The trade show and exhibition season has just started and, as every year, many companies are wondering if there really is a point in exhibiting or even attending such events.
Exhibiting at a trade show has big financial implications for a company, and requires long-term planning, so smaller companies quite often wonder if attending is worthwhile.
It is important to remember that trade shows and exhibitions are a powerful marketing tool – whether you exhibit or just attend. Before the event, make sure you clarify your objectives.
There are many reasons why you should attend:
1. You can gain an overview of an industry
2. Gain knowledge and exposure to new trends
3. Get inspired and creative about the ways you can support your business
4. Meet and evaluate new products and suppliers
5. Learn what competitors are doing
6. Take part in workshops, lectures and seminars
7. Find information to specific issues/ problems
8. Keep in touch with current customers and peers
9. Generate new contacts and leads
10. Enjoy yourself – it is a networking event!
