CEIR Index Results Released for the Second Quarter of 2016

The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) has released CEIR Index results for this year’s second quarter. Reflecting a sluggish macro economy and declining corporate profits, growth for the business-to-business exhibition industry during the second quarter of 2016 has slowed. The industry’s performance, as measured by the CEIR Total Index, posted a modest  year-on-year gain of 1.6% in 2016Q2 (see Figure 1), compared to 3.7% in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 2.6% in the first quarter of 2016.
