5 Tips for your First Trade Show

Congratulations! You’ve decided to exhibit at your first trade show! You’ve booked the space but now what? Where do you begin?

If you’re going to commit to attending a trade show, you must also invest some time and planning that will make your decision to exhibit a successful one. Start early! The right planning and strategy will be the difference between a good experience and a GREAT one! Here are some simple tips to get you started:

Determine a Trade Show Marketing Budget.

There are many costs you need to consider. Your trade show display, pre-show marketing, exhibit sales force and expenses, and shipping costs just to name a few. Create one total budget, and break it down for each area. Just remember, a successful trade show should reward you with a great ROI.

Enlist a good Trade Show Display Designer & Supplier

They’ll determine what your trade show booth will entail. A reputable specialist will offer you various ideas and cost estimates to ultimately provide you with a great display solution which fits with your budget.

Put a good Trade Show Marketing Plan into place.

What will your focus be at your show and what is your message? What products and services do you offer? Do you  plan to introduce a new product? Your overall corporate plan, your marketing strategy, your products and services, and your trade show display should all work together to promote who you are and what you offer.

Advertise that you are Exhibiting!

Advertising that you’ll be exhibiting at a trade show is a great way to draw attention to your growing and successful business. Send out an email blast with invitations to attend to your current and prospective customers, business partners, and important vendors. Good news travels fast so help create some excitement by using social media to help spread the word as well!

Have a plan to manage your Trade Show Leads.

Determine how qualified leads will be collected at your event, and just as importantly, how you will follow up on them. Let’s face it, growing your business is the main reason you decided to attend and exhibit. Making lasting customers out of qualified sales leads will enable you to capitalize on your investment many times over.

    There is a certain girl, we will call her Sara, who likes to respond to my posts about upcoming shows, usually with regrets about how she would love to come, but cannot find a babysitter for the evening (which some would say is a red flag of it’s own). I almost always tell her, no worries, maybe next time.

    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my
    own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Appreciate it

    Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I’m getting
    fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
