How the future of our industry looks will be a key focus of the upcoming UFI MEA Conference, which brings together leading players from the Middle East and Africa region and beyond, to network, exchange ideas and forge new partnerships.
According to the conference organizers, “It’s clear that 2021 will be a pivotal year for the global exhibition industry. As we battle to overcome the pandemic that’s brought normal business to a halt, travel and meeting restrictions are impacting our face-to-face business, while online fatigue is hitting digital events and platforms. We know our industry will recover thanks to a combination of on-site physical meetings and online digital tools, but “how” we do this will be the question going forward.”
Led by Naji El Haddad (pictured left), UFI regional director MEA, the event will be an opportunity for the business events community to gain insight into topics of strategic interest, such as economics, technology, hybrid events, skills and more.
As one of the first in-person events to return, it’s a chance to personally connect with event professionals from both the private and public sectors, from the Middle East and Africa region and beyond. The conference would like to thank their sponsors:
