  • Getting the Most from Your Regional Business Expo Experience

        The Regional Business Expo allows businesses to show what their business is all about. It is a great opportunity for those who sell products and services to other businesses to expand their marketing and sales potential. Here are a few tips to follow to make the most of the experience:


    • Set up an attractive display to market your company: cover your table, bring attractive signage, and SMILE! Even something as simple as wearing your company shirt will go a long way!

    • Get out from behind your table! Stand and greet people as they walk by. Bring a partner for the day, who is trained to answer questions, so that you can visit the other booths.

    • Offer a door prize or giveaway! Have a treat for visitors at your booth, whether it is a mint or chocolate or a gadget, take the moment when visitors pause at your booth to engage them.

    • Give attendees the opportunity to sign up for more information about your company, and follow-up after the event!

    • Play a game! Attendees are often looking for fun things to do at these events. A simple game like a bean bag toss or a hula-hoop contest will get people talking about your company throughout the day! Or, simply ask attendees to take a fun photo to share on social media with #RBE17.

    • If you can, have a video playing at your booth that shows off your business and products. Talk positively about your employees.

    • Offer specials or discounts and be prepared to take orders at the Expo.

    • Avoid using your cell phone during the event. Your attention should be focused on your booth visitors.

    • Have a bowl or hat to collect cards and slips for giveaways and for inquiries.
