7 June is the Global Exhibitions Day

Jaa

Wednesday, 7 June is the Global Exhibitions Day. Exhibitions deserve a theme day of their own since their economic impact on their surrounding regions is larger than is generally assumed. According to a recent study, the economic impact of Messukeskus Helsinki on the whole metropolitan area amounts to up to EUR 250 million in 2017.

This is the second year that the Global Exhibitions Day will be organised. This theme day is coordinated by UFI, The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry.

The figure is based on a study carried out by the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences under a commission from Messu- ja tapahtumajärjestäjät ry, a Finnish association for exhibition and event organisers. The figure includes the direct and indirect turnover, employment and tax revenue effects generated by exhibitions. It is based on information on the number of visitors, exhibitors and meeting and congress guests, their use of money, the duration of the trip to the fair or congress and the departure area.

Messukeskus expects strong performance in 2017 due to an exceptionally strong summer in terms of congresses, in addition to a solid basic programme. In the coming months, Messukeskus will host guests attending conferences such as the world’s largest allergy congress EAACI, the WGC-2017 glaucoma congress, the AMEE 2017 conference focusing on the training of medical professionals, and the highly esteemed scifi and fantasy event Worldcon.

”We promote Finnish trade and industry by enabling positive human collisions between 1.1 million visitors and 9,000 exhibitors annually. Furthermore, we host more than 2,200 meetings and congresses per year. On the Global Exhibitions Day, we will celebrate the fact that the market research company Taloustutkimus ranked Messukeskus as by far and away the best-known company in its sector and gave us the highest overall score among our competitors,” said Anni Vepsäläinen, Managing Director of Messukeskus.

According to a survey by the Finnish Advertising Council, exhibitions and fairs are Finland’s seventh largest media. Among the various marketing communication channels, the ones that have shown the largest growth in recent years are digital marketing and events. It is estimated that the value of the global exhibition industry is worth USD 55 billion.

Messukeskus will celebrate the Global Exhibitions Day by announcing a super offer for its customers
