As the number of registered participants grows with each year’s events, exhibitors and sponsors are opportune to reach broader demography with their products and services. The first ever edition of the business fair was strictly a trade fair for the exhibition of products and services, and the response was met with joy. That anticipation has built over the course of the years with attendance ranging from 500 in 2011 to over 7000 as at 2016. This year, we intend to exceed 10,000 attendees thereby giving exhibitors and sponsors an opportunity to leave with substantial profits.
Due to the sheer number of persons and companies present, it is imperative to do all you can to secure a spot and make your business stand out during the event. Here are a few suggestions:
- You can use LED lights or select certain colours to make your booth colourful and attractive.
- You can also have a video tutorial on your products to show how they function. This idea is great if you have a display screen if not, use a Laptop or an iPad.
- Make sure the percentage discount you are offering on your product/service is visible a mile away.
- Wear a branded outfit. It keeps the name of your brand engrained in people’s mind a second longer before and after they approach your booth.
- Interact with people when they stop by. It might be stressful dealing with a crowd of people but ensure you put on a smile.
