Trade Show Marketing Training

It may be hard to believe, but many exhibitors spend a tremendous amount of money on the designing, building, and transporting their booths to trade shows, as well as related marketing materials.  More importantly, they do little or no pre-show training for their booth staff that is essential to yield the full sales potential an event offers.  Some experts suggest at least a full day of hands-on training with the tradeshow display booth staff be incorporated into the schedule.  The purpose of our Trade Show Marketing seminar is to ensure the booth staff is able to fully capitalize on the investment of the organization.

This seminar is ideally conducted over a full day for the participants to practice what is taught.  The information can be presented in several hours; however, opportunities for the participants to practice the skills taught would be limited.
