Offering unique content and keynote speakers from inside and outside the sector, the Congress will look at the future of the industry. Alongside networking opportunities, attendees will have the chance to exchange lessons learned, and gain new insights and ideas.
“This year, more than ever, the UFI Global Congress will offer a safe and memorable experience.
