To promote the industry, the Global Exhibitions Day will be held on 5 June 2019.
Four main advocacy messages and related material are proposed to all for GED19: Exhibitions are a large global industry; Exhibitions are an effective and sustainable way of doing business; Exhibitions can contribute to a sustainable world; The exhibition industry offers a variety of job opportunities. UFI will provide global and regional data related to the economic impact of exhibitions, highlighting the important contribution of exhibitions in terms of total output, contribution to GDP and jobs. Furthermore, UFI is pushing the “talent” element and encouraging people to come up with initiatives such as “Follow-me” videos, and “Voices of the Exhibition Industry” messages.

UFI is also asking best practices to report on their contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). UFI President Craig Newman says: “This is the 4th Global Exhibitions Day campaign, and it is our industry’s BIG day! Let us build on the success of the past three editions. I am sure that GED19 will send a strong signal to all policymakers and stakeholders of our industry on the power of exhibitions – for business as well as for people. And let’s not forget to also celebrate our wonderfully fascinating, great, diverse global industry.”
