Trade Show And Exhibit Shipping Success
In a competitive business environment, trade shows offer plenty of opportunities for companies eager to find new clients and boost their sales. Purchasing space at a trade show also provides the ideal platform to showcase your products and services to the public. They enable your business to make personal connections, face to face.
Trade shows are also a cost-effective way of getting new sales. It’s been estimated that the cost of attending a trade show is nearly 40 percent less than hiring a team to make sales calls. You don’t have to invest a lot of money in your booth — just be creative in presenting your products. Use your time there in a cost-effective manner to demonstrate how your products are used, their durability, and how they can help the customer. When people can see a product in action, they’re more likely to make on-the-spot purchases or advance orders. In fact, trade shows are the number one business-to-business marketing plan to support sales.
With that in mind, the one thing a company doesn’t want to do is lose money at a trade show by arranging for their products to get shipped to the event … only to encounter an unforeseen act of schedule change or transport re-route. There’s a lot of careful planning that goes into turning an industry trade show into a success, and the timely shipment of display materials is a key to that. In fact, trade shows operate on tight schedules, and businesses need to be sure they arrive early enough to set things up before the crowds walk in the doors. That means being confident that your shipments arrive on time for the morning set up.
Likewise, if the company is based in the United States and is attending a trade show overseas, they need to be doubly sure that their shipments arrive in a timely manner. It is important to have real-time shipment visibility, alert and cargo tracking to keep you informed every step of way.
At Amerijet, we understand that organizing materials for a trade show is about more than picking up shipments at Point A and delivering them to the final destination. At Amerijet, we’re all about shipping, offering a variety of services to meet every day shipping needs. But we also have years of experience in shipping for trade shows.
We know how to guarantee that critical shipments will move from the warehouse to the show site precisely on schedule –and intact as well.
