Maximizing Your Trade Show Presence

It’s show time! If you’re exhibiting or presenting at a trade show, you want to get people to your booth and convert visitors to prospects and ultimately, buyers. All the pre-planning is done; now it’s time to maximize the value of your investment and your time during the event.

– Staff your booth with people-first team members. They should be comfortable delivering your key messaging and sharing (the right) information with visitors about your brand.

– Use interactive displays to draw people in; this can be as simple as a slide show on your laptop.

–  Use your social media channels to post photos of the booth, of your team (nicely posed, please!), of interactions with visitors, or shots of you on stage during a talk or panel discussion.

–  Post video live updates on social media as well – of your seminar, or you and your team doing a live demonstration of your product.

–  Share key takeaways of the convention with your followers. Tag the event’s accounts, team members, and visitors (with their permission) to broaden your reach.

You might meet a great referral source, potential partner/vendor, and of course, prospects who haven’t visited your booth or attended your talk.

Oh – and have fun!
