Are you exhibiting this year? Here are our top tips for exhibiting.

  1. 75% of visitors are there to buy.
  2. Exhibiting means you’re face to face and can interact using all five senses!
  3. It’s cost effective, you can meet endless amounts of potential customers and contacts.
  4. Think about what you want to achieve from exhibiting. Set goals.
  5. Make sure your stand reflects your company and is going to help you reach your targets.
  6. Make sure your branding is consistent.

  9. Ask open questions, encourage people to talk and spot how you can help.
  10. Don’t spend too long talking- speak to as many people as possible.
  11. Focus on the day. Don’t be answering emails or taking calls, make the most of your time there.
