We’ve just about recovered from our first major show – the NEC Spring Fair – and we learnt a LOT.
Things like… next time, we’ll leave the plastic sheeting on the carpet until the last minute; a grubby carpet is not a good look. And we won’t keep adding products to the stand (just because we love them) and then panic because we haven’t worked out the quantities.
It took us about 5 days to get the stand ready!
The thing that made all the hard work worthwhile (months of planning, trips up and down the M40 setting up, non-stop talking /standing during the 6-day show) was the wonderful feedback (woohoo!)…
So this show was a big one for us, we learnt a lot about what to do (and what not to do) and we’re already planning our next show.
Have you got any trade show tips and tricks?! Please Tweet us, or share them via our Facebook or Instagram feeds – we’re all ears!
Oh and most importantly – after our next show, we’ll book in a WHOLE day to sleep and recover.
