UFI releases latest edition of Euro Fair Statistics


Report covers 1,826 exhibitions, totalling 18.4 million m² of net space rented in 2022

PARIS – Data now released by UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, identifies the status of the European exhibition market in 14 countries. The certified data is gathered by a network of 11 collaborating industry bodies from across the continent.

“Compared with the 2021 edition, this new edition of the annual Euro Fair Statistics report contains data for a more than double total number of exhibitions, outlining the bounce back of exhibitions after Covid-19. It remains however below the level of 2019, with less countries covered, as some markets are still revamping reporting after the pandemic – an affect we should overcome in next year’s report” says Kai Hattendorf, UFI Managing Director and CEO.

The events examined comprised 438,925 exhibiting companies. Statistics in the report cover 1,826 exhibitions for a total of 18.4 million m² of registered rented space, with a total attendance of 44.4 million registered visitors. UFI estimates that this data covers approximately 47% of the European exhibition market and it includes 183 exhibitions that have earned the ‘UFI Approved Event’ designation.

40% of the exhibitions targeted trade visitors and 27% targeted public visitors, while 33% addressed both groups.

The Euro Fair Statistics 2022 report includes data collected by the following organisations: AEFI (Italy), AFE (Spain), ATFEO (Finland), BDO & Associates (Portugal), CENTREX (Central East Europe), CLC-VECTA (The Netherlands), FEBELUX (Belgium), FKM (Germany), FKM Austria, UNIMEV-OJS (France) and UCCET (Turkey).
