For manufacturers, exhibiting at a trade showrepresents one of the most valuable marketing opportunities they have all year.It better be. Producing a trade show event isone of the most expensive, resource-intensiveinitiatives in any marketer’s budget.Renting exhibition floor space, staffing thebooth, getting staff to and from the event, hotelaccommodations, meals, entertainment,designing and outfitting the booth, andmarketing your presence at the show make thisa costly endeavor.With your competitors just down – or evenacross – the aisle from you, getting the biggestbang for your marketing buck demands nothing less than an all-out effort to drive traffic to yourbooth and capture top-quality leads by thebucketful .Still, many, maybe most, are not taking advantage of all that social media and inboundmarketing have to offer in the context of a trade show. “The business value of Facebook andthe other social media is still largely untapped at trade shows,” says Scott Wherley, vicepresident global customer insights withReed Expositions, one of the world’s largest eventorganizers. “Some companies are doing it well, but many are not making the most of thisopportunity.”Making use of all the inbound marketing and social media tools at your disposal helps yousolidify the connection from your real world presence to your online marketing channels.
