The second, “What to Expect and How to Prepare,” will cover pre-show operations, lead generation, booth set-up info and etiquette, and post-show follow-up. The webinars will air on May 21 and June 18.
At market on Aug. 19, the seminar “How to Manage Orders and Leads” will cover lead follow-up, closing sales, order and payment processing and working with sales agencies, the companies said.
The cost to participate in each webinar is $10 per company; and tickets for the onsite seminar cost $20 advance/$25 onsite. Exhibitors can register online after Friday, April 3.
