People attending the Natural Products Expo are seeking innovation and fresh products. It makes sense to release a new product line to reveal at this trade show. You will create a buzz around your booth that will generate interest and sales.
Attendees also enjoy a level of engaging interaction and displays. You could give away free samples to potential customers as a taste of what you are selling. For instance, if you have a new heath drink, make enough samples to last the entire exhibition.
Who should exhibit?
Companies wanting to increase brand recognition and sales should attend the Natural Products Expo. This event can elevate the status of your company and bring it to a new level. A lot of media will be in attendance — covering any new products you are releasing. This helps sell new products that the majority of customers may not know exist.
Keep in mind to have many units on standby for deliveries if required. Attendees typically place small orders at first with new exhibitors to see if they are reliable. Manage to complete the first order on time and you will certainly receive follow up orders.
This event is a great chance to learn about market trends and new technologies that can be utilized to improve your own offerings.
Trade show booth strategy
The success of your visit to the expo will be determined by how well your booth has been organized. It must stand out from other displays and do an excellent job of presenting your products. Here are a few ideas on how to implement your trade show booth for maximum success:
- Branding: Never miss a chance to present your company brand in anything that you do. The booth must be designed so that the products on display can quickly be linked to your company as a brand. Additionally, the brand identity and message must be conveyed to set the right first impression for the potential customer.
- Informative: The booth must inform buyers about your featured products in a straightforward manner. With hundreds of exhibitors on the show floor, you are competing for attention, and simplification is a good idea.
- Social Media: Take advantage of social media opportunities. Consider creating a custom hashtag and encouraging people to use it for a special discount on their first order.
- Free samples: Attendees at trade shows are open-minded and want to try out new things. They will be looking out for free samples, which means you should create a buzz around your booth by providing them. Invest in free samples for the event and you will earn back the investment, and much more in increased interest from potential buyers.
The trade show booth strategies above are just a few simple ideas to get started with. However, for best chances of success, you need to cover all your bases and Evo Exhibits can help you with that. Our process takes a close look at your company and then formulates a strategy to have the best chance of succeeding during the event.
