What is Predict?
Predict is the only conference about the exhibition industry that focuses on the findings of the CEIR Index, financial trends and economic factors affecting business sectors right now—and in the future.
How is Predict different from other conferences?
In today’s economy, leaders must be strategic, adaptable, and able to quickly respond to changing market dynamics. Peer learning and information exchange will help leaders in the industry to better respond and plan for the coming year.
Experts will address the global economy and its impact on the exhibition industry, M&A and lending, how major sectors are faring and what issues and challenges might be expected.
