5 Trade Show Secrets for Networking Success

Blending digital networking with face to face meetings can deliver extended conversations and strengthened relationships. Here are some tips on how to get it right.
Live events have a challenge. Drawing the same volume of attendees as in previous years is now taking more effort than it used to. There is a plethora of experiences and content competing for the prospective participants’ attention. Committed as we are to the unsurpassable value of face to face meetings, the fact remains that event organizers have to work harder and smarter at convincing busy professionals and entrepreneurs to engage with them.

One excellent means of delivering on your event’s promise is to use pre-show and post-show matchmaking and recommendations to connect attendees and exhibitors before, during the event.

Setting the Stage for Successful Networking
Here are some essential ingredients that come together to not just save your team considerable time and effort, but also make it easier for your event participants to explore viable networking opportunities.

1. Intelligent Matchmaking
Just matching buyers and sellers on demographics and product categories is not sufficient anymore. Demographics are not always reliable or fully updated, and identifying suitable suppliers from one long list isn’t always easy. This kind of matchmaking needs to be supplemented with automatic behavior and action-based matchmaking. Delivering a list of attendees who have directly or indirectly indicated an interest in an exhibitor’s products and services can make it easier for exhibitors to start networking with interested buyers, thus boosting their ROI. Similarly, showing recommended suppliers based on an attendee’s past searches, page visits and planner activity can save them considerable time, and impress them with the value your event is delivering to them.

2. Simplified Scheduling
Numerous user interface interaction studies have revealed the power of ease of use in boosting task completion. Attendees should be able to request and accept appointments with the click of a button, on any device of their choice and from anywhere in the world. Complicated navigation, interfaces and approval processes can negatively affect their experience and discourage them from using the resources provided to them. On the other hand, a digital solution that’s responsive and adaptive, and built on strong usability principles, can significantly boost engagement by encouraging attendees to explore and engage more with the exhibitors’ content.

3. Deeper User-Generated Content
Just providing easy-to-use scheduling features can boost networking but not sustain it. To keep buyers coming back and stay engaged with your event’s brand, show organizers need to leverage the power of user-generated content. Rich content in exhibitor eBooth listings acts like a digital storefront for attendees, who find value in exploring exhibitors’ products, videos, show specials and press releases to learn as much about them in advance as possible. This has an indirect but deep impact in the quality of business networking that your event can deliver to attendees.

4. Deeper Education and Promotion
It’s imperative to inform and update your event participants on the matchmaking and networking resources available to them. Education is necessary not just for the first timers, but for all participants. Even seasoned veterans may need to be made aware of the capabilities and advantages of a new technology or process. Using every means of communication possible, on every popular channel available, show organizers can considerably increase the adoption and usage of their networking features.

5. Designated Spaces
Trying to stay focused and network successfully in a busy and crowded booth is not always conducive. Other attendees may try to vie for your attention or other conversations may make it harder to listen to questions and answer them correctly. To facilitate productive networking, expo and meeting organizers should consider creating designated meeting zones where the participants can meet at the appointed time and concentrate exclusively on fruitful introductions and conversations. This is especially true if your event is organizing a hosted buyer or speed networking program, which require intensive concentration and participation for each meeting.
In Conclusion

To create more value for your attendees and exhibitors, and to keep bringing them, show organizers should focus on delivering a high-quality networking experience. By automating processes, using intelligent matchmaking and focusing on adoption, eventprofs can significantly strengthen the value proposition of their event, making it the centralized hub that draws the entire industry to it, year after year.

Exhibit Design  All exhibit displays should be designed and erected in a manner that will withstand normal contact or vibration caused by neighboring exhibitors, hall laborers, or installation/dismantling equipment, such as fork lifts. Displays should also be able to withstand moderate wind effects that may occur in the exhibit hall when freight doors are open. Refer to local building codes that regulate temporary structures.  Exhibitors should ensure that any display fixtures such as tables, racks, or shelves are designed and installed properly to support the product or marketing materials to be displayed.  All Multi-Level and Covered exhibits require a plan that is signed, sealed (with official seal) and dated by a registered architect or engineer and a certificate of flame retardant materials submitted to show management and the facility at least 60 days in advance.  Helium balloons are NOT allowed on the show floor at any time and should not be used in the design of the exhibit space or be distributed.

Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC)  If exhibitors wish to use an Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC), the following rules and regulations must be adhered to by the exhibitor and the EAC. THESE RULES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. The exhibitor must complete the online exhibitor appointed contractor form. Completion of this form qualifies as acceptance that the EAC will abide by all rules and regulations, especially those as contained herein for EAC.   The EAC shall refrain from placing an undue burden on the official service contractors by interfering, in any way, with the official contractor’s work.  The EAC will not solicit business at the event.  The EAC is responsible for adhering to all rules and regulations requiring badging. EAC must wear badges at all times.  If the EAC, in any way, disrupts the orderly conduct of business by any of the official contractors, or impairs the smooth installation and dismantling of the event, the EAC will immediately cease such disruption or be removed from the event site. Show management will have the final decision in such instances.  The EAC who provides installation and dismantling services will be sent the proper information from show management upon receipt of request by the authorizing exhibitor.  Show management will give authorization to the EAC to provide installation and dismantling services to the exhibiting firm upon receipt of:  Certificate of insurance for workers’ compensation and employers’ liability, comprehensive general liability and automobile liability insurance.  The workers’ compensation and employers’ liability insurance must provide a minimum limit of (recommended $500,000 USD) and meet the requirements established by the state in which the event is being held.  Comprehensive general liability coverage must provide at least (recommended $1 million USD per occurrence /$2 million USD general aggregate) in coverage and shall name show management, the sponsoring associations, the event owners, the official contractor and the facility as additional insured.  Automobile liability should include all owned, non-owned and hired vehicles with limits of (recommended $500,000 USD) bodily injury and (recommended $500,000 USD) property damage liability.  Show management must receive the certificate of insurance no later than 30 days prior to the commencement of installation.  In performing work for their clients, the EAC shall cooperate fully with the official contractors and shall comply with existing labor regulations or contracts as determined by the commitments made and obligations assumed by show management in any contracts with the official contractors.  Failure to comply with these regulations will result in refusal or loss of authorization to perform services and immediate removal from the event site.  Services ordered on behalf of exhibitors by EAC’s or other third parties must be so authorized in writing by the exhibitor. Payment for all services will be the responsibility of the exhibitor.

