“There is a challenge around financial forecasting. But here is a question I’m sure everyone asks themselves at one point: are the fundamentals of exhibitions and congresses going to continue? What’s patently clear is that the answer is ‘yes.’ They’ve been running for 800 years. They’ve survived pestilence, floods, pandemics and wars. And they will continue to do so in the future because they add value”
Jeremy Rees, CEO, ExCeL London
