Las Vegas Trade Shows
Tips and Traps
Las Vegas is probably one of the best cities anywhere to hold a
trade show in and Las Vegas Trade Shows are often some of the largest.
It is large, has great infrastructure, and many things to do beyond
the show itself.
The COMDEX trade show in November used to be one of the best shows
in Vegas with over 175,000 delegates at its peak. Now the monster
show seems to be the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

Trade Show Tip
Many of your staff may be attending a show for the first time and
they may forget (or maybe you forgot to brief them) that Trade Shows
have a business purpose-and that is to generate new leads or launch
If you have been to a show here, you will know how easy it is to
end up working on a few hours of sleep.
When you are planning your show, you need to remember to include
pre-show training on what is considered acceptable behavior in the
cities you attend.
A few hours sleep might be ok-if you have a method to handle the
fatique that comes with that.
Do you have short shifts in the booth?
Do you have team events for some (but not all) evenings?
Do you have client events scheduled for evenings?
Do you have a hospitality suite?
You may be asking yourself at this point why should it matter if
my team is tired?
Well, if you are tired, you may not find it as easy to stay on
key message with the media.
You might find yourself skipping all of the qualifying questions
you need to ask to find qualitied prospects.
You might find your testiness doesn't impress a key supplier.
So make sure you account for human nature and fatique in your trade
show plan. (You do have a plan don't you?)
