NOTE: Due to the fact that so many #ExpoChat participants were at IMEX and unable to attend today’s chat we have decided to postpone this topic for a later date. Please be sure to sign up on our mailing list (right over…just to the right of this paragraph in the sidebar.) to get our weekly chat topics once they are posted.
Expochat topic for Wednesday, October 16, 2013 3pm ET
Moderating: Traci Browne (@tracibrowne)
In June we covered a hodgepodge of topics and we dubbed it our Goldilocks chat. We asked what was too much, too little or just right when it came to attendee marketing, exhibitor fees, food and booze, length of show, etc.
This week we’re going to use the same format, but of course covering different topics. We want to know what you think is too much, not enough or just right when it comes to things like:
- Exhibitor training
- Helping attendees network
- How we compensate speakers
- What exhibitors think the show’s role is in bringing them buyers
- Show floor activities
- And more…
Q1 What is the minimal training/guidance a show organizer should provide for their exhibitors?
Q2 What type of training/guidance might exhibitors want but could be considered beyond responsibility of show and why?
Q3 What are the best ways to deliver training/guidance to exhibitors? Have you seen anything that stood out to you?
Q4 What is the minimal guidance a show organizer should provide attendees to help them network?
Q5 What ways can a show go above and beyond to help attendees network?
Q6 Do you think all speakers should be compensated for delivering education at a trade show? Why/Why not?
Q7 What type of compensation do you think is adequate?
Q8 How far should a show organizer go to deliver buyers to exhibitors?
Q9 Have you seen shows do anything interesting to facilitate meetings between buyers and exhibitors?
Find out if we can possibly discover the Goldilocks planet of the trade show world when it comes to these topics and how your thoughts compare to your peers and your customers.
