ITE sponsors UFI seminar

UFI, the global association for the exhibition industry, held its European Open Seminar in early July, and ITE sponsored the evening reception at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.

Over 200 exhibition industry companies from 30 countries took part in the seminar, with ITE represented by senior managers from Moscow, St. Petersburg and Krasnodar. Speakers included international event organisers, venue owners, operators and builders, and suppliers of equipment and services.

Speaking at the reception, Primexpo’s General Director Irina Liubina stressed that ITE sees a role for itself in developing the exhibition industry in the form of bringing in innovative technology.

Over three days, the participants discussed current issues and projects in the industry. St. Petersburg was an appropriate choice of venue – its potential as an event centre has grown in recent years, and the seminar allowed leading companies to assess the opportunities and cooperation possibilities offered by the city. An event of this level being held in St. Petersburg will undoubtedly promote the events industry in north-west Russia and further enhance the city’s image in the international business community.
