Tradeshow Guide 2023

16th December 2022 in Trade Shows

Trade shows are held for the purpose of networking and sharing information. T-shirts, mugs and mouse pads can be used to show customers and clients what your company is all about, but this will only get you so far. If you want to take your brand to the next level, invest in promotional products with an immediate purpose. These items can be handed out at tradeshows, conferences or networking events arriving several days before the event. This means that people will already have your company logo on their minds when they first arrive at a tradeshow - not bad for a small investment compared to the value it can bring!

How To Prepare for Your Next Tradeshows

Preparing for tradeshows is a much more complex process than it sounds, but it doesn’t have to be! One of the most important steps is to think about the products you want to promote and order them as soon as possible. We have listed a bunch of our favourite promotional tradeshow products below for you, or head straight over to our Tradeshows and Exhibitions category! We’d also recommend you order some business cards if you haven’t already to hand out to visitors on the day.

You also need to determine your goals, be sure to ask yourself plenty of ‘why’ questions to ensure that a tradeshow is the best option for your company. Why do you need a stall? Is it to showcase or sell your products, or is it to show off your company and raise brand awareness? Why do you think a tradeshow is the best way to do this? Why have you (or will you) chosen a specific tradeshow?
