Bookmark this post! CEIR’s extensive library offers a plethora of information about exhibition marketing and the value of face-to-face interaction. So much so in fact, that you may ask yourself where to start when looking for CEIR research. What is a POE 14.01 or an AC39.14? Believe it or not, these letters and numbers actually mean something. They represent a series that has its own area of focus, so you can know where to go depending on what type of information you are seeking. But even if you don’t know what series a report may fall under, the CEIR website offers a search tool using key words to search all CEIR reports.
