					?Trade shows play an important role in enhancing the business. Especially, in this era,
when the world has become a global village, it is very important for you to exhibit
your products in a trade show. A million dollar question is "how can you get
maximum benefit from a trade show"? Here are some tips that you can follow to make
your exhibition in a trade show a success:

By doing your research, you can select the best show for business development. You
should consult with your colleagues who have attended the same show before you
make final plans.
You should read the promotional brochures as soon as they arrive. You should try to
take advantage of early-bird discounts on booth space, travel and hotel
accommodations. Try your best to book a booth in a busy aisle near a big corporate
booth because it will attract lots of traffic.

You should read exhibitor's kit carefully, when you receive it. The reason is that you
have to fill out many confusing forms. You have to deal with two or more companies
when you opt for a trade show; one of them is producing the conference and the other
is responsible for renting equipment, phone lines and electrical power.

If your budget does not allow you to buy a custom display, you should be creative and
make one on your own.

By creating a realistic budget; you can handle all the hassle that is going to happen in
a convenient way. You should consider travel expenses, ground transportation,
accommodations, meals, and snacks etc.

You should create a press kit or a press release and make sure that it gets into the
press room. You can distribute it at the press conferences as well. You can ask the
show's press reps to arrange introductions to the reporters who are covering the show.

You should not work in the booth for the whole day. You should walk on the floor to
make contacts with the industry people.

By bringing a supply of chocolate or mints, you can attract the customers to your stall.

high-energy, happy people in your booth.
