Exhibitor Tips: Increase Your Return on Investment at JNC

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

  • Download the JNC Exhibitor Logo and place it on your website: ION has a ready-to-use JNC meeting logo for you to use to link your Website to the JNC 2021 site. Make it easy for your customers to register. Use this logo on your emails, mailings, and marketing pieces to promote your involvement with JNC 2021. Right click on logo and select "Save Image As..." to save the full-size image to your computer.

  • Include a P.S. on all outgoing correspondence: “We’ll see you at JNC 2021 in Covington, Kentucky! 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.
  • 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 JNC 2021, August 24-27, 2021! See you at JNC.” 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 local area 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 last-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 JNC 2021.
