IELA, the International Exhibition Logistics Association, will gather local exhibition stakeholders from the MENA and Western Africa region, 14 October, to discuss how to move towards a safer, more secure and sustainable industry.
Following the presentation of the IELA Security Guidelines, the IELA Operational Health & Safety Guidelines and the IELA Sustainability Guidelines, the association will stage a forum on-site in Marrakech for local actors in the industry to discuss best practices in Morocco.
Local associations represented at the event include AMDL (the Moroccan Agency for Logistics Development) and IAEE MENA Chapter (the International Association of Exhibitions and Events).
The aim of discussions will be to work out how the broader industry in the region can implement higher standards of security to protect all staff involved in exhibitions at all stages of a project.
Host venue for the event is Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi, Marrakech.
The agenda will include a welcome by IELA Chairman Vicki Bedi and presentations from local IELA member Timar’s Nicolas Rougerie and Rachid Bensaber from ESI Group.
IELA CONNECT is designed to build a bridge between IELA members, organisers, venues, associations and the media.
