Making the Most of Your Trade Show Booth 10 January 17 11:34 AM postedby Stephanie Weaver

 Whether you’re a novice or have been working trade shows for decades now, you should know that the margin for error is slim. While it’s an awesome way to market your brand, if you take one misstep, you may end up doing more harm than good. If it’s been a minute since you’ve set up a booth, here are five surefire ways to get the attention your biz deserves.

1.       Take the Time to Select the Right Space

When the time comes to book your booth, consider prime locations that enjoy excellent exposure, including spots in the front or island booths. As soon as you get wind that a trade show in your niche is happening, book a main booth immediately. If the best locations are already booked or out of your price range, try reserving a corner booth, providing you with a user-friendly entrance-and-exit traffic flow.


2.       Stand Out from the Crowd

Don’t blend into the background! Whether you use props or hand out freebies, it’s helpful to have a gimmick at your booth. For example, set up a roulette wheel in your booth. Visitors can spin the wheel, then answer a question about your company to win a prize. This not only helps to engage, but get the news spread that your company is a standout star.


3.       Make It Inviting

Ensure that your booth not only is a standout, but is also attractive and appealing to visitors. Bring in some sort of lighting system to help increase the ambiance. After that, take a quick assessment of the other booths at the show. If the majority seems stiff and reserved, encourage your staff to actively engage visitors. If the booths on either side of you are already doing that, opt for a gentler approach. And never put a long table in front of your booth. Nothing signifies “don’t come in” like a blocked entry.


4.       Train Your Staff

Your staff is the lifeblood of your booth’s success. Remember that attendees walk through a trade show in zombie mode, using their peripheral vision to size up each booth, typically from the center aisle. If they’re approached aggressively or ignored, they’ll most likely leave.


A simple technique to break them out of this living-dead mode is with a non-threatening tactic such as, “Enjoying the show?” Most will stop and chat.


5.       Don’t Skimp on the Swag

Pens and tote bags are used by almost every exhibitor. Consider going above and beyond when it comes to your freebies such as bottled water with your company logo on it, smart phone chargers, and more. The ADVANCE custom promotion shop is full of unique items to hand out at the show.


Remember, location, appearance, and how your staff acts is everything when it comes to trade show success. 

What to Do (and What Not to Do!) at a Trade Show 02 November 16 01:17 PM postedby Stephanie Weaver


Are you planning to exhibit at a trade show in the near future? If so, you’re not alone. Tons of companies find that trade shows are a great way to engage with potential clients, give you a chance to showcase your products and services, and are a robust source of media attention.

But exhibiting your brand at a trade show isn’t all fun and games. As you probably already know, it’s a labor of love, sweat, and money. In your trade show preparation, here is a couple of do’s and don’ts to keep in mind for success.

Trade Show Do’s

Know Exactly What You Want to Accomplish

Knowing your main goals for the show is very important. You are looking to find new clients or concentrate on making actual sales? Once you’ve laid out all of your objectives for the show, you’ll know how to plan properly.

Pre-show Training

Be sure to conduct a pre-show training session with all of your personnel before every show. A general rule of thumb is to write a list of all of your objectives and hand it out to each staff member to ensure everyone knows their role and that you all are on the same page.

Arrive Early and Always be Prepared

Impress upon your employees the criticality of showing up early during the day of the show. You should also have your booth set up before the actual day of the event. But every day means restocking literature, promo items, and general housekeeping. Assign a couple of your staff cleanup duties to guarantee your booth always looks spick and span.

Your staff should familiarize with the products or services you will be showcasing at the event and knows how to speak intelligently about them. You also want to make sure everyone knows their place at the show, including greeters at your booth. Trade-shows can get hectic and if there is no one there to meet prospective clients, they can easily wander away.

 Always be Professional

Keep it professional at all times while at the booth. That means greeting clients, smiling, and knowing everything about the products or services you’re offering that day. Have your staff dress to impress, but allow them to still be comfortable. Trade shows are very long days and you’re going to spend a lot of time on your feet, so stress the importance of wearing comfortable shoes. Ensure everyone eats only during their designated break times and never in the booth. This extends to chewing gum or munching on snacks.

It’s very important to always give your potential clients undivided attention. This means refraining from texting or chatting on the phone during show hours. Take every opportunity to converse with attendees. When somebody stops by your booth, don’t ignore them. Always greet them right away with a smile and answer any questions they might have. Know the ins and outs of your products and talk about the ways in which your business’s services can fulfil their needs. The goal here is not to pitch, but to engage.

When possible, take notes. The devil is in the details at trade shows and every detail matters. Within a day or even within an hour, you could completely forget about a specific conversation and allow a prospective client to slip right through your fingertips.

Trade Show Don’ts

Forget to Watch Your Body Language

Body language makes up 93% of all communication, yet we are continually taking it for granted. When you approach the trade show attendees, you want to be an inviting and open as possible. Never cross your arms or look away from them. Also, do not spend most of the time clustered with the rest of your employees. This will send the message that you aren’t available to talk. All your concentration must be focused on the folks visiting your booth.

Bad Mouth Your Competition

Doing this is definitely off-putting. By spending needless amounts of time trying to convince a potential client of your competitor’s inferiority, you’re projecting insecurity on your part.

Eat, Drink, or Do Anything Appearing to be Unprofessional at the Booth

That also goes for chewing gum, snacking, swearing, or sitting down.

Stay Out Late at Night

While this may sound tempting (especially if you’re in a new city), you need to be on you’re A-game the next morning. The last thing you want is to be sick, exhausted, or hung over the following morning.