Install/Dismantle  Installation and Dismantlement  Materials for an exhibit display may not be delivered to the exhibition facility before the official move-in period.  Under no circumstances will the delivery or removal of any exhibit or portion thereof be permitted during the exhibition without permission first being secured from show management.  No displays may be dismantled prior to the official closing of the exhibition. Such activity will be considered a violation of these rules and regulations.  All materials must be removed from the facility by the end of the official move-out period. (Official move-in, move-out, and exhibition dates and times may be subject to change. Show management will notify exhibitor of official dates, times and any changes.)  Show management reserves the right to assign specific days to exhibitor for delivery of equipment and/or display items. Failure by exhibitor to abide by such delivery schedule shall obligate that exhibitor to pay all charges incurred for labor as a result of the disruption of the delivery schedule.  Labor  Labor jurisdiction and union rules are determined by the facility, state and municipality in which the exhibition is held. Where union contracts exist with service contractors, exhibitor must acknowledge union jurisdictions and conform to those contracts and use of the union personnel involved.  Skilled and unskilled labor as needed or required can be arranged through the official service contractor at established rates.  Arrangements should be made in advance.  Exhibitors who are eligible to set up their own display according to union guidelines must typically utilize full-time employees of the company and proof of employment may be requested.  Review the exhibitor manual for specifics on union guidelines and restrictions.

EXHIBIT BUILDING    Exhibit building labor is done by JKJCC Apprentice and Journeyman Carpenters. They are responsible for uncrating and crating exhibits, building and dismantling all exhibits and booths, laying carpets and other floor covering, hanging nonelectric signs, banners and drapes, and distributing contractor owned or leased furniture and other standardized equipment. The following exceptions apply: NEW! Exhibitors may install and dismantle their exhibits, and lay carpet/floor covering as long as:  Booth size is 250 square feet or less and work can be done without tools. Exhibitors may unpack, pack and arrange their merchandise and products in their exhibit. Those performing the work above must be employees of the exhibiting company and must carry identification to verify that fact.  Exhibitors may be able to erect and dismantle “pop-up” displays and booths which do not exceed twenty-five (25) feet in length and can be erected and/or dismantled by employees of the exhibiting company, using no tools. A “pop up” display at the Javits Center is defined as a self-contained unit which can be hand-carried by one employee. The Center may issue more detailed rules on this from time to time.

Exhibitors may unpack, pack and arrange their merchandise in their exhibit.
When unsafe set-up or dismantle conditions exist, JKJCC may elect to suspend the exceptions listed above and Javits exhibit building labor will complete the work at exhibitor expense.

FREIGHT MOVING    Freight moving labor is handled by JKJCC Teamsters. They are responsible for loading and unloading, moving and delivering exhibitor freight to and from the exhibitor’s booth. However, certain items may be brought into the JKJCC through the front of the building by exhibitors. If your POV (personally owned vehicle) fits one of the descriptions listed below and there is a qualified driver with the vehicle at all times, you may carry certain items into the JKJCC. Suitable vehicles for the self-service hand carry unloading procedure are:
 Automobiles  Mini vans  Econoline vans  Sport Utility Vehicle Box/cube trucks and vans, or trailers hitched to the above vehicles are prohibited in the self-service hand carry unloading areas. There must be someone representing the exhibitor with the vehicle at all times. There is a 30 minute unloading and loading time. All items brought in through the front of the building must fit into the following categories:
 An exhibitor may hand carry items or use nothing larger than a two-wheeled baggage cart (rubber or plastic wheels only) to move items.  Hanging clothes racks with four wheels are allowed for moving hanging garments.  Exhibitors must use the doors and routes designated by show management.  The persons moving items must have identification showing that they are employees of the exhibiting company.

JAVITS CENTER REMINDS CUSTOMERS ABOUT HAND CARRY POLICY TO MINIMIZE TRAFFIC CONGESTION 
The Javits Center is the busiest convention center in the United States, and as a result, their operations can have a major impact on the surrounding community. As Manhattan’s West Side continues to evolve with new developments, clients of the Javits Center must make every effort to minimize our impact on neighboring streets during move-in and move-out periods.
Recent traffic congestion concerns around the Javits Center have increased traffic enforcement by City agencies. In order to alleviate these concerns, the Javits Center is re-issuing their hand carry policy to all concerned. The hand carry policy, which is outlined below, is designed to maximize exhibitor move in and minimize traffic congestion.
Exhibitors are reminded that the west side of 11th Avenue is officially designated a City bus lane, and vehicles illegally parked will be subject to a fine and/or vehicle towing by the New York City Police Department (NYPD). For move-in and/or move-out periods during large trade shows, the Javits Center will often request assistance from the NYPD to facilitate curbside standing of personal vehicles and small vans along the west side of 11th Avenue between West 34th Street and West 40th streets. However, this does not grant immunity from potential ticketing or vehicle towing to customers who ignore the regulations established by the Javits Center in conjunction with the NYPD and other regulatory agencies.

