Trade Show Success Starts With The Invitation

Participating in a trade show is a great way to introduce your company and your products.  It’s also the place where you come face-to-face with your competition, and therefore, very important that you set yourself apart, starting with your invitation. Below are 5 tips on how a unique, dimensional trade show invitation is the start of your trade show success.

The product above is the Changing Picture.

1. Engage your audience – An invitation that is well-designed, unique, and interactive will increase attendance because you have engaged your audience from the very beginning.

2. Spark a conversation –The right invitation can create buzz prior to the show. People will start talking about you, your company and your booth.  Use the power of word-of-mouth to attract attendees.

3. Create a positive first impression – Often times, the invitation is an introduction and the first impression of your business. Make it count.

4. Drive attendance – Your message on an eye-catching invitation will attract your ideal customers and motivate them to visit your booth.

5. Create lasting brand awareness – Why go to the time and expense of creating a throw-away invitation? When designed for maximum interactivity, your invitation will serve as a marketing piece that gives your company exposure and brand awareness long after the show has ended.
