UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, kicked off its record-breaking 83rd UFI Global Congress in Shanghai by extending their Diamond Sponsor agreement with global events supplier GES for three years through 2019.
GES’ ongoing support of the Diamond Sponsor programme has enabled UFI to develop new research programmes and activities, while continuing to improve and professionalise its events and services. GES has enjoyed promotion across all UFI’s events, while positioning itself as a thought-leader in the event technology and exhibitor services space.
Kai Hattendorf, Managing Director of UFI, commented: “GES has been a wonderful partner for our association, and we are delighted to continue this agreement through 2019. GES’ ongoing commitment to UFI demonstrates their wider commitment to our industry, and alongside our members we are very grateful for its support. GES was key partner in helping us successfully implement a new part of the Global Congress this year - the Xchange platform. They were the first company we turned to when we needed help with this project and once again, delivered."
Jason Popp, Executive Vice President of International, for GES, commented, “GES has been an active member of UFI since 2010 and a Diamond sponsor since 2013. We are proud to support many UFI members with their projects globally, whether it is show design and production, exhibitor support, data and registration services or technical production services. We are also proud to partner with many of the great venues who are also UFI members so continuing our active involvement as a Diamond Member through 2019 is a natural next step.”
