After a year of a tumultuous U.S. administration and erratic policies, the exhibitions industry continues to grow and prove that face-to-face interactions are important in the business model. The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) provides countless insights for the exhibitions industry on attendee engagement, show strategy and much more.
