The Benefits of Exhibiting at Tradeshows

Trade shows and events are a great way to market your business, but sometimes deciding whether or not to exhibit can be overwhelming.

So what’s the benefit of exhibiting?

Deciding whether or not to get into trade shows for your business can quickly become an overwhelming thought process. Here are some ways that participating in trade shows and events will help you grow your business:

Networking Opportunities

You can directly access potential customers at events. Meeting prospects face-to-face allows you to build long-term relationships with potential partners. Whether they are existing clients, past customers, or new contacts, everyone visiting your booth is a valuable opportunity for you to meet someone who could use what you offer.

Lead Generation

Exhibiting helps generate leads, making it easier to reach your target audience. By utilizing lead retrieval tools such as Lead Retrieval and Lead Management, you can quickly get contact information from the people who visit your booth or event space. You can use this information to create marketing lists for follow-up campaigns through data mining. This creates a direct connection between your brand and their business—a meaningful relationship that will help drive sales for years to come.

Brand Exposure

As the saying goes, “out of sight, out of mind.” By exhibiting at trade shows and events, you are always in sight whenever someone is in attendance. Your logo will be seen by thousands of attendees throughout the show and on social media that cover it; giving you valuable exposure for your brand!

Expand Your Customer Base

Whether you are a B2B or B2C company, exhibiting at trade shows and events helps grow your customer base by attracting potential buyers worldwide. By interacting with attendees, you can learn more about their needs and how your products or services can help solve their problems. This builds trust in your brand, helping people understand how your business can help them and why they should consider doing business with you. Exhibiting at trade shows and events is a great way to reach new audiences, build relationships, and grow your business. Participating in these events can help you achieve your goals and meet your business objectives, whether you are looking for immediate leads or long-term brand exposure.

What’s the difference between Tier 1, 2, and 3 Producers?

We have no strict guideline for Producer tier levels and allow Producers to decide this level for themselves.  The way we see it, some Producers in our industry are better equipped to handle large projects than others, and some Producers are better equipped to handle smaller projects.  Event Managers are aware of this, and when searching for partners, it helps greatly to understand the type of Producer they’re considering working with.  For example, if a company’s next event is a 10,000 square foot CES custom buildout with a $2 million dollar budget, then consulting with a Tier 3 company that only has four employees and typically handles projects in the $50,000 range may not be the best use of time for the Event Manager or the Producer.  In contrast, if an event calls for a 200 square foot rental exhibit at a small venue, engaging a Producer with hundreds of employees who typically works on $500,000 projects may also not be the best use of time.  Certainly this isn’t always going to be true as many Tier 1 Producers handle smaller accounts and plenty of Tier 3 Producers also have large accounts, but our feeling is that indicating tier levels can greatly help Event Managers and Producers best manage response expectations for new projects.
