The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI) elected the CEO of Exhibition Place in Canada to its board of directors.
Dianne Young’s term will commence immediately after the UFI General Assembly in Bogota, Colombia, on Oct. 30 and run for a three-year mandate.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the board of directors for their support in my appointment. As the first Canadian representative, I look forward to working with the new board and supporting UFI’s goal to represent, promote and support its members and the exhibition industry worldwide,” stated Young.
Young has been an active member of UFI, previously sat on the UFI Social Corporate Responsibilities Committee and as of Oct. 30 took up the position of chair of the Sustainable Development Committee.
”UFI has taken the lead in establishing an international program to promote sustainability, and the Sustainability Development Committee have ambitious goals to further develop its program in the next few years,” she added.
As a regular guest speaker, Young demonstrates her dedication to environmental responsibility — both personally and in her position of CEO of Exhibition Place.
Young joined Exhibition Place, a local board of the City of Toronto, in 1999 and held progressive positions as general manager and CEO.
