Event strategy is an incredibly important tool for every business’s marketing team, and one of the most complex problems these teams must solve is deciding whether to host or sponsor an event. Both tactics have their own benefits–and their own downsides.
Your booth is the crux of your exhibit show. It’s the physical manifestation of your company’s goals, brand, products, and everything your company is trying to communicate to potential clients. If your company depends on the business you acquire through exhibit shows, any damage to your booth risks your bottom line on top of accruing fees for fixing your pieces.
Don’t let a tiny booth at a trade show convince you that your display can’t have a powerful presence. To take full advantage of a small booth, companies must think strategically about their small space and utilize every nook and cranny. All the while, they must ensure that their booth’s appearance follows the current aesthetic trends of appearing accessible, minimal, and roomy.
Are you designing or updating your marketing strategy? If so, you need a way to keep up with the constantly changing marketing landscape and one of the best ways to do that is by adjusting your strategy regularly.
In today’s consumer-focused world, it’s easy to forget that the buyer’s journey is a nuanced path with far more complexities than we realize. Have you ever stopped to wonder what thought processes someone goes through from first hearing about a product or service to finally making the purchase – or not? If you haven’t, we’re going to show you more about the Customer Journey Map and why it’s crucial to your business’s success to understand it.
When companies are faced with the challenge of launching new products and services or even just revitalizing what they’re currently offering, one of the best steps they can take is to create user personas. By doing the research and going through the effort of molding these personas, you’re able to fully know your target audience and test the waters for your product.
So much work goes into conceptualizing, creating, building, and transporting your booth to a trade show. So, it can almost feel unfair when you get to the trade show and realize so many other businesses have put just as much time and effort into their booths, too.
The trade show is a great environment to meet with customers, build anticipation for your products, size-up your competition, and connect more directly with consumers of all shapes and sizes. But once you arrive in the trade show hall and see all the other exhibits of similar size, with similar layouts, and similar colors, suddenly your booth can look like just one more un-special, bland cutout. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to make your trade show booth a unique experience that will drive customers and make sure that you are the life of the trade show.
Every event manager knows that planning the electrical components of your booth is one of the most challenging parts of attending exhibit shows. Not only is it a complex process, but any flaws or miscalculations can cause serious delays and extra costs, potentially ruining your exhibit show experience.
2020 forced the entire globe to adjust to social distancing standards and stay-at-home regulations. The result? Rising popularity in virtual and hybrid events. Experts have been predicting that the trade show market is going to see an uptick in exhibit shows in the 3rd quarter of 2021–but that doesn’t mean virtual events are going to go away.
