CEIR annonce les résultats de l'indice du troisième trimestre 2018

Le Centre de recherche sur l'industrie des expositions (CEIR) reports that the recent growth of the exhibition industry continued during the third quarter of 2018. The performance of the industry, as measured by the CEIR Total Index, posted a modest year-over-year gain of 1.0% (see Figure 1), even though it underperformed the macroeconomy (see Figure 2). While the performance during the third quarter was weaker than the first two quarters of the year, it was a significant improvement over the same quarter in 2017 when it registered a year-over-year decline of 0.2%.

“The growth of the exhibition industry should pick up the pace during the fourth quarter of the year and, at least, through the first half of next year as the economy remains strong despite uncertainties surrounding the trade negotiation with China, volatile stock market and slowing world economic growth,” said CEIR Economist Allen Shaw, Ph.D., Chief Economist for Global Economic Consulting Associates, Inc.

Biens et services de consommation discrétionnaire; Gouvernement; et Medical and Health Care tous ont enregistré de solides gains d’une année sur l’autre. En revanche, Business Services; Consumer Goods and Retail Trade; et Éducation ont enregistré des baisses d’une année sur l’autre.

All exhibition metrics in the third quarter posted positive year-over-year gains (Figures 3 and 4). Real revenues (nominal revenues adjusted for inflation) and attendees posted the largest increase of 2.4% and 1.1%, respectively, followed by net square feet (NSF) which rose 0.6%, whereas exhibitors gained 0.1%.

Several industries have been in a secular decline including Business Services; Consumer Goods and Retail Trade; Éducation; et Financial, Legal and Real Estate sectors. “Anemic growth in the number of exhibitors is in part attributable to secular downward trends evidenced in these sectors,” said CEIR CEO Cathy Breden, CMP, CAE. “Barring any other negative downward trends in the economy, and until these sectors stabilize, the overall growth for the industry will remain modest.”
