Reed at top of pile for trade event figures

Reed Exhibitions staged the most trade exhibitions in 2005 (including its share in Fresh RM shows) and enticed the greatest number of trade visitors, according to a report by the Association of Event Organisers (AEO).

The AEO 100 charts the top ABC-audited, UK-based exhibitions that are organised by AEO members. As part of a three-year deal, is sponsoring the research until 2008.

Clarion Events topped the consumer chart, with eight shows in the top 100. DMG World Media took first place for attendance at consumer shows, welcoming more than 703,000 visitors in 2005.

DMG was boosted by The Daily Mail Ideal Home Show, which led the chart for consumer shows with nearly 365,000 visitors. Emap's Spring Fair took the accolade for trade exhibitions attendance, having enticed nearly 80,000 people.
