Approximately 220 delegates from more than 20 countries and regions attended the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference in Malaysia.
The annual event was held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) and hosted by the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB). It took place from 2-3 March and was followed by a post-conference city tour through the enchanting and historical city of Kuala Lumpur.
With many new opportunities and challenges facing the Apac region, exhibition industry leaders reunited to map out the years to come, four years after the event had last been held in Tokyo, Japan.
Malaysia’s minister of tourism, arts and culture (Motac), YB Dato Sri Tiong King Sing, opened the conference. He stated that UFI's presence in Malaysia held significant meaning to the overall tourism industry of the country. He noted that as international travel was returning, "Motac is proactively supporting business events activities that will attract high-yield delegates to Malaysia and also promote our country as an international business events destination. I am excited to welcome the delegates of UFI to experience our country and recognise the great work between MyCEB and UFI."
YBhg. Dato’ Sri Abdul Khani, CEO of MyCEB commented: “As an important driver of global economic growth, the business events industry is rising at a rapid pace again. We are fortunate to have won the confidence of UFI and this conference represents their trust in us to add value to UFI’s global following.”
Kai Hattendorf, UFI’s managing director/CEO, said: “Finally, we could re-united the exhibition industry community from the whole Asia-Pacific region again and face to face. The optimism and energy everyone felt during the two days of the conference show that our industry is not only recovering, but it will go beyond where we have been before the pandemic disruption.”

The Future of Exhibitions, Congresses and Events
In the event world, it’s simply part of life if things don’t work out as planned.
Networking typically happens at real, in-person events. But it’s also possible to do it online; it just works a little differently. There are various options available to organisers.
New products and a well-conceived stand design are not the only drivers for a successful presence. Many other factors are also important, but trade fair planners often lose sight of them.
Trade fairs and trade fair companies need to constantly further develop, become more agile and flexible and offer services all year round. New, digital offerings are very important here. With its TrustedTargeting technology, Messe München offers its customers access to leading business-to-business decision-makers on the Internet.
