Four reasons to attend exhibition fairs
Having an exhibition stand offers several benefits for your business. It’s easy to dismiss fairs due to the amount of expenses involved. For many businesses, it can get tedious to measure their ROI since it’s not as simple as checking the cost you’re looking at different stand types. But the reality is that the parameters for measuring your ROI with exhibition stands can also be quite sales-driven and measurable once you know what to look for.
So to facilitate that, here are four reasons attend exhibition fairs.
1. Quality leads
Exhibition fairs are a great chance to dramatically increase your user base in a qualitative manner. The people who would choose to attend industry exhibitions are interested and motivated to look out for products or services that suit their or their company’s needs. Typically, they are also willing to make deals on the spot if it seems worthwhile. By being at your industry’s fair you’re sending a message to every potential customer that you plan on making your mark in the industry and that you’re here to stay. Furthermore, by being there you’re able to shape the perception you project at them.
But remember getting leads doesn’t guarantee instant conversion. You need to put in work after the fair to convert them into clients.
2. Make deals yourself
Just like your customers are attending the fair to meet their business needs, you can do the same. Whether you’re selling a product or a service, no one works in a vacuum.
Consider what your business is missing?
What could be added to your supply chain to improve the efficiently or value of your product or service?
Exhibition fairs connect you with new suppliers and vendors who can help your company grow. Face to face interaction will develop your business relationship far better than a phone call would. It’s true that eventually you’ll meet them when the need truly arises, but by then it’s guaranteed that your competition will get the jump on them. Also, you can forget any possible opportunity to genuinely get know any additional products or services any supplier offers.
3. Understand your industry
To be successful in your business you need to aware of which direction your industry is moving toward. Fairs are more insightful than a monthly industry newsletter or magazine because not only can you directly see the latest developments and trends being discussed live, but there is good chance that you’ll have the opportunity to speak with visitors and prominent guests about it. This will get your gears running, helping you figure out where your business fits and the opportunities that can be capitalized.
4. Gauge your competitors up close
Being aware of your competitors is important and exhibition fairs achieve this purpose better than any kind online research. They allow you to evaluate your competitor’s products, exhibition stand graphics and marketing strategy in real-time. By spending a few hours looking around the fair you’ll acquire insights on why certain strategies work, while others don’t. This will give you a database of ideas to use for your own products and services.
So there you have it four reasons, some are tangible while others are intangible but you can be sure that all of these contribute to your bottom line. So keep them in mind when you plan to hire any exhibition stands.
