“This year’s theme of ‘Go beyond!’ is really well timed.

Dedicated matchmaking to drive connections
In addition to world class content sessions, the UFI Global Congress
serves as the global meeting of the industry’s leaders. “At every Congress,
we connect leaders across geographies to create business opportunities for
them. A focal point is always to give opportunities for the industry in the
respective congress host country to take advantage of the global industry
leadership coming to them”, says Kai Hattendorf, UFI CEO.
To help drive these connections, UFI will run dedicated matchmaking sessions before the start of the main Congress programme as icebreaker sessions. These will especially focus on participants from North America, First Time Attendees, and other special groups.
No UFI Congress is complete without the legendary evening events and other social activities. These include the Welcome Reception on Wednesday, the Big Night Out on Thursday, and the Post Congress Excursions on Saturday. Add to that UFI Sports activities in the mornings, and several additional options to gather and explore, and participants will have a full range of possibilities to take in what Vegas has to offer together with their peers.
The UFI Global Congress will be held at the ARIA Resort & Casino, located on the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.
“We are honoured Las Vegas will serve as the inaugural U.S. host city to
welcome the world’s premier trade show organizers for the UFI Global
Congress. We look forward to celebrating UFI’s 90th anniversary event in
Only Vegas style,” said Steve Hill, CEO/president of the Las Vegas
Convention and Visitors Authority.

The Future of Exhibitions, Congresses and Events
