Despite the efforts of the Association of Event Organisers, parts of the UK exhibition industry continue to operate on the basis of 'Don't confuse me with the facts'. As a result, we'd like to stress that the accuracy of such lists depends on show organisers being prepared to supply accurate and verified information. Comments from organisers who believe their events are rated erroneously, or who would like to submit more up-to-date information, are welcome. The total aggregate turnover of the events listed here is estimated to be £380m. This doesn't represent annual turnover, as many events are biennial and some are biannual. Overall, industry figures suggest these 200 events represent 80 per cent plus of all exhibition turnover at the organiser level. Note that this in no way accounts for the full turnover of recognised exhibitions - at the most obvious level catering, parking and stand building revenues rarely go to the organiser and are not included here. But what the top 200 does demonstrate is the scope and scale of today's UK exhibition make-up. - NB. The information here has been compiled by Phil Soar in partnership with the Society of Events and Exhibition Research (SEER). Those interested in submitting feedback on the Top 200 should email EN's editor: ncameron@mashmedia.netHow total industry turnover stacks up top 2549%26-5016%101-1256%151-1753%51-7511%76-1008%126-1505%176-2002%according to this report, the largest 25 shows in the UK are responsible for nearly half of the total revenue generated by the top 200 exhibitions. the last 25 make up just 2%.
