This is the most important quality of all, as without this you don’t have much of a chance of getting anybody’s attention in the first place. Without anyone’s attention, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to sell to them, or that they will remember your brand after they have gone. You need to be eye-catching and bold, and not afraid to stand out as much as possible. To achieve this, it’s all about making your stand look the part. Make sure to use professional banners from the likes of www.selbys.net, so that your stand has that professional and finished look. And don’t be afraid to speak to passers-by; this is much better than forever waiting for people to talk to you.
Polite & Welcoming Air
Something which is just as important as the quality of the stand itself is the attitude of you, or whoever you are putting in charge of it. Ultimately, it is the people that the potential clients will remember, so they are an important part of the whole operation. Put simply: the stand itself is what draws attention in, and the person at the stand is what keeps the attention there and then makes the sales, makes the connections, and so on. So ensure that a polite and welcoming air is the natural way at your stand, and also make sure to be as bold as possible in reaching out and saying hello to everyone you can.

Offering tasters of your products is the number one best way to give an example of what you do as a business. At the end of the day, people are much more likely to get bored with a description of your services or products, but if you can offer them something real to play around with, this is likely to be much more valuable, and to stay with them for much longer. So make sure your stand has tons of product examples for people to use and ask questions about. The more interested people are in these, the better. With any luck, you will be drawing in more and more clients and customers in no time at all. And then it’s just a matter of preparing for your next trade show.
