Exhibitor Tips: Increase Your Return on Investment at ION GNSS+

The ION GNSS+  is the world’s largest showcase of GNSS technology, products and services and this year’s best opportunity to showcase your organization at the event, reach new customers, and solidify relationships with existing customers. 

Here are some ways you can start building customer anticipation and traffic for your booth before the Exhibit hall opens:

  • Download the ION GNSS+  Exhibitor Logo and place it on your website: ION has a ready-to-use ION GNSS+ meeting logo for you to use to link your Website to the ION GNSS+  site. Make it easy for your customers to register.
  • Include a P.S. on all outgoing correspondence: “We’ll see you at ION GNSS+ in Miami, Florida! Visit us in booth #[YOUR BOOTH NUMBER HERE]” This lets all your customers know you’ll be there and reinforces it every time they open your mail. 
  • Get the pre-registered attendee list If you haven’t ordered your free pre-registration list, contact for ION today. Send pre-registered attendees on the list a personalized invitation introducing your company and inviting them to see your products at the show. 
  • Add a footer/ signature to your emails: Set your email up to automatically add a message like “Visit us at booth #[YOUR BOOTH NUMBER HERE]” at ION GNSS+ 2018 September 24-28! See you in Miami.” to the bottom of all your email messages. Be sure that everyone in your company with customer contact does the same.
  • Plan a contest: Create a buzz in your booth! It’s easy. Develop a contest with an entry form that customers have to drop off at your booth. Include it with your pre-show mailings. The prize doesn’t have to be expensive – try an item of your merchandise, dinner for two or tickets to a Tampa attraction as the incentive. Be creative with it, and have fun. You’ll be surprised at how much traffic and interest it will drive to your booth. Stand out. Make yourself noticed.
  • Make appointments ahead of time: Be proactive by scheduling appointments, breakfast meetings, dinner meetings, etc. Your customers will appreciate the effort. Send out a list-minute reminder A few weeks before the show, email or mail a message out to all your clients and potential customers reminding them to include a visit to your booth at ION GNSS+ 2018.
