INCENTIVES: There is no better vehicle to substantiate a blockbuster incentive than a Trade Show – so why not take advantage of your decision to be an Exhibitor and make your strike!! This is your promotion within a promotion – please be sure to make it legal, profound, and include it in any of your advertising prior to the event. The stipulation should be that the attendee or prospective client must make contact with your firm at the Show, register at your booth and then you can give them ample time to take advantage of whatever your incentive is. The “ample time” is your decision; we suggest 60 to 90 days or more. Remember the incentives are accumulative so this alone makes for enough reason to attend the Show.
SHOW LOGO: Use the Show Logo in your promotions, advertising and Social Media to indentify your firm as being a part of the event. A number of firms intend to use the logo in their ads prior to the show to enhance their success at the event. If you would like the logo for use in a publication, please call us.
