UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, serves more than 50,000 employees of exhibition organizers, venues, service providers, and industry associations in close to 90 countries around the world. To foster and manage the dialogue with this global membership, the exhibition industry as a whole, and industry stakeholder groups, UFI has recently welcomed Monika Fourneaux-Ceskova as the new marketing and communications manager to the UFI team in Paris. Fourneaux-Ceskova takes over the role from Angela Herberholz who has managed UFI’s marketing and communications activities for the past three years, and who is taking on a new position within UFI as programme manager.
Fourneaux-Ceskova brings extensive experience in marketing and communications. For the past eight years, she has been responsible for the exhibition and marketing activities for Ateme, an international broadcast technology solutions provider. She is familiar with trade shows held in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Rai Amsterdam, Dubai World Trade Center, KoelnMesse, London Olympia, and many more. She has also worked for the Czech Embassy in Paris to provide and deliver national pavilions at trade shows, and as part of the support team at the World Economic Forum Annual Meetings in Davos.
Herberholz will continue her journey with UFI as programme manager. In her new role, Herberholz will focus mainly on coordinating and supporting the work of the various working committees to aid them in their global development, while also leading and driving projects in UFI’s education programs.
Sonia Thomas, UFI director of operations/COO, comments: “I am very pleased to welcome Monika as our new team member. Coming from a different business area yet still very much connected to the exhibition market, she will contribute to our mission to serve our members and the industry. Angela will take on her new role now too, where she will continue to build on and develop her previous experience.”
