CEIR Announces 2017 First Quarter Index Results

展览业研究中心(欧盟环境影响评估中心) reports that growth of the exhibition industry during the first quarter of 2017 resumed after a temporary setback in the fourth quarter of 2016. The performance of the industry, as measured by the CEIR Total Index, posted a moderate year-over-year gain of 1.6% (see Figure 1). However, the industry has continued to underperform the macroeconomy (see Figure 2).

CEIR 指数报告 was developed to provide an objective measure of the annual performance of the exhibition industry. The CEIR 指数报告 measures year-over-year changes in four key metrics including:

  • Net Square Feet of Exhibit Space Sold
  • Professional Attendance
  • Number of Exhibiting Companies
  • Total Event Gross Revenue

In addition to providing percentage changes for each metric year-over-year going back to 2013, the full report provides readers with forecasts for 2017 through 2019. Additionally, market size estimates for number of exhibitors, number of attendees, total net square footage and event gross revenue are reported for the exhibition industry overall as well as for each of the 14 sectors tracked in this report. 点击这里 for more information on the CEIR 指数报告.
