No matter how professional a show master is, there are certain mistakes that some often make. Check out the common trade show mistakes that often throw one in the doldrums.

  1. Cautious before you want to dive big.

Going big is everyone’s dream and they all strive their best to give the best to the customers that they have such that they can further their business prospect with the organization and thus catch up on others too. What most business houses do is to participate in several trade shows each year which requires ample finance also. In such a case, it would do good if a business house participates in one or two of such shows whereby they would be able to maximize leads and generate business.

  1. Caution before you go too small.

While larger exhibits involve more money, however, one should be cautious that they don’t go too simple and small on display and as a consequence aren’t able to generate any lead. What steps up as important considerations here are attractive graphics which lend to a good presentation, multiple kiosks, informative product displays as well as overhead advertisements. Make sure you utilize each square area of what you are paying.

  1. Need for specific goals.

A company that indulges in a trade show should be clear of what it wants to achieve. What most of these stall holders say is ‘achieve lead’ or ‘generate lead’. But, is this enough? Does this really increase the business? Isn’t real conversion required to sustain and increase one’s business? It is here that a knowledgeable exhibit professional makes the difference and helps smart trade.

  1. Well designed graphics.

The graphics these exhibits use to attract attention should be clear and straightforward and not one that muddles up and confuses an onlooker. Also, it should be creative and have all the necessary information and nothing irrelevant.

  1. Are freebies attractive?

We all love a free gift that we get at times with certain purchases. But, does give away anything and everything ranging from a pen to a plastic water bottle serves the purpose? Won’t the credibility of the exhibit be questioned on such freebies and gifts? Think, it can generate a lead in the form of contact numbers or addresses but nothing more than that.

  1. Untrained booth professionals.

It is very important that an entrepreneur trains his booth workers properly about all the courses or items on the booth such that their performance goes down well with the customers and there is a true conversion. It is, but imperative, that they are the face and mind of your business that moment.
