Top Tips for Visitors
Visiting trade events and exhibitions can often be an overwhelming experience. With over 100 stands set over two floors and lots of contacts to be made, being prepared for your visit will enable you to make the most of your time at The B2B Exhibition.
Here are some of our top tips for your visit:
- Grab our EDP supplement
One week before the event our special B2B supplement will be released in the Eastern Daily Press (EDP). Make sure you grab a copy or look out for our online digital version so you can start preparing your day. Our supplement contains a map and full programme - highlight key places you want to visit during the day and make yourself a mini schedule.
- Don’t forget B2B is on two floors!
With over 100 exhibitors showcasing unique products and services, you don’t want to miss half of them do you?! Remember to visit both floors of the exhibition so you don’t miss all of the exciting opportunities.
- Create a ‘top stands’ list
Research the top businesses with whom you hope to make contact with on the day. The EDP Supplement will contain a full list with content on all 104 of our exhibitors! Have a read through, check out their websites, maybe follow them on Social Media. Make a list and use this as your primary guide around B2B.
- Visit the networking lounge
Set up meetings or take a chance and see who you might meet in our networking lounge. Serving refreshments throughout the day, the networking lounge offers a break from the exhibition where you can hold meetings, make new contacts or just relax away from the exhibition.
- Attend the free masterclasses
We have four expert masterclasses running throughout the day, free for you to attend. Gain some expert, bite-size knowledge delivered by professional trainers.
- Check out the exclusive offers and discounts
The exhibition could be your chance to benefit from some great offers, promotions and giveaways so make the most of these! Visit the B2B website to find an up-to-date list off the offers being run.
- Collect your treasure trail stamp card
When you arrive don’t forget your treasure trail stamp card. New to B2B this year; if you visit the 10 stands taking part in the trail you could win a cash prize of £5,000! All you have to do is get your card, stamp it on the 10 stands, return it when you leave and you could win!
- Social media
Remember to share your experiences at B2B on your social media accounts. Use our dedicated event hashtag #NorfolkB2B18 and account @NorfolkB2B to keep up-to-date with what’s going on around the exhibition, as well as getting involved!
- Flash that name badge
Make sure your name badge can be clearly seen, allowing everyone to know your name and help them interact with you on a more personal level. All exhibitors will have their names displayed on their lanyards so you can spot them easily whether they’re at the stand, or networking elsewhere.
- Don’t forget your business cards
You never know when a new opportunity may come up at B2B – it could be with someone you least expect, so make sure you bring a pack of business cards to see you through the day. They can also be very handy for business card draws! If you take a business card from someone else, take the opportunity to write notes about your conversation so you can follow up when you’re back in the office.
