Trade Shows Require Pre-Planning

Many companies are forgoing trade shows and other marketing efforts in light of a bad economy that seems to get worse. Trade shows can be costly to attend – you have to think about the cost of your booth, your promotional materials, staffing your booth, travel, hotel, and incidentals. However, a trade show can be a great way to generate leads, increase sales, and gain exposure in your industry. If you do plan to exhibit at a trade show, there are some things to think about several months in advance. Here is a handy guide to planning for your trade show participation.

In the three to six months before the trade show, make sure you have a clear goal in mind. If you want to make sales on the floor, make sure you are equipped to do so by coming up with a way to accept credit cards, equipping your booth with your product, or having an easy way to sell your service. Making a sale is the honey pot in the trade show world, so if it is your goal to do so, make sure you are prepared.

In that same time period, set a goal for how many contacts you want to make – whether they are sales leads, investors, good industry contacts, or potential employees. It is not good to go into a trade show with no clear goals in mind. Having a plan and executing that plan result in a higher ROI. If you set goals and achieve them, you feel that you’ve accomplished something real, rather than waiting until the end and trying to figure out what you may have accomplished.

Also several months prior to the trade show, schedule some meetings. Schedule lunches with industry leaders, vendor presentations that are pre-set with invitations issued, and meetings with potential customers. Scheduled events and meetings take the guesswork out of who you will impact with your trade show message.

Speaking of the trade show message, make sure you know what your primary message should be. This is what your booth and all your marketing materials will reflect, so to make sure your materials and setup send the right message, figure out what that message is.

Once you’ve done all that, it’s time to get your booth, design your handouts and promotional materials, and plan your trade show exhibit. Book plane tickets and hotel rooms far enough in advance to take advantage of any promotional prices, and make sure you have your staff sorted out so that all your preparation will pay off.

ExhibitDEAL Goes Green With Flooring

Trade show display company starts offering environmentally friendly trade show flooring

Santa Monica, CA – November XX, 2007 – ExhibitDEAl, a leading provider of trade show displays, trade show flooring, and other trade show accessories, is proud to announce the addition of environmentally friendly trade show flooring to their selection of trade show displays and accessories that can be found on their website at:  http:///www.exhibitdeal.com .

In light of so many companies going “Green,” NBC most recently aired episodes of their hit shows The Office and 30 Rock, along with others, featuring story lines centered around environmental awareness, the demand for companies both small and large to be more environmentally aware is on the rise.  With that in mind, ExhibitDEAL has begun to offer a line of environmentally friendly trade show flooring that is of the same quality expected from the industry leading company, but has a lower impact on the environment as a whole.

“We’re very proud of this product,” Mat Kelly, president of ExhibitDEAL said.  “We always want to offer the best product to our customers, but being able to offer trade show flooring that’s environmentally responsible while still being a great addition to a trade show display is a winning situation for us [ExhibitDEAL], our customers, and, most importantly, the environment.”  While Mr. Kelly wouldn’t comment on whether there would be other “green” products featured in ExhibitDEAL’s product list, he was quick to point out that they are doing their part to be more eco-friendly while still offering top level products to their customers.

As the public demands that the companies they deal with be more environmentally aware, companies like ExhibitDEAL, NBC, and Universal Studios are responding by producing shows with environmental themes, broadcasting without the use of any unnecessary lights to conserve electricity, or by offering their clients trade show flooring that is of the same high quality that they’re used to, but without the same impact on the environment.  It’s believed that companies like ExhibitDEAL, NBC, and Universal are just the first in what will more than likely be many companies that offer environmentally friendly products, services, and entertainment to meet the growing demand.
