Global Exhibitions Day (GED) is held annually on the first Wednesday of June. It is open to everyone interested in increasing the visibility of the exhibitions industry regionally and on a global scale.
Mark your calendars for the next Global Exhibitions Day on Wednesday 5 June 2024!
In 2023, GED took place on June the 7th with the overall theme “We run the meeting places and marketplaces for everyone”.
2023 Key Campaign Pillars:
- 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.
