Predict 2015 Marks Another Great Success for CEIR and the Overall Exhibition Industry

Published on : Saturday, October 3, 2015

CEIRPredict: CEIR’s Annual Exhibition Industry Outlook Conference drew a record-breaking 139 attendees, all top level executives who gathered on 16-17 September 2015 in Chicago to learn about the future of the exhibition industry.


“We are very pleased with this year’s performance of Predict,” said CEIR President and CEO Brian Casey, CEM. “The content was phenomenal and really resonated with the audience. Every year we attempt to improve on the content and this year was exceptional. I hope all that attended agree it was a home run.”


“It has been a great year for CEIR and we are very proud of this year’s Predict results,” added 2015 CEIR Chairman Britton Jones. “We are receiving positive feedback that reflects the immense value this meeting offers our industry.”


Industry insiders presented topics on notable trends within the trade show industry and how they will affect the way in which organizers approach their strategies for increasing their exhibitions’ performance. In addition to evaluating happenings within the exhibition industry, Predict looked outside of the industry for overall economic trends and indicators. Keynote speaker Professor Amir Sufi, Ph.D., University of Chicago & Research Associate, National Bureau of Economic Research pointed out that a weak recovery in household spending and the persistent issues presented by income inequality will continue to affect the overall economy and, in turn, the exhibition industry.
