Paris, 6th June: The fourth edition of Global Exhibition Day (GED) was held on 5th June 2019. GED aims to highlight the exhibition industry’s value and role as a driver of economic growth.

GED 2019 promoted four core advocacy messages, including UFI’s recently released global and regional data related to the economic impact of exhibitions, which underscores how important exhibitions are in contributing to total economic output, job creation and GDP growth. GED activities were held in some 90 countries and regions on 5th June. A total of 41 GED partner associations supported and joined the celebrations.
