Exhibitions can be a wonderful way in which you can generate quality leads while sourcing the right products for your company in one simple go. Exhibitions, such as China Homelife and China Machinex, are specifically designed to match the right buyers and businesses with the right suppliers and manufacturers. With busy work schedules and limited time to spend hours at exhibitions, we have some handy tips to take into consideration when planning to visit your next sourcing exhibition.
Be strategic with your time management when visiting an exhibition
Spend time on the expo’s website prior to arriving onsite. Have a look at the list of exhibitors showcasing their products and identify who you would like to meet based on your company’s requirements. Ask yourself these questions – Do they fit my requirements? Would they be able to meet my demands and budget?
Online matching-making tools can be extremely useful
Take the time to start communicating with potential exhibitors prior to the show. This will give them the opportunity to fully understand your needs and will allow for a seamless business transaction when you meet face-to-face onsite.
Set up your diary prior to the exhibition’s arrival
Schedule your match-making sessions before you arrive at the exhibition. There will normally be a specific match-making area dedicated to help buyers and suppliers do business onsite.
Keep up-to-date with the latest exhibition information on social media channels
This will give you insight into what you can expect from the exhibition as well as equip you with the tools you need to make the show a great success for both you and your business.
