1. First impression

You can't find a blog post about trade show tips without finding a "first impression" rule as well. First impression rule is a foundation of your every day life, whether you are meeting a new person, or you are being interviewed for a new job. Put your smart phone away for the time of trade show and put a big smile on your face. Look for an eye contact and try to greet visitors that are passing by.


When I first heard that I was going to an exhibition show called Medica which is taking place every year in Dusseldorf I really didn't know what to expect as I am very fresh to this type of business. My co-workers gave me a little heads-up about the enormousness of this particular exhibition show as if they almost wanted to scare me a bit. Luckily I do not get scared that easily so I went there full of confidence.
