Anbu Varathan assumes charge as UFI president for 2020-21

Bengaluru, Nov 19 (UNI) Mr Anbu Varathan, Director General & CEO, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) and Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) formally assumed office as the president of UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry, for 2020 - 21.
Thus Anbu became the first Indian ever to occupy the top post of UFI in its 95 years of existence, according to a release here on Thursday.
Speaking on the occasion, Anbu said, “I’m extremely happy to assume the Presidency of UFI and feel privileged to be the first Indian to get elected to this role in more than 9 decades of UFI’s history. I wish to thank the UFI board for giving this opportunity to work with the global exhibition industry. It is a daunting task but also an opportunity for me to enable the Indian exhibition industry to be vibrant and stronger and get its due recognition at the global level.
''I also look back with pride IMTMA’s journey in transforming IMTEX into a great international show, an ecosystem in itself and enabling BIEC as the best green venue and an industry infrastructure.”
Anbu has been a board member of UFI since 2011 and serves as a member on the UFI Executive Committee. The UFI Board of Directors elected him as the President of UFI for 2020 - 21.
UFI is the leading global association of the world’s trade show organisers and exhibition centre operators, as well as the major national and international exhibition associations, and selected partners of the exhibition industry. Initially, UFI was created under the name “Union des Foires Internationales” (UFI), or “Union of International Fairs” in English, or “Verband internationaler Messen” in German. The name change to “UFI”, accompanied by the tagline “The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry” was decided upon by the General Meeting in Cairo, Egypt, on 20 October 2003.
UFI directly represents around 50,000 exhibition industry employees globally, and also works closely with its 56 national and regional associations’ members. Seven hundred and eighty two member organisations in 83 countries and regions around the world are presently signed up as members. More than 927 international trade fairs proudly bear the UFI approved label, a quality guarantee for visitors and exhibitors alike.
