Business Expo and Retail Showcase is a business-to-business trade show presented by Southwestern Energy and hosted by the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce. The daylong event provides exhibitors with both immediate and deferred sales opportunities. According to The Center for Exhibition Industry Research, trade shows are an effective way to market businesses of any size:
72% of show visitors say the show influenced their buying decisions
87% of attendees will share information obtained at an exhibition.
64% of attendees tell at least 6 other people about the event.
It costs 22% less to contact a potential buyer at a show than it does through traditional sales calls.
Trade shows are the one place where small businesses can compete on a level playing field with larger firms.
