UFI Global Congress to focus on security and safety
True to it's theme on "Pressures & Profits", the programme for this year's UFI Global Congress is loaded with sessions focused on overcoming obstacles and adapting to change. The UFI Global Congress, titled "Raising the Odds - Pressures and Profits in the Exhibition Industry", will take place from 1-4 November 2017 in Johannesburg.
The sessions will feature a number of respected, experienced and knowledgeable industry professionals sharing case studies of successes and failures, unpacking research results and discussing the latest trends within the exhibition industry. On Thursday 2 November, the afternoon programme offers participants the opportunity to attend one of three parallel sessions respectively in two separate time slots. These Special Interest Group (SIG) discussions allow participants to select a topic that is of most interest to them, where the dialogues will be specific to the particular focus area.
The Large Venue SIG is one of these special sessions. Moderated by the current UFI President and Member of the Managing Board, Deutsche Messe AG Hannover, Dr. Andreas Gruchow, this group will focus on event security and safety in turbulent times.
