UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, has appointed Justine Evans to the role of Marketing and Communications Manager.
Justine takes over the role from Monika Fourneaux-Ceskova who managed UFI’s marketing and communications activities for the past year and a half, and who has relocated to Dubai.
UFI serves over 50,000 employees of exhibition organisers, venues, service providers, and industry associations in close to 90 countries around the world. To foster and manage the dialogue with this global membership, the exhibition industry as a whole, and industry stakeholder groups, UFI has recently welcomed Justine Evans to the team.
She brings with her a solid background in the non-profit sector, having worked in areas related to health, refrigeration and standardisation. Throughout her career, Justine has always had ties to the exhibition industry, and appreciates the value of face-to-face events.
Initially working in digital communications, she has grown in her role to pilot multi-channel communication projects and to support the organisation and marketing of forums, conferences and congresses.
Sonia Thomas, UFI Director of Operations/COO, comments: “I am very pleased to welcome Justine as our new team member. Coming from a different business sector yet still very much connected to the exhibition market, I am confident that Justine, with her very solid marketing and communications experience, will contribute to our mission to serve both our members and the industry.”
