Trade Show Tips: How to Stand Out in a Crowd
Speakers: Jenai May, Rachel Reber and Danielle Rose
How do you get your products and service to stand out when doing an event? This panel discussion, led by promotional and graphics experts, will give you ideas on how to bring in customers with tips on your display, signage and social media promotions. Increase your sales at the WESO Expo, Greeters, craft shows, and other events. You’ll pick up new tips and be able to share your successes!
Remember to sign up for a vendor table at the WESO Entrepreneur Expo, too. This program will be a great lead-in for getting the most from the Expo.
Rachel Reber will share with you some of her simple inexpensive trade-show booth design ideas that have helped her make sales, gain new clients, and stand out in a crowd at Trade Shows and Holiday Markets. Her simple low-cost displays will give you ideas of how to make your display POP whether you are selling a product or a service. Rachel will also reveal some simple do’s and don’ts that you won’t want to miss out on!
Danielle Rose will challenge us to take our displays to the next level. Let Danielle tempt you with tantalizing options to show off your brand, your offerings, and more—for less money than you'd think! Explore the pros and cons of custom banners, drapes, and displays—and where to place them—and gain insight on what makes an eye-catching design.
Jenai May will discuss how you can draw additional visitors to the Expo where they can meet you in person with the help of social media. In this segment, Jenai will discuss using Facebook (under the new rules!), LinkedIn, and Meetup to entice more people to step away from their screens and into the Expo. We’ll explore several options, including event creation, post promotion, Facebook Live, and more!
