-Have sufficient assistance - find helpers (volunteers, staff) in advance to make it through the day
-Treat it as a long-term marketing investment - it's an amazing way to network, connect with existing clients, and make a lasting first impression on new potentials!
-Give people a reason to check out (and stay at) your booth - make things look attractive, make what you are offering obvious, and highlight the branding that sets you apart. Simple and eye-catching is ideal, don't overwhelm your table. Make your products visible & accessible - find creative ways to maximize the 100 square feet at your disposal!
-Encourage engagement: display your products and create visuals for services that encourage people to ask questions. Consider a newsletter sign-up and for folks to follow you via social media in return for free tips, premiere access, or something else of value.
-Plan ahead! This event is rain or shine, so come prepared - a tent, weights, appropriate clothing to weather the elements. Wear comfortable shoes and put yourself front and center - make yourself available for engagement. Don't hide behind your table or spend all day sitting waiting for people to connect with you - work to connect with them!
-Consider making a bigger splash by either sponsoring the event, the event t-shirts, or donating a raffle object/basket to increase your visibility at the event!
