One of the biggest post-COVID comeback stories could be the trade show industry. Granted, a lot of businesses suffered from partial shutdowns and severe capacity restrictions for months, but in-person trade shows were 100% suspended for over a year. Now that most restrictions have been relaxed, trade shows are set to come roaring back; businesses still recognize trade shows as an important part of the marketing portfolio, and a lot of people are craving that opportunity for personal interaction.
I’m Ready – But Is My Exhibit?
But it turns out a lot of exhibitors aren’t physically ready. Without knowing when (or even if) they would be attending trade shows again, companies held off investments in new exhibits and displays, and with that, companies that specialize in building trade show booths have virtually shut down. Then comes the big surprise for the Marketing Director: there’s a big industry show next month, and we’re exhibiting! Once the panic subsides, the typical problems have to be addressed:
- We didn’t build our new exhibit… can we use the old one?
- Are all the pieces there?
- We rolled out a new campaign this year, and the old booth doesn’t have the right graphics.
- Can we get it shipped to Nashville in time?
- Oh no, the [fill in the blank] didn’t get here!
