So, you have a trade show scheduled for the fall and you’re wondering just how normal things are going to be. Well, you’re not alone. Those of us in the industry are taking steps to be ready for any of the possible new normals. Our focus at P.O.P. Exhibits Inc. is on turnkey rentals and exhibit sales so what this means for us is that we need to design for safe sales encounters. One example of that is shown here, a line drawing of a Two-Story booth. What you see is a sub-divided upper floor so that you can have multiple small group meetings going on at the same time. Downstairs, anywhere you see two vertical support beams we can install the same clear (or colored) plexiglas you’re seeing in stores for protection. In any case, one of the big advantages of Double Deck Exhibits has always been privacy. Now it just might be separation.
You want to make a splash and to be competitive during your trade show appearance but trade shows are not the Wild West. There are some rules that one must follow if one wishes to make the right impression on potential clients/connections. The following are commonsense booth etiquette tips that we hope will help you make each and every tradeshow appearance a success.
- Set up your booth on time: Imagine the impression you will make on other attendees and potential leads by not setting up your booth on time. It will not be a good one. Leads will get the impression that your business is equally chaotic and disorganized. Start setting up things long before the venue opens its doors.
- Don’t have a messy booth: A well organized, attractive booth is more functional and makes a positive impact on future clients. Our double deck displays are attractive and attention getting and will help you make that vital first impression on customers.
- Avoid eating and drinking in your booth: Another thing that will give an equally bad impression on potential customers is eating in your booth. This gives clients the idea that you are too busy for them and that you take their presence lightly.
- Be considerate of other vendors: Be considerate and remember that there are other vendors present at whatever show you attend. Keep your light and sound presentation at respectable levels and do not interfere with another vendor’s presentation to attendees.
- Learn the prospect’s name: Let the potential customer know that you he/she is the object of your attention buy learning and using his/her name. You could lose a potential sale if he/she believes that you feel they are not important.
- Stay out of other companies’ booths: This is rude, inconsiderate and as a practical matter sets up the opportunity for other vendors to do the same thing to you. Stick to your own display and your own customers.
- Listen more and talk less: Finally, don’t overwhelm your prospects with a bunch of sales talk. Allow them to say what they want to say and actively listen.
In short, key contacts are often made at trade shows. They present an open microphone for your company to make its best case for itself. You should know how to turn off and on that mike. You can also help make that first impression of your company positive one by using a trade show exhibit rental Los Angeles from Pop Exhibits, Inc.
