    • How has exhibiting at trade shows made a positive impact on your business? We use trade shows a lot for brand building and as an opportunity more to show our top prospects that we are at where they're at. 
    • How has attending exhibitions/trade shows positively impacted your business? Def. gotten us in the door of many company RFPs and helped to get or keep discussions going.
    • What's the best exhibition/trade show you've attended and why? Personally? I really enjoy ExhibitorLive. It provides a great learning opportunity and the tradeshow floor offers invaluable new trends in events.

    Hello!
    • How has exhibited at trade shows made a positive impact on your business? I actually have not participated in trade shows as an exhibitor, but as an attendee, I think it has helped tremendously to network in person and build relationships with suppliers.
    • How has attending exhibitions/trade shows positively impacted your business? Same answer as above!
    • What's the best exhibition/trade show you've attended and why? I really enjoyed IMEX trade show floor experience and Cvent Connect trade show floor for different reasons. IMEX is so large it does seem very overwhelming while Connect is much more intimate. IMEX had a very wide range of suppliers so I felt like I hit multiple types of suppliers, while Connect is more limited and seems to be heavily focused on hotels.
