CEIR anuncia los resultados del cuarto trimestre de 2018

La industria de exposiciones continúa creciendo

El Centro de Investigación de la Industria de Exposiciones (CEIR) reports that the recent growth of the exhibition industry continued during the fourth quarter of 2018. The growth of the industry, as measured by the CEIR Total Index, accelerated from a year-over-year gain of 0.9% in the third quarter to 2.5% in the fourth quarter (see Figure 1). With this stronger performance, the exhibition industry has narrowed the growth gap with inflation-adjusted GDP (see Figure 2).

For the year 2018 as a whole, the Total Index increased by 1.9%, just slightly lower than the 2.0% gain in 2017. At 109.0 (2014=100), the Total Index in 2018 surpassed the previous peak of 107.6 in 2007.

“Nearly a decade after the Great Recession, the exhibition industry in 2018 has finally entered an aggregate size above the previous peak,” said CEIR CEO Cathy Breden, CMP, CAE. “Barring an unexpected recession, the overall growth for the industry in 2019 will continue, albeit at a modest pace, as the economy remains healthy, even though a little softer than 2018.”

Además de compilar el índice de exposición trimestral, CEIR también ofrece herramientas analíticas, un informe anual en profundidad y una conferencia sobre perspectivas. El Analizador de rendimiento de eventos CEIR proporciona a los organizadores de exposiciones una herramienta para medir el rendimiento de un evento en su sector, así como en la industria en general. El Informe del índice CEIR provides an economic overview of the exhibition industry, including key indicators for growth. Together, these resources provide insights for developing business strategies and goals. The 2019 CEIR Index Report will be released in April and will include a three-year forecast for the business-to-business exhibitions and events industry.

El anual Conferencia de predicción CEIR, scheduled for 16-17 September 2019 at the MGM National Harbor, will provide exhibition professionals with macroeconomic insights and help attendees understand the economic and political factors impacting the exhibition industry.
