When planning your trip to the show, leave time to think and be prepared for unexpected delays or turn of events – don’t be unrealistic about what you can achieve, and you may even be pleasantly surprised who you meet.
Don’t forget to take a pen and paper , your laptop or iphone – so that you can make notes and collect information.
Take your business cards and some sort of briefcase or bag- you’ll be surprised just how much information you’ll gather at the show. And the people you meet on the day could become your preferred suppliers, or your best customers.
After the show, don’t let your motivation go off the boil or your new contacts cool. Call the people who gave you their cards, keep those lunch and meeting dates, and put your new contacts in your address book.
