Tips to Make the Most Out of Automotive Conferences and Trade Shows

You’ve decided you’re attending one of the big auto conferences this year. Great! Now’s the time to get ready. In order to gain maximum exposure, leave a lasting impression on your potential clients, and network with the right people and companies, make sure to prepare in advance. 

  1. Prepare your booth and materials 

This may seem obvious, but it’s worthwhile to get started on this way in advance. Writing marketing materials specifically for the conference, planning the look of your booth, ordering the right SWAG, and more takes time. That’s why you’ll want to start working on this as soon as you decide that you’ll be heading to a specific conference. 

  1. Get the word out

You’ll meet a lot of people randomly at any conference, that’s a given. However, you want to make sure that the right people are looking for you and visiting you at your booth. That’s why you’ll want to post on your social media about the conference, write a blog post, and even add your booth information to your email signature. This makes it as easy as possible for people to look and find you while they’re at the event. 

  1. Do your homework

Are there companies that you want to connect with while you’re attending the conference or trade show? Do your research in advance to see who is going to be at the event, where they are located, and even reach out in advance to plan a time to meet up. 

  1. Consider hosting an event within the conference

Want to make things even more interesting? Create a mini-event for your colleagues and/or customers during the event. Send out invites and welcome people to join you for a lecture, a cocktail event, a demo, or anything else that fits your brand.
