Many factors contribute to trade show success, including:

  1. Selecting the proper event: Choosing the appropriate event to participate in that meets your strategic and marketing goals in terms of displaying your products/services and enhancing the company’s profile
  2. Designing a marketing strategy to capitalise on trade show participation including most fundamentally having an exhibition stand or booth that stands out from the rest, attracting attention.
  3. Identifying event contracting partners and working with them to ensure that your or your client’s vision and goals for the trade event are realised.

With the launch of EXPO 2020, it is advisable to line up your partners early enough as there is no time to waste in planning and delivering your exhibition. That makes it especially important to partner with reliable and experienced local partners who can guarantee the delivery of quality exhibition stands on time and on spec.
