  • Be Outgoing! The team that is willing and able to reach out to potential clients and contacts is the team that will truly benefit from the trade show experience. Don’t be shy- even a simple “good morning” to someone passing by your exhibit can be the start of a valuable conversation.
  • Know Who You’re Talking To. Take the time when you first reach out to passersby to introduce yourself and to get their information as well. This is not only good trade show etiquette, but it can save you from making an accidental sales pitch to a competitor!
  • Take Notes. Though it may feel like a flashback to your school days, taking notes can help you to maximize your trade show experience. Jot down a few key points from your conversations on the backs of business cards to remember the details that might come up in a follow-up call or email.
  • Get Prepped with a Reliable Expo Logistics Service. By leaving issues like storage, set-up, and shipping to a profession expo logistics company, you are free to focus on what matters most for your company at a trade show: networking!
