Paris & Singapore, 26th July: Last week, UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, and the Singapore Association of Convention & Exhibition Organisers & Suppliers (SACEOS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at the Singapore MICE Forum 2018.
The two associations will collaborate to develop a joint “Asia Pacific Executive Development Programme” for exhibition industry professionals in the region. Both associations aim to launch the programme at the upcoming UFI Asia Pacific Congress 2019 in Japan. The initiative will eventually aim to include recognised certification for the programme.
Kai Hattendorf, UFI’s CEO, remarked, “It is UFI’s mission to connect and serve the exhibition industry globally. Our collaboration with SACEOS will allow both our associations to do this more efficiently, tapping on research, and nurturing more industry professionals in Asia and globally.”
