Exhibiting Tips

  • Here are some tips from our top exhibitors on how to make the most of the opportunities Retail Design Expo provides.

    What do you want to get out of the show?

    Whether it's building brand awareness, closing sales or reaching for lead targets, it's all easier to achieve if you start with the right objectives in mind.

    By defining your goals and your budget from the outset, you can decide where best to allocate your time and resources for a productive and rewarding event experience.

    As part of your Exhibitor Package, you have the opportunity to create an online company profile on the event website.

    Make use of it and fully complete your company description and details of your products to help visitors decide to put you on their “must-see” list. You can access and amend your Company Profile via the Exhibitor Portal.

    Social media is a great way to engage easily, instantly and cost-effectively with customers, prospects, industry experts, press and associations to build networks and awareness.

    Make sure that you add your social media links to your Company Profile so that visitors can join your networks and see what your brand is all about.

  • Make sure that everyone knows you’re exhibiting at Retail Design Expo.

    Download and personalise official RDE banners, logos and even invitations with your company name and booth number to include in your digital communications.

    What's more, you can book meetings in advance with your key clients and prospective visitors on site.

    No doubt you'll be planning your own PR campaign around your participation to gain important exposure in key industry publications before, during and after the show.

    But remember to share your news and plans for RDE with our PR team too! That way, we can highlight these in our own PR and media campaign and to potential visitors.

    The Exhibitor Portal isn't just for creating your online profile.

    You'll also find handy tools like the Exhibitor Manual and Exhibitor Checklist, which help set out your exhibiting journey with us.

    Tick things off along the way to stay on track, ensure you're prepared and keep on top of deadlines.

  • Do all your stand staff know the objectives for the event? Make sure your team are fully briefed on what visitors will want from your company, so that they can provide the best service possible.

    It's a good idea to create a schedule allowing for breaks and for the stand to be fully staffed at all times - your visitors will get a lot more out of a well-informed, refreshed and organised team!

    There are plenty of ways to ensure you stand out from the crowd at Retail Design Expo.

    Whether you choose one of our sponsorship opportunities, create a novelty feature at your stand, stage a product launch, run an interactive presentation or something else, the possiblities to engage with your visitors are endless.

    We're happy to help you at any and every step of the way to ensure that your exhibiting journey is a success.

    With years of experience holding industry-leading retail solutions events, you can be assured that you're in safe hands working with us.
