9 Trade Show Tips
For Gift Retailers
 

Make your plans now to attend current and upcoming trade shows. You can find best sellers and new product introductions when you visit your regional, national and international trade shows.

#1 Plan Ahead

Prepare for your show visits. Successful retailers go to conventions focused on their goals. Get the expo layout and locate exhibitors you want to meet. Use your time wisely to be sure you check out the entire show.

#2 Budget Basics

Decide what you need for your shop. Plan how much you want to spend with current vendors. Then leave some room for great finds and tempting trends. Keep some flexibility for special offers that provide you with extra profit margins.

#3 Show Specials

Event directories and websites frequently feature enticing offers from exhibitors including discounts, free shipping, display units and bakers dozens. Be aware of savings available to you.  At the show, make sure to ask if there are any additional discounts.

#4 Treasure Hunt

Check out every aisle to discover fresh ideas and trends in the market. Finding new vendors and product introductions make trade show visits profitable adventures. Keep your store the place to shop for fabulous finds.

#5 Quick Study

You can attend workshops and seminars to learn innovative ways to operate and market your shop. You’ll also enjoy talking with other retailers to share tips regarding successful promotions, best sellers and business strategies.

#6 Power Peak

Yes, shows are exciting but remember to take care of your self. Make sure to eat breakfast, carry water and snacks plus take a lunch break. You accomplish much more when you’re on top of your game. Also wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes. You want to focus on the products, not your feet.

#7 Have Fun!

This is your chance to find sure fire winners for your customers. Plus connect with other retailers during your visit to exchange ideas and laughs. You can also note some display themes to freshen up your shop. Runway shows are a cool way to see the latest fashions while you take a break.

#8 Wrap It Up

When you're back home, read through your catalogs and other info you collected. You'll find great products in many categories you might have skipped. Some "Special Offers" are also highlighted with extended deadlines for orders placed by a specific date after the show. You can order online or by phone for your convenience. 

#9 Make It Happen

Review the flyers you received at the seminars and workshops you attended. Follow up with your show contacts to discuss ways to make the ideas work best. Then use or adapt the suggestions for your shop.
