The International Federation of Exhibition & Event Services – or IFES as most of us know it – has released the results of a survey it ran among its members on the impact their businesses have felt due to COVID-19.

The survey ran from 11 – 25 September 2020, and a total of 86 IFES members responded to the detailed questionnaire. The results have been made publicly available, and the full report can be downloaded here (4.5MB).

Interestingly, Africa seems to have had the most conservative response to the pandemic, with a total shut down of exhibitions in 2020 and the most hygiene measures being put in place to stem the spread of the virus.
