Event and Exhibition Market – Dynamics

Show floors have become an outlet for breakout sessions, workshops, and keynotes and provide subject matter expertise in ways that have conventionally been attributed to conferences and congresses. For instance, IAEE’s Expo! Expo! merges tradeshows and conferences. Rotating conferences are another manifestation wherein tradeshows organized by a specific association and companies can collaborate for more diversity and cost benefits. These new business models can help leverage the benefits of other event formats to grow the exhibition market. This shift in business model has had an impact on stand design where the physical layout of the space is projected to include elements of digital communication and technology. With the rise of technology, the focus is shifting towards what is happening within the space, rather than on the space itself where the need is to engage visitors and informing the audience digitally.


Key Drivers and Trends fueling Market Growth:

  • Growing Use of Big Data
  • Increased Focus on Insurance & Security
  • Budget Allocation for Brand Experiences
  • Integration of Trade Shows and Digital Technology

The region is also one of the leading countries for exhibitions across the globe. However, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to hamper the market growth in the country.

APAC is leading in elusive industries such as automotive, defense and technology and in the global supply chain which creates huge demand from businesses around the world to connect with national and international customers in the exhibition platform.
