Latest market trends in the US tradeshow industry

AMR forecasts continued growth and opportunity

The US tradeshow market is the world’s largest and is forecast to grow at a strong rate through 2018. Large acquisitions have seen organizer valuations rise, most recently UBM’s acquisition of Advanstar and Informa’s acquisition of Hanley Wood. While the industry is clearly attractive, large platforms are valued very high, which means investors may need to consider smaller buy and build strategies to access this sector. Nevertheless, the market remains highly fragmented with opportunities to drive value through strategic and operational levers
