Not only does a successful exhibition help exhibitors contact the most target customers at the lowest cost, but also, through physical observation, quickly lead supplier and demander to reach a commercial contract. However, many exhibitors who often have great hope to attend exhibitions cannot achieve the desired effect for various reasons and be disappointed. Facing with the mixed bag of exhibition market, it becomes very important for an exhibitor to choose a suitable exhibition. In this regard, here are the following suggestions for reference:
(1) The exhibition capability of an organizer
An excellent exhibition is inseparable from the organizer who possesses a strong appeal. An excellent organizer can not only arrange huge audiences, but also provide a lot of business opportunities for exhibitors; will also help the exhibitors inspect their competitors during the exhibition and see the current situation and trends of domestic and international industrial development and the latest products. In addition, the exhibition experience of the organizer is an important indicator to measure its exhibition capability. An organizer with rich exhibition experience will be able to effectively predict the potential problems that exhibitors may encounter during the exhibition and provide them more convenient services on the key nodes like construction and transportation.
(2) The reputation of an exhibition
From industry associations, peers, previous media reports, and exhibition reports, it is obtainable of relative information. Therefore, according to previous reports, to know the exhibitors’ return rate and the audience number will make a more accurate understanding of the exhibition effect.
(3) The nature of an exhibition
To select the exhibition nature based on the exhibited target customer, is it an industrial exhibition or common exhibition? Is it opening for public or professional audience?
To know the participation situation of the industry competitors and large well-known companies, it is always a good choice to select the exhibition where the industry well-known enterprises attend.
(5) The concurrent activities of an exhibition
Except for the traditional functions like display and trading, an excellent exhibition should have the ability to establish multiple communication and promotion platform and conduct high-quality concurrent activities. By participating the concurrent activities, exhibitors will clearly understand the dynamics within the industry, get acquainted with fellows or customers, and probably establish a relationship between industry association and government.
