The exhibitions are an effective tool for promoting products and services, the modernization of industrial enterprises, and driving export growth and the development of city infrastructure while increasing both direct and indirect financial revenues and creating new jobs. According to UFI, the world exhibition industry continues to show steady and consistent growth, despite the challenges, both economic and geopolitical, which exist in different countries.