The Javits Center Hand Carry Policy is as follows:

Approved During Hand Carry Operations:
 Individuals moving these items must be employees of the exhibiting company and must carry identification to verify their position;  Exhibitors moving items must use doors and routes designated by event management;  Hand-carried items can be brought in through the front of the building (east side) and at specified times, the north side, as long as traffic regulations are obeyed;  Exhibitors may use nothing larger than a two-wheeled baggage cart (plastic or rubber wheels only) to move their items;  Hanging clothing racks with four wheels are allowed for moving hanging garments;  Pop-up displays – equal or less than 10 feet in length and capable of being carried by hand by one person – may be brought into the building; and  The Javits Center reserves the right to search any box, bag, container, crate, etc. to ensure full compliance with the building’s regulations.

Prohibited During Hand Carry Operations:
 Power tools, ladders or any other type of carpenter/construction equipment are not permitted in the building, unless specific written approval is obtained in advance;  Any freight from a vehicle larger than an Econoline van;  Any freight moved on equipment larger than a two-wheeled baggage cart;  Any freight that cannot be hand carried by one person; and  Any freight moved by a moving or freight company, contractor or any persons other than Javits Center freight handlers or direct employees of an exhibiting company engaged in approved hand carry operations.
On the west side of 11th Avenue between 34th Street and 40th Street:
 Hand carry operation hours are specific and designated by event management;  Loading and unloading of vehicles is limited to vehicles no larger than an Econoline van;  All vehicles are allocated 30 minutes, and the time limit will be strictly enforced;  All vehicles must be parked alongside the curb, and double parking is strictly prohibited;  All vehicles must be attended at all times by a licensed driver;  Parking or standing on the east side of 11th Avenue is strictly prohibited;  Exhibitors recommend pack all exhibit items before staging a vehicle curbside; and  Failure to follow the above regulations may lead to a fine and/or vehicle towing.
On the Inner Roadway along 11th Avenue:

 Hand carry operation hours are specific and designated by show management;  Access granted to exhibitors only during a specified time frame  Access granted to exhibitors on a first-come, first-serve basis;  Only vehicles with two licensed drivers will be granted entry;  All vehicles must be attended at all times by a licensed driver;  Loading and unloading of vehicles is limited to vehicles no larger than an Econoline van;  All vehicles are allocated 30 minutes, and the time limit will be strictly enforced;  Recommend exhibitors pack all exhibit items before parking a vehicle; and  Any vehicle left unattended will be towed at the owner’s expense.

7 Key Takeaways from my First Trade Show

As your business grows, the focus shifts from building the product to positioning it within the market. Exhibiting at a trade show is a natural next step in building visibility and credibility as a company. It also provides you with the opportunity to showcase your product and the chance to network with qualified prospects.

That very question – whether trade shows provide enough ROI to offset the costs, both monetary and time-wise – is the main concern for most companies thinking of exhibiting. Setting clear expectations and goals for what you want out of the experience will help you evaluate your success after the event. Whether it’s the number and quality of generated leads or the overall impact of your presence and branding, define your metrics to keep your team focused and your investment worthwhile.

Despite my initial concerns, exhibiting at Shop.org turned out to be a valuable experience. Here are 7 key takeaways from our first trade show as an exhibitor:

 

 

  1. The opportunities are strong…

Trade show organizers are quick to extol the benefits of networking and gaining face time with prospective clients. They’re not wrong: not only are trade shows pre-screened with people who are willing to pay to attend, attendees go into the event ready to speak to vendors and exhibitors. What’s more, 81% of trade show goers have buying authority, which makes the interactions even more valuable. Make sure to research the trade show and its attendee list so you can leverage those opportunities to the fullest.

  1. …But be prepared to work for attention.

It can be hard to see beyond the walls of your own booth space as you gear up for the event. Your team will be focused on the details, so make sure you take a step back to think big picture. Don’t forget that your booth, no matter the size, is just one of hundreds – and that all the exhibitors there have similar goals. Realizing this before you get to the event will help you guide your team on ways to stand out from the crowd.

     3.    Rely on creativity over gimmicks and giveaways.

Big-ticket raffles are part of the trade show experience, but don’t rely on gimmicks and giveaways to generate traffic. Instead, trust your team’s ideas and let them get creative. When a team member suggested Nerf guns and a laminated target as a way to engage passerby, I was skeptical. It turned out to be an irresistible challenge for most attendees who walked by, and was by far our most effective way of getting people to speak with us.

  1. Build relationships over giving the hard sell.

It’s easy to slip into sales mode when speaking to attendees, but keep in mind that they’re inundated with pitches throughout the conference. By having my team focus on building relationships instead, we were able to nurture quality leads into real contacts. Use the opportunity to start a genuine conversation with the prospective client, which will last longer and yield more results than a sales pitch.

  1. Figure out what works – and what doesn’t.

Trade shows offer a unique chance to receive instant feedback from attendees – and pivot accordingly. For example, at Shop.org, we found that our market was flooded with similar messaging. Attendees said they couldn’t tell apart several different companies who all used the same rehearsed terminology. My team responded by avoiding buzzwords while explaining how we differ from our competitors. Be prepared to roll with the punches – how well and quickly you’re able to adjust can give you the edge when it comes to capturing that lead.

