UFI: exhibition industry sees slower growth in 2019

Paris, 25th July: Last week, UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, released its latest biannual, Global Barometer Survey, designed to assess the state of global exhibition industry. According to the survey, the first half of 2019 is expected to be weaker than 2018 in terms of revenue growth.

In terms of operating profit about 80% of the surveyed companies maintained a strong performance in 2018. However, the outlook for 2019 is expected to be lower primarily due to the expectation of slower global economic growth.
