Webinar: How to increase booth traffic
Competition for attendees’ time in the expo hall is fierce. The battle is won in the days and weeks leading up to the event. Today, no exhibitor of any size can afford to just show up and hope the right attendees find their exhibit.  Effectively pre-marketing your exhibit is a “must do” to build your brand and get your fair share of qualified booth traffic.

Preeminent tradeshow expert, Jefferson Davis of Competitive Edge, walks you through an eight-step pre-show marketing planning process that will put your company “in the mind” and “on the agenda” of enough of the right A’19 attendees.

Yet, Exhibit Survey’s Tradeshow Trend study reveals an alarming disconnect between exhibitor lead capture and attendee satisfaction with exhibitor follow-up. Failure to effectively manage leads negatively impacts your company’s brand in the marketplace and may be costing your company hundreds of thousands of dollars in unrealized sales revenue.

Webinar: Inside the Mind of the Architect
You’ve probably heard the saying “If you want to sell somebody what they buy, you have to see their world through their eyes“. A’19 Show Management and Informa are excited to announce this all new webinar that will take you on a journey into how architects use tradeshows to build relationships and specify products. The content for this webinar is compiled from a live panel discussion with architects at A’18, AIA’s market research, and Jefferson Davis’ experience conducting over 100 panel discussions with tradeshow attendees.

Remember, it’s not always who has the best products or services who ultimately get specified into architects’ design plans, but often who understands them better, and builds relationships.

This is a webinar that every exhibitor serious about growing their business cannot afford to miss.
