Exhibition industry on further growth worldwide

According to the 18th UFI Global Barometer, the exhibition industry remains geared for continued growth in 2017 - despite an ongoing slowdown in global economic growth, and a decline in open trade promoters on the international stage.

Worldwide, the exhibition industry remains geared for continued growth in 2017.
Results of the 18th UFI Global Barometer survey indicate turnover increases for a majority of companies in 2017, following two years of relatively stable levels of operating profit. This latest edition of UFI’s biannual industry survey includes data from 240 companies in 54 countries. The study delivers outlooks and analysis on ten major markets: Brazil, China, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, the UK and the US.

In addition, four aggregated regional zones have been analysed. The US, Mexico, China and the UK perform above average. Brazil and Russia also indicate a positive trend in turnover, but for 2017 only. In Germany and Italy however, 2017 appears at this stage weaker than 2016. In line with UFI’s objective to provide vital data and best practices to the whole exhibition industry, the full results can be downloaded at www.ufi.org/research. The next UFI Global Barometer Survey will be conducted in June 2017.
