Abstract： At present, the statistics of China's exhibition industry are not included in the the System of National Accounts (SNA) , the statistical data of the exhibition industry cannot be discussed and analyzed with the various economic units and economic behaviors of the national economy. Therefore, based on the nature and characteristics of the exhibition industry, according to SNA extended accounts theory, defining and supplementing relevant concepts, the added value of the exhibition industry can be calculated comprehensively by combining with the information and data of the exhibition industry surveys including special investigation into exhibition consumption. It can offer possibility for the comparison between the exhibition industry and the other industries' economic behaviors, the international and inter-regional comparison of exhibition economic efficiency, and it would consequentially contribute to the government departments to find out the economic benefits of the exhibition industry, to scientifically and rationally plan the development of the exhibition industry.
