Economic Impact Study



Economic Impact of Exhibitions in the United Kingdom


Direct total impacts



Working with our sister associations, the Association of Event Organisers (AEO)  and the Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) we have compiled an economic impact study defining and measuring the significance of exhibitions to the UK economy.

Using our SASiE data, this new report was created in conjunction with UFI and Oxford Economics and replaces the similar study undertaken in 2011.

The full report breaks down spending and impact into direct, indirect and induced impact, providing a nuanced and complex picture of the exhibition economy.
