Exhibition Industry Celebrates GED 2022


Global Exhibitions Day 2022 takes place today, 1 June and recognises the important role that trade exhibitions play in driving economies throughout the world. Exhibitions have traditionally played a role in bolstering and growing economic sectors, and this year is no exception!

The 2022 GED campaign focuses on the irreplaceable value of physical exhibitions and face-to-face business events in creating platforms for economic growth and recovery, as well as being the perfect occasion to network and meet new people.

This 1 June, GED sends the message that everyone in the exhibitions industry – from individuals and professionals to businesses and associations – is working to empower people and businesses, creating opportunities for millions around the world to each make a difference and to make their voices heard.

The GED 2022 campaign, which has already engaged audiences in more than 60 countries/regions, is supported by major players in the exhibition industry.

In her address to the global exhibitions industry for Global Exhibitions Day, Monica Lee-Müller, UFI President, says: “Our industry’s resilience to adversities is amazing. I must thank and acknowledge the foresight of our colleagues who initiated Global Exhibitions Day, seven years ago. Every year, as we celebrate GED, we highlight the tangible impact of exhibitions on global economies, and the tangible value to unite people from all different countries and cultures around the world. This year’s GED, on 1st June, will be the perfect occasion to put the spotlight on us once again. Happy Global Exhibitions Day!”

All businesses and professionals in the sector are encouraged to join the GED celebrations on 1 June 2022 by highlighting the impact of exhibitions on local economies – both in building businesses and connecting people from around the world.
