Growth & expansion opportunities:

The recent rise in conference and trade show attendance is a sharp turnaround from recessionary years, when poor business conditions resulted in decreased demand from the industry’s primary downstream markets and a drop in the average number of attendees. The Trade Show and Conference Planning industry experienced improvements in three of the past five years, largely due to modest growth in corporate profit, which grew at an annualized 0.8% over the five years to 2017. Over the next five years, continued growth in corporate profit will benefit the marketing budgets of industry clients, enabling businesses to increase expenditure on conventions, conferences and trade shows. Increased business travel and attendance rates will also provide a revenue boost for the Trade Show and Conference Planning industry. As a result, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 2.1% to $15.6 billion over the five years to 2022.


Primary competitors are located nationwide and in Canada.
