“We are optimistic for the performance of the industry overall this year. Economic and job growth should continue to drive expansion in exhibitions,” said CEIR Economist Allen Shaw, Ph.D., Chief Economist for Global Economic Consulting Associates, Inc.

The overall CEIR index is forecast to grow at a relatively robust rate of 2.8%, a full percentage point higher than the 2014 rate. Over 2016 and 2017, CEIR expects the overall exhibition industry to continue to grow strongly, albeit at a slower pace. The current projection shows growth at 2.4% in 2016 and 2.0% in 2017. Notably, this performance represents the fastest sustained growth in the history of the CEIR 指数. By 2017, the Total index of the overall exhibition industry is expected to reach about 1.0% below its previous peak in 2007.
