Training your Staff for the Preparation of a Trade Show
Trade fairs and exhibitions are important events in the annual business calendar of most companies. This is because business owners understand the myriad benefits to their business and brand that can be derived from participating in such fairs.
How to Train your Staff
Your regular staff is hardly trained to handle the volume and diversity of traffic to your exhibition stalls. Training them beforehand is therefore absolutely essential if you want to derive maximum mileage from your trade stall.
Importance of Having the Right Kind of Staff
Notwithstanding all the benefits, booking a stall at a trade fair or exhibition is not cheap or easy. However, all your efforts will go to waste if you do not have the right kind of people to man your stalls. People manning exhibition stalls are the biggest factor influencing buyer’s perception. Everything else, including brand name and products come later. In fact, the staff in charge of your exhibition stalls can make all the difference to the success of your plans.
Having the Right Information
Before heading out for the exhibition or trade fair, personnel who will man your stall must be briefed about all such information which you feel can make a mark on customer’s minds. Your staff should not come across as ill-informed which would be extremely embarrassing for your company’s image. However, this does not mean that they can talk on for hours as most visitors stop at stalls for a few seconds. Your staff should be trained on how to pass on the most important and interesting information to enquirers within a time span of a few minutes.
Trade show display stands are great way to informed customers and investors about your products and services.
