UFI opens Oman Global Congress 2022 registration

Global association of the exhibition industry UFI, fresh from its European Conference in Poznan, 4-6 May, and moving into its Latam Conference in Argentina, 11-12 May, is also now looking forward to its 89th UFI Global Congress, for which registration is now open. The Global Congress will take place in person, on 14-17 November 2022, in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, and represents the first time the event will have been held in the Middle East for 10 years.

Hundreds of industry leaders from around the world are expected to attend the event that will be hosted by Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) in Muscat.

“We are excited to welcome the Congress’ delegates from around the world and look forward to providing them with an unforgettable experience. Team Oman will ensure that each guest will receive a very special welcome in this destination renowned for traditional Omani hospitality,” said Eng. Said Al Shanfari, CEO of the OCEC.

As the sector continues its speedy recovery from the impact of the global pandemic, leaders from the regional and international exhibition sector will gather in Muscat.

Offering unique content and keynote speakers from inside and outside the sector, the Congress will look at the future of the industry. Alongside networking opportunities, attendees will have the chance to exchange lessons learned, and gain new insights and ideas. “This year, more than ever, the UFI Global Congress will offer a safe and memorable experience. UFI’s 89th Global Congress in Muscat is the opportunity to reconnect with exhibition industry peers and shape the future of our industry. We’re looking forward to welcoming industry professionals from all over the world, in person,” said Monica Lee-Müller, UFI president.

Participants from UFI member companies can now secure their place at: www.uficongress.org and, thanks to the collaboration between their respective associations, members of ICCA, AIPC, and SISO are also eligible to attend.

In 2020, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Congress went digital, with programming from Hong Kong, Dubai, London, and Bogota.

In 2021, it was hosted in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and, in 2023, the event will be hosted in Las Vegas, USA.
