The National Stationery Show announces free exhibitor webinars

In anticipation of the National Stationery Show (NSS) on May 21-24, 2017 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, exhibitors can sign up for six free webinars designed to help them get the best results from their trade show experience. The series begins on Dec. 15, 2016, and continues through March 16, 2017.

Exhibitors can register online and participate live, or view the presentation “on demand” if the date and time don’t work with their schedule.

“Tradeshow participation offers an exceptional opportunity for exhibitors to expand brand awareness, generate leads, build relationships and write orders,” said Patti Stracher, Emerald Expositions vice president and the outgoing NSS show director. “Careful planning and execution enhances the results. This webinar series supports our exhibitors’ success before, during and after the NSS so they can capitalize on their investment and achieve great results.”

The slate of webinars focus on how to promote an exhibitor’s presence at the show through PR, social media and other marketing opportunities, as well as how to protect copyright and intellectual property rights, create a measurable sales plan, meet the best sales reps, navigate booth logistics, and design a booth that will stop buyers in their tracks.
