Why Trade Show Planning Will Save You Time and Money

In our industry we have had the luxury of supporting clients through a number of unique and exciting business executions over the years and we have helped thousands of companies develop unique and memorable promotional items specifically for trade shows.  

Too often though, many of our clients remember just a few weeks before that they made a commitment to a trade show or a presentation.  This creates a mad scramble to get something designed and developed to hand out or use to support the trade show team attending the show. This results in unnecessary stress and additional costs due to processing a rush order.  

Strategies that Work – Planning Leads to More Sales and Less Stress

Having a proper trade show promotion strategy, developed well in advance, will allow you time to really develop your trade show objectives. It will also give you the time to find those unique promotional items that the trade show team will be excited about handing out and help make that interaction with your trade show contacts and customers even more effective and memorable. 

Over the years, we have found that what works best is to look at trade show plans as part of your marketing plan, at a point in time or at the beginning of each year.  This allows you the time to consider how promotional items can support your corporate mission, your branding, trade show objectives and budget considerations.
