Only 18 Days to Global Exhibitions Day on June 7th!

submitted by IFES

The eighth annual Global Exhibitions Day takes place on 7 June in 2023.
GED is inviting YOU to join in the celebrations and reinforce the value of the Exhibitions Industry worldwide.

Themed “We run the meeting places and marketplaces for everyone” the 2023 Global exhibition Day aims to highlight the exhibitions industry’s ability to:

  • Serve industries by facilitating contacts between exhibitors and visitors so they can showcase products and services, develop contacts and business, develop reputation and promotion. Industries need events for their development.
  • To deliver strong economic and social benefits towards the territories where they are held, in terms of jobs and tax income.
  • Provide a sustainable way of doing business: travelling to one place to meet several contacts not only saves time and money, it also reduces multiple travel.

In support of GED 2023, IFES members are invited from around the world, to provide images of themselves and their company logos to demonstrate how the power of our collective support extends right across the global.

Send a head and shoulders pic with your company logo in the background to (robyn@ifesnet.org) before the end of May to be part of our IFES global map.

What is GED

Global Exhibitions Day (GED) is held annually on the first Wednesday of June. This year it takes place on June the 7th, and is open to everyone interested in increasing the visibility of the Exhibition Industry regionally and on a global scale.
The overall theme for GED 2023 is “We run the meeting places and marketplaces for everyone”.

Key Campaign Pillars:

  • We serve industries by facilitating contacts between exhibitors and visitors so they can showcase products and services, develop contacts and business, develop reputation and promotion. Industries need events for their development.
  • Events also deliver strong economic and social benefits towards the territories where they are held, in terms of jobs and tax income.
  • On the environmental side, exhibitions are a sustainable way of doing business: travelling to one place to meet several contacts not only saves time and money, it also reduces multiple travel.
  • While events needs to work on reducing their environmental footprint (cf. the Net Zero Carbon Events initiative) they also offer places to work on solutions to the climate crisis, and they can have meaningful collective impact, given their wide audience and reach.
