UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry, will hold its UFI Latin American (LATAM) Conference in Monterrey, Mexico, 17-19 September 2024. The event will be hosted by the Monterrey Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) and will take place at Cintermex. This will be the second time that the LATAM Conference will be organised in Mexico.
Earlier this year, over 100 industry leaders attended the 2023 LATAM Conference in Costa Rica, and the 2024 conference will hope to build on successful previous editions in Buenos Aires (2022) and Mexico City (2018).
“I am really happy to see that the UFI LATAM Conference has become a must-attend event for exhibition industry professionals in Latin America. With a history ofthree3 on-site editions, where the event has delivered great quality connections and content, we are proud to announce that Monterrey will be our destination for the upcoming edition. Having a very experienced and diligent host is one of the successful elements needed when organising an event. I am confident that we feel completely supported by the professionalism of our host, the CVB of Monterrey and our delegates will be amazed by the city’s charm. I can’t wait to take our community to this amazing city,” says Ana Maria Arango, UFI LATAM regional director and Director of Sponsorship & Partnerships.
David Manllo Valdés, director of Monterrey Convention & Visitors Bureau, adds: “For a city with an industrial and business vocation like Monterrey, where the positive impact of trade fairs and events on the economy is recognised, being able to receive industry leaders and professionals to strengthen the activity in the region is a great opportunity and an achievement that we celebrate. In the Mountain City, we are ready to host the UFI LATAM Conference, and provide all the support to make this event a successful experience.”
Open to UFI members and non-members, the 2024 UFI LATAM Conference will bring together industry professionals from all over the region and beyond for engaging content, networking opportunities and social activities to acquaint the participants of the richness of the welcoming city.
