Variety of knowledge transfer

Gwen Kaufmann, m+a - Tuesday, June 18, 2019    

In Europe, as well as producing Voices of the Exhibition Industry messages, IELA organised an Event Logistics Horizon Project, a campaign for active data collection, with a view to boosting industry statistics and knowledge. Zagreb Fair organised an international conference entitled "Exhibition Industry – Disruptor or Disruptee?" The goals of the event included revealing the impact of trade fairs on economies, exploiting the potential of the industry and sharing knowledge and insights. Another conference was organised by AEFI in Italy entitled "Cooperation and Sustainability: change drivers for Italian fairs." The event included a debate by the AEFI president and vice presidents on the themes of sector legislation, economic development and the promotion of Made in Italy. Last but not least, UFI published a new report on initiatives that support the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), sharing 20 best practice cases from around the world.
