While trade shows give you a great opportunity to meet prospective clients and grant proper face-time with the buyers, it isn’t as easy to attract retailers’ attention when the exhibition halls are swarming with competitors. That is why you must integrate both channels to make the most out of your marketing efforts.
Here are five surefire ways to stand out from the crowd at trade shows, while making sure that you keep the conversation going online.
Start your preparations early and know what you’re up against. Build up your audience’s expectations ahead of the event.
See what marketing options are available at the show. Most events come with awards shows and competitions that provide exposure both at the event and online.
Share the joy
Give away something unusual and create some buzz around your promotions at the show. Don’t forget to engage your online followers too!
Join the celebration
Have fun at the booth and attract lines of people with creative stunts. Go live on social media and invite your social circles to celebrate with you.
Use virtual reality tools, gamification and live videos to ensure your business is the one being talked about.
