Barter Industry Statistical Study Underway
Trade Exchanges And Corporate Barter Companies Urged To Cooperate With New Project
A group of interested barter industry members are meeting in Denver on June 27 to develop a methodology for computing industry statistics. (If interested in attending call Krista Vardabash at 716-424-2960.)
Information on the industry's growth and size is important to ascertain as the financial industry moves forward to embrace the commercial barter industry. Additionally, the media continually looks for such data when reporting on the industry.
Prior to the Denver meeting a survey is being disseminated industry-wide. If your barter company hasn't yet received a copy, please e-mail Krista@irta.net as soon as possible. The information compiled prior to June 22 will be a valuable assist at the upcoming Denver meeting.
This industry-wide effort is supported by the International Reciprocal Trade Association (IRTA), Crump Barter Services, and BarterNews magazine. It's expected that NATE (National Association of Trade Exchanges) will become involved as well.
