„The industry benefits from many best industry practices being shared.“

The Marketing Award addresses "the best marketing strategy in a changing exhibition world". The Industry Partner Award is looking for "Success stories: alliances shaping the future of the exhibition industry". The Digital Innovation Award is asking "How does your digital innovation support physical events?". For the Operations and Services Award, applications on "How to get back into operation with our services and providers in uncertain times" are called for. And the Sustainable Development Award seeks to highlight the "Best carbon emissions reduction initiative".

Entries should reflect the theme of each category, decided upon by UFI Working Groups – industry experts who manage and lead the UFI Awards. "Through the UFI awards, we can provide our members and the industry with a double win every year: The winners receive global recognition from what has become the most reputable global exhibition awards scheme. And the industry benefits from many best industry practices being shared", says Kai Hattendorf, UFI's managing director and CEO.

The entry deadline for all categories is March 21, 2022, application is open to exhibition organisers, venue operators and service providers – both from UFI members and non-members.
