Establish 50 quantity business contacts with potential qualitative customers interested in a new good namely.
As a result 10 sales amount should be closed by due date of time. Having defined goods and services, precede to the exposition layout to make it draw attention exactly to these items. Mistake: very often the firms engaged in manufacturing of several types of goods layout all assortment at a time.
What space is needed? First of all, the standing area is defined by your goals and your budget amount, with space left for personnel and visitors. What is the best place to locate the stand? Generally customers turn right or move to the center. Scrutiny the Floor Plan. Where are the sector big players? Where are your rivals? Located closer to a toilet or a bar, an exhibitor can get immense success.
How to design the stand? It should correspond to your style — hi-tech, state-of-the-art, steady, etc. Within 3 seconds, a customer should: — Notice your stand. Use slogans, signboards and headings. When at commodities fairs, focus on definite articles, not on the brand.
Transportation of equipment and exhibits. Information an exhibitor should know. A hired team? Pay attention to the adequate number of shelves and other facilities, as also to the space to demonstrating goods when in use. Container storage, etc.? With absolute certainty we can say that the result of the exhibition will directly depend on the preparatory work carried out by the exhibitor, clarity develop a plan and schedule.
In preparation for the exhibition, the participant must pay attention to the less important items: — Define the objectives and tasks that need to be translated in the course of the exhibition; — Plan your budget the cost of exhibition space, the cost of their equipment, the cost of work with visitors, labor costs of employees ; — Determine the type of stand and its location; — Select exhibits for display; — Plan activities advertising and presentation character actions, presentations, seminars during the exhibition; — To carry out coordination and guidance of the stand staff — their tasks, responsibilities and work schedule.
We also recommend that solve the problem of power, if necessary — Accommodation employees; — Prepare information materials: brochures, business cards, price lists. Printing products better categorized: inexpensive material for distribution to casual visitors, and more expensive brochures for distribution to visitors, exhibiting real interest and leave their names and addresses; — Summarizing exhibitions and activities after it.
Transportation of exhibition goods For the delivery of bulk items may need special transport, and you have to check the entire route — from the container until the stand. Book transport at a convenient time and do not forget about the return shipping. After the exhibition organize transport and store exhibits.
Make sure that the load was carefully dismantled and packed — perhaps more exhibits will take you to work or sale. Do not forget to specify in advance the schedule of delivery and removal of exhibits with the head of the exhibition, in fact, such large equipment requires more time for its installation and commissioning. If the exhibition is held in another country, you need to take care of all customs formalities, reliable transportation of cargo, and, if required, for permission to trade.
Despite the fact that you invite the press, it is advisable to have your own pictures, and honored guests of your stand or rank reception, then to use them in publications. Exhibits There is no doubt that the attractive exhibits will look, the faster they will gain the attention of visitors. Appearance exhibits can be improved by placing it in the window next to the attractive external object, or place on a material with a pleasant face fur, velvet, suede.
You can also use phyto-design. One of the important factors of presentation is to show exhibits in conditions close to actual practice, show video clips the need to think of ways the question of presentation equipment, as well as a way to showcase their services. Important role played by the lighting booth lighting. We recommend also immediately determine whether the exhibits to be available publicly, or they need to be further insure against unlawful actions failure, theft.
Organize stand cleaning. Dust and fingerprints do not decorate your exhibits. In the venues made mandatory cleaning passes, but the exhibitor should take care of its stand and hire workers that they cleaned it every day.
At such approach your expectations remain as they are and do not achieve results they are capable of. Fix on sociable employees. They should wish to promote at the stand. An employee you have chosen should be observant and notice modulations in communication, inclusive of non-verbals. She should be competent to answer any question of a visitor. The employee should be skilled in listening and asking leading questions.
People communication is a key argument to success. At the meeting cover the main items: 1. The aim of participation. The list of goods for the exposition no bolts from the blue at the opening! Requirements to the personnel at the stand — people should have individual plans meeting common aim what information to collect, how many presentations to hold, etc.
