CEIR Index Shows Growth for Q4 2010

The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) has released their data for the fourth quarter of 2010, and the news is good — up 4.1% overall. There were increases in all four key metrics that CEIR measures: Net Square Feet, Revenue, Professional Attendance, and Number of Exhibiting Companies. While each of these aspects saw only a single-digit growth over 2009, this is a very good sign that the industry is on it’s way to recovery. For more details, check out this news release.
