Our message for GED 2020: EXHIBITIONS ARE KEY TO REBUILDING ECONOMIES!

We will concentrate on the idea of connecting, reconnecting, starting and rebuilding communities and economies.

EXHIBITIONS
…are key to rebuilding economies by reconnecting and rebuilding businesses

…are the marketplaces and meeting places for entire industries – they are the leading sales channel especially for SMEs

…help businesses rebuild through stimulating growth

…are the perfect way to combine the digital world with face-to-face
