SAVE THE DATE for the 2023 CEIR Predict event.
Predict, CEIR’s Annual Exhibition Industry Outlook Conference will take place at the MGM National Harbor again in 2023. Each year, the conference is designed to provide insights on trends now, and into the future. As its name implies, Predict will help your organization to be future focused by bringing in experts from outside the exhibitions industry to provide big picture insights into the economic, social, political and digital trends occurring in the global marketplace. The future is one we create together and that starts now. That is the purpose of Predict.

If you own, manage or produce B2B exhibitions, and your title is VP or higher, you are qualified to attend.

The 2022 program represented the radically changed business environment. We explored the economic, geo-political and social issues that hold significant influence over public and private businesses, and individuals.

Topics we covered:

• The Economy: What does the economy have in store for us? Are we truly in recovery? What are the indicators we need to follow closely? What about the impact of economic nationalism?
• Cyber Security: With so much focus on physical personal safety, where has that left us from a cyber security standpoint? Are we more vulnerable today than we were?
• Building Global Brands: Should we be less focused on our ‘shows’ and more focused on our global brands? What does that look like?
• The End of Digital Complacency: How are industry-leading global Consumer and B2B brands leveraging both digital technology and digital marketing?

Registration coming early 2023.