  1. Capitalize on the event by hosting your own.

Attendees are usually from out of town, and welcome the chance to mingle after hours. Using the conference as a platform for your own event will give you more opportunities to network with prospects – as well as keep you memorable to the attendees who stopped by. Our invite-only executive mixer at a local Seattle hotspot was a success due to effective planning: by building the attendee list with key contacts early on, we were able to keep the event exclusive and high-level, which boosted our credibility.

10 Lessons From A First-Time Trade Show Exhibitor

  1. It’s expensive to attend but incredibly valuable market testing. For $5000 (booth, banner, postcards, t-shirts, and travel accommodations) I had four full days of exposure to 35,000 retail buyers from around the country and across the globe! I quickly learned that my product (Dust Panda) was not fully formed yet. I was sad to learn that I would not be recouping the cost of the show, but I realized that this was the perfect place to solicit feedback from the retail industry’s front line.
  2. Buyers aren’t the only ones who attend these shows. Many business consultants, product developers, and national representatives come to the show looking for new products or lines to promote. For someone looking for national distribution, finding a rep at one of these shows could make all the difference. Keep in mind that every relationship will likely come with a price, but there are people out there who can help spread the word, and who will often work on commission or shared profits.
  3. Network! Network! Network! Buyers and agents aren’t the only ones willing to help! There are thousands of exhibitors at these shows looking to connect with like-minded individuals and are willing to talk for free. Many of the distributors and manufacturers I spoke with were solo designers/artists, eager to share their experiences about what it took to get to where they are. Not only did I meet amazing people with incredible ideas, but they were more than happy to provide feedback about how to make my product better and share their tricks of the trade.
  4. Product development is costly, time-intensive, and rarely pays off. Speaking to a product launcher, who was at the show selling his über-successful kids accessory item, he said that he has launched 15 products in 10 years, only three of which have hit it big. Four out of five of his products have failed. And he’s one of the successful ones! Another designer I spoke with has been seeing moderate success with his novelty Valentine’s Day teddy bear which he has been manufacturing and selling for 10 years. It pays the bills, but his product has yet to go mainstream, and therefore he spends his nights and weekends sewing and silkscreening satin heart pillows. Every night. For a decade. Get ready to go into it for the long haul.
  5. Think Marathon not 100m Dash. Most of the developers I met at the show have been doing this on average for five years. Some broke even by year three. Hardly any were profitable before year five. When polled, most designers sunk anywhere from $25,000-$150,000 into a product line before seeing returns! Just creating a plastic mold costs $10,000 in the US. Perhaps less overseas, but then you’re working with a middleman (not for free), you have to import your goods, and you’re dealing with massive order quantities.
  6. Consider attending with a collective. Paying for a 10×10 booth all for myself was important to me before attending, but next year I will try attending the show with a group. Having the purchasing power for a larger space allows for more flexibility and also spreads the cost across a group.
  7. Not every exhibitor knows what they’re doing. I certainly didn’t! Then it became clear to me that there were numerous exhibitors trying to sell ill-conceived products with no clear road to profitability. Some had already sunk $50,000 into inventory and had yet to come up with a way to sell their products, and had not done any market testing!
  8. Consider exhibiting at a trade show before going to production. It’s weird attending a show with three prototypes and no inventory, but it cost less than buying the inventory and I’m glad I exhibited first. My product will be better when I do go to production, and I learned a lot about the art of exhibiting which I’m glad I learned before trying to seriously market my product. When I told fellow exhibitors that I hadn’t “gone to press” yet, many of them were jealous! I am grateful that I waited to print my first batch of products since I realize now that I’m only half way there.
  9. Know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, and know when to walk away. It’s important to accept that our brilliant ideas may not make for brilliantly successful products. Knowing when to quit is just as important as knowing when to persevere, and you can save yourself a lot of time and tens of thousands of dollars by quitting while you’re ahead. I have not internalized this lesson quite yet, but it’s out there. For now, I’m thrilled to continue developing Dust Panda given the overwhelmingly positive response and the experience I had at the gift show.

Press releases

CURVEXPO | Pre-Show Press Release

For Immediate Release

Monday, December 14, 2015 – New York, NY

As December rolls into January, a new sense of motivation and inspiration envelops us.  The New Year is a time for innovation, for newness, and for growth.  Eurovet Americas highly esteems these three values and takes them into consideration while planning each new season of shows. 2016 is no exception, and the CURVEXPO team is looking forward to implementing many developments and updates for both the New York and Las Vegas shows in the upcoming months.  The focus for the New York show was finding the perfect balance of tangible and digital improvements to add to the show, providing the highest quality experience for both the exhibiting brands as well as the attending buyers.  For February, it incorporates an enhanced show experience, starting with new technology such as webinars and a mobile app, a new layout for a more contemporary feel, and Fashion Show and Trend Presentations to bring products from the hanger to life.  Starting in 2016, Eurovet Americas/CURVEXPO will produce two show formats per year in Las Vegas; in February, LINGERIE AND SWIM by CURVENV@MAGIC, and in August, CURVENV@MAGIC.  Since the Fall-Winter shows do not have as much of a swimwear presence, we have decided to change the format for the future February seasons and maintain a high focus on Intimate Apparel.  The February show will then exist within WWD MAGIC, in close proximity to other fashion categories to have the opportunity for buyers to easily visit between various booths within the same space.  For August, the format will be identical to the past August 2015 season; the show remaining a separate entity from WWD MAGIC with its own hall within the Las Vegas Convention Center, allowing attendees from both the CURVENV@MAGIC as well as other WWD MAGIC shows the ability to walk all show floors.

