Good time to exhibit?
ANSWER:  With limited competition and only serious decision-makers present, now may be the best time to participate in a show. Regardless of the economic conditions or competitive landscape, there are many tactics a small business can employ to ensure winning at a consumer/exhibitor show.Because shows generally take place at a single location, have short runs (usually one to three days), and bring together thousands of exhibitors and potential customers, they are a very powerful marketing medium. These shows are designed to let entrepreneurs meet many potential customers face-to-face in a brief period of time inexpensively, leveling the playing field for smaller companies. With creative marketing and booth design, small businesses can actually appear as substantial as much larger corporations. Consumer/exhibitor shows used effectively, takes only a little effort and planning:•  Build company name recognition•  Interact and prequalify prospective clients•  Profit from immediate retail sales•  Promote follow-up promotions & in-store           events•  Book future appointments•  Show off your style•  Generate additional & future store traffic•  Create top of mind & Brand awareness• Launch a new product, service or         company•  Gain credibility & consumer confidence• Create lasting impressions with visual         displays•  Conduct product sampling and consumer          research•  Gain professional credibility by being the          expert•  Showcase products or service in a casual      non-threatening sales environmentThousands of women attend the Women's Fair each year to be entertained and informed.Over 300 businesses will be participating in the 6th annual Women's Fair on Feb. 20-22, 2004. The collective efforts of a mass media campaign will produce a far-reaching, powerful impact that would be cost prohibitive for many companies individually. Last year's attendance exceeded 11,000 and the event continues to grow each year.
