How to get down to business at tradeshows
Posted By Marketwired On April 4, 2011 @ 5:39 pm In IR/PR | 1 Comment
Throughout my career I’ve attended more tradeshows than I can count: as an attendee, a service provider and a speaker. After my most recent trip to Blogwell in NYC , I was reminded of a few key points to remember when attending a tradeshow.
We work in a world of tweets, emails and Web meetings where you rarely get a chance to meet your clients and prospects face to face. Tradeshows provide one of the few opportunities for sales reps to physically meet a prospect or existing client. It’s amazing what a difference a handshake makes, even when you live in the world of social media. I keep reminding myself of the old adage: “You have to spend money to make money.” Make sure you know how to take advantage of them to make it worth your money and effort.
