Global Exhibitions Day
Global Exhibition Day (GED) is held annually on the first Wednesday of June. This year it takes place on June the 7th, and is open to everyone interested in increasing the visibility of the Exhibition Industry regionally and on a global scale.
The overall theme for GED 2023 is “We run the meeting places and marketplaces for everyone”.
- We serve industries by facilitating contacts between exhibitors and visitors so they can showcase products and services, develop contacts and business, develop reputation and promotion. Industries need events for their development.
- Events also deliver strong economic and social benefits towards the territories where they are held, in terms of jobs and tax income.
- On the environmental side, exhibitions are a sustainable way of doing business: travelling to one place to meet several contacts not only saves time and money, it also reduces multiple travel.
While events needs to work on reducing their environmental footprint (cf. the Net Zero Carbon Events initiative) they also offer places to work on solutions to the climate crisis, and they can have meaningful collective impact, given their wide audience and reach.
