As the exhibition industry is in a state of change, the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference will be discussing ways to face the future. The event scheduled to take place from March 14 to 15, 2019 at Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo, Japan, is set to provide a wealth of knowledge transfer with Tad Ishizumi, chairman of JEXA, president of Reed Exhibitions Japan (Japan), George Tanasijevich, president & CEO, Marina Bay Sands and managing director for global development, Las Vegas Sands Corp. (Singapore), and Josephine Lee, COO, Reed Exhibitions Greater China (China) sharing their success stories and outlook. Additionally, the members of the UFI Digital Innovation Working Group will take a look at several aspects of the digital revolution, including artificial intelligence, privacy laws and big data and how they impact different aspects of our business such as attendee experience, registration or performance measurement.
