BF Servizi and Freeman claim the win
A tie vote by the jury of 60 participants at the 2011 Operations Award recognizes the exceptional programmes of both Freeman (USA) and BF Servizi (BolognaFiere Group, Italy) on “smart uses of IT to improve your operations.” Andreas Winckler, Chair of the UFI Operations Committee, explained that, “once again the UFI Operations Award represented a very high level competition. The fact that two of the entries received exactly the same number of votes from a jury of their peers confirms that BolognaFiere Group and Freeman provided convincing and sophisticated concepts.” Cape Town International Convention Centre placed a close third in this year’s UFI operations competition challenge.
