Exhibiting at an industry tradeshow or the local Chamber Expo is a great way to promote your business. But if you don’t know the right steps and techniques, you could unknowingly sabotage your professional reputation, not to mention waste your time and money.

Tradeshow consultant Marlys Arnold, author of Build A Better Trade Show Image will teach you how to immediately identify and avoid the seven most common mistakes made by exhibitors including:

  • Failing to set goals or setting unrealistic ones
  • Assuming people will magically show up
  • Staff that hasn’t been properly trained
  • Attacking attendees as they pass the booth
  • Bad booth behavior
  • Trashy booth display
  • Inadequate follow-up or none at all