New York attendees who were present at previous shows will see a completely different show for February, one that is filled with visual-based items designed to enrich the attendee’s experience before and during the show.  The new Fashion Presentations that were seen in the August Las Vegas show are being moved to the East Coast; the informal format with models showcasing looks on various platforms in the presentation area is innovative and garners a welcoming environment for all attendees.  These presentations will allow for buyers to see various products and styles in a more “real-world” setting; they are also designed to give coverage to a variety of brands as well as trends and introduce buyers to new lines.  Also featured will be various Trend Presentations to deliver invaluable information about the upcoming season’s trends, highlighting products from the show floor.  Both of these presentations allow for buyers to see an item in several different settings, and if they are interested, they have the option to directly go to that item’s booth to receive more information about the product and to place orders on the show floor.

CURVEXPO believes that the preparation before a trade show is just as valuable as walking the floor during the trade show.  Therefore, we will provide informative webinars before the CURVENY NEW YORK show that will teach you and your team, whether you are an exhibiting brand or a buyer, how to make the most of the marketing tools that are offered on the website. Since the show is so international and there are exhibitors and buyers from all corners of the globe, these webinars will provide attendees with the flexibility to learn about our website on their time.  The brand new mobile application and interactive floor plan are digital advancements that will incorporate seamlessly to your phone, aiding in searching for booth locations, amongst other features.  This will give buyers the opportunity to map out their day and easily find the brands in which they have appointments with.  This will also allow them to effortlessly find the booth of a brand they are interested in visiting.  Finally, visitors to the show will notice the tangible change; the new carpet layout and more streamlined booth signages exude a more modern atmosphere.

Those attending the new LINGERIE AND SWIM by CURVENV@MAGIC will find the show within the halls of WWD MAGIC, in its own dedicated section.  This will allow for exhibitors and buyers alike to enjoy the intimateness that the CURVEXPO shows are notorious for while still being able to experience the crossover to other categories such as Ready-to-wear, accessories, and children’s fashions. At this show, buyers will be pleased to find a curated offering of a variety of Intimate Apparel as well as a select group of swimwear brands; they will also have the flexibility to walk the rest of the show floor if needed. This new format will also introduce boutiques and stores that aren’t primarily lingerie/swimwear focused to a product category that is easy to incorporate into already-established product offerings while increasing Units and price per transaction.  This cross selling increases value to boutiques and large stores alike, keeping inventory fresh and providing clients with new product lines.  The location, while within WWD MAGIC, will still remain extremely near in proximity to the location of the show in August, in the C5 Hall; this will aid in the facilitation between the Spring-Summer and the Fall-Winter seasons.

In August, CURVENV@MAGIC will host over 250 lingerie, swimwear, loungewear, active wear, and men’s underwear brands in one hall, comparable to the August 2015 show.  Here, the show will incorporate a sleek and modern design not unlike the feel of the New York show to maintain a similar aesthetic.  The separate show floor while still remaining connected with WWD MAGIC not only supports the intimate business relationships between brands and buyers that the CURVEXPO shows are notorious for, but also gives everyone attending the show access to the RTW retailers by maintaining a close proximity to the rest of MAGIC (and an all-inclusive pass to the rest of the shows).  Together with the February show, the two formats create the most exhaustive reunion of these categories the West of the Americas.  Due to this, Intimate Apparel and Swimwear brands have just as many reasons to come exhibit as retailers from specialty, online and department stores, resorts and spas have to come to buy.

LEED-approved Javits Center

Link to The Javits Center’s Announcement

 

LEED-approved Javits Center drawing crowds – and flocks

LEED-approved Javits Center drawing crowds – and flocks

New York’s Javits Center has achieved LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Convention Center Operating Corporation president and CEO Alan Steel announced the certification was awarded following the completion of a massive renovation.

ggggggggggggggggggggg

The green roof is a haven for birds and an eco-feature that’s saving money.

Located on Manhattan’s West Side, the Javits Center is considered the busiest convention center in the United States, supporting more than 17,000 jobs and generating up to $1.8 billion in economic activity for the Empire State.

Led by the New York Convention Center Development Corporation, FXFOWLE, Epstein and Tishman Construction, an AECOM Company, the renovation has reduced the building’s energy consumption by 26 percent, saving energy costs and improving the area’s quality of life.

The building’s signature feature — a nearly seven-acre green roof — is the country’s second largest of its kind and has become a sanctuary for area wildlife, including hundreds of bats, birds and bees.

“The Javits Center has become a model of sustainability for buildings throughout the region, and I would like to thank the U.S. Green Building Council for recognizing such an achievement,” said Steel.

“Our mission has always been to support New York’s economy, but with our recent improvements, we are now supporting our community in a new way.”
Empire State Development (ESD) President, CEO & Commissioner Howard Zemsky said, “The Center’s new ‘green’ features reduce energy consumption and create wildlife habitats in the heart of Manhattan.”

According to Bruce Fowle, founding principal, FXFOWLE, the Javits Center’s original building was ahead of its time technologically, but it was fraught with problems.

“Our goal was to retain the integrity and vision of the original design while capitalizing on opportunities to reinvent, revitalize, and sustain this dynamic, world-class facility,” said Fowle.

Funded by a public-private partnership, the $463 million renovation project provided a significant upgrade to the Javits Center’s infrastructure, improving the aesthetics of the facility while enhancing its overall operations and services to customers.

More than 100 energy-efficient HVAC units were installed, as well as 300,000 square feet of new terrazzo, a new food court in the Crystal Palace, energy-efficient lighting and a dozen renovated restrooms.

During the five-year renovation project that was completed in 2014, the Javits Center remained fully open at all times as staff and construction managers worked together to coordinate construction operations around the busy event schedule.

