Exhibiting your products at a trade show can be a great way to build relationships for your small business. It can help you build your brand and drive sales, through the meaningful exposure to opportunities from highly engaged customers and industry leaders. Whether you’re considering setting up a tent, which we highly recommend, or attending, you’ll reap the benefits of trade shows, including networking, media exposure, and face-to-face interaction.

Modern trade fairs are no different from previous trade fairs. Before the Covid 19 pandemic, trade shows were important events for many companies. After the pandemic, there was a massive change in how companies approach events and trade shows. There’s no doubt that adopting a new way of doing things can be frustrating. But with such change comes exciting opportunities, as explained below.

New rules, new ways

After the pandemic, everything went virtual and raised questions about the state and future of in-person trade shows. Trade shows have benefited businesses, serving as the backbone for product presentation and networking. So when the Covid-19 pandemic introduced restrictions for in-person events, trade shows were impacted financially only by cancellations. In March 2020, the industry had already registered a loss of nearly $22 billion.

The cancellation of 2020’s in-person events has caused attendees and business owners to rethink trade show budgets and the best way to host trade shows. As more and more in-person events return, virtual events are here to stay. So while things could have gone virtual, things could have remained hybrid. So it’s fair to say that the new ways to participate in trade shows are a mix of in-person and virtual elements and should continue to gain traction as the days go by.

Virtual events are beneficial when many attendees can’t make it to an in-person event and save you the cost of booking flights, finding accommodations, and transportation. A successful hybrid event requires the same elements as an in-person trade show paired with a great streaming provider.

Even after the pandemic, the safety rules of the event venue apply. If you are setting up a booth at the in-person trade show, provide adequate ventilation and clean your space frequently. Put measures in place to avoid overcrowding, encourage your visitors to follow health protocols and keep your employees informed of all safety measures.

To participate or not to participate

Some of the questions that may make you wonder whether or not you should attend a trade show are: Is it worth it? Will I get instant sales? Now that you understand how beneficial trade shows can be for your business, the verdict is in to attend.

Your salon experience should be fun, so choose a salon that matches your product line and start planning as soon as possible. Trade shows offer new businesses, present networking opportunities, increase brand awareness and give you the opportunity to learn more about the industry in which you operate.

Marketing at a trade show can be a task. From planning to following up with potential customers can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. But to make it easier for you to reap more benefits, develop a plan to give yourself a clear vision of what you want to achieve. Identify communication channels to announce your presence at an upcoming trade show.

Attractive design

Announce your presence by distributing handouts to confirmed attendees on your website through emails, newsletters, blogs and social media. Attract your audience further with prizes, sweepstakes and online contests to entice them to visit your booth. You can also do a workshop or Q&A session to increase your brand visibility throughout the event.

Find ways to make visitors remember you beyond the trade show by giving customers something to remember you by. You can give your visitors a pen, notebook or promotional material with your contacts. Make sure your booth stands out and attracts potential customers by creating an exciting atmosphere and energy they can’t resist. Create a visually appealing stand and a design that arouses curiosity.

Have the right people on the ground

The last thing you need at a trade show is to invest all your time and money in planning only to end up with the wrong people on the ground. It is not enough to rely on expertise. Personality is just as important.

Trade shows need charismatic and outgoing marketers who know how to keep the booth lively and attract more people. Carefully review your representative in advance, identify them in meetings and during preparatory work to ensure that you are reading from the same page and have the same objectives.

By the end of the third and final day of the 19th parts2clean, it was abundantly clear that industrial parts cleaning requirements are becoming increasingly diverse and demanding, with no end in sight. A major indicator was the tasks and projects that some 2,300 visitors (up around 15% from 2021) brought with them to Stuttgart. The share of trade fair attendees outside of Germany was 25%, with the strongest nations (excluding Germany) being Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and the Poland. “We are pleased with how this year’s parts2clean fair went under the current conditions,” said Hendrik Engelking, Global Director at Deutsche Messe. “Most important to us, however, is that the show attendance was worth it for our exhibitors.” And indeed, because most of the 140 exhibitors from 16 countries who presented their new, improved and established products and services for industrial room and surface cleaning on more than 4,300 square meters of exhibition space, were able to hold very detailed discussions. This was confirmed by Michael Höckh, Managing Director of Höckh Metall-Reinigungsanlagen: “For us it was an extremely interesting trade fair. Our visitors here were massively devoted to finding solutions for the projects they plan to implement in the near future. Often this means making replacement investments in order to meet higher cleanliness requirements.

Commercial audience with a high level of decision-making power and ready to invest

The fact that things were so concrete at parts2clean was due to the exceptionally high percentage of professional visitors (99%), of which more than 95% are involved in operational sourcing decisions. Another value that ensured exhibitor satisfaction at this year’s parts2clean was the investment plans, which were the deciding factor for around 85% of all attendees. This has facilitated a large number of promising leads, such as Dr.-Ing. Günther Schmauz, CEO of acp systems, says: “Although we still have some way to go to reach the number of visitors from the pre-Corona events, this year’s parts2clean went better than expected for us. This year, we have seen changes in the industries of our participants. For example, more than 80% of the discussions on our stand focused on tasks in the so-called high-purity area, for example in the semiconductor supplier industry, electronics, optics, medical technology, defense and sensors, as well as high-tech measurement technology. We were able to make really interesting contacts with domestic and foreign companies here.

Ronald Holzleitner, Head of New Business at Austrian Fronius International, also achieved his company’s trade fair objectives: “We met a highly qualified professional audience from different industries here, were able to present our technologies and products in an optimal after some excellent discussions, have already planned further talks. For Stefanie Borst from the management of Bo-Inno, parts2clean 2022 also went well: “We were very satisfied with our participation in the fair and had the impression that the discussions were even more concrete and intensive than in previous years. . It has become clear that many companies have to meet higher cleanliness requirements. This allowed us to make many new contacts, but we also took advantage of the fair to intensify our cooperation with our partners. This networking aspect was also appreciated by Chuck Sexton, Global Product Line Manager, Industrial at US cleaning products manufacturer Kyzen: “We can always generate top-notch leads at parts2clean. But the fair is also an excellent opportunity for us to establish new contacts with partners and to intensify existing ones.

Strong participation in the specialized forum and presentation of the first FiT2clean Awards

Once again this year, the specialized forum parts2clean was one of the poles of attraction for visitors. In simultaneously translated presentations (German <> English), experts from research, trade associations and industry provided information on a wide range of topics and trends in the field of industrial surface and room cleaning . The presentations were also streamed live on the parts2clean event website. “The overwhelming interest from on-site and online participants shows that there is a great need for information in the field of surface and room cleaning, whether for traditional tasks or new applications, and that the importance of component cleanliness as a product feature and quality factor will continue to grow,” adds Engelking.

Another highlight of parts2clean 2022 was the presentation of the FiT2clean award for outstanding achievement and solutions for a current challenge in industrial parts cleaning, which the Industrial Parts Cleaning Association (FiT) offered for the first time. The €10,000 prize was awarded to the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) for its novel and unconventional approach of using liquid butane gas as an effective and energy-saving cleaning medium. energy. The FiT2clean award is planned for an annual presentation in the future.

It also illustrates how industrial parts cleaning faces an array of new tasks and challenges – which will be the focus of the 20th anniversary edition of parts2clean, taking place September 26-28, 2023 at the Parc des Stuttgart exhibitions. .
