Preparing Your Booth
Best Practices at the Conference
Show up on time! Make sure you know the conference hours.
Make sure you to send members of your organization who are familiar with your featured products. Booth personnel should be personable, engaging, and ready to field any questions about your company’s featured products and solutions.
Have an elevator speech ready to quickly and accurately communicate your company's mission and branding. Focus on what your organizational goals are, followed by what goods, services, and/or solutions your company can offer.
Be present, focused, and engaged - this is one of your best chances to generate new business this year, with attendees who are looking to buy your solutions!
Keep your booth organized; a messy booth seems uninviting and reflects poorly on your organization.
Don't forget to have your shipping labels ready.
