HIGHLY TARGETED LEADS--EAGER BUYERS!
The trade show environment is unlike all others. The leg work is done for you – a large crowd of highly targeted buyers are under one roof!  Attendees are actively looking to buy the right products for their needs. Your team simply needs to highlight the positive aspects of your products effectively and close the sale. Refer to these tips on how to sell at a trade show:
  • Setup your trade show booth around your flagship products and highlight the benefits to the consumer. Be ready to talk and engage passersby! 
  • Get the customers information — do not just give your business card.  
  • For deals that you cannot close on the spot, set up an appointment after the event for another chance to persuade the lead.
RAISE BRAND AWARENESS
Brand awareness is critical in any industry.  This is a a great opportunity to raise brand awareness among industry professionals and the community!  Start-ups can have a particularly difficult time getting recognition in the industry.  Here are some tips to increase your brand awareness:  
Create eye-catching, professional graphics that engage the audience. Place your brand name, logo, and message strategically throughout the space for maximum impact.  Put your brand on a fun product that shoppers will keep.  Ice scrapers, pens, calendars–the list goes on and on.  Be creative.  Get noticed.  
FORM BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS
The best way to build client relations (or destroy them) is through word-of-mouth!  Alliances with other industry related companies and business owners in the County can help you touch other markets.  People buy people from people they like. At a trade show you have face-to-face meetings with potential partners and clients.
