Reasons to Attend
No matter how small your retail business may be, the benefits of attending a trade show sponsored by vendors or industry associations far outweigh any reason not to attend. These conferences have been developed in order to give retail owners, buyers and managers the opportunity to meet existing suppliers, conduct business meetings, network with others in retail and investigate new products.
If you’re currently struggling to operate your business with few to no employees, chances are you may feel like you don’t have the time to attend a trade show. Consider hiring temporary help, asking family to assist or simply plan to close shop for a day in order to attend the trade show.
Once you’ve decided to attend the trade show, you’ll need to plan ahead. To get the most from attending a trade show, you should have a strategy. Knowing what you would like to accomplish before, during, and after the show will help maximize your time. Here are some trade show planning tips:
- Avoid the confusion at the show by pre-registering.
- Have a goal of what you want to accomplish, such as which vendors to visit, what items you need to purchase, what seminars to attend and which new product lines you’d like to see.
- Know your inventory needs before the show. More efficient purchasing will save you money by grouping your orders to take advantage of discounts and special offers, as well as keeping you within budget.
- Set appointments with any vendor you’d like to meet with during the show.
- Plan to bring any employees who would greatly benefit from attending the trade show. Continue reading Maximize Your Trade Show Time