With the installation of both new and upgraded fixtures, the Javits Center achieves a 33 percent reduction in Regulated Potable Water annually, per LEED 2.2. That amounts to 2.9 million gallons of water saved annually. These savings equate to drinking water for up to 1,000 people for the duration of one year.

77 percent of construction waste was diverted from the landfill, per LEED 2.2. Of 9,865 tons of waste generated, 7,567 tons were diverted.

The Javitz Center got a green renovation

The Javits Center got a green renovation

The curtain wall was replaced with a combination of solid stainless steel panels and glass that reduced the reflectivity from 35 to eight percent and included a ceramic frit pattern that reduced solar gain while creating a visual obstruction for the birds.

With more than 6,000 new, bird-friendly glass panels installed, bird collisions decreased by 90 percent, allowing the building to transform into a unique habitat for area wildlife atop its green roof.

As a result, the building has received accolades from the National Audubon Society, New York City Audubon, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Building Owners and Managers Association.

Known as the “Marketplace for the World,” the Javits Center was originally designed by I.M. Pei & Partners and opened in 1986. The facility has 840,000 s/f of flexible exhibition space, 102 meeting rooms and four banquet halls.

Optimize Every Booth Exchange

4 Ways to Optimize Every Exchange in Your Booth

Every trade show exhibitor knows that a compelling yet informative trade show display is a must for events. While this is an important factor for your events, there are other factors that play a big role in your exhibiting success. The following tips will help you make the most of every interaction in your booth.

1. Train Your Staff to Engage With Customers, Not Pitch to Them

Although booth staff wardrobe and a well-rested and energize team is important, the interactions are what matters most. It’s not what they will wear, but what they will say, to potential clients and leads. While the goal of exhibiting is often to generate sales, pitching what you can offer before engaging and listening to the needs of an attendee makes for a very poor impression. Train your staff on how to effectively engage and converse with attendees and how to focus on the relationship rather than a sales pitch. This will optimize every exchange that happens in your booth and will most likely lead to better leads.

2. Notice Body Language

Posture and overall body language will either invite or deter attendees from your booth before you probably have a chance to say anything. Work with your booth staff and remind them of the importance of body language and nonverbal communication. Engage attendees by smiling, standing instead of sitting, and keep your arms unfolded. Practice with them as needed, so they understand how to appear inviting and welcoming to ensure that guests won’t feel overwhelmed or a burden when entering your space.

3. Refrain from Pitching too Soon

Leading with a product pitch is a sure way to turn attendees off and lose your business fast. Skilled salespeople understand how to have a genuine conversation that casually pinpoints important information (such as prospective client’s needs/interests) in an organic way. Work with them to refrain from having too many yes or no questions and instead help them rely on open-ended questions that keep the conversation moving while they effectively qualify visiting attendees. Listen to the client first, then talk about how you can help.

4. Deliver a Solid Product Demonstration

Even the best opening dialogue will quickly unravel if your team doesn’t know how to deliver a confident product demonstration. It’s important to work with your staff so that each member knows how to demo your product or service accurately. Don’t just focus on the presentation part of the demonstration; work with each individual employee to ensure that he or she understands the many features offered by the product being demoed. Giving them ample time to practice will not only ensure that their demonstration proceeds without a hitch, but that they are prepared to answer any questions posed by their live audience.

JAVITS MAKEOVER & EXPANSION

JAVITS MAKEOVER – $1.5B EXPANSION PLANNED FOR CENTER

The Javits Center is planning a $1.5 billion expansion that will double the exhibit space and add a grassy rooftop park, a new report says. The expansion would also add a fifth-floor ballroom overlooking the Hudson River and a 40-story hotel, Crain’s New York Business says. Political, business and community leaders agree that expanding the center is crucial to the Big Apple’s economy, the weekly says. The Javits Center has dropped to 14th in exhibit space nationwide and is too small to accommodate 43 of the largest 200 conventions. Meanwhile, new centers are going up in Washington and Boston. But financing the expansion remains a problem, Crain’s says. While the center is controlled by the state, the Pataki administration has always insisted that the city pay a big portion of the cost of the project, and the state and city aren’t close to reaching an agreement. The center now runs from West 34th to 39th streets between 11th and 12th avenues. Under the expansion, there would be a new building that would run to 42nd Street. The new building would be five stories high, one more than the existing structure. Exhibit space would nearly double to 1.3 million square feet. Meeting space would increase tenfold, to 300,000 feet. The hotel would be built at the corner of 42nd Street and 11th Avenue on land owned by developer Larry Silverstein, who holds the World Trade Center lease. Javits officials say Silverstein is willing to sell. Center facts * 745,860 feet of exhibit space * Ranked 14th in terms of exhibit space * Loses dozens of conventions to other cities each year * Expansion has been proposed since 1995 * Proponents say expansion would pump $1.5 billion a year into city’s economy.

Here are some of the stamps and souvenir sheets issued honoring those international shows.

Invited Displays

This page will feature details about the Court of Honor, world-class rarities, special  and postal administration exhibits.

We are pleased to announce that philatelic gems will be available for viewing during World Stamp Show-NY 2016 in a special section on the show floor presented by members of the Club de Monte-Carlo de la Philatélie. Details about the organization can be found at http://www.monacophil.eu/.

The Club was formed in 1998 after a highly successful exhibition of “100 of the World’s Rarest Stamps and Philatelic Documents” in honor of the seven century reign of the Grimaldi dynasty in the Principality of Monaco. The institutions and private collectors that participated in that event decided to repeat their efforts, which continues to this day allowing their gems to be displayed on a regular basis around the world. A complete list of the rarities will appear on the WSS-NY 2016 web site when arrangements have been finalized.

