    JHB Expo Centre CEO appointed Vice Chair of UFI Middle East Africa Chapter.

    1 April 2015 - Johannesburg Expo Centre CEO, Craig Newman, has been appointed as the Vice Chair of the Middle East Africa Chapter for UFI, The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry. This follows Mr Newman’s appointment to the UFI Executive Committee by the main Board of Directors in November last year.


    Mr Newman will be replacing Saif Al Midfa, the CEO of The Sharjah Expo Centre, who has taken up the position of Chairman of the Middle East Africa Chapter, following the resignation of Former Chairman, Mr. Abdul al Omran from Riyadh, who is leaving the industry to pursue new ventures.

    UFI, The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, is the association of trade show organisers, fairground owners, national and international associations of the exhibition industry, and its partners. As of 2014, it has more than 600 members from 85 countries.

    “We wish to congratulate Craig Newman on his appointment,” says Paul Woodward, UFI Managing Director. “The Middle East Africa Chapter has recognised the importance of having Africa represented in this Chapter’s leadership, and we thank Mr Newman for his willingness to take up the challenge.”

    The main objectives of the UFI Executive Committee include dealing with matters of interest for national and international associations of the exhibition industry. This takes into account information on national exhibition markets, the worldwide promotion of trade fair media, a global statistical overview of the tradeshow industry and much more.

    On his appointment to the position of Vice Chair, Mr Newman congratulated Mr Saif Al Midfa on his appointment to the Chairman position.

    “I wish to express my appreciation to the members of the chapter for their confidence in me to serve as the Vice Chair for our region,” says Mr Newman. “I look forward to bringing Africa to the forefront of the global exhibitions industry. We believe that Africa represents the next frontier for growth and development for UFI, and global membership can only benefit by giving Africa its support,” concluded Newman.
