1,441,129 square meters, 41,424 exhibitors, 2,582,931 visitors these are the CENTREX numbers for 2010. Audited statistics of 16 significant exhibition organisers in 7 Central Eastern countries.
Additionally, like in 2009, CENTREX annual statistics CD yearbook also includes again the audited statistics of the members of Polish Chamber of Exhibition Industry (by which cca. 95% of Polish exhibition market is covered). Our yearbook - which has been published for 14 years now - has become very useful for customers of exhibitions; visitors and exhibitors first for realistic picture on the choice of exhibitions and also for the branch professionals (trends, information, analysis etc).
CENTREX in 2011 is continuing activity mainly considering the changes and innovations following intentions in exhibition statistics of UFI.
As the main professional body in Central East Europe, CENTREX is deeply committed in supporting, innovating, communicating, organising, serving the exhibition world, our custumers in the future too.
Concerning to our promotion activity in 2011, our main goals are set to search/analyze the possibilities of use of Social Media and to devote much more emphasize to contact and educate young generation about trade fairs.
Fluctuation of statistics figures year-by-year can mean several things: economic changes, changes in trend of use of marcom tools, know-how, enthusiasm.
We think and wish that these changes be challenges, to like our costumers, to hear them, always to raise the quality and to believe and communicate the real features and values of exhibitions which any other marcom tool does not have.
