UFI has announced the launch of the 2020 Next Generation Leadership (NGL) Grant, which recognises and supports the best talent in the exhibition industry. With the NGL Grant, UFI is committed to empowering talented exhibition professionals by providing them with a platform to express their views on the future of our industry. Applications are now open for the fifth edition of the programme. Up to five industry professionals who demonstrate clear initiatives for driving change and innovation within their areas of activity will receive grants.
UFI President Mary Larkin says: “The UFI Next Generation Leadership Grant is all about promoting the diverse talent we have in the exhibition industry all around the world, and giving our rising professionals the international recognition and opportunities they deserve.” An international jury, led by UFI President Mary Larkin will select the future leaders based on their exceptional initiative in driving change and innovation in their sector of the exhibition industry. The chosen grantees will have the opportunity to present to high-level industry professionals at the UFI Global Congress 2020 in Muscat (Oman). Furthermore, they will benefit from 12 months of mentorship from an executive-level industry representative. Grantees will also gain exposure for their companies through UFI’s global communications.
