UFI Asia-Pacific Conference & Digital Innovation Forum 2020 cancelled


29 June 2020: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and the travel restrictions that remain in place in most Asian countries, UFI has cancelled the 2020 UFI Asia-Pacific Conference and the Digital Innovation Forum which was originally scheduled to be held in Macau in March 2020 and was subsequently rescheduled in late August 2020.

“As the host of the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference 2020, the Macau Fair & Trade Association is saddened by this cancellation, but we understand and support UFI’s decision given the current pandemic. At MFTA, health and safety are our priority in order to ensure the recovery of the exhibition industry! Hence, we will look forward to welcoming the exhibition industry back to Macau when the time is right. Until then, stay healthy and happy!” remarks Council Chairperson, Synthia Chan.

The UFI team is looking to the future with optimism and will return to Macau in 2022 to organize another successful edition of the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference. And before that in 2021, the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference will go to Melbourne, the first time that an UFI event will take place in Australia.

UFI will work to facilitate meetings between members during the 2020 UFI Global Congress in a revised format. Open to more than 50,000 industry professionals globally who work for UFI member companies, UFI’s Global Congress is known as the exhibition industry’s largest global meeting of the year, combining international networking with unique content.
