Celebrating Our Industry

Global Exhibition Day 2018


The annual Global Exhibitions Day (GED) is coming on its third year. It is a wonderful way to raise awareness of the outstanding contribution to economic prosperity made by the exhibitions industry. 

The commemorations for GED, which was held on 6 June this year, helped celebrate the exhibition industry’s role and the positive impact it has on jobs, business, innovation and local investment. 

The campaign reached many millions of people and 300 GED related videos have been produced. GED events and programmes this year focused on two key issues: industry advocacy, and attracting the right talents. HML has been providing placements and mentorship for students from local tertiary institutions. Trainees are offered opportunities to experience the challenges and fun of working in the exhibition and convention industries, which are not in their text books!
