In recent years, the difference between these terms has also become increasingly vague, and relying on generic descriptions (for example, entering something similar to “trade shows Ethiopia”) when searching for appropriate event for your company to participate in might not produce the best results. Many Conventions, Conferences or Forums take on features of Trade Shows so that businesses can have their booths on site as well. And vice versa, many large Trade Shows choose to hold a Conference type event at the same time, in addition to usual panel discussions.

In this article, we have prepared 10 Tips that deserve your attention in order to ensure that this expensive and time-consuming activity is well managed and serves its promotional function. Think Sales There are few functions in business as exact and dynamic as personal selling. An organization’s sales team lives and dies by the results of its efforts, which cannot be easily fudged, finessed, or faked. A salesperson obtains the orders required, and he either makes sales targets or doesn’t. By thinking sales, and positively affecting the selling process as a trade show goal, the exhibitor is setting realistic expectations that reside more in the area of an exact science. Armed with the understanding the selling function has many phases, the trade show can shorten the existing selling cycle by delivering qualified prospects to your exhibit sooner rather than later. It can also establish a positive environment where sales and prospects meet face to face to solve problems, add value, and […]
