CEIR (Center for Exhibition Industry Research.) states that 1.16 lacs trade show participants were prohibited in 2010 from attending American corporate & business events due to visa-related matters. The visa approval process of the U.S. which in some cases stretches many a times even beyond six months is to be blamed to a considerable degree for this gap.

The major drop in foreign attendance in U.S. shows is due to the increased security involving foreign travelers following September 2011attack. With the anticipation that travel to America would improve, President Obama approved proposed reforms in U.S. visa processing services earlier this year and visa application centers have increased staff sizes by the U.S. State Department. It is welcome news for those who wish to be present at such events. These U.S. visa reforms will multiply turnout at U.S. trade shows which means added revenue for presenting enterprises. In the 2nd half of the last decade recession decelerated U.S. trade show turnout numbers and even at the arrival of 2013, industry witness reluctance to pronounce that business officers will rapidly top up marketing budgets.

2013 Global Meetings Forecast by American Express’ Meetings and Events division states that rate of spending by cost-conscious marketing divisions will remain consistent at current levels.

Issa Jouaneh from American Express said – “To maximize return on their investment, companies are highly focused on gaining clarity around spending, ensuring transparency as to why their organizations are holding meetings and who is attending them, and measuring the degree to which their meetings objectives have been achieved.”
