88th UFI Global Congress

3-6 November 2021

Rotterdam Ahoy, the Netherlands

88th UFI Global Congress

The UFI Global Congress is the “must attend” annual event for the exhibition industry

– the largest global meeting of the year which gathers industry leaders from around the world to network and to learn.

We have been unable to meet as a community since Bangkok in 2019, so this years’ Congress in Rotterdam is the first opportunity to bring our global community face-to-face once again.

Join us in the Netherlands, where our hosts Rotterdam Ahoy and Rotterdam Partners have been working with the UFI team to ensure you have a safe and unforgettable experience.
Together we will celebrate the recovery of our sector, exchange lessons learned, and look at how we can shape our industry to adapt and grow in the new post-COVID world.

As usual the Congress will offer informal networking and social occasions – there will be plenty of time to catch up! We will also provide keynote speakers from inside and outside our industry, and a variety of formats and break-out sessions to make sure you stay up to date, gather information and ideas to help you speed up the recovery in your business.

Let’s get back together again!
