  • RBMA Tips for Successful Exhibiting

    By Kip McMillan
    Kip McMillanYou’ve made the decision to participate in an RBMA Conference. So how do you make sure you’re taking the necessary steps to get the most out of your investment?

    The first step is to reserve a booth space. Once you have made the decision to exhibit and receive a booth confirmation you can begin planning your strategy. Your promotion should begin before you even arrive at the conference location.

    What can you do?

    Pre-Show 

    • e-Flash – Let me know you’re coming. Personally, I keep a folder of the booths I want to visit while I’m at the show. What have you done to ensure that I’ve included your company?
    • Sponsor Something – Consistently. It’s a great branding opportunity.
    • Buy the Attendee Pre-conference Registration List. It’s a fantastic resource for planning strategy before the show begins.
    • Understand your audience
    • Why do customers come to the RBMA show? Networking, Educational Sessions, Exhibitor Products

    Once you arrive at the conference, it is showtime. Get your head in the game, your best foot forward and by following a few Kip Tips you will be on your way to a successful experience.

    Showtime 

    • Have fun and make friends. Remember, attendees are hoping to sneak in a little rest and relaxation while away from the office.
    • Be perceived as a peer not as a vendor. We’re all looking for partners; be a source we would seek out for help and advice.
    • Form some sort of positive association. If I’m not buying your product today, will I call you next time I’m in the market?
    • Make me want to take your follow up phone call. I’m not always making a buying decision at the show. So, have you made a positive impression? Will I take your phone call next week?
    • Get me in your booth and engaged. Is your pitch interesting? Is your booth design inviting and non-threatening?

    Exhibiting Do’s and Don’ts 

    You want to make sure that the attendees will stop by your booth while walking through the Exhibit Hall. Here are a few suggestions to maximize your chances.

    • DON’T talk, text, or email on your cell. I’m polite; I don’t want to interrupt your important business.
    • DON’T perch like a vulture looking hungry. I don’t want to be ambushed.
    • DON’T complain – about anything. I have to listen to this from my physicians and hospitals; I sure don’t want to hear it from the vendors.
    • DON’T eat during the Exhibit Hall breaks. Again, I’m polite; I’m not going to interrupt you while you’re eating.
    • DON’T limit yourself to just the Exhibit Hall. Set something up with me outside the Exhibit Hall. I probably have space on my schedule.
    • DO be friendly and engaging.
    • DO know who I am.
    • DO use your existing customers to drag people over.
    • DO be unique and memorable.
    • DO take advantage of all contact possibilities.

    Measuring Success 

    You’ve either been exhibiting for years, or you soon will be. Of all the possible shows you might attend, the RBMA show provides the highest concentration of decision makers. Closing a new sale is fantastic, but there are other important accomplishments.

    • How many existing customers did you make laugh?
    • How many new contacts will take your follow up call?
    • How many meetings did you have outside the Exhibit Hall?
    • Do you have a new “nickname”?
    • Are you somebody’s expert?

    It’s all about building the relationships and repetitive messaging. RBMA makes every effort to bring in the customers. After that, it is up to you.
