    Register Early

    Registration for these events most often occurs months prior to the event itself. By registering early, you will have a competitive edge. Between getting the best spots and the best discounts, you will immediately get the most bang for your buck. Even better, you will also have the rules and regulations of the trade show well in advance.

    By knowing what you must adhere to, you can save on blunders down the line. For instance, if you are only allowed to have five-foot high displays in a certain part of the venue and you made yours six feet tall instead, you will have to remake the display. Knowing what the specifications are can also help give you ideas of how to set up your booth.

    Book Travel Early

    Don’t wait until the last minute to book travel such as transit and hotel rooms. These will fill quickly as many will be in attendance and need somewhere to sleep. By booking ahead and mentioning the trade show, you will also get the best rate available and be able to organize how the day will go far in advance, leading to a much less stressful show day.

    This will also help you and your company better budget. By knowing well ahead what you need to afford, such as transportation between locations or parking, you can be better prepared for what the day will bring.
