Europe Exhibition Market Share & Segmentation
The Europe exhibition market research report includes a detailed segmentation by exhibition type, revenue stream, industry type, and geography. The B2B segment is the largest revenue contributor to the Europe Exhibition market. The segment is growing as B2B exhibitions have emerged as a powerful marketing-tool, information, and sales platforms. They offer presentation instruments for special market segments and initiate profits for exhibitors, visitors, organizers, service providers, and the local economy. It is also growing because several companies prefer this mode to promote their products. Further, low interest in traditional mass media increased consumer awareness, the need for personalization and customization, and the development of new technology-related media are driving the demand for B2B services in Europe.

Per capita, disposable income and consumer confidence levels are the key drivers for the increase in the B2C events and exhibitions market. Europe is a mature market, and it has been historically driven by firm domestic demand. The market, however, reached its stagnation stage. Also, the damage caused by coronavirus may be extremely high as several high-profile and international events have been canceled.

The exhibitor fees segment was the highest revenue contributor in 2019. Space charges matter a lot, and the current trends demonstrate these charges are in the upward direction. Vendors are constantly looking out to portray their products and services in exhibitions.

Sponsorship fees are emerging as one of the tools to showcase expertise, products, and solutions to a highly relevant audience, which is more targeted at a lower cost. Sponsors are adding value to exhibitions by offering free Wi-Fi to users, thereby attracting more audiences. New formats of tradeshows help to develop a sense of camaraderie and a robust community bond that results in an increased level of interaction and a new breed of ideas and thinking in the European market. Such developments will boost revenues in the European market over the next few years.

Consumer technologies specifically offer major business opportunists in the tradeshow market, thereby constituting a major revenue chunk. This sector provides exciting opportunities for innovation on the show floor. From non-traditional booths that allow customers to make the product live and use the data to better target consumers, these shows witness the latest technology due to the diversity and flexibility of products and solutions exhibited. Consumer product retailers are increasingly using mobile devices to engage with customers in exhibitions. They can use mobile tools to receive payments, check inventory, and perform other related purchases. The use of data analytics to target consumers and the demand for diverse and flexible products and solutions are some of the factors contributing to market growth. Moreover, technological transformations across Western Europe are likely to boost demand and generate lucrative business opportunities for vendors. Advances in retail disruption, restructuring, and innovative technologies will transform the consumer retail segment during the forecast period.
