Singapore to host international exhibition industry event




UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, recently announced the selection of Singapore to host the 77th UFI Congress, from 10-13 November, 2010.

This annual event will be held at Marina Bay Sands (MBS), and UFI is expecting members from more than 50 countries to attend.

The delegates will be made up of industry leaders and strategic thinkers from the global exhibition industry, who will gather to share their professional views on the course of the industry, exchange ideas and network through a series of activities planned for the three-day session.

A number of additional internal UFI meetings are also planned, including the Annual General Assembly, the UFI Board of Directors Meeting, UFI’s Regional Chapter Meetings and a gathering of the UFI Associations’ Committee,
which brings together national and international exhibition related associations.

“We are very proud and honoured to host the UFI Congress, one of the global industry’s most prestigious events,” said Edward Liu, president of SACEOS and chairman of the organising committee. “The UFI Congress presents a wonderful opportunity to expose the international delegates to the facilities in Singapore and the capabilities of the local exhibition industry players.

“Such an event will play its part in attracting more organisers to host events in Singapore. The timing is ideal, as we will get to showcase new developments, such as the Integrated Resorts, to this key international audience.”

Meanwhile, UFI managing director Vincent Gérard commented: “Hosting this important international congress in Singapore was an enthusiastic choice of our association. Singapore last hosted the UFI Congress in 1994. We are delighted to be able to return again to a location which is an outstanding representative of the MICE industry.”
