CEIR Attendee Floor Engagement Study 04 COVER

El Centro de Investigación de la Industria de Exposiciones (CEIR) announced today the release of Part Four: Exhibitor In-booth Tactics – Looking to the Future – Areas to Improve and Interest in New Models, the fourth report in its newest series on attendee floor engagement.

This report documents that most exhibitors are engaged and committed to using the business-to-business (B2B) exhibition channel and intend to invest in improvements to augment the positive outcomes for exhibiting. Over three quarters have plans to ramp up their exhibit program and many exhibitors are reaching out to organizers to help them maximize their attendee engagement efforts.

In addition to enhancing their exhibit programs, exhibitors express interest in considering new models, floor layouts or other options, if made available by exhibition organizers; while a third are content with the trade show model as it is. Options generating the most interest include in-person, face-to-face engagement options, thus signaling the essential importance of retaining in-person attendee engagement.

“This particular report affirms the health of the B2B exhibition channel,” said CEIR CEO Cathy Breden, CMP, CAE. “Exhibitors are clearly committed to continuous quality improvement and evolving their exhibit programs to align with how attendees are looking to engage with them at events. Exhibitors and organizers would both benefit from reading this report.”

This 12-page report provides a full list of the range of additions and improvements exhibitors are considering adding to their exhibit program with a goal of enhancing their attendee engagement efforts. It also quantifies the percentage of exhibitors open to new models, floor layouts and other options made available by exhibition organizers in the next several years and reports on level of interest in each option.

In addition to total results, this report identifies unique differences by exhibitor by industry sector, the extent of exhibition activity and other key demographics.
