Les données du premier trimestre 2015 reflètent des gains continus

 

DALLAS, 1 June 2015 – Today, the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) released 2015 first quarter data collected for the annual Indice CEIR report. Despite the severe winter, the performance of the business-to-business exhibition industry, as measured by the CEIR Total Index, posted a year-on-year gain of 4.6 percent (see Figure 1). This increase reflects strong industry growth, marking it as the highest increase since the second quarter of 2007.

“The performance in the first quarter was remarkable considering that the east coast was frequently paralyzed under severe winter weather,” noted CEIR Economist Allen Shaw, Ph.D., Chief Economist for Global Economic Consulting Associates, Inc.

2015 Q1 also marked the 19th consecutive quarter of year-on-year growth. While the growth of the exhibition industry lagged behind the GDP during most of last three years, the exhibition industry outperformed the macro economy as real GDP gained 2.7 percent year-on-year (see Figure 2).

The year-on-year gain spread across all 14 sectors, especially Building, Construction, Home & Repair and Government. For the overall exhibition industry, all four metrics in the first quarter posted year-on-year gain. The strongest metric was in Real Revenues, which rose an impressive 7.3 percent, followed by Net Square Feet – increasing by 4.1 percent. Exhibitors increased 3.3 percent, whereas Professional Attendance could have been influenced the most by the severe weather and yet it rose a relatively strong 3.7 percent (see Figures 3 and 4).

“We are very encouraged to see that the exhibition industry is continuing its upward climb. While industry growth has been moderate, the strong performance of Q1 is certainly offering positive indicators for the near future,” said CEIR President & CEO Brian Casey, CEM. “After two challenging recessions, it's wonderful to see this kind of performance despite the impact of weather.”
