Tips to Make It Happen

When crafting your plan, think about the bottom line: Why should the company budget for your trip and what's the return on the investment?

  • Be solutions-driven – What issues pop up again and again? List exhibitors who could provide the solutions your team needs.
  • Provide a post-show rundown – Offer to deliver a short presentation or write-up on your key takeaways.
  • Plan for your absence – Whether it's working ahead or tapping a colleague to help out, explain how your missed time is covered.
