Few business events present as many opportunities to connect with customers one-on-one as trade shows and conferences. In-person events are a big investment, and to get the best return on that investment, it’s crucial to send prospects home with compelling information about your offerings.
As you prepare for your next event, these tips will help you craft a marketing binder that will draw in your audience, make a first-rate impression, and ensure they remember you when they’re ready to do business.
1. Plan your presentation
