Thank You Partners and Donors!

CEIR would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the supporters of our foundation.

Read what our partners have to say:

mdg relies on CEIR data to guide the strategies, tactics and messaging angles it uses to market a wide variety of shows — from large category-leading events to niche invitation-only exhibitions. Additionally, CEIR research provides valuable insights that assist us with budgeting, appealing to the “next” generation of event attendees and improving the onsite experience. The intelligence we glean from CEIR reports helps us to plan effective campaigns, set appropriate benchmarks and measure results.”
