    • 2. Are you trying to reach the consumers or executives?
  • 5. Where will your audience be?
    • Ask your customers what shows they plan on going to
    • You will definitely get more results if you go to trade shows that your target audience will be at instead of participating at random shows

    • Find out what other exhibitors are doing to draw in a crowd
    • This will also help discover if your target audience will be there
  • 8. Once you find out what trade shows you’ll exhibit at…
    • The next thing you need to figure out is what trade show booth to use
