On the Road to Success: Vendor Days
We have been to our fair share of vendor days. Some good, some bad. It all depends on what you're looking to get out of the experience. Here's our top three tips on making the best out of vendor days.
1. Set a goal - What are you looking to get out of your participation? Profit, new contacts, brand exposure....All three?!? Of course, everyone wants to atleast make back what they spent to attend.
2. Get as much info as possible from the sponsors. - You want to know the basics, start & end times, locations, number and type of attendees expected. If you can get attendee or even vendor contact information you can build your mailing list.
3. Talk to previous attendees. Find out if the event is mostly networking or do attendees come to shop. You don't want to bring a ton of merchandise where the guests are only interested in receiving free samples.
