If you frequently attend trade shows, you know just how important it is to have your display materials safely warehoused and efficiently transported. But trade show success is also about constantly innovating your corporate message and brainstorming new ways to introduce your product to an increasingly competitive market. When you attend a trade show, here is how to make your booth stand out from the crowd.
Tell a Story
The best tradeshow booths rely on a wide range of visual stimuli and marketing tools to convey a powerful message. Rather than focus just on your products, capitalize on brochures, flyers, display tools, and even what you wear to tell a story about your company. Remember, tradeshows usually allow for only seconds-long meetings with new clients. Make a lasting impression, but don’t try to sell on your first meeting.
Engage New Clients
You may have the most innovative product on the market, but trade show attendees need a reason to stop by your booth if you want them to hear all about it. Bring people to your booth by promoting your participation and products on social media and using a game or contest to attract on-site attendees. When people are excited to visit your booth, they will be just as excited to hear about your ideas. Engaging new clients is the first step in both generating leads and forming lasting relationships.
Not every business can afford to have a huge booth or display with flashing lights, but there are plenty of other ways to make your company stand out. If you have a small table, consider adding personal touches and even offering coffee and cookies to draw in new leads.

Today, social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter are for far more than just catching up with friends or tracking down long-lost high school classmates. Nearly every successful business regularly relies on social media to sustain innovative marketing campaigns and brand outreach strategies. If your business is preparing to attend a trade show, get existing and future clients excited about your brand with these three tips for generating trade show buzz.
Promote Your Show on YouTube
If you want to avoid pricey ads but still want to get your story across, YouTube is the perfect place for your company’s pre-tradeshow promotion. Capitalize on your marketing message by creating a video that directly incorporates your Twitter feed. For example, strategize reasons for attendees to visit your booth, and make sure that story gets across in a pre-show YouTube video and is sustained throughout the show with regular Tweets.
Announce Special Contests
One of the best ways to draw visitors in during the trade show itself is to announce special offers and contests beforehand on Twitter, Facebook, and your blog. Beginning weeks or even months before a tradeshow, begin promoting your company’s participation. For extra motivation, consider adding pictures of attendees in front of your colorful display or signage.
Connect on LinkedIn
Most companies today rely on a combination of Facebook and LinkedIn to serve as the public face of their brand. LinkedIn is especially valuable in allowing your business to reach out directly to potential customers. Before a tradeshow, join the show’s relevant groups. After the trade show is complete, find a contact on Facebook or LinkedIn and add a personalized not to stay in touch.

After a trade show, your business has likely gathered new client leads. But when is the best time to follow-up? Today, some exhibitors are sending product-related communications the instant a potential customer steps away from the booth. While some trade show attendees may appreciate such an immediate response, others will simply ignore communications received when away from the office. Your best bet is to send your trade show prospects an email containing your product information immediately after the show is over. After a week has elapsed, send another follow-up communication.

What should you and your employees wear on the show floor? If you are attending a tradeshow, make sure you look the part with the helpful tips in this video.
When you attend a tradeshow, your entire team turns into brand ambassadors. Having a company dress code or uniform is an important marketing tool. If supplying a matching uniform is too pricey, consider asking your employees to wear black pants and a white shirt. You could also supply just a matching scarf for women and a tie for men.
