UFI has consolidated the results of three of its recent focus meetings and combined this with the presentations of entrants in UFI award competitions to create a series of UFI Insight documents.
The aim of these reports is to provide UFI members with “insight” into challenges currently facing the exhibition industry in the areas of Travel and Accommodation, Logistics during Build-Up and Dismantling and Sustainable Development.
These UFI Insights aim to provide readers with relevant information on different facets of the exhibition industry. The reports do not reflect an official UFI position, nor should they be read as reflecting UFI guidelines. They are intended to provide the reader with information on some of the practices current in the exhibition industry today.

CEIR Examines Effect of Today's Economy on Exhibitions
The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) recently released RCSR 21.09 The Effect of Economic Recessions on Exhibitions, which includes research that offers insight into participation at exhibitions in the United States during challenging economic times.
Last year, the US National Bureau of Economic Research published news that the United States is in a state of economic recession which may have commenced as early as December of 2007. With the US unemployment rate at its highest in 16 years and economists unable to predict when the country will see positive growth again, exhibiting companies must be able to justify exhibition participation and be assured of a strong ROI from exhibiting - more so than ever before.
In the 1980s, CEIR published two reports titled How Should Exhibitors React to a Recession? and The Effect of Economic Recessions on Trade Shows. These two reports have been revisited and supplemented to include data from each year for 1968 to 2007. These new reports indicate that even though attendance and exhibit space may decrease in recessionary periods, key buyers continue to attend each year and the percentage of attendees that actually have plans to purchase remains high.
The Effect of Economic Recessions on Exhibitions is available for free to CEIR members and for purchase by CEIR non-members at $48 USD. For more information please go to www.ceir.org
