To gather data we first have to collect the data from both perspective, when the companies are coming to put
up their product setup in the trade fair and when individuals and business houses are visiting the trade fair.
Since this trade fair is being conducted in central India, we are expecting here visitors mostly form these areas
only. For this purpose we have to find out these information,

We will be targeting metropolitan cities where firms from consumer durables are located so that they can come
in Nagpur to set up their exhibition to create awareness and importance about their products like AC’s,
Refrigerators, Washing Machines and many others. We have the databases of the firms located across Pan
India. Based on the convenience and suitability we will call them to have a display of their products in our
Targeting those firms whose brands are known in the market but not being tapped. Through demonstrations, contests
and workshops in our exhibition, we will help them establish the image and loyalty of customers towards their brand
also such firms will participate in our future events. Based on the response, we would be conducting Trade Fairs in
future in cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore. To fill the gap in tier 2 cities like Nagpur, we will target those firms who
have successfully executedtheir strategy to place their products in the minds of customersby giving demos and excellent
sales support. BizWorld will provide superb platform to have interaction between consumer durable companies and the
Do we have a contact database?
Typically this database contains thousands of potential customers and contacts – but at best a very small
percentage of that database will actually attend the show you are attending. So, how do you get the majority
of the contact database to attend your show?
Where are our customers at an exhibition?
If you don’t know the answer, you are already missing out big time. I have proven to increase sales leads by
75% showing clients where their customers are hiding at events.
Pre-Show Communications with First Timers
Advertise in pre-show publications (Both print and electronic)
We are publishing special issues of the company’s trade journals. It will include all the important sales features
of the exhibit, where it is located, list of companies to be invited to set up booths.
Using internet, we come-up with the directories containing the names of major corporates in the consumer
durable sector. We will promote our exhibition initially over the phone (cold calling). Additionally, we will
provide direct links of the company’s website to let the corporates know the details of the exhibition.

Using internet, we are also designing “Banner”, “Web Logs (blogs)”.
Pre-Show Communications with Long Timers
Personalized direct mail will be sent, which is a highly effective motivator. At least three mails are to be sent
in a day. The buyer’s perception of our company’s presence will increase positively with each mailing we will
Give-aways, or specialty items, creatively used in conjunction with direct mail are also quite effective. We
will send one half of the specialty item to the previous visitors and invite them to pick up the other half during
their visit to the exhibition.
Telemarketing to key prospects and opinion makers. This personal contact will make a very positive impact.
More approaches which can be followed:
Advertisement on Web sites
Print advertising in show publications
Local and Regional edition newspapers
Either printed or electronic, newsletters are another effective way to promote participation in an exhibition. It
should be easy to read and filled with valuable information targeting the current customers and prospects. It
can be in several languages, according to the visitor profile, yet focused on techniques to increase profitability.
A newsletter permits you to position your company as an expert in your industry sector. It is more effective
when sent before the event and post-show, as a final promotion, of what was achieved.
