Thinking ahead….to the Global CEO Summit from 8 – 10 February 2017 in Barcelona

As most Europeans conclude their summer vacation, here’s an idea to boost the morale: mark your diary to attend the Global CEO Summit that will take place from 8 – 10 February at the sumptuous W Hotel Barcelona. The teams at UFI and tfconnect (who are joint partners on this event) are working hard to put together a fantastic programme that will be chaired by Simon Foster, Chief Executive Officer, UBM EMEA, and which will be available online shortly. Registration too will be opening soon, so watch this space….

While the theme for the 2017 GCS is still under wraps, here’s a sneak peak on the topics that will be covered, all centered around current questions discussed in our industry’s boardrooms:

  • How to use diversity to the industry’s advantage
  • How to deal with the growing theme of Health & Safety & Security
  • And how to benefit from sustainability from corporate standards to systemic metrics for business and administration.

The GCS is an ideal opportunity to get up to speed on what is happening within the exhibition industry, and a chance to catch up with fellow CEOs.

Only CEOs or equivalent from exhibition organizing companies or venues are permitted to attend. Other companies (CEOs) may attend as sponsors. Attendance however is purposely restricted to ensure a unique, intimate atmosphere.
