We are celebrating Exhibitions Day on June 6, an annual event that shines a spotlight on the power of events and trade shows. Bringing buyers and sellers together has a huge impact on the economy, with data showing we are all involved in a $91 Billion industry.
Exhibitions and events contribute over $91 billion to the U.S. GDP each year.
“Recent data shows the economic contribution of events, which includes direct spending of organizers, exhibitors, attendees and venues, totaled $91 billion in 2017,” said Allen Shaw, Ph.D., Chief Economist for Global Economic Consulting Associates, Inc. “This notable increase from previous records further emphasizes the importance of face-to-face connections in conducting business.”
But we know it’s not just about the big economic impact. It’s about the little moments at events and trade shows around the world that help advance human objectives. Each of our clients is working to advocate for their missions and achieve their objectives so today and every day, The Expo Group is here Helping People Perform at a Higher Level.
