Andrea Williams: Exhibiting Success
What do the successful companies Noodle Head (Pawparazzi), Angela Frost, and MOGO Designs all have in common? They understand the value of trade shows. Sales are the lifeblood of every company, and few events help rack up strong sales and positive PR like a trade event. The right trade show generates serious customers, provides a chance to showcase new products, and offers insights into market trends. Sharing at trade shows can also help foster relationships that can help businesses expand.
The only problem with trade shows? Not being able to get there. It takes a lot of time to plan, coordinate, and set up a booth at a show, none of which immediately adds to an exhibitor’s bottom line. Salespeople and other staff members often get pulled off other assignments to handle the show, which can result in an ineffective utilization of resources. Plus, every company is slave to Murphy’s Law: whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. There are also any number of issues that can typically spring up at the last minute (delayed flights, mis-booked reservations and late deliveries are on that list).
Wouldn’t it be great to have an experienced trade show freelancer that understands your company and its products well enough to take the hassle out of trade show exhibitions? Brands big and small turn to Andrea Williams, a trade show expert with years of experience providing the power, panache, personality and persuasive marketing skills that attract attention and sales on trade show floors.
