Record turnout at 10th UFI Open Seminar in Asia

News this week: This year UFI (The Global association of the Exhibition Industry) celebrates the 10th edition of its Open Seminar in Asia and the exhibition industry turned out in full force to mark the occasion. More than 300 delegates from 21 countries and territories gathered in Hong Kong for Asia’s most important event serving exhibition industry professionals.

This year, the seminar returned to Hong Kong which also hosted the inaugural edition in 2006. The seminar was co-hosted by both the Hong Kong Exhibition & Convention Industry Association (HKECIA) and Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and it was held at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

Paul Woodward, UFI’s Managing Director, stated, “It is gratifying to see so many senior exhibition industry representatives from across Asia supporting UFI’s most important event in the region. The scale of this week’s seminar in Hong Kong is a testament to the strength of the industry in Asia. Approximately one third of UFI’s global membership is now located in this region, with more than 220 members across 15 Asian markets. UFI looks forward to building on this track record of growth and success in the decade ahead.”
