René Kamm, CEO of the MCH Group, will be the Chairman for the Summit. Work on the programme is already underway to deliver an attractive mix of sessions and networking opportunities.

“We are thrilled that we can answer the call from the international community to provide an inspiring and relaxing location again for the 2018 Summit, and also to move the Summit back to its original date in January. And we could wish for no better Chairman for the summit than René Kamm, CEO of MCH Group, home of some of the world’s most prestigious B2B show brands”, says Kai Hattendorf, UFI’s Managing Director.

The Global CEO Summit is an invitation only event for CEOs and C-level executives from international exhibition organisers and venue operators. The number of participants is capped to allow for an intimate atmosphere. The programme provides a mix of panels, interactive sessions, and a broad scope of networking opportunities.
