Think Trade Shows Won’t Benefit Your Business? Think Again

Trade shows are one of the best ways to get your brand and products in front of new markets. Unfortunately, because trade shows are a live event, you’ll only have one chance to make the most of the opportunity. If you’ve been thinking about getting involved in trade shows but weren’t sure if the pros will outweigh the logistical headaches, read on to learn more about the benefits of trade shows.

Trade shows

Trade shows can bring your business to a national audience.

81% of attendees have buying power

While not every attendee will have the decision-making power to invest in your product, a large percentage will have the authority to make deal-making and purchasing decisions. This means that when you go to a trade show, you can count on making face-to-face interactions with someone who could become an important business connection.

Trade shows will put your name on a national stage

Nearly 78 percent of trade show attendees come from over 400 miles away, so you can trust that you will be able to reach new markets and build national brand recognition. This is especially helpful for small companies and startups who want to get in front of a broader audience but don’t have the budget for a national marketing campaign.

Trade shows can be more valuable than other marketing methods

99% of trade show attendees have reported that expos provide a unique benefit that other marketing methods simply cannot rival. Trade shows give you the opportunity to interact one-on-one with your potential clientele and attendees greatly value this experience.
