Global Exhibition Day 2021

Global Exhibition Day is when we proudly celebrate the contribution made to the success of brands across the world by our industry.

We acknowledge the traumatic challenges experienced by so many clients and colleagues while looking forward with huge enthusiasm to a future that already promises to be brighter, stronger, and more innovative than ever.

Global Exhibitions Day (GED) recognizes the important role that trade exhibitions play in driving economies throughout the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has had significantly detrimental, and potentially lasting, effects on the global economy, across nearly all business sectors and regions.

Exhibitions have traditionally played a role in bolstering and growing economic sectors, but this year they will play a new role – rebuilding and recovering communities.

The message for GED2021

The 2021 Global Exhibition Day campaign will focus on just how instrumental exhibitions are in creating platforms for growth and recovery, while also instilling confidence in others to participate in organized events that prioritize safety and success in equal measure.

While the event is hosted by the global association of the exhibition industry, UFI, all members of the sector are encouraged to join the Global Exhibition Day celebrations on 2 June by recognizing the impact of exhibitions on local economies – both in building businesses and connecting people all around the world.

Global Exhibition Day 2021 is a unification of the industry, an occasion to share hope and optimism, and a focus on the important role of exhibitions in reconnecting and rebuilding communities and economies.
