Only those that put in the right amount of pre-show efforts, use the best trade show displays for greatest impact and follow through with effective customer interactions succeed. Here are a few basics you can follow to ensure that you make the best of your participation in the trade show.
Even before the trade show date you need to ensure that your participation is publicized well so that the customers that you want to target visit the venue. Advertising on various media is necessary. But you can also send personalized e-mails or call existing customers who may be interested in your other products.
Gearing up for your trade show is also important. Use the right kind of trade show displays to have maximum impact on your audience. Ensure that the display gives the right amount and kind of information to attract visitors into your booth to have a closer look. Avoid using garish visuals that overshadow your product/ business but do not add any value to the marketing exercise.

Train them to ensure that they are well versed in the product showcased and about your business in general.
