Pre-Show Know Before You Go!

Posted by Chuck Michel on Jan 11, 2018 9:00:00 AM

 

I have always been a big proponent of pre-show planning, it’s a topic that I often share with customers and or colleagues when discussing their upcoming face- to-face event. I thought I would share my checklist with you, it’s straight forward and I have found it to be on target when discussing one’s strategic approach to exhibiting. Frankly quite often they find the questions to be somewhat enlightening, and often end up with a much different perspective on how to approach the show after some discussion. I call it ‘Know Before You Go’ Why are you Going? Exhibit for the right reason!

Posted by Chandler Renee on Sep 5, 2017 12:02:56 PM

Here at ELITeXPO, we try to be as green as possible. Currently, we are a part of EPA’s Smartway Logistics Program – you can read all about it HERE. To continue our efforts to stay green, we encourage our customers to get paperless invoices. Switching over to paperless emailed invoices not only saves paper, but saves you time searching for that invoice on your desk. The process is quite easy and can be done by the time your coffee is done brewing!

Asset Management - So Much More Than Exhibit Storage

Posted by Chuck Michel on Aug 17, 2017 9:40:42 AM

Are you tired of trying to find everything around your office or warehouse that you need for your next trade show? Do you have to run down to the local "Your Storage Unit" facility every time your company attends an event? Do your event materials return back from your shows dirty or with damage?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you just may need to think about your Asset Management Program.

On Vacation... Uh, Not So Much

Posted by David Mihalik on Mar 27, 2017 2:27:30 PM

You never know when you might be able to help someone. You also never know when you might be able to put your trade show experience to use while away from the office or as the guys I helped incorrectly assumed, "on vacation". I know that most of you who also work in trade shows often are envied by family and friends of all the great resort and vacation cities we are traveling to, envisioning someone of means and class, jet setting around the globe. If you’re like me, in your head you're thinking out loud, "uh, not so much".

Help For Your Event Budgeting

Posted by Heidi Maschmann on Dec 7, 2016 9:03:24 AM

According to a recent CEIR report, the cost of a face-to-face meeting with a prospect at a tradeshow is less than 10% of the cost of identifying and meeting with a prospect in the field. They also require less sales calls to close a sale. The overall savings per prospect are significant. So justifying the value of exhibiting at a tradeshow is easy.

Trade Show Exhibits? Yes... We Can Help You With That!

Posted by Heidi Maschmann on Nov 2, 2016 3:55:23 PM

It's funny to think that some of our customers are still not aware that we offer trade show exhibits for sale and rental. We've been doing so since 2009. I guess when you've been as successful as we have at trade show shipping for nearly 30 years that people see us as just an exhibit logistics company. So, it's our job to make sure that EVERYONE is aware that we offer a full array of trade show services AND products!