About the Exhibition

World Stamp Show-NY 2016 was selected by the American Philatelic Society (APS) to be the once-in-ten year international philatelic exhibition hosted by this country. The APS is the national stamp collecting organization in the U.S.

       
Several thousand competitive exhibit frames from beginning to advanced levels featuring some of the rarest philatelic material on the planet will be on display at World Stamp Show-NY 2016.

a Better Exhibiting Experience

6 Ways to Create a Better Exhibiting Experience

 

When you exhibit at a trade show, you are not only competing with your competitors, you are competing against every single exhibitor. So, how do you stand out?

Many companies use the same tactics to attract attention – lead retrieval units, models, interactive activities, etc.  But, there are smarter ways to approach trade shows that will make you stand out from everyone else, and leave a lasting impression on the mind of visitors.

#1 Ask open ended questions and break the ice. Attendees often walk the trade show floor with wandering eyes and thoughts. Your goal is to engage prospective clients. If attendees are approached aggressively, they tend to be annoyed or feel defensive and leave. If they’re ignored, that is even worse. You never know who is passing you by—that person could be a big decision-maker. To engage prospects, ask a non-threatening question like, “What are you hoping to get out of the show?”

#2 Plan ahead. Before attending the show, take an afternoon to go over key strategy and main points with your staff. Be sure they each have a unique 30-second elevator speech prepared that highlights your product or company energetically but non-aggressively. Remember though, don’t give this pitch until you have something that the prospect could actually need.

#3 A first impression will be a lasting one. Try and do something different than the average trade show exhibitor. Whether that means constructing unique signage and going beyond industry or branded color schemes, or hosting unique interactive activities or demos in your booth, don’t be afraid to be bold.  Give attendees something they won’t be able to resist as they walk by.

#4 Intensify your product displays. If you are highlighting a product in your booth, make it noticeable. Use lighting and place it in a location at a different height from your marketing materials. Attendees are at the show to see what you’re offering, so get their attention. If you are featuring a particular product or item, make sure you bring more than one to the show. Anything can happen in transit or even on the show floor.

#5 Make an action plan for follow up. Plan your method for following up prior to the show and make it easy for your booth staffers. Digital scanners are often used as well as tracking or customized apps for lead generation. But, if additional details are not captured, that lead will not be qualified.  Write any pertinent information and what you promised the client in your lead notes. Things like, “follow up immediately with phone call” or “requested product brochure and wants pricing” so that your sales reps know exactly what the customer was promised. Be sure to record any information that will assist you or your sales team in prompt and detailed follow up after the show.

#6 If you’re not using social media, you are missing out. Create a hashtag for your presence and give followers and attendees compelling reasons why they’d want to come visit your booth. Maybe you are offering a special giveaway, a new product announcement, or even the opportunity to be the first to have access to new data. Make your posts personal, and engage with your followers one-on-one. Promo or teaser videos or even pictures of planning and set up are enticing to followers. Be sure to promote your hashtag during the show, or use the event’s hashtag if one is available.

A successful trade show is dependent upon proper planning, execution and follow-up.  Even more important is the positive attitudes and communication among your booth staff.  Give your attendees something to remember, and if they have fun doing it, you are sure to be a success!

Interior Design – NYNOW Article

Everything Awesome You Missed at NYNOW

As summer winds down, NY Now marks an opportunity for exhibitors both to show off what they’ve been working on since design week and to ease back into the swing of things as buyers place orders in anticipation of the holiday season. Last week, from August 16–19, the latest edition of the biannual tradeshow at New York’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center saw a mix of designers, brands, and manufacturers, including a number of our longtime favorites alongside a few up-and-comers.

The standouts continue to explore the tactility of materials in new and interesting ways, typically with a pared-down aesthetic—geometric, sculptural, or both—that emphasizes form and function alike. Beyond Tom Dixon‘s glistening booth, copper and brass remain popular and versatile in the hands of London-based Beyond Object, who exhibited the newly available Desktop Collection, and Christopher Gentner, whose Chicago-made brass products were among the noteworthy debuts. His counterpart Felicia Ferrone had a similarly strong showing, with new lighting, sconces, and glassware.

Meanwhile, Iittala‘s new art collaborations (with Markku Salu, Anu Penttinen, and Aalto+Aalto) nicely complemented its imminently affordable tableware, showcasing the Finnish brand’s longstanding expertise in glass craftsmanship. Scandinavian kitchenware mainstay Stelton unveiled the handsome new Horizon design for Bernadotte & Kylberg’s Stockholm collection of cold-enamel-and-aluminum vessels.

Best known for their cast-concrete stools and ceramics, Brooklyn’s Souda has expanded their material palette to include marble, in the form of a new mirror and a mix-and-match tray. Similarly, Rebecca Finell has quickly made a name for herself following the launch of her eponymous brand, Finell, at NY Now in January 2014. From the debut collection of tableware to the origami-like bags, the Austin, Texas-based designer continues to evolve with the launch of the new stacking dinnerware, made from a blend of porcelain and bone china.

And among the countless coasters and trivets—understandably popular among independent designers—the ceramic mug+coaster by another Texas-based designer stood out. Best known for his “shoe pots,” Wyatt Little was  one of the dozens of talented young designers in the jam-packed American Design Club booth; his new accordion-like coasters are paired with mugs with the same shape on the bottom such that they mesh together (either can be used on its own).

