IELA sets the table for discussion on Security and Safety in the Exhibition Industry in Marrakech
IELA, the International Exhibition Logistics Association, will gather local stakeholders of the exhibition and event industry from the MENA and Western Africa region to discuss, from the inside, about what is needed to be done in Security and Safety in the region in order to protect our people and set standards.
IELA CONNECT will be IELA’s first event in the MENA + Western Africa Region, welcoming all major professionals in the exhibition industry on a defined local scale with one major goal: to reinforce relationships for a Safer, more Secure and Sustainable Industry, globally serving the Exhibition Community.
The role of local actors is fundamental. They know their market and environment and have a comprehensive understanding of the benefits of security standards. Following the presentation of the IELA Security Guidelines, the IELA Operational Health & Safety Guidelines and the IELA Sustainability Guidelines, the association stages a forum on-site for local actors in the industry to discuss best practices in Morocco. The subject for exchange and debate will be how the whole industry can implement higher standards of security to protect all staff involved in exhibitions at all stages of a project.
In its efforts to make a difference, IELA is committed to not only enforcing best practices in Exhibition Logistics and supporting the community of IELA members, but also to inspiring and maximizing mutual actions in the exhibition and event industry.
