3 Ways to Improve Industry Event Engagement

Everyone knows the trade shows and other industry events provide a great opportunity for you to engage with potential customers face-to-face and to promote your brand in front of hundreds if not thousands of onlookers.

People choose to attend industry events already motivated to listen to your pitch, consider your products and services, and even bring motivation to buy on the spot. But there are also many other brands in your niche vying for the attention of trade show attendees, which is why we’ve put together a list of the 3 most important considerations you need to make before you exhibit at a tradeshow or similar industry event.

  1. Build the Right Booth

Careful branding is necessary for business success and to help you master your niche, and the right custom display fixtures tell the world that you should be taken seriously and that you are worth paying attention to.

On the trade show floor, the attention of attendees is pulled in every direction. A well-designed trade show booth can help your brand create a lasting impression that will stay in the minds of prospective customers even after the show has finished.

  1. Brand Ambassadors Help Promote Your Business

Any expert will tell you that consumers prefer to engage person-to-person rather than with a faceless brand. It’s been proven that trade show attendees will listen to other people’s opinions and that those opinions dramatically affect how they spend their time and energy on the floor.

This is why brand ambassadors are such a powerful tool to use in an industry. Emcees, DJs, celebrities, food and beverage specialists, and other brand staff are able to form a personal connection with consumers while also displaying your brand, products, and services.

Professional, well groomed, charismatic brand ambassadors will bring more attention to your booth, and brand ambassadors provide everything from samples to entertainment to well-informed pitches about your company and its services.

  1. Reserve a Room at the Event

Many people skip this important logistical detail without realizing how much it can improve its ability to sell products or service. Trade shows and other industry events are very noisy and distracting, and you may not be able to engage with a potential customer before they become distracted.

Booking a separate room at your next event will allow you to answer questions more thoroughly, limit distractions, and close deals in a quiet space with privacy.

A separate room will give you a chance to communicate one-on-one with people who are truly interested in your product or service giving them the attention they need. While the trade show floor is the perfect place to grab attention initially, the quiet intimate space of a reserved room is the better closer.
