Stand, smile, and engage

The Black Beauty Expo is a trade show which gives the opportunity for you to build relationships within the industry. Stand with a smile to invite people to view your products. Build your reputation by handing out business cards and shaking hands.

Have an open booth design

Avoid obstructing attendees’ view of the products on display. Your goal is to let attendees get close enough to engage with your offerings.

Network with other exhibitors

Another benefit of a trade show is the ability to network with other vendors who are exhibiting. Know that this is not a competition and use the event to make valuable connections.

Be sure to take photos and videos for social media content that can be used to strengthen your reputation as a brand.
