The Benefits of Using Tablets at Trade Shows

If you’re a tablet user, you know what an extremely valuable — maybe even indispensable — business tool it can be. But did you know that a tablet can also help you maximize your return on investment at trade show events? By having a tablet on hand at or near your booth, you can offer an interactive user experience that can take your trade show results to a whole new level. Use your tablet as a “silent salesperson” to provide information about your products and services, collect customer data, stimulate conversations and much more.

Key benefits of using tablets at trade shows include:

  • Increased visitor volume: There’s something about a tablet that generates curiosity. People who might otherwise pass by your booth will want to stop and check out what’s on your tablet.
  • Making effective visual and audio presentations: Tablets are excellent vehicles for presenting product information. Use pictures, videos and sound to bring your products to life and demonstrate their many features and benefits.
  • Enhanced communication: Trade show attendees are likely to have plenty of questions about your company, products and services — some of which you might not be able to answer off the top of your head. Having a tablet on hand gives you and your sales team easy fingertip access to the most recent updated information.
  • Collecting contact information: Trade shows offer a golden opportunity to make new, potentially lucrative business contacts. A tablet provides a fast, efficient means of collecting prospect data for future use.
  • Cutting down on paper: By present product information, taking orders and collecting customer information via your tablet, you won’t have to clutter your booth with brochures, order forms and other paper items. This is also a great way to reduce your company’s printing costs.
