4 Tips to Boost Your Tradeshow Experience @AmericasMart in Atlanta Georgia

trade shows workshops Nov 12, 2021

Walking the tradeshow floor with confidence can be the BIG difference between scoring winning wholesale products…

Versus spending endless hours online searching, looking, and ending up right where you first started. You know - when you spend 7+ hours a day, Google-ling vendors or wholesalers that not only carry the product you are looking for but are willing to work with you and your Amazon business. 

Keep reading for my tried-and-true process to Confidently walk the tradeshow floor like a pro.

 Hey hey friends, it’s Kristin. I am so stoked to have you here and have some exciting news to share! 

First the exciting news: 

I’m kicking off the new year by attending the AmericasMart Atlanta tradeshow in January, and I want you to join me!

Plus, I hear many of you want to walk a tradeshow but don’t know where or how to start. 

Let’s face it… tradeshows are overwhelming and intimidating. And when you stop to ponder and overthink, fear starts creeping in, and frustration takes over. Then before you know it, you come up with an excuse to just chicken out.

Well, my friend, you are NOT alone. 

And this is the reason WHY I love walking the tradeshow floor with my students during our Confident Wholesale Bundlers Workshop

Not only are my students learning to cut their research time in half, how to position themselves for long-term success, and provide their buyers precisely what they want…

But the guided tradeshow walkthrough is a CONFIDENCE builder!

In our tradeshow walkthroughs, I, the bundle queen, will walk with you through the tradeshow floor as your guide. You’ll get practice talking to vendors and wholesalers, product demonstrations, and answers to TOP wholesale struggles. BONUS: You’ll get extra support from like-minded individuals who are on the same journey as you.

So if you are looking to...

  • Eliminate any and all concepts of fear,
  • Get product advice and your questions answered by a true expert,
  • Learn top questions to ask vendors at the tradeshow,
  • And forge lasting connections while empowering yourself.

Join me at our Confident Wholesale Bundlers Workshop! I can’t wait to meet you, learn more about your business and your goals.

Now here are my ultimate 4 tips to maximize your Atlanta Tradeshow experience!

TIP #1 - Plan, plan, plan!

In order to maximize your trip and walkthrough experience, take 15 mins a day, do your research and make some plans. Include in your plan questions about product(s), make a list of vendors you may want to meet or do business with, and a product list you may want to see, touch and feel before deciding to sell it in your store. 

TIP #2 - Make Key Connections!

Tradeshows are all about connections. You are forging lasting connections as you are the spokesperson for your business and your customers. So while you speak with vendors at the tradeshow, remember always to keep your customers in mind. You are your customers’ sales agent, not the manufacturers. 

TIP #3 - Gear Up for Writing Orders!

Now, who doesn’t come to a tradeshow ready to buy, buy, BUY! Why not, right?! Tradeshow vendors and manufacturers offer some fantastic specials just during the event, and who doesn’t LOVE a sweet deal. 

But before you go off buying products you like and would love to sell, let’s take a deep breath and a step back. Remember that you are your customers’ salesperson. Purchase products that your customers would be interested in getting, what’s currently selling in the marketing, and not just what you like. 

Need a little hint deciding what products you should keep an eye out for with your customer in mind? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Who is my customer?
  • What are they looking to buy?
  • When is my customer going to use it?
  • Where are they going to use the product bundle I am creating?
  • Why is my customer buying this product?

TIP #4 - Layout the essentials!

Don’t be a packrat. Instead, pack only the essentials you need so you can make the biggest impact during your tradeshow walkthrough. 

Here are some tradeshow essentials every attendee needs:

  • Business cards!
  • Resellers business license or local sales tax number.
  • A calculator.
  • Credit information, including your bank and financial trade references (if applicable).
  • Your positive self! 
  • And last but definitely not least, comfortable walking shoes to walk all of the showrooms.

Without these items, you won’t be able to make and keep connections, make informed purchasing decisions, and much more.
