In 1970, an adorable chartreuse-colored Muppet named Kermit the Frog told us all that it simply wasn’t easy “bein’ green.” If Kermit were to visit a trade show today, we think he’d be happily surprised. As exhibitors experiment with adding biowalls to their displays, they’re seeing attendees across the country respond with a collective and resounding “ahhhh.”
The corset. Platform shoes. Hammer pants. Instinctually, we all can just feel it when it’s time for something to GO AWAY. So when it comes time to get a shiny new trade show exhibit — whether it’s for a campaign, branding or just because — what exactly do you do with an old one? As it turns out, there are lots of options for trade show booth disposal.
Done correctly, video will engage passersby like nothing else in the exhibitor’s tool box. Once you’ve grabbed their attention, you can use video to educate, inform and even entertain potential business prospects. Here are some tips for creating trade show videos that captivate your audience while sharing your key message—before, during and after the trade show.
For trade show exhibitors, having access to WiFi when you need to conduct business is more of a rule rather than an exception. However, obtaining that access at a trade show can sometimes come with a hefty price tag. Although you may feel as though you have no choice but to pay, with a little research and know-how, you can find a free or low-cost workaround.
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.
Every visitor to your exhibit is a potential customer. Wheelchair-friendly booth design helps to ensure that every attendee can enjoy all aspects of a trade show display, including maneuvering around the booth, viewing and reaching sample products, and accessing tablet or iPad keyboards. Use these six helpful tips to improve wheelchair accessibility in your booth.
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 is 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.
Has your company made plans to exhibit at its very first overseas trade show? Congratulations! Are you scared or anxious? You should be. Dipping your toe into international trade show waters can be as nerve-wracking as it is exciting.
