Why Should You Attend Trade Shows?

With Suncoast’s Trade Show coming up Thursday, May 21 … here is exactly why trade shows are beneficial to you.

There are many advantages to attending trade shows, whether you are a retailer or wholesaler. Despite any travel expenses and/or registration fees you may encounter when attending a show, the value more than outweighs the cost. Trade shows allow you to gain valuable experience, knowledge, product exposure, and more.

Trade shows are a great way to keep up with industry trends, new products and resources that are available to your business. Walking the trade show floor can easily tell you what you need to implement in your marketing campaign and what you might need to put away for a while. Shows allow you to see the best of the best and what’s hot from many different suppliers …  it’s like walking through hundreds of catalogs and interacting with an expert from each to help you find what is best for you.

Physically seeing, touching and comparing items at a show is a great way to stimulate new and creative ideas that will help promote your business. Not only that, it is the best way to make a relationship with vendors you can trust and gain business from who you might not have had the chance to outside of the show.

Trade shows are also a great way to generate leads and make relationships with potential customers. Collect business cards and directory contacts to add to your database of contacts. Trade shows are powerful educational tools and networking events that exposes you to new people, new businesses and new creative ways to enhance and promote your business.

Not only can you network and make strong relationships with vendors, you will get answers right away since communication is immediate and easy.

And do not forget … trade shows are also fun! Having fun gives you the energy and motivation to work and better your business. Value each opportunity to attend a trade show, and sign up today! Suncoast Marketing’s “Make a Splash!” Trade Show is only three weeks away!
