Exhibitions and events are valuable for businesses, because they allow face-to-face communication and offer opportunities for networking.
Exhibitions enable you to meet plenty of people that matter to your business in one place, including existing customers, new prospects, suppliers, advisers, investors, competitors and key figures in your industry.
Networking is an important part of the marketing mix for small businesses. You can use networking to forge productive relationships with key people. Over time, these contacts can become powerful advocates that support and promote your business.
There are many opportunities to meet the right people. Become an active participant in the local community, and attend events aimed at your sector. Your local Chamber of Commerce will be able to point you in the right direction.