NYNOW – Design & Color Trends

NY NOW’S “OPEN HOUSE” DISPLAY PREVIEWS DESIGN & COLOR TRENDS
Project Partnership with Pantone and Progressive Business Media


WHITE PLAINS, NY, April 17, 2015… Key trends in home and lifestyle design and color will be showcased in an exclusive “Open House” display to be presented at the summer 2015 edition of NY NOW®, the Market for Home+ Lifestyle, to be held August 15-19, at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.  The colors and concepts, as forecasted by the Pantone Color Institute, will be brought to life in a product display curated by Progressive Business Media editors and explored in more detail in a special on-site seminar.

“NY NOW has always delivered emerging trends to its audience and this Open House display cements our emphasis on being at the cutting-edge of design and color trends,” said Scott Kramer, NY NOW co-director and vice president, “we hope seeing these themes translated into product will excite attendees and help them source products they might otherwise have missed.”

Now in its fourth annual iteration, the 2015 Open House display will showcase four key themes – Bijoux, Ephemera, Footloose and Mixed Bag – taken from the PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2016 color forecast. Editors from Home Accents Today, Home & Textiles Today, HFN and Gifts and Decorative Accessories, will review exhibitor submissions in each of these categories and select products most representative of each trend for display.

Trend descriptions follow:

Trend #1: Mixed Bag

Eclectic patterns and prints drawn primarily from diverse cultures and a multi-national influence, when used together produce a dynamic and eye-arresting array of colors and combinations. Violet and florid orange hues are offset somewhat by a sugary ginger shade, while a sultry hot pink and robust wine tone are intriguingly complemented by a plush, mossy yellow-green.

Trend #2: Ephemera

Softly tinted, breezy, lighter than air, and as transitory as an evanescent bubble, Ephemera expresses a lightness of color that is often described as pastel. The delicacy of the shadings speaks volumes about its translation into the softness of tone and touch. Colors such as Wan Blue, Pale Peach, Pink Dogwood, Tender Yellow, Orchid Ice, Frosted Almond and a clarifying white called “Cloud Dancer” more than aptly describe these disarmingly charming tints.

Trend #3: Bijoux

From the French, Bijoux literally means “jewels” a fitting title for a palette that gleams with drama and intensity. The light reflective quality expressed in this grouping lends itself beautifully to pellucid transparencies in glass, resins, acrylics, mosaic tile and various lighting effects. Jewel tones such as Prism Pink, Amethyst, Topaz and Amber Yellow are artfully reflected or mirrored when juxtaposed next to equally striking tones of Violet, Dark Citron, Ember Glow, Rich Gold and a taupe that is one of the complex colors found within a tiger’s eye.

Trend #4: Footloose

Expressing the need to throw off the constricting schedules of everyday lives and simply enjoy the freedom of the outdoors, Footloose showcases the pleasurable pursuits that bring recreation and relaxation to life. Colors make for capricious combinations like Winter Pear and Strawberry Pink; Blazing Orange, Deep Periwinkle and Meadow Green, in addition to vacation-destination blues and blue-greens with tempting names like Capri and Vallarta Blue.

The “Open House” trend display, which is located in the North Concourse at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Center, will be open Saturday, August 15, through Wednesday, August 19, 2015, during all NY NOW Market hours. A complete list of products selected for the display will be available in late June.

A related seminar, Open House Seminar – What’s Hot In Home, sponsored by Progressive Business Media and Pantone, addressing color and design trends presented in the Open House display, will be presented on Sunday, August 16, at 8:30 am. Speakers will include Warren Shoulberg of Progressive Business Media, Laurie Pressman of the Pantone Color Institute and others.  Information and registration will be available online at www.nynow.com/programs, after May 1.

Pantone is the global color authority and provider of professional color standards for the design industries. Today Pantone’s universal language of color is used by 100 million design professionals worldwide to access color trends, communicate color choices and control consistency of color across every imaginable surface, texture, material and finish. Through the Pantone Color Institute Pantone continues to chart future color direction and study how color influences human thought processes, emotions and physical reactions.

Progressive Business Media is the leading business-to-business media resource in the home furnishings industry, offering print publications, online editions, conferences, events, research, marketing services and more. Its titles include Gifts and Decorative Accessories, HFN, Home Accents Today, Home & Textiles Today, Furniture Today, Casual Living Today and Kids Today with more than 100,000 industry readers in print and online.

Toy World Exhibit Opens

Worth a Visit: Toy World Exhibit Opens Dec. 6

Santa dolls from different cultures are just part of the collection on display at the Yorktown Community and Cultural Center

Worth a Visit: Toy World Exhibit Opens Dec. 6

From the Yorktown Museum

The Yorktown Museum’s Holiday display will include toys from around the world, old and new. Santa, dolls, bears, toys and gifts from different countries will be highlighted to show how each country has a unique approach to the same subject.

Dolls showing foreign costumes and Santa Clauses in the traditional garb of many of the countries of the world will be only a few of the things to see this holiday season.

The Sleepy Hollow Doll Club and other friends of the Museum will share some of their treasures and creations too.

Just in time for the opening of Toy World we have been given a MAGNIFICENT collection of model soldiers. (The donor wishes to remain anonymous). Be sure to see this wonderful display. It is so in keeping with our Toys of the World exhibit. Hundreds of model soldiers from dozens of countries make a very colorful addition to our collection – they include Indian war elephants, Zulu warriors and the Coronation coach of Elizabeth II and will give men, women and children something to ah over.

Disney is not the only place with a “Small World”. Be sure to come see the Yorktown Museum’s Toys of the World this holiday season. Starting with an opening reception on December 6, 2014 at Noon and running until the end of March 2015.
