Tradeshows Offer Branding and Marketing Opportunities

Tradeshows offer branding and marketing opportunities, potentially allowing your company to significantly increase sales in a short amount of time. Because of the major impact these events can provide, it is important to do everything necessary to make your experience as successful and beneficial as possible. Tradeshows take major planning, but one thing to emphasize is the trade show exhibit.
In planning your trade show booth design, you will want to put the time and effort into making a significant display with a powerful message.  To make the most of your booth, use the following tips:
       Recognize the significant impact a display can have. Carefully consider what message you want to convey, how you want your brand to be portrayed, what purpose you want the display to serve, who you want to market to, and other objectives you may have for the convention.
       As you start to plan your exhibit analyze costs, and examine benefits to determine how to get the most impact while still staying on budget. One alternative for funding such a setup is to look for a sponsor, which can give you a bigger budget for your design.
       When you are designing a tradeshow display it can be a complicated process. Take advantage of consulting services available from the company providing your exhibit and let them help you plan, strategize, and execute your trade show booth design ideas in order to optimize the potential impact.
       Consider the value of promotion, before and during and after the event, in order to help maximize the publicity and attention your company is able to get.
       Once you have determined conceptual requirements, consider which physical elements will best achieve your event goals. Will you need a large exhibit or a small one? How willgraphics, presentation components, and structure work together? How will your elements attract potential customers and then keep them interested after their approach?
       Once you know what your specific event goals are and have your booth worked out, consider what you want to actually happen during the event and who will get the job done. An effective appealing design is not enough - make sure your staff is trained and motivated to be the driving force that makes your layout rise to the top.
       With larger scale exhibits consider renting instead of purchasing, especially if a display of this size is not one you will use on a continual basis.
Your tradeshow display needs to stand out from the crowd in order for you to be noticed. With the tips presented here, you can make sure your trade show booth not only makes a statement but that really steals the show.


Get the Most from Your Trade Show – Maximize Your Exposure

Trade shows are great places to market your product and services but you are only one of many at the venue so you need to maximize your exposure.

Use a Blog to Enhance Your Trade Show Promotional Activity

Pre-trade show marketing should include providing information on what you will be doing on the day and where to find you; the idea is to raise attendee awareness before they visit the show.  Why bother – the attendees will all be there in any event, so why do you need to focus on pre-trade show promotion in any event?

Optimizing Trade Show Performance with Staffing Strategies

Your trade show display staff needs to be carefully selected and trained in strategies and techniques for use on the day, and this means you need to formulate protocols for dealing with logistics through to staff attire and decorum on the booth, through to how to manage attendee/prospects.  Frequently, companies find that they need to recruit temporary staff into to handle the exhibition on the day, but you still need to ensure everyone knows their responsibilities and duties.

Factors in Selecting a Trade Show Venue

Not all trade shows are made equal – some are simply better by virtue of being better managed, by being in a better location, by having a greater following and penetration in the minds of attendees and other exhibitors, while some are simply not appropriate for your line of business and others are a perfect fit.  How do you choose which trade show venue is the one which is right for you?
