HOW YOUR BOOTH STAFFER CAN HURT YOUR BUSINESS?

Posted on Aug 6, 2018 5:40:53 PM

 

When it comes to vendor events, your company only has a small window of time to bring in potential customers and wow them. The staffers at your booth are your first line at these events, therefore success is dependent on their behavior during the event. Even the most carefully chosen booth staffers can end up hurting your event, and then, it’s time to say goodbye.



 

 

Lateness Or Failing To Show Up

The reasoning is simple: if your booth staffers don’t show up, you have a few products on a table and nothing else. The key to success in a vendor event is the interaction and lead generation from the visitors to your booth, and without a staffer, that can’t happen. Beyond the initial worry that you’ll miss valuable interaction with potential customers if no one is staffing your booth, lateness or a failure to show up may indicate a fundamental problem with your booth staffer. Chronic lateness could be a sign of underlying social anxiety or lack of confidence. Individuals staffing your booth should be confident and outgoing, as well as punctual.

YOU HAVE A DISPLAY BOOTH, BUT HOW DO YOU MAKE IT INTELLIGENT?

Posted on Jan 5, 2018 6:31:02 PM

 

 

RECLAIM YOUR MIND AND START ACTIVATING YOUR INTELLIGENCE — THE NEXT BIG THING IS HERE AND EVERYWHERE OR SO IT SEEMS

Artificial intelligence, long a staple of science fiction, is fast moving into the mainstream of every day life with the potential to revolutionize and disrupt numerous industries and companies. However, one thing is for certain, given the performance of Apples's Siri and Amazon's Alexa, artificial intelligence is far from being intelligent.

Because,

“It takes something more than intelligence to act intelligently.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Having thus said, today we are on a mission to make your booth intelligent. Needless to say, your first order of the day is to invest on developing the "emotional intelligence" of your people who will be staffing your booth. Give them lessons on intelligence —  train them on the concept to "hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function."

A word of caution: Anything that can be replicated will be replicated and will have a price that will tend towards zero.

Train your people to stretch their minds, such that it never shrinks back to its former dimensions.

Booth Staffing Tips for the Digital Era

 

Staffing for Trade Shows and Events has changed. More of the same will not do anymore.

Before “Big Data” and the proliferation of electronic marketing it was sales people who reigned supreme at the show. Their personality and ability to connect with people were key tools for getting more people into the booth. Crowd gatherers were big too as it was all about getting people who you did not know to come into the booth and learn all about your company. While salespeople can still be great staffers and people skills are always great, the landscape of trade shows has changed and with that the type of skills needed to staff the booth.
