Making the Most Out of Virtual Trade Shows

If you are anything like us, you are probably missing trade show season this year! There is nothing quite like the face-to-face relationships that you build at a show. Not to mention the fact that it is a great opportunity to boost your brand’s visibility and showcase your products and services.

Trade shows are important for many different reasons, but some of the top ones include –

  • Networking & Building Rapport
  • Sales & Lead Generation
  • Education & Training
  • Brand Expansion & Awareness

Virtual Events

Much like we are all adapting to virtual meetings via Zoom or Microsoft Teams (to name a few), many conferences and trade shows are also making the switch to virtual events. And with the right technology and presenters in place, these events are sure to still be a success!

Although there are some disadvantages to virtual events such as “video call fatigue” and the lack of face-to-face interaction, there are also some great benefits to trade shows going virtual including –

  • Money saved on travel and hotel stays
  • No parking fees
  • Saves time on travel and booth set-up
  • Reduced cost to virtually exhibit

Marketing Materials

With an event being held virtually, does that mean I do not need to hand out my swag or marketing materials? To be honest, this means the complete opposite. SWAG (or stuff we all get) is a very important component whether the event be virtual or in person. When it comes to the swag and marketing materials that you handout at a trade show, keep it mind that attendees are looking for the following –

  • Functional and useful items
  • More than one item
  • Well-designed items

People want to get to know your brand! Make sure that whatever you choose to handout to attendees properly captures your company and what it stands for.
