One of the hardest responsibilities we have in the exhibition business is predicting the future. We constantly have to foresee where our shows will be often years ahead, and that requires economic and market-driven information.
The CEIR Predict conference is a one-day, sharply-focused event for executives with exceptional panels of industry leaders focused on predicting where the exhibition industry is heading, and drilling down into specific industry segments based on their first hand experiences with their own events. In just one day complete with short, focused sessions, with the leaders of groups such as the Consumer Electronics Association, National Association of Home Builders, Hanley Wood, Bain Capital, New York University, to name a few, you will get an industry forecast, and the opportunity to network with many of the leaders of our industry.
To maximize focus, this conference intentionally limits content to specific data and information on the outlook for the economy, the exhibition industry and all 14 industry sectors. Supported by the data generated in the CEIR Index, this is a must-attend event for any senior executive with an eye to the future of their exhibition business. The content of the program has been developed by a core group of industry leaders, is fully supported by the CEIR Board of Directors. This is one program that I and many of our peers put on our calendars a year out. Dennis Slater from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and I will moderate the event, so I can assure you that we will drive the panelists and speakers to deliver the answers on the outlook for their industries.
