Now that you know where to go- what are you bringing?
If you registered to attend these events, you should register for a booth. Creating a space where you can speak to other attendees and possible partners is extremely important, and first impressions are key.
Strong brands stand out, and strong brands have a better presence at trade shows because they’ve streamlined their logo and have redesigned their website and respective signage materials. Your booth should have the correct signage, business cards, and visual aids in order to bring more friendly faces your way.
Displaying promotional products in your booth will not only draw people in (because everyone loves free stuff!) but also cements your logo in their minds again and again. Attendees will see others walk around with your tote bag, t-shirts, or mugs and be curious to check out your booth.
A game plan to promote your new product is crucial to skyrocket sales. At Mad Mind Studios, we can rebrand your product, market your product, and help you get more traction at your trade show booths. We want you to be successful in your business, from planning a brand strategy to increasing sales. Call us today for a free quote!
