Development;
  • Meetings of the UFI group member CEOs called "Global Group CEO Think-Tank;
  • High-level presentations on topics of strategic interest on the current trends and issues facing the exhibition industry.
