Exhibitions and events are valuable for a business as they allow face-to-face communication with suppliers, customers (old & new) and prospective employees – offering opportunities for networking.

Exhibitions enable you to meet the people that matter to your business in one place, including existing customers, new prospects, suppliers, advisers, investors and key figures in your industry. They can also provide a means for proving thought leadership as many exhibitions also combine conferences or seminars.

The Benefits Of Exhibitions

Customers often go to exhibitions prepared to give their time and attention to the sales & marketing presented to them, and are often ready to trade. Because you meet the customers, it is also fairly easy to identify potential timewasters, thus focusing your resources.

Face-to-face meetings allow you to have a meaningful conversation with customers, presenting and demonstrating your products and services, marrying them to your customers’ needs. You can use exhibitions to carry out valuable market research, including evaluating your competitors.

Trade shows (another form of exhibition) attract qualified visitors and many often identify buying responsibility – an audience that can be elusive at other times, and they will have done their homework beforehand.

Consumer shows can be a great way to launch a new business or product – demonstrating your solution/s to a large audience. Press attention and the power of word of mouth means that you can create a real buzz about your product or service.
