The Virtual Experience

Attending virtual trade shows is no longer “new” to most of us. In fact, it’s fair to say a good portion of us have our virtual event routine pretty set by now. The same can be said for the team here at Spud Smart. We’ve helped manage dozens of virtual trade shows and have also had our own sales and marketing teams exhibit at many of them.


So, what does it take to be successful at the virtual trade shows you’re attending?  Three things: plan, engage, and network. A virtual trade show requires the same prep that an in person event does in order to get the same results.


But don’t worry,  we’re here to help! Whether you’re a sponsor, exhibitor, or attending the event, our team is standing by to help you make the most of your event.
