The Center for Exhibition Industry Research released its “CEIR Index Report, An Analysis of the 2010 Exhibition Industry and Future Outlook” that indicated the overall trade show industry fell for the third straight year last year, dipping 2.4 percent.
The report was released during the SISO CEO Summit on tap April 10-13 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, Fla.
CEIR President and CEO Doug Ducate gave a presentation on the research at the summit and said the declines were disappointing, especially after the third and fourth quarters saw positive upticks last year.
