  • Be aware of deadlines and schedules. It is more than likely that you will have established your plans for a trade show months in advance of the show date itself. If the event staff has given you a specific registration deadline or similar times to keep in mind, make sure that you adhere to these so that the rest of your plans do not get derailed.
  • Hold a company meeting before the trade show. Before your team heads out to the site of the trade show, hold a meeting to review your plans. Make sure that everyone knows what his or her specific job will be once you arrive; this will cut down on any confusion or miscommunication.
  • Double-check your travel plans. If you are traveling out of town for your trade show, give yourself some peace of mind and call to verify your flight information. You can also verify with your hotel or other lodgings to ensure that your reservations are in place.
  • Don’t overlook the details. Small yet vitally important details can often get overlooked in the hustle and bustle surrounding a trade show. Set up your away messages for voicemail and email before leaving your office space, make sure to pack plenty of business cards to distribute, and coordinate with your colleagues on arrival plans to make your trade show experience a successful one.
  • Have your expo logistics taken care of! The most important thing on your trade show checklist? Taking care of the logistics! With a comprehensive service like AFP Expo provides, all of your shipping, set-up, and storage needs will be taken care of, leaving you free to focus on the trade show.
