UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry, announced this week that the 2012 UFI Congress will be held in Abu Dhabi. The 2012 Congress will be UFI's 79th annual global meeting and the first to be held in the Arabian Gulf.
UFI Managing Director commented, "We have been hoping for a long time to be able to bring the UFI Congress to Abu Dhabi and are really delighted that our 2012 event will be hosted by ADNEC. Abu Dhabi generously hosted UFI’s Middle East/Africa office for the past five years. So, we are really excited to be able to share with our 550 members in 84 countries the magnificent facilities and exciting developments there which we know very well. This will, we’re certain, be a really memorable UFI Congress, all the more special for being the first one we’ve held in the Arabian Gulf region."
The 2010 UFI Congress was held in Singapore last November and it attracted 475 delegates from more than 50 countries. The 2011 UFI Congress will be held in Valencia.
