Tips and comments

The biggest trade shows will have close to 1000 exhibitors and over 10,000 attendees. Attending such a trade show will give a kind of advertising which is not available through television or billboards. At trade shows people can physically touch and use the product while your trained marketing people explain the benefits, features etc. Also, this medium allows the prospective customer to ask questions and have them answered immediately. It is very important that the people who staff the booths at a trade show know their products and company extremely well. The staff must know the potential strengths and weaknesses of their product and know what to features are to be highlighted. Poorly trained booth staff can hamper the potential of great product so be sure to train your staff very well.
