This global census covers all exhibition venues with a minimum of 5,000 square metres of gross indoor exhibition space. Regionally, Europe is home to 39 percent of the world’s total venue capacity, followed by the Asia-Pacific region (32 percent) and North America (20 percent).

In terms of size, the number of “mega venues” (those with more than 100,000 square metres of space) continues to grow. This edition of the World Map now counts 73 such venues around the world, accounting for 5 percent of the total market. More than one-third (35 percent) of all venues belong to the medium-size segment, offering between 20,000 and 100,000 square metres. While 60 percent of venues globally have an indoor capacity of between 5,000 and 20,000 square metres.
