While there is no doubt that attending trade shows is good for business, getting the most out of the experience can be tricky. The more time you dedicate to planning, the more successful the show will be for your bottom line. Today’s shows are massive and can be overwhelming. So much to do – so little time. HDAW is a case in point. Several organizations under one roof. 3 Days. 3,000 + attendees. 500 + exhibitors.  Speakers, seminars and demonstrations. Where do you start? – The key is to Plan Ahead.

Showing up to a trade show of this size without a strategy could be a waste of time and money. Before anything else, you need to define your goals. What do you and your company hope to achieve? Are you there to generate sales, build new relationships, research the competition, or learn about the latest trends and innovations? None of your objectives will be realized without a clear and SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timely) plan to identify what you can do and who you should meet to achieve your goals. The more time you dedicate to planning, the more successful the show will be for your bottom line. A panel of experienced individuals (TBA) and moderated by Warren Stewart will give you tips on navigating tradeshows to grow your business.
