Top Tips for Successful Exhibiting

INTRODUCE YOURSELF

Before the show opens, make a point of introducing yourself to the business owners around you. Not only will they be more than happy to keep an eye on your stand when you duck off to the loo, they can also send visitors your way where relevant!

 

IDENTIFY YOUR STAND

Make sure that visitors can identify who you are from a distance – put up a large banner with your business name and/or logo on it. This can be a pull-up, teardrop or PVC banner. Visitors are more likely to walk past your stand if it isn’t obvious what you sell. A banner can be used again and again at different events and is well worth the investment.

 

KEEP YOUR STAND UNCLUTTERED

Visitors can be put off by a super busy looking stand. If it is very obvious what you sell and you are simply displaying all the different varieties of your product then visitors will be drawn in. If the stand looks cluttered with all sorts of different products and/ or flyers, then visitors will move on quickly as their brain cannot process all the detail within those first few seconds of looking at your stand.

 

BUSINESS CARDS

Contrary to popular belief, these are still very valuable. Make sure you have plenty of business cards prominently displayed at the front of your stand. This allows people to quickly take your details with them to check out later, especially if you are engaged in conversation with another person.

 

AVOID SITTING

If at all possible, do not sit down behind your display. This can make you appear disinterested and not engaged with potential customers/clients. Other than a quick post on social media, DO NOT spend time on your phone during the show. Worse than sitting down, this can quickly put visitors off.

 

EATING AND DRINKING

Avoid eating at your stand. If it’s time for a quick bite at lunch time, take turns with your co-exhibitor to head to the designated exhibitor rest area to eat. Alternatively, ask your neighbour to keep an eye on your stand and have lots of business cards on hand for them to hand out if visitors are interested in your business. Similarly with drink bottles, pick a quiet moment and briefly turn away to drink.

 

COMPETITIONS

Find a way to attract visitors to your stand in a fun way. You might have a catch phrase to use on passing visitors, or a large sign advising them of a competition you are running. The more interactive you stand, the more engagement you are likely to have. And the more memorable you will be!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I park?

You may park in the area outside the rink, but please move your car to the designated car parking area once you have moved everything into the building. This leaves the prime parking space free for our valuable visitors. 

 

When can I set up?

Set-up can take place either on Saturday, 21 May from 3pm - 5pm, or on Sunday, 22 May from 9am. All exhibitors must be set up and ready to trade by 10.45am. 

Can I have power to my site on the day?
All power sites have been allocated during bookings and last minute add-ons are not available.
