EAG 2023 is on course to eclipse the physical size of the 2022 show with the latest figures confirming sold floor space is just 84sqm short of the total for 2022 – a month ahead of the doors opening at ExCeL London. EAG Show Director Nicola Lazenby is confident that the sold-out signs for EAG will be posted in the next month. She stated: “To get to this stage of the campaign cycle and have less than 100sqm of space to sell is a positive outcome. These statistics coupled with the 58 percent uptick in the number of operators registering to be part of the EAG experience augurs extremely well for January.”
Additional metrics show that 19 exhibitors have increased their stand space year-on-year with EAG 2023 featuring eight organisations which are new to the show.
