Success: Tips for Pre-show Preparation and Onsite Action Items
Have you decided what your goals are for the show? Is it to write orders, get brand awareness, and make connections? It sounds simple, but having this answer can make your show even more successful.
Contact your customer base telling them you will be at the show and what booth your booth number is.
Marketing and Sponsorships can add that little something extra to help you stand out from the crowd.
Onsite deals – offering a deal or Show Special for any order placed onsite is a great way to have more orders placed onsite in your booth.
Lead Retrieval – investing in a badge scanner will help to keep track of sales leads and their contact info that will also save time and effort in the long run.
Badge/ID – Make sure that you have your badge and ID on you at all times.
Meals – Make sure you have water and snacks.
Need help onsite? – Know your floor manager and GES service executive.
Education and Events –Take advantage of educational seminars as well as events that offer onsite networking opportunities.
Make sure that you follow up with your booth leads within a week of the show. This will help keep your product fresh in their mind, show that you want to do business, and get your leads into the next step of the sales process.
Evaluate the event based on your goals. What worked; what didn't?
