Critical Show Tips

The most important thing to have when attending any show, especially your first, is a positive attitude. Here are just a few tips:

  • Give yourself enough time to execute an effective exhibit: Many first-time exhibitors’ sign up for shows too close to show time. Ideally, you should sign up at least six months before the show to give yourself time to plan and pre-pare for a successful show experience.
  • Use the Pre-Show Checklist as a guide to be sure all important action items are completed in a timely manner.
  • Lay a solid foundation for success: Many exhibitors rent space; send the exhibit, people, products and literature; and hope things work out. Successful exhibitors ask this question before the show: “At closing time, and within 90 to 180 days after the show, how we will know we were successful?” By determining in advance the specific outcomes they desire, they can create plans for achieving those outcomes.
  • Read your exhibitor service manual carefully: This critical tool, which goes mostly unused, will answer many of your questions and direct you to resources you need to execute your exhibit. A key piece of information you’ll find in this manual is order-deadline dates’ missing them can increase your costs by 40% or more.
  • Don’t throw a party without inviting guests: Only 15% of exhibitors use targeted pre-show marketing to identify and attract the right people to their exhibit. Be one of the 15%. The competition for an attendee’s time is fierce. Successful exhibitors get on their target attendee’s “short” list before the show opens.
  • Prepare to start the real work when the show closes: Exhibition-industry research finds that only 13% of leads are followed up. This costs exhibitors hundreds of millions of dollars in unrealized business. Whatever you get at the show in terms of orders is just the tip of the iceberg. For most companies, the real product of a tradeshow is qualified leads.
  • Don’t judge a show from one attempt: it is virtually impossible to meet all of your prospective clients at one event. If the attendees at a show match your customer profile, you should commit to at least three consecutive exhibits before making any judgment on the show’s value to your company. If you have brought a good-quality product or service to the right show and you are doing all the right things, there is no way you can fail.
