EXHIBITIONS RECOVERY KEY
GLOBAL Exhibitions Day on 02 Jun this year will showcase the importance of exhibitions and business events to rebuilding economies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The annual world-wide campaign established by UFI, the Global Association for the Exhibition Industry, is supported by more than 40 partner associations and industry bodies, including the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA).
The EEAA will mark this year’s event by hosting a hybrid seminar featuring several highprofile speakers followed by networking drinks.
EEAA CEO Claudia Sagripanti said the business events sector contributed more than $35 billion to Australia’s GDP prior to the pandemic, running over 430,000 events each year and employing 229,000 people.
“The sector is a major contributor to Australia, both financially and for its ability to expand marketplaces by bringing buyers and sellers together and offering a platform for launching innovation and new product,” she said.
The ICC Sydney hybrid event will provide both local and international perspectives from speakers including ASM Global Chairman Harvey Lister, HSBC Chief Economist ANZ Paul Bloxham, Adelaide Convention Centre GM Simon Burgess, Exhibitions & Events Australia & NZ CEO Jane Ford, and ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy.
It will take place on Wed 02 Jun from 2.30pm AEST with tickets and registration available by CLICKING HERE.
