The trade show industry has changed in recent years
With the rise of the internet, more people are looking at products & services online – which is great – you’re looking at a website now. Because of this there is less need to travel for hundreds & hundreds of miles to a trade show to
find what you are looking for. However, sometimes you really need to see a product “in the flesh” – to touch it – feel the quality - compare it with other products. Also the chance to chat with a “real person” – face to face is often far more illuminating than just browsing a product spec on line.
There are “real people” who still call on businesses every day though – the good old “sales rep”. They have mountains of knowledge & can show you some new products – but they can’t carry “everything” & they can only knock on a few doors each day.
With this in mind the Art & Framing Roadshows were born in 2015. Several like minded companies banded together to create a new type of show that “comes to a town near you”. These new style trade shows are a great opportunity to meet suppliers in a relaxed & friendly atmosphere. There is no admittance charge & no need to register either. With no seminars to dash off to you can arrive when you want & stay as long as you need. There is plenty of free parking & even the refreshments are free, so all you need to bring are your questions & plenty of enthusiasm – we’ll do the rest!!!
The number of exhibitors has increased for 2016 & you can find out all about them by clicking on their own dedicated pages on the Art & Framing Roadshow 2016 website.
