UFI membership hits 500 milestone

The global association for the exhibition industry, UFI, has recently sanctioned the addition of four new members, taking its membership above 500.

The new members include two exhibition venues (Zhengzhou International Convention and Exhibition Centre in China and Dnepropetrovvsk in the Ukraine), one organiser (John Kotsis & Co of Greece) and one service provider (Agility Fairs & Events Logistics of Singapore).

“The admission of these exhibition organisations reflects UFI’s commitment to the development of strong international standards throughout the trade fair industry,” said UFI President Cliff Wallace.

In addition, Messe München has moved into the UFI Group member category with its nine international subsidiaries.

UFI’s global membership now includes more than 500 exhibition organisers, owners and managers of exhibition centres, national and international associations and partners of the industry. UFI members organise more than 4,500 exhibitions around the world and operate 162 exhibition centres in 84 countries. What’s more, 37 national and international exhibition-related associations also belong to UFI.

At the same time, the UFI Board of Directors has announced that six additional international exhibitions have met the quality requirements for UFI Approved status. The UFI label ensures that “exhibitors and visitors alike will profit from the opportunities provided by trade fairs and exhibitions to demonstrate products and services and to build solid marketing relationships in a sound professional environment”, according to the association. UFI-approved events must provide audited statistics on a regular basis.
