June 1, 2016
Used properly, a trade show can bring a big boost in your brand identity, generate leads, help you find new prospective partnerships, and more. They’re incredible tools, and that’s a key reason that they continue to gain popularity in marketing strategies around the world.
That being said, even the most experienced trade show veteran can pull additional value from their trade show appearance. Your company is making a major investment when you head to a trade show, and it’s important that you get the most ROI from your time and money. So what can you do to improve this? Here are a few easy tips that can help you get more value from your trade show experience.
Have a Clear Vision – Set up your goals before you even start preparing for the event. Consider what it is that you’re looking to get from the trade show. Do you want to market and develop new leads? Do you want to build overall brand awareness? Once you know what it is that you’re trying to accomplish, you can design the trade show experience around those goals.
Enhance Your Knowledge – Like it or not, your visitors likely won’t just smile and nod and go on their way. They’re going to have questions about your business, your services, or your products. As such, being ready with good answers is vital to your company’s success. Be sure you think about what people are likely to ask so you can engage on a higher level.
Design Your Exhibit – Really think about your company brand, culture, goals, and vision here. You want to be represented by an exhibit that actually promotes your entire brand and that still captures the attention and the imagination of participants who see it. Integrate technology, use the right colors, and focus on the key messages of your business in order to get more valuable time from participants.
Interact – Above all else, you need to create a memorable experience for your participants. If you’ll interact with them and engage through direct contact, technology, and exhibit elements, you should be able to create an experience that will actually stay with them after they leave.
Getting the most from your time at a trade show is vital, and the steps above can make it much easier to do just that. Our team is ready to help you create the right exhibit for your needs, so contact Lighthouse Exhibit before your next trade show to see what we can do for you.
