Looking back to what was 2010 there were a ton of stories that caught the nations attentions; the Chilean miners trapped underground for 69 days, the Gulf of Mexico Oil spill that will be sending shockwaves through the entire country from years to come, and maybe the biggest story of them all the continued struggle to revive the slumping economy. Several months back we mentioned that at least from the point of view of one economist things were finally getting back on the right track. According to Gunther Bright, VP of the Global Client Group “We’re seeing a significant shift to a more positive outlook among finance executives as companies have moved from simply surviving the present to investing in growth for the future. At the same time, the experience of the recession set the stage for a newfound and long-term focus on financial discipline and management rigor”. Now comes word from the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) that for the first time in a while trade show growth is on the rise!
In a release from the research agency, the CEIR is stating that according to their findings the third quarter was witness to the first upswing in trade show growth in nine quarters. “After a record setting nine consecutive quarters of negative quarter over quarter performance, the third quarter of the 2010 CEIR Index reports all four metrics show improvement over the third quarter of 2009. This is most welcome news and tends to confirm some of the anecdotal reports we have reviewed. It should be noted that the third quarter is historically the weakest of the four quarters and has had the greatest decline. The test will be to see if this positive trend continues into the fourth quarter of 2010 and then the all important first quarter of 2011.”
