Can you give some tips for those exhibiting for the first time in London and specifically at RetailEXPO?
This is a great opportunity for exhibitors to connect with potential clients, business partners, analysts and the media. Planning ahead will help, whether it’s making plans to meet new people, reconnecting with long-distance contacts at the Champagne Bar, or networking over a coffee at the Retailers Lounge.
Entering the Innovation and Trail Awards is a fantastic opportunity to raise exhibitors’ profiles and showcase their innovations, draw media attention, create business opportunities and driving traffic to their stands. At the same time, exhibitors are gaining a hallmark for the very best innovations within the retail industry, positioning their most innovative products at the forefront of their target audiences' minds.
Not to forget making use of marketing and PR materials to get target prospects and the media interested. In addition, exhibitors who have their technology integrated in the stand design or on display can provide that much needed brand awareness and be at the forefront of visitors’ minds.
