The Global Exhibitions Day has been set up to increase the visibility of the Exhibition Industry regionally and globally. GED celebrates the trade fair and exhibition business and highlights the benefits and effects it generates. Each year, thousands of members of the industry take actions to promote trade fairs and exhibitions. 

Global Exhibitions Day is held annually on the first Wednesday of June. GED2022 is therefore set to be celebrated on 1st June 2022!



Our message for GED 2021: Exhibitions are the key instrument to implement and accelerate transformation towards sustainable and digital economies!


On the occasion of this year’s Global Exhibitions Day, we discussed the state of our industry in Europe at this point of the pandemic, the perspectives for reopening & restarting and explore opportunities for the mid and long term with Eric Philippart from the European Commission. Testimonials from several countries and subsectors of the exhibition industry provided an overview and named the most pressing issues.
