CEIR Predict 2022 Forecasts Where Events Are Going

Save the Date for 15-16 September

DALLAS, 13 January 2022 – Today, the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) announced it will hold its PREDICT Annual Exhibition Industry Outlook Conference on 15-16 September 2022 at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Md. For more than 10 years, Predict has served to provide insights into the future performance of the exhibitions industry along with a forecast for the upcoming three years.

“Now more than ever the business-to-business exhibitions industry needs new and provocative insights to manage the fast-paced changing landscape of how we produce shows,” said CEIR CEO Cathy Breden, CMP, CAE, CEM. “The perspectives presented at Predict both from within and outside the industry provide a balanced and stimulating take on how we move forward bringing buyers and sellers together.”

Each year, Predict attendees leave with insights gleaned from experts in macro-economic, socio-economic and geopolitical backgrounds. The 2022 conference will once again serve as the only industry conference to present future-forward information needed for executives to make strategic business decisions. Registration will open in early June and the program will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Each year, Predict guides trade show community leadership with insights not found in any other conference,” said CEIR Chairperson of the Board Dennis Smith, Senior Director, Exposition Sales and Business Development with AVIXA. “I look forward to guiding CEIR in 2022 and helping to create a dynamic program that propels the industry forward.”

“As far back as the 2016 elections, Predict has proven itself again and again to offer insight in unexpected and very accurate ways for the exhibitions industry, the political climate and the economy,” said CEIR Predict Advisory Council Chair Vincent Polito. “The conference continues to be a must attend event for senior executives from all parts of the industry where we come together to collaboratively connect the dots that allow us to intelligently and passionately prepare for the future.”
