Doing trade shows and finding the next big is easy right? Not according to Bill Smith it’s not...
How do you do a trade show? Usually, one walks the aisle the first day, looking briefly at each booth and moves on if they don’t see at once anything new or of interest. All too often, I have known attendees do that, perhaps stopping at a few they came to see, and then go away saying “I didn’t see anything new or worthwhile”. Little do they realize what they may have missed, often spending thousands of dollars to travel and attend such a show only to get little or nothing out of them.
