UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, has made a call for entries for two of its awards; the UFI Digital Innovation Award and the UFI Sustainable Development Award. Both awards are open to all companies from the exhibition industry (organisers, venues, service providers, associations), whether they are UFI members or not. Collaborative entries, involving groups of organisations, including some from outside the exhibition industry are welcome and encouraged. UFI Awards entries will gain global recognition from the industry, share best-practice, and present their winning formula at the annual UFI Global Congress which will help attracting new customers. The deadline for entries is 16 March 2021. To find out more about these and UFI’s other awards, visit: www.ufi.org/awards
