More than 10,000 tradeshows take place in the United States every year. Has your company participated?
Tradeshows are exhibitions of products and services hosted by companies in specific industries or sectors. Originally, tradeshows were large markets that were open to the public, similar to the trade fairs of medieval Europe, but in the modern world, tradeshows take various specialized forms.
Some tradeshows are enormous. The China Import and Export Fair in Guangzhou, China, for instance, is reputed to host more than 20,000 vendors and 100,000 buyers. It is held twice a year, in spring and autumn, and generates about $30 billion in trade during the five weeks it is active. The CES tradeshow in Las Vegas, hosted by the Consumer Technology Association, is also massive by American standards. CES 2018 housed more than 4,400 exhibitors spanning 2.7 million square feet of exhibit space, showcasing their products to 182,000 industry professionals—more than 63,000 of which came from overseas.
While tradeshows afford opportunities for striking valuable deals, conferences present an excellent venue for strengthening relationships and prospecting for customers. Both are powerful platforms for enhancing brand image through interaction with various constituents, including investors, customers, suppliers, media and the general public.
Unfortunately, many companies do not recognize the value of these opportunities and, therefore, do not utilize them. They may also be deterred by the notion that too much work will be involved in organizing or attending such events. Fortunately, the SmallCapRelations team is here to make the process easy.
