The association predicts that global exhibition space will expand by 3.5 million square metres between 2007 and 2010.Paul Vincent concluded: "ADNEC strongly believes in events such as this as we feel that they provide an effective networking platform where professionals from the exhibition industry can exchange ideas and experiences. Our participation at UFI Open Seminar in the Middle East is also only weeks after we participated in the UFI Open Seminar in Asia, which was held in Macao, China; as well as several other events in Australia and Europe."
