Great news for the exhibitions industry as CEIR reports that trade shows are on a continued growth curve.
Not only do the figures from the newest Center for Exhibit Industry Research (CEIR) report indicate robust growth for the trade show industry in 2015, but the outlook is already bright for 2016.
The exhibitions industry has had 22 consecutive quarters of growth, dating back to 2009, according to the newest index published by CEIR. Charts published with the February 25th press release from the organization show the sturdiest expansion in the first quarter at 4.4% and a continuing strength throughout all of 2015, making the past year the most solid since 2011, when the industry began to bounce back from a sharp decline during the height of the recession from 2008-2010. Perhaps the two strongest indicators are the revenue growth at 6.5% and the attendance advancement by 4.9%.
