Hello and welcome to Goody Lady, how are you liking the blog so far? Thank you for coming to read and respond on this post. So tell me I would love to know from you, what helps you in making the decision to attend an event, craft fair or even an expo? What plays a role in determining if you go or not? On the business side, what determines for you to decide you would be a vendor at any particular event?
This post is both for a business person, the one who creates, plans and coordinates an event, the business person who decides they will be a vendor at an event and then the most important person who is the crucial part of the event… The Consumer, The Attendee.
QUESTION: You have an event this weekend but none of your product/show pieces or cash & carry have come so your left with 1-2 pieces to show and a laptop. How about if all you have is your starter kit? You have less than ten catalogs and no stock. You can’t get your money back from the event and you don’t want to just “eat it” ….how would you utilize your booth to promote your business that day?

What About You, the Attendee?
- QUESTION: You are at an event, you are first making your rounds to as many of the booths as possible. You want to see who is there and what they have to offer. What draws your attention to someone’s booth? Is it the company name? What about colors, what catches your eyes? You take note of the booths, you scan the booth landscape, now which do you go to first and why? Do you attend an event with the intention of “window shopping” or making some type of purchase. What grabs your attention to buy something? Do you like to attend events because of the free stuff you can get, what about raffles, do you enter them all, some or at least one? Without saying any company names, what creates a situation for you to not even bother with a particular booth? Does more product on the tables draw your attention or overwhelm you? Do you like simple or fully decorated and full of cash and carry products pull you into a booth’s direction? What if the table had no tent, like most other do? What if they only had one to four items on display, what would you think and would you visit the table?
