How important are trade fair stands today?

Take a deep breath, tighten the last screw on the stand, and proudly unroll the banner with the company logo. Does that sound familiar? You may think that in times of digital marketing and social media, this is totally outdated. Then think again! In this blog article, you’ll learn how important trade fair stands still are today and why you definitely shouldn’t underestimate them. So grab a delicious coffee, get cozy and let’s dive into the world of trade fair stands together.

Online vs. offline

Yes, we live in a digital world where small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), startups, founders, large enterprises, e-commerce companies, non-profit organizations, and freelancers rely on digital marketing to achieve their goals. But have you ever thought about the fact that trade fair stands could still play an important role, even in times when virtual reality dominates our lives?

Trade fairs offer opportunities

There are many reasons why trade fair stands are still important today. On the one hand, they offer you and your company the opportunity to present your products or services live and in color. This means that potential customers have the chance to test your products, get to know your team personally, and convince themselves of your expertise. And don’t forget: Personal contact remains the best way to build trust and establish long-term relationships.
On the other hand, trade fairs are a great opportunity to network and observe your industry up close. You can exchange ideas directly with other companies, decision-makers, and influencers, forge partnerships, and maybe even dust off a secret recipe or two for your future success. Sounds pretty cool, right?

6 tips for your next trade fair stand

Now that you know why trade fair stands are still relevant in our digital world, you’re probably wondering how you can best use them for your business. Don’t worry, we have a few tips for you here that will help you make your stand the absolute highlight of the next trade fair:

1. Design is superior:

Make your stand appealing and inviting. Display your logo prominently, use appealing colors, and make sure your products or services are clearly displayed.

2. Technology that inspires:

Use modern technologies such as interactive displays, virtual reality, or augmented reality to engage your visitors and provide them with an unforgettable experience.

3. Communication is everything:

Train your team in communication skills, so they can competently answer any questions visitors may have about your products or services.

4. Giveaways and promotions:

Offer your visitors small treats like giveaways or discount promotions to pique their curiosity and get them to stay longer at your stand. For example, a good idea is personalized goodies that are not only practical but also aesthetically pleasing.

5. Social media integration:

Use social media platforms to promote your event and stand. Share pictures and videos from your stand and encourage your followers to visit you there. Also, consider running a social media promotion right at your stand to generate even more attention.

6. Follow-up is key:

After the fair is before the fair! It’s important that you maintain the contacts you’ve gained and enter them into your CRM system. This way, you can start targeted follow-up campaigns and build long-term business relationships.

What are you waiting for?

And there we have it: Trade fair stands are still important today and should by no means be underestimated. They provide valuable opportunities for you and your company to showcase your products or services, attract new customers, and maintain existing relationships. Whether SME, start-up, large company, e-commerce company, non-profit organization, or freelancer – a well-designed, appealing trade fair stand can contribute to success in any case.
