Who Would Trade Away These Trade Show Statistics?

Most business owners have an inkling of the boost attending trade shows can give their companies, but they do not have the specific numbers to back it up. Luckily, the big-time benefits of trade shows can be quantified and have been in a recent study! Read on to learn more about the impressive trade show statistics that prove your business should be investing in an expo experience.

           trade-show-statistics     Do all trade show attendees have buying authority? Not necessarily all, but a huge chunk- 81 percent!- of attendees are authorized to make purchasing and deal-making decisions. That means that when you attend a trade show, you are almost always going to be speaking face-to-face with someone who is capable of creating a significant connection with your company then and there.

Do trade shows give you a national profile? With nearly 78 percent of trade show attendees visiting from over 400 miles away, you certainly will get your company’s name out there on a country-wide scale! This can be an especially beneficial thing for startups and smaller companies to take advantage of.

Do trade shows impress more than other marketing methods? This is a trade show statistic you are sure to love: 99 percent of attendees reported that the unique value their trade show experience brought them was something they did not find with other methods of business marketing. It’s understandable, too; trade shows put you right in front of your potential clientele, giving you the real-time opportunity to explain the work your company does.

Taking advantage of the many benefits of a trade show is one thing; getting to one is another. It is important when planning your company’s trade show experience to deal with a  company that knows what it’s doing when it comes to the logistics of a show.
