SPARGO Managed Government Events Outpace CEIR Published Industry Stats in 2015
The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) published the 2015 CEIR Index which provides a view of economic performance across 14 industry sectors. The government sector showed an increase in exhibiting companies (+3%), exhibit sq. ft. (+2%) and revenue (+3%).
SPARGO managed exhibit sales for ten key government events in 2015. Among the ten are several TSE Fasted 50 and members of TSNN’s 2015 Top 250 Trade Shows. As an aggregate, SPARGO’s portfolio of government sector events strongly outpaced the industry with increases in exhibiting companies (+18%), exhibit sq. ft. (+18%) and revenue (+12%).
“After a few years of challenges in the government sector due to sequestration and travel restrictions, we are excited to see strong results coming in. Partnering with the leading organizations in the sector, who work tirelessly to build events that benefit the government community as a whole, is something we are very proud of,” said James Spargo, Senior Vice President, Government, Technology and Industry Group, SPARGO, Inc.
