High Quality Trade Show Displays Customized to Your Brand

The Future of Trade Shows: Virtual & In-Person

Participating in trade shows and conferences are the ideal way to strengthen your brand and take your business to the next level.

Up until now, trade shows have been an integral part for all industries; the important building blocks of the industry among them. Sales and marketing managers alike say a trade show is an effective method to generate quality leads and gain in-person trust, but now may have to consider whether their event budgets will decrease temporarily for the coming year.

With the health and safety of exhibitors and attendees in mind, many in the industry had to pivot and make hard decisions. In mid 2020, the first wave of cancelled shows came in and in the blink of an eye it became clear the hits would keep coming. More reports were released indicating COVID-19’s severe impact on trade shows, meetings, hospitality, travel and the overall economy in the U.S.

Now we are entering 2021. While things are slightly better, we still have a long way to go. With new safety measures being put into place across the country, this allows for some shows to make the decision to open back up and for the world to begin doing business face-to-face once again.
