June 7 is Global Exhibitions Day

ged17

The Global Exhibitions Day (#GED17) this year is on June 7. Now in its second year, GED17 puts a focus on the people and jobs in the exhibition industry, under the title “Think Global – Act Local”. Under the co-ordination of UFI, The Global Association for the Exhibition Industry, activities have been scheduled in 45 countries and regions around the world. 40 Global Exhibitions Day partner associations are united behind this joint awareness-raising campaign. UFI managing director and CEO, Kai Hattendorf said: “GED is a truly global celebration of the exhibition industry, and all its highly-valued people.” With 260 million visitors and 4.4 million exhibitors generating EUR 98bn revenues every year, GED highlights the positive impact of exhibitions on jobs, business, innovation and local investment. UFI estimates that half of exhibition spending benefits host territories directly, and the other half benefits the exhibitions industry, creating or maintaining hundreds of thousands of jobs. Support for GED has grown since its launch last year, with a wave of new events ranging from national-level lobbying to local community actions. Countries showing support for the first time this year include Bahrain, Ethiopia, Finland, Honduras, Japan, Serbia and Sweden.
