This blog post is a trade show special. Since the last post, we have been to three shows around the country and are preparing to attend at a fourth. Going to trade shows is a great way to find both vendors and potential prospects. Even in small shows, there can potentially be thousands of people walking through from all manner of businesses: suppliers, consumers, consultants, government officials, manufacturers’ reps, and more.
Exhibiting at a trade show can be more profitable than simply walking through one for a variety of reasons:
- The opportunity to speak to many more potential clients rather than only the ones who are exhibiting.
- The advertising potential from exposure in trade show magazines and other advertising media.
- The opportunity to make a brand name for the company in markets where you can choose what association people make with your company.
For these reasons, Faspro Technologies has been attending trade shows since we opened our doors. We have only as of this year begun exhibiting at shows. This decision has been highly beneficial to us and we will continue to exhibit at industry focused trade shows and events in the future.
The following is a list of our future appearances and of our recently attended shows where we exhibited or attended:
