How to Make the Most Out of the MedTech Tradeshow
When attending the tradeshow, it can be overwhelming so we’ve compiled 10 tips to help you maximize your time, marketing efforts, and make your attendance a success.
Before the Show:
- Identify measurable goals for the tradeshow. What do you need to achieve in order for it to be a successful venture for your business?
- Determine which exhibitors you want to visit to help you achieve your purpose at the tradeshow. Organize the list by “must see” and “want to see” companies to help prioritize your time effectively.
- Contact the “must see” exhibitors prior to the show to schedule appointments. This will better guarantee your ability to connect with those necessary companies.
- Create a schedule for your day(s) that includes appointments and the presentations, demonstrations, seminars and workshops you want to attend.
During the Show:
- Seek out networking opportunities by (1) regrouping with new contacts over a meal (2) introducing yourself to others attending the same seminars and workshops (3) attending organized meetups with other like-minded people (4) taking a break at the onsite bar. Don’t be shy and don’t forget to pass out your business cards!
- Skip the crowded booths because it may be difficult for you to get in front of the right person. Instead revisit the booth when the traffic is lighter, typically towards the end of the day.
- Keep notes throughout the day about the contacts you made and the conversations you had so you can summarize a more detailed trip report in the evening.
After the Show:
- Review your trip report and identify how you will use this information to implement a plan to successfully achieve your tradeshow goals.
- Follow up with the contacts you made to request more information or to schedule a meeting to discuss the next steps.
