IMPORTANT TIPS TO READ for visitors
The exhibitors are keen to talk to you, so say hello and have a conversation – they will not bite.
To get the most out of the expo – plan to stay for 2-3 hours – and try to have conversations with as many people as possible for around 5 minutes each, so you can build solid connections and see if and how you could do business together.
Do not just walk past exhibition stands, thinking that does not interest me, you do not know who they know, who could assist you with your business. A great process for networking is to “’talk to people and through people (to the other people they know).
Attendees can bring business cards – but do not bring flyers (you can still book a stand to Show-Tell-Sell).’Remember conversations are Two Way – so listen to people and what they have to say.
Do not be aggressive in your sales approach or hog the conversation, the aim is to build relationships and solid leads – so friendly and smiling always wins in sales.
Be clear in your elevator pitch to describe your own business – there are over 700 business owners going and that is a lot of conversations that you could have – so be clear and concise – save your energy.
Have a goal in mind – if you need to target specific businesses – then focus on finding them first out of all of the exhibitors. Time is money – don’t waste it.
Bring money for lunch and to purchase items or a credit card – sorry we do not have ATM facilities at the Expo.
Bring your SMILE – our expos work so well because people have FUN whilst doing business.
Join in the FREE activities to get the most out of the Expo – just say YES and jump on in.
Have a game plan – do not just be a time waster on the day – Show Up and Lets Do BUSINESS
We are so excited you can join us.
Remember : ENTRY IS BY A GOLD COIN DONATION bring a gold coin donation for the charities and assist us with the set up and traffic management of the Expo. Dont scrimp – you get into the expo for FREE so raid the piggy bank if you have to get a few coins together.’We appreciate all of our volunteers and charities that assist us to put this expo on for you.
WHEN TO ARRIVE
Please do not ALL try to turn up at 10am when the Expo opens. Consider arriving throughout the day, keeping in mind the average time spent at our Expos is 3 hours – even to get around the 150+ businesses showcasing and having a chat will take you a few hours to complete.
There is plenty of parking at the venue and all we ask is a gold coin donation that directly goes to Rotary.
FOOD TRUCKS AND LIVE MUSIC
Food trucks and live music operate from 11am to 3pm out the back – you can access this area by the double doors that will be signed FOOD TRUCKS & LIVE MUSIC. Take some time out to sit back and relax and grab a bite to eat in between your sales conversations. Remember bring money as no EFTPOS facilities.
