CEIR Webinar: COVID-19: Impact on US Economy and B2B Exhibition Industry

July 15, 2020

Four months into the COVID-19 Pandemic, the US and global economies are in a recession. Because of lock-downs and travel bans, the B2B exhibitions industry shut down in mid-March. Since then, phased openings and social distancing have created a climate of extreme uncertainty for organizers struggling to produce events. The US economic impact through May 2020, from exhibitions not being held, was estimated at $1.8 billion.

This webinar will provide an economic update, key indicators to follow and possible scenarios for recovery of the economy and B2B exhibitions industry.

Cathy Breden, CMP, CAE, CEM, CEO – Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) will moderate this important, relevant and timely discussion and presentation with Allen Shaw, PhD., President & Chief Economist of Global Economic Consulting Associates.

Available to everyone.


12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CDT
