Like most specialty industries, the world of trade show marketing has its own unique language. For exhibitors, knowing how to speak the lingo is critical. Learn these key terms to avoid costly misunderstandings between you and your exhibit design firm, show management representatives, shipping and freight vendors, on-site labor supervisors, and booth staffers.
Whether it’s a local job fair just across town or a big trade show on the other side of the country, every exhibitor with a table top display and an in-line booth longs to compete head-to-head with vendors in much larger exhibit spaces. Learn how to impress with less by incorporating the three Ds into your table top display booth.
Frontline sales managers are under pressure to ensure that every event on the trade show marketing calendar will be staffed by at least two members from the sales team. But if you’ve recently lost a top performer to a competitor or departmental budget cuts, that’s not always possible. The ideal solution? A backup sales team that can flex in during peak periods.
There’s nothing worse than seeing all your hard work go to waste — literally. With all the marketing collateral that’s handed out at trade shows, it’s no surprise that most of it never makes the return trip back to your prospective customer’s corporate office. Save money (and save face) by learning how to deliver marketing materials worth keeping.
