Global Exhibitions Day 2019

For the fourth time, the international exhibition industry is celebrating Global Exhibitions Day. The initiator of the Global Exhibitions Day on 5 June 2019 is UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry. This year's focus is on the global economic impact of trade fairs and their contribution to the protection of resources. 

Exhibitions - a global industry

Trade fairs take place in almost every country in the world. From Chile to China, from Finland to Australia. But also many individual fairs have global significance, thanks to high internationality on the exhibitor and visitor side. Almost two-thirds of the global leading trade fairs of the various industries take place in Germany. This makes the exhibition venue Germany the world's No. 1 in international events.

Exhibitions - committed to sustainability

Even if exhibitions take place under time pressure - sustainable action is not neglected. Many exhibition organizers have committed themselves to observing environmental protection at fairs. These included waste prevention, recycling and landfilling. In addition, many companies on the exhibitors' side commit themselves to sustainability regardless of their trade fair participation. But, after all, exhibitions have a good eco-balance because they help avoid millions of travel-related individual appointments.
