Establishing Thought Leadership and Engagement

Trade shows offer a unique platform for businesses to showcase their expertise, engage with industry professionals, and establish themselves as thought leaders. One powerful way to achieve these goals is through trade show speaking engagements.

Enhanced Visibility and Credibility

Speaking at a trade show elevates your visibility and credibility within your industry. It positions you as an authority in your field and gives you an opportunity to share your knowledge and insights with a captive audience. By delivering a compelling presentation, you establish yourself as a trusted expert and gain the respect and attention of attendees and fellow exhibitors.

Targeted Audience Engagement

Trade show speaking engagements allow you to connect directly with a targeted audience of professionals who are actively seeking industry-specific information. Unlike other marketing channels, speaking engagements provide a focused environment where you can engage with decision-makers, potential clients, and industry peers. This targeted audience engagement can lead to valuable connections, partnerships, and business opportunities.

When you deliver valuable insights, share innovative ideas, and provide solutions to industry challenges, you establish your brand as a go-to resource in the minds of attendees. This enhances your brand reputation and distinguishes you from competitors, leading to increased brand awareness and recognition.

Networking Opportunities

Trade show speaking engagements open doors to valuable networking opportunities. As a speaker, you have the chance to connect with other industry experts, potential clients, and key influencers. These connections can lead to collaborations, partnerships, and referrals that can further grow your business. Networking during and after your speaking engagement allows you to build relationships and expand your professional network.

Lead Generation and Business Growth

Speaking engagements can be a powerful lead generation tool. By delivering a compelling presentation, you capture the attention of attendees who are interested in your topic and expertise. This attention can lead to increased booth traffic, meaningful conversations, and qualified leads. Additionally, as you establish yourself as a thought leader, attendees are more likely to seek your services or recommend you to others, resulting in potential business growth.

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.
