The 2017 CEIR Index Report is an established and trusted tool for exhibition industry professionals. It is designed to be representative of the entire universe of business-to-business exhibitions measuring the four component values – NSF, Exhibitor, Attendance and Revenue – with predictions through 2016 and data tables that provide actual numbers for each metric in each sector. Additionally, each of the further-defined 14 industry sectors allows organizers to compare their own show data to others in the same industry sector. Global Economic Consulting Association, Inc. (GECA) provided the data analysis for the Index..
