The UFI World Congress, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, founded in Milan in 1925 and currently boasting a membership of 625 resources from 85 countries, representing a total of more than 4,500 trade fairs, will be held in November 2015, at the end of Expo Milano 2015. 

The event will return to Milan after 67 years and will be held at  MiCo – Milano Congressi, the congress centre of Fondazione Fiera Milano which strongly supported its candidacy.

The decision to entrust Milan with the organization of the Congress was taken a few days ago during the meeting of the UFI Executive Committee in Shanghai, and will be ratified in June 2013 during the Association’s Board Meeting, set to be held in Sweden.  

This information was revealed by Corrado Peraboni, General Manager of Fondazione Fiera Milano, former Vice-President of the UFI European capital and one of the members of UFI’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors who commented on the acquisition as follows: “This decision once again underscores the importance of the Milanese trade fair system on an international level, the object, over the past decade of a profound transformation piloted by Fondazione Fiera Milano and launched to provide our country with a trade fair and congress hub capable of competing with increasingly aggressive foreign competition.”   

The event, scheduled to last 3 days and expected to be attended by around 450 delegates, including exhibition centres and associations,  will be managed directly by Fondazione Fiera Milano and by Fiera Milano Congressi, and will serve as an additional opportunity for the whole city of Milan to boost territorial marketing and capitalize on image, thus crowning the results achieved by the Universal Exposition.
