    6 Ways to Get the Most From Your Show Visit

    29 February 2016 News
    It's show time and you'll find previews of three important shows, including Farm Shop & Deli, in the April issue. Shows are where you will find the stock that gives your store that point of difference. Here are six ways to make sure you get the most from the experience.

    * Avoid queues by registering for your show pass. Save money by booking travel and hotel early.

    * Obtain a floorplan, so you can locate your chosen exhibitors quickly

    * Write a bullet-pointed list of the information you need from the exhibitors. This way you avoid distractions and come away with what you need, not a bag of free samples

    * Mornings can be best for business, before the lunch time rush and the torpor of late afternoon

    * Don't spend all day on your feet. Stay alert and effective with short breaks for refreshment

    * Keep your goals in mind at all times. Use your lunch break to check progress and adjust your plans if you need to.