Practice the personnel in front of the team to demonstrate the goods from the stand, arrange efficiently potential customers. Make it a rule to finish every day with a brief meeting for the promoting personnel. It will help to eliminate mistakes when they are fresh before next day comes. The personnel working at the stand should be motivated through selling commission, or extra days off, etc.
Exhibition — is a place where the personnel can either credit to or ruin further contacts. They say a customer has 3 — 4 seconds to make a persistent view of the firm. The stand promoting personnel should have a respectable looking. Every firm has its own style of dressing.
Follow the tradition. Like actors on the stage. From the very beginning up to the close the personnel at the stand are like actors on the stage. Visitors come like spectators who are keen to see a performance. Their expectations are great as they endow with their time and it is precious.
Exhibition sale differs from a common one. Buyer and sellers are in equal position here, none having priority as in a common situation of selling. Time is money. The working hours of the show and time of the visitor is limited. The bigger the event, the less time of a visitor is left for each particular stand.
They have limited time to collect and analyze the information they come across. The stats say in general a visitor spends minutes to a stand. The number of would-be buyers is definitely higher as compared to a traditional sale. Potential buyers come up to the sellers by their own wishing. On the other hand you get a unique chance to demonstrate bulky equipment.
Sale will be sale. And buyers will be buyers. Main issues to be focused on: 1. A variety of people attend shows. Some of them have definite idea in mind, another enjoy just wandering around. Treat them as they wish to be treated.
Propose your point of view. Getting in contact. How to start a conversation? Prepare greetings and fishing questions in advance. Your questions should be of open-type starting with the words Who? They motivate thinking and may lead to start a conversation.
Examples of fishing questions: 1. In what way is your firm connected to: the branch of industry? How much is this or that benefit vital to you now? What are your daily needs regarding definite situation? Within the influx of visitors you may feel understaffed. Some of them feel awkward disturbing a conversation of personnel that made themselves comfortable some where at the stand.
The stand promoters are not allowed to drink, eat, read, sprawl out, look tired or indifferent as it may cause negative reaction of a viewer. And not a single booklet will be able to restore it. How to ask and define potential customers?
Pertinent questions and active listening can yield in good results. Conduct your conversation in a question-answer manner. Skillfully asked questions make the customer relax and get in contact. With one mouth and two ears, use a rate Try to find out the following: 1. Name and position: 2. Name of company: 3. Region of location Firms within your zone of extension should get your special attention : 4. Grade of quality required: Amount required: Terms of adoption of decision to purchase: Terms of means assigning: The information collected should be put down to a special list — questionnaire.
Attempts to decode information written on the back of a visit card after the exhibition is of low efficiency. Collected questionnaires are a valuable scope of material to be reviewed and analyzed after the exhibition. Active listening: Active listening assumes efforts and concentration. Avoid estimation. Get feedback through the words, gestures, non-verbals.
Several universal principals: — Make sure that every exhibit functions properly. Dominating type. Be brief and exact. Avoid using technical terms if not inquired. Focus on benefits, namely assets and time saving. Avoid using technical terms. Give personal assurance.
Be logical; use precise information. What if you are ready to terminate the conversation but the visitor is not intended to? Use non-verbal communication and thought-out closing phrases that you have prepared. Call the visitor by name. Change your posture, put your palms together, hand in a sample or a souvenir; use it as an excuse to terminate the conversation. While doing it try to avoid eye-to-eye communication.
As I understood we will be of little use to your now. In case the situation will change, please get in touch with me. Having paid for participation, a firm usually sets at ease and relies only on the organizers as for promotion.
We agree that the exhibitor pays for advertising by the participation fee. But please note that this ad campaign is held for the whole event! We undertake to hold general advertising campaign and to interest targeted audience. Here some methods to draw visitors to your stand. Use the following:. Personal Invitation Cards Personal Invitation Cards are posted to highly focused groups of visitors — patrons or would-be customers; the Cards being signed by the firm executive.
