Why Are Trade Shows So Important To Your Business?

1. Verbal & Non-Verbal Behavioral Styles:  Face-to-face meetings allow members to engage in and observe verbal and non-verbal behavioral styles that aren’t communicated through technological tools, from texting to tweeting, to the telephone, to videoconferencing.

2. Develop Transparency & Trust:  Face-to-face meetings afford participants opportunities to develop transparency and
trust among each other in ways that are not always possible compared to other forms of communication.

3. Judge Integrity, Competencies & Skills:  Face-to-face meetings allow participants to evaluate and judge the integrity, competencies, and skills (e.g. verbal skills) of others, whether that’s a prospect, a competitor or a job candidate.

4. Develop Strong Social Relationships:  Face-to-face meetings allow participants to develop strong social relationships. In an environment where the participants can stand toe-to-toe and shake hands on a deal,
that behavior facilitates social bonding and increases your stature with prospects.  

5. Develop A Sense of Belonging To Organization:  Attending face-to-face
meetings help individuals develop more clear understandings of how they themselves ‘belong’ to the organization in which they work, how they fit in and their relative status among other group members. This speaks not only to interactions with trade show booth visitors that help build your brand (allowing prospects and customers to feel a sense of “ownership” in your organization), but also to the shared group experience of your staff working the trade show together.
