Global Exhibitions Day 2023

UFI are celebrating the 8th annual Global Exhibitions Day. This year the theme is “We run the meeting places and marketplaces for everyone”. 

Global Exhibitions Day (GED) was created by UFI, The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry. It is held annually on the first Wednesday of June. GED was created to boost visibility of the Exhibition Industry regionally and globally.

The Tag Digital team are excited to celebrate #GED2023 to promote the importance of the events industry for opportunity, innovation and connection.

“As marketing partners of UFI, our next event is the UFI European Conference 2023 in Maastricht, the Tag Digital team will be there 14-16 June. We will be exhibiting at booth #11, so come along to meet the team and learn more about what we do at Tag Digital to support event professionals to reach their goals”.

– Nicola Shaw, Head of Growth, Tag Digital

We are proud marketing partners of UFI for 2023, and we are looking forward to continuing to strengthen our partnership and support the UFI team to deliver successful events. Attending the UFI European Conference 2023 is the perfect opportunity to finally meet the team in person and network with other industry professionals.

The Tag Digital team is celebrating by taking the opportunity to shout out event professionals we are glad to have met in the last year! Join us on LinkedIn and tag who you are happy to have met at an event!

We have also asked our team and clients to share one word they would use to describe the event industry. Take a look at what they said…

To celebrate #GED2023, we released a special episode of the Tag Digital Podcast with Nicola, Head of Growth and Kirsty, Growth Manager. Listen now on Spotify.

We wanted to know what Nicola and Kirsty’s understanding of the theme for #GED2023 was…

Nicola, Head of Growth, “The events industry are the people that bring together businesses and people from all over the world. It is probably one of the only industries that does that from such diverse groups of people and industries, so I think this is what UFI are focusing on with the theme of #GED2023”.

Kirsty, Growth Manager, “I’d agree with Nicola, it also emphasises the inclusivity of bringing everyone together in the one space and going with the growth element of being the main facilitator for building connections in the industry”.

To hear more from Nicola and Kirsty on what they think makes a successful event, discussing the return of events in the last few years and exciting news on what events you can meet the Tag Digital team at this year!

Listen to the full episode on Spotify or search ‘The Tag Digital Squadcast’ on all streaming platforms.

UFI shares, “Meeting in person is the single biggest driver of the UFI community. The conference is an important annual get-together of our nearly 300 member companies in Europe and other colleagues from around the world. It is an opportunity for the entire industry, UFI member or not, to meet face to face”.

We are looking forward to exhibiting at the UFI European Conference, and we can’t wait to see you there. Find us at Booth #11, 14-16th June 2023.

See you soon Maastricht!
