IELA Wins Exhibition World and UFI GED Award for 'Highest Profile Online Activity'
GED is open to all who are interested in increasing the visibility of the Exhibition Industry, not only regionally but also on a global scale. The fourth edition of Global Exhibitions Day generated huge interest this year as industry professionals from as far apart as Australia and Argentina, Norway and South Africa, driven and supported by the 41 partner associations, joined in with the celebrations.
IELA organised an Event Logistics Horizon Project, a campaign for active data collection, with a view to boosting industry statistics and knowledge as well as the Voices of the Exhibition Industry messages promoting career opportunities in event logistics.

“GED is a perfect symbol for our industry – it’s a huge success that is based on teamwork, trust, and collaboration”, says UFI President Craig Newman. “No-one can succeed alone in our industry. It is great to see everyone working in this industry getting involved and coming up with a range of interesting and unusual activities to promote exhibitions. Seeing the action unfold has made me feel proud to be a member of such an innovative and inspirational community.”
The idea behind the IELA GED19 Event Logistics Horizon project
IELA launched this initiative following in the steps of international scientists who succeeded in identifying the first image of a black hole.
This scientific project merged telescopes from all over the world and used them as one giant telescope. Incredible amounts of data were collected to finally achieve what was seen previously as the impossible. IELA saw its initiative, the Event Logistics Horizon Project, as the starting point of its 2020 IELA DATA ROOM. This is a vast project of comprehensive data collection on worldwide exhibition logistics which will contribute greatly to effectively sharing data and working closely together with the common goal of taking the industry beyond current limits.
The International Exhibition Logistics Association is the global industry network enhancing the professionalism of the transportation logistics and freight handling segments of the exhibition & event industry. IELA works with venue owners, organisers and national associations educating, training and sharing expertise for safe and secure operations around the world. The quality brand IELA is currently represented by 175 members and 31 affiliates in 56 countries. Learn more at www.iela.org.
