UFI launches the fifth edition of its future leaders grant scheme

The UFI has launched the 2020 Next Generation Leadership (NGL) Grant, which recognises and supports the best talent in the exhibition industry.

Up to five industry professionals who demonstrate clear initiatives for driving change and innovation within their areas of activity will receive grants.

An international jury, led by UFI President Mary Larkin will select the future leaders based on their exceptional initiative in driving change and innovation in their sector of the exhibition industry.

The chosen grantees will have the opportunity to present at the UFI Global Congress 2020 in Muscat (Oman). Furthermore, they will benefit from 12 months of mentorship from an executive-level industry representative.

“The UFI Next Generation Leadership Grant is all about promoting the diverse talent we have in the exhibition industry all around the world, and giving our rising professionals the international recognition and opportunities they deserve,” she said.

The deadline for applications is 6 March 2020.
