Le CEIR annonce ses résultats du troisième trimestre 2019

Le secteur des expositions continue de croître modestement

DALLAS, 12 December 2019 – Le Centre de Recherche sur l’Industrie des Expositions (CEIR) reports that growth of the exhibition industry continued during the third quarter of 2019. The CEIR Total Index, a measure of exhibition industry performance, posted a modest year-over-year gain of 0.6% (see Figure 1) even though it under-performed the overall economy as reflected in the inflation-adjusted GDP (see Figure 2). While the performance during the third quarter was weaker than the first two quarters of the year, it was a slight improvement over the same quarter in 2018 when it registered a year-over-year anemic gain of 0.2%.

“The growth of the exhibition industry should pick up the pace moderately during the fourth quarter of the year through the first half of next year despite uncertainties surrounding trade negotiations with China and slowing world economic growth,” said CEIR Economist Allen Shaw, Ph.D., Chief Economist for Global Economic Consulting Associates, Inc.

Technologies des communications et de l’information; Bâtiment, construction, maison et réparation; et Nourriture tous ont enregistré de solides gains d’une année sur l’autre. En revanche, Education; Discretionary Consumer Goods and Services; et Matières premières et science ont enregistré des baisses d’une année sur l’autre.

All exhibition metrics in the third quarter posted positive year-over-year gains except net square feet (NSF) (Figures 3 and 4). Real revenues (nominal revenues adjusted for inflation) and exhibitors posted the largest increases of 1.7% and 0.6%, respectively. Attendees rose a modest 0.5% and net square feet (NSF) dropped 0.3%.

“In line with the macroeconomy, the growth of the exhibition industry has continued but at a slower pace,” said CEIR CEO Cathy Breden, CMP, CAE, CEM. “The growth during the first three quarters indicates that the exhibition industry is on track to register a ninth consecutive year of growth, albeit slowing growth as was forecasted by our economist in the Rapport sur l'indice CEIR 2019.»

En plus d'établir l'index trimestriel des expositions, le CEIR propose également des outils d'analyse, un rapport annuel approfondi et une conférence de prospective. Le Analyseur de performances d'événements CEIR fournit aux organisateurs d'expositions un outil pour mesurer les performances d'un événement dans son secteur, ainsi que dans l'ensemble de l'industrie. Le Rapport sur l'indice CEIR provides an economic overview of the exhibition industry, including key indicators for growth, and includes a three-year forecast for the business-to-business exhibitions and events industry. Together, these resources provide insights for developing business strategies and goals.