Invitations sent over telephone or faxed. Use invitation as a ground to telephoning your patrons. Direct mailing. Your mailing campaign should meet your goals specified for the exhibition partaking. Motivate your customers to visit the exhibition to get a gift or a souvenir, to watch goods when in use, obtain discounts, benefit, etc. Trace the action effectiveness via the coupons dissemination. Two or three times in intervals, mail to your addressees. Change the content of your messages.
The following mail should contain an invitation card inclusive of coupon to visit your stand. The main aim of your participation is to stimulate viewers to visit your stand. Not to be confused with advertising! While branding contributes to your business reputation and good will. What to do? Choose editions that will highlight the event progress. When drawing up the release, answer within one page frame the following questions: 1.
In what way? How much? Try not to focus on pure advertisement, as visitors may be interested in further information on the issue. Dedicated handouts. A view of visitors wandering around with an armful of booklets, leaflets, etc. But outside the show the major part of it turns out to be colorful literary trash. Comments on manufacturing materials:. The most common mistake is when a stand promoter hands out booklets to every one passing by. Booklet is a result of earnest conversation with a visitor.
Valid goods are used as free samples. They should bear your commercial information — brand, properties. A visitor is not imposed to liabilities on receiving a sample. Use samples as gifts for the visitors who say fill in questionnaire or leave information to your database. Due little tricks at mailing you can orient to the categories of visitors and use a relative style for negotiating.
For example: A Playing-Cards Method. Under one cover you post to crucial customers invitation and the King card; to suppliers you post the Queen, and Jack to likely buyers. In the attached letter ask the addressees to bring the cards with them to have a chance to get a gift in exchange for the card.
Step Five : Present the report to the relevant ministry for consideration. If need be, prepare a PowerPoint presentation to formally introduce the new idea s to the minister who can use the idea s to advance his or her duties and obligations to the country. Step Six : Follow up on the implementation of the ideas submitted for application in solving local or national problems. Ministers may forget the idea s submitted to them. Jogging their memory with a friendly note would be appropriate.
What is being suggested is not an independent think tank. It is a government entity responsible for providing the ministries with ideas to advance Armenia. If Armenia seizes the opportunity to become the first government to create a center to search for ideas to put the nation on the path to progress, then we should wholeheartedly embrace the idea of establishing a centre responsible for generating ideas.
I believe we should honor that long-standing promise to our next generation that they will inherit a better Armenia than we did because ideas are not only aplenty, they are free and are able to make changes in our lives. Research in the past had many challenges.
You had to go to the library and search the catalogs and the stacks of books for information to generate ideas. You can do all that work at home or at your workplace office. Few ideas have gone on to have as profound an effect on our current lives as the Internet. Without the Internet we feel lost due to its extraordinary abilities to connect us with all sorts of information.
The Armenian government would be the first ever to institute such an advisory board to serve the various ministries by providing them with ideas for progress. Without ideas humans would still be living in caves and hunting and gathering food.
If Armenia aspires for greatness, the search for ideas would be imperative by a centralized system in a special department—for ideas have changed the world, and ideas will change Armenia as well! Sounds all fine and dandy until you try to advance anything in Armenia, but then you get shafted by Armenia. Armenia has done me dirty in too many ways to forgive. No more bleeding heart to a nation and people who I tried to help with nothing to gain, which I was fine with.
I had no idea that not only was it nothing to gain, but it was to screw and squeeze everything else out of me. Then so be it RA. In an ideal world that would be ideal. Armenia will get there if people learn to listen. Powerful corporations through hired fakes, are now politicizing scientific facts to discredit experts and push their agendas forward.
Experts therefore, should not fall into their trap and play their games. Research and development are much needed in every aspect and every ministry, more urgently so, in the diaspora domain. Without it, implementation of laws cannot succeed. We keep hoping for the best, and believe in the new generation who are thinking differently.

Artists who want their works to be exhibited usually have to transact with gallery owners for exhibit space.
However, looking for exhibit opportunities is not as easy as finding gallery owners who like the art presented to them.
