Top Tips for Visitors
Visiting trade events and exhibitions can often be an overwhelming experience. With over 100 stands 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:
1. Grab our event guide
One week before the event our event guide will be released in the Eastern Daily Press (EDP). Make sure you grab a copy so you can start preparing your day. Our event guide contains a map and full programme - highlight key places you want to visit during the day and make yourself a mini schedule.
2. Create a ‘top stands’ list
Research the top businesses with whom you hope to make contact with on the day. Our event guide will have a list of all the exhibitors and where they will be – or if you can’t wait until then, there’s a full list on our website! 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.
3. Take part in some speed networking
In our Networking Zone, you can go and meet new contacts and take part in some speed networking throughout the day. This is a great opportunity to identify new connections and have some fun doing so! The Networking Zone will be in the centre of the exhibition, creating a great atmosphere.
4. Attend the workshops
We have expert workshops running throughout the day, all free for you to attend! Gain some bite-size knowledge delivered by our members, with everything from building trust in your business to sales techniques.
5. 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!
6. Social media
Remember to share your experiences at B2B on your social media accounts. Use our dedicated event hashtag #NorfolkB2B19 and account @NorfolkB2B to keep up-to-date with what’s going on around the exhibition, as well as getting involved!
7. 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.
8. 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.
