UFI prepares to welcome the exhibition industry to its 90th Global Congress


UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry announced today that it has finalised work on the programme for the upcoming UFI Global Congress this 1-4 November.

The largest annual gathering of global exhibition industry professionals is being hosted by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and will take place at the Aria Resort & Casino. More than 50 speakers from within and outside the exhibitions and events industry will address the hundreds of participants from more than 50 countries around the world as UFI’s largest annual event returns to North America for the first time since 1972, when it was held in Toronto, Canada.

The opening session at this year’s Congress will depart from the common keynote approach, and instead allow participants to experience the uniqueness of face-to-face interaction with a twist – establishing the Congress theme "Go Beyond!" while paying homage to the identity of Vegas as the event’s destination.

Dan Ram to be the MC at the Congress
Having moderated UFI events in Europe already to raving reviews, Dan Ram will join UFI in Vegas as master of ceremonies. Almost as international as UFI, Dan’s passion is to inspire people with his motto 'Start Now Start Simple' in building a future we all want to live in. DanRam has hosted the world’s biggest tech conferences, and had the honour of welcoming many distinguished guests to his stage. He has a knack for keeping audiences engaged and will ensure that every moment is memorable at the Congress.

Across both Congress days, the main stage sessions will tackle the most important strategic issues the global exhibition industry is facing – from changing customer expectations to evolving business models, and from talent acquisition and retention to sustainability, (de)globalization, and regulations.

US Focus Session to dive deeper into issues
On Friday, dedicated parallel “Spotlight Sessions” will delve deeper into industry specific topics, offering operational best practices from around the world, as well as insights into industry advocacy. The afternoon will see special programming exploring the US exhibitions market and drive opportunities both for global companies to take their business to the US and for US-based companies to go abroad with their products and services.
