  • Why Your Business Will Benefit From Conventions?
    • More exposure for your brand

  • What are Some of the Most Common Mistakes at Trade Shows?
    • No Goal
    • Irrelevant Giveaways
    • No Pre-show Marketing Campaign
    • Not Following up
  • Not Having a Goal
    • Without knowing this at your trade show displays will make it difficult to measure your success at the event.
    • Examples:
    • How many leads or sales do you want?
    • Are you targeting business professionals or consumers?
  • Irrelevant Giveaways
    • Everyone likes free stuff, but before you shell out the money for fancy items to hand out, ask yourself:
    • Is it related to my industry? Example – hand out small pots with seed packets if you are in the gardening industry.
    • Will people remember my trade show booths ?
    • Is my logo somewhere on the item?
  • No Pre-Show Marketing Campaign
    • Over 70% of attendees know what trade show exhibits they are going to visit before getting to the show.
    • Make their list of must-see convention booths by promoting it through social media, print ads, or word-of-mouth
    • Start marketing your display system at least 1 month prior to the event
  • Not Following up With Leads
    • To be successful, your efforts are not over after the show is done.
    • Send thank-you cards or give leads a call to thank them for their time at the convention.
    • If you send thank-you cards, include your business card so they can easily contact you
