A Deep Dive into the Generations

In the exhibition industry face-to-face interaction is very important; it’s what makes the industry go round. Many articles are taking a closer look at the future of the industry through research on the different generations. Millennials are said to be a generation that could potentially exclude themselves from face-to-face interaction. In the CEIR report Generational Differences in Face-to-Face Interaction Preferences and Activities, findings suggest this opinion is far from reality.

This report shares insight on the generational differences and similarities within all generations currently in the workforce.

  • The youngest professionals have preferences that mirror older professionals.
  • Findings among Boomers and Traditionalist professionals indicate continued commitment and perceived value of exhibitions in fulfilling their business needs.
  • This report suggests that the ability to interact online with colleagues offers synergistic opportunities to attract attendees to exhibitions, more so with younger professionals.
