Chapter 1

Digitization is the fire that has taken the world by storm. And there is just no stopping it. No matter which corner of the world you look at, you will be surprised to see the immeasurable and extensive advances of digitization.

Trade shows were no exceptions.

With raging digitization issues spreading the trade show booths, business owners need to come up with increasingly competitive means of countering the calls made by their rival firms. But then again, you can never break the back of the beast unless the beast is unleashed on you.

So, let us first learn how to tame the beast and then we will go on to see how to break its back.

What Challenges Are Brought About by Digitization for Trade Fair Organizers?

Digitization is a never ending procedure. It keeps evolving and transforming through the times. The biggest challenge for tradeshows today lies in staying ready to face the unforeseen. None of us can predict what the world will look in the coming 10-15 years.

Walking on these unpredictable paths without faltering or staggering is the newest challenge on the block. Trade fair organizers can only deem to be successful if they are up for every challenge and if they feel they are determined of making their way through this hazy maze. Identifying opportunities and making the most of these can get you going on prudent booth-ing.

How to Make the Most of These Opportunities?

Digitization brings two things to a trade show business. To start with, it coerces us to use more digitization platforms in our daily work schedules. It necessitates upon us the need to contrive new roads within which we can collect the scattered mind-frames of the attendees.

They promise us value creation, while also directing the sales needs more towards matching up the supply and demand schedules.

How Far Is the Pressure Valid?

If you are not up-to-the-minute with every digital marketing skit your customers are acquainted with, you have lost the battle there itself. Firms are increasingly conducting cross-sector digitalization of their business processes, marketing and distribution. Organizers too need to adapt to these developments unless prepared to accept any competitive disadvantages.

What businesses have to understand here is the need for speed. The faster one digitalizes the faster they get into the lead, even while taking account of setbacks and mistakes, the better will they bank on customer appeal.

The aspired digital transformation can be materialized by mustering the following possibilities:-

  • You can form a digital subsidiary.
  • You can declare digitization to your employees as a management task and thereby adopt a company-wide approach on the same, boosting employee morale at every step.
  • Establish a new business unit in addition to existing divisions for a further boost of the digitization wave.

If you can ensure you have understood the inherent connotation to the above, you definitely have succeeded in taming the beast.

All that is justify to do now is to learn how exactly you can break its back; which we are dealing with in Chapter 2.
