Learn how to select your next trade show.

Choosing the right trade show for your business an important part of determining how successful your show will be. Here are some tips to help you determine which shows will be the most worthwhile for you.

Set Goals

Before you can decide which show you attend, you have to figure out what your exhibit goals are. To determine what you want to get out of your next trade show, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want to generate more business leads? How many leads are you looking to find?
  • Are you looking to introduce a new product? How many key industry players do you want to see the unveiling?
  • Do you want to secure social media exposure, competitive intelligence, or industry trend data? If so, what specifically do you want to accomplish?
  • How many customers are you looking to engage with?
  • Do you want to see what a major competitor is doing with their display before you invest in one?

Define Your Target Audience

Understanding your audience is also an important part of selecting the right trade show. You should know whom your target audience is, how they make buying decisions, and what goods and services appeal to them. Once you know what audience to appeal to, this will help you narrow down your list of potential shows.

Evaluate Shows

Once you know your objectives and your target audience, you can use this information to decide which shows offer the best prospective for your business. However, this isn’t the only information to consider. You should also review your past performance at shows, travel expenses, and your availability before deciding which shows to attend.

Use these suggestions to help you decide which trade shows will be the best to attend.  Once you choose the right show, make sure that your business has the right display.  For assistance with designing your custom trade show booth, contact the experts at David Torres Productions.  We are ready to make your trade show booth ideas a reality.
