This week, our theme is promotions … how you promote your presence before and during the event. In this interview, guest expert Heidi Thorne shares:
- Ways to incorporate promotional items before and after the show (not just in your booth)
- Tips for avoiding “freebie seekers” in your booth
- A low-tech tool that can make your pre-show promotions stand out
- Advantages of using “digital swag”
During the call, Heidi and I also present this week’s Challenge related to promotions. Want to hear Heidi’s tips (along with all our other experts) and participate in the Challenge?
