Choose the Right Exhibition

Do your research and select the exhibition that attracts the right type of visitors for your business. Look closely at the published list of visitors from previous exhibitions or those already signed up for the one you are researching. At Piranha we have access to all the upcoming exhibitions and can provide information and guidance to ensure you attend the right one

Set Measurable Goals

Set measurable goals that can be assigned to the exhibition, make these applicable to your business and why you are attending such as the number of follow up appoints set, the number of new leads to be distributed to your sales team, the number of new business quotes issued and ultimately the number of confirmed orders. Setting goals will enable you to compare one exhibition to another or compare different years

Design Your Stand to match your objectives

Your exhibition stand is the first thing people will see so it needs to stand out and attract people to you. The design needs to reinforce the objective you have set for the exhibition, for example to generate sales leads around a new product launch. But remember, an exhibition hall will be busy with much visual noise so make the stand design simple and strong-

Attract People to Your Stand to Start the Conversation

Be ruthless, you are not at the exhibition to provide background information to educate the general public, you want sales and to get sales you need to start a conversation. Include things on your stand designed simply to get people to walk on, perhaps a competition, some entertainment, but avoid being seen as a free bar!  A gimmick works really well to bring people to you; however, it needs to be credible and related to your brand so that it is memorable and not tacky.

Maximise promotional and advertising opportunities

Some exhibition contractors provide great marketing support opportunities and vehicles to communicate with attendees. Use all promotional channels before the event to let people know you are attending and fully utilise the channels provided by the organisers. Do everything you can to get people to visit your stand- a busy stand is a successful company and will make it easier for new customers to visit you


Include interaction on your stand, things that people can see, touch, hear, small or taste. It’s a long day visiting a trade show and people want to exercise all their senses. You will be more memorable if you have some theatre weaved into your corporate presentation

Record everything

Have a system to record everything, make sure you fully understand everything about the visitors to your site. If possible, get them to sign up to receive further information to make yourself GDPR compliant for the future

Follow Up

One of the most important steps of exhibiting is following up on the people who have taken the time to talk to you. If you don’t follow up the leads, then the entire exhibition expenditure will have been wasted

Review and learn

It Is unlikely you will only exhibit once so you need to evaluate your success at meeting your objectives, learn what worked for you and what didn’t, and implement this for the next exhibition you attend

On average, 75% of visitors to an exhibition are there to buy or plan to buy in the future – so make sure your impression is a memorable one! With these tips from Piranha you should be easily on your way to exhibiting success!
