This is such a tricky question to answer because there could be hundred's of people through the door but none of them is spending money. Conversely, there may only be a few people but they know what they want, they've come with cash in their pockets and their credit cards ready.
Our events run each month and so we are focused on visitors returning and we're proud to say that 78% of our visitors have either been before or someone has recommended they come along.
As an exhibitor, this means that coming along regularly means that you get seen and after a while, people will come along because they know you're there and want to replenish their stock or buy a gift.
On the other hand, at some of the very large annual events, there are often crowds of people, although sometimes the stand prices can be high.
So it's all a bit of a balancing act. Sometimes we're busy and everyone wins, sometimes there aren't many visitors but the sales are much the same - and sometimes it's the other way round!
My advice generally is that being at events is part of your overall marketing and sales strategy and you need to consider if you're coming along to sell as much stuff as you can and leave, or if you are looking to build relationships with clients for a more in-depth strategy.
We aim to keep our table prices as low as possible which means that the financial risk for you is minimal because there is also a bit of a learning curve when you start exhibiting.
