Trade show booth strategy
You trade show booth must be built for success if you are to meet your sales targets at the exhibition. There will be plenty of competition and attendees will be drawn in a number of different directions at the same time. You have to give them a reason to check out your booth so that you have an opportunity to convert the footfall. Here are some trade show booth strategy ideas to consider:
- Hands-on display: Don’t put your equipment samples behind a piece of glass – attendees have not come to a museum. They want to buy products, and inspection first-hand will be desired. Allow all products to be accessible and even have staff that can provide a demonstration of how they work. A hands-on display will draw in the crowds and that leads to more opportunities to sell.
- Branding: The booth must do a great job of showing your brand in a way that’s going to be memorable. Ideally, the attendee should be able to figure out your brand message just by glancing at the booth. Splash your brand logo and name all over the place so that it sticks in the minds of the audience. This increases the chance that they will recognize you via other portals such as online social media or PPC advertising after the show is over.
- New products: You may have a limited amount of space to work with, which means selecting what products to showcase is key. Go with your flagship products and services that are the most popular among your loyal customers. However, it’s equally important to include new products the marketplace has never seen before. Most attendees expect to see new ideas at an exhibition like this, so don’t disappoint them.
