ABM: Trade Show, Print Numbers Grow in 2005
Trade show attendance showed a slight increase as well during 2005, growing 1.1 percent over the same time last year, while net square footage was up 9.3 percent.
"Again this speaks to the strength of the business media industry and the power of the combined platforms," said ABM CEO Gordon Hughes in a statement.
T-BIN includes the latest data available on revenue and attendance figures for the tradeshow/exhibitions aspect of business-to-business. The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) aggregates trade show figures. In January 2005, American Business Media augmented its reporting model for magazine advertising sales in industry markets, as relayed through BIN, by examining 22 markets comprised of all business-to-business books tracked by IMS/The Auditor, and PERQ/HCI for healthcare figures.
