First international trade fair experiences

What should we expect at an international trade fair? All our preparations to present in front of international trade fair visitors revolved around this very question. We were unsure what to expect from the several thousand visitors, who would frequent the fair in the next three of four days. What questions would they ask? What should we tell them? What would we show them? And, above all,who do we want to see at our stall? On our first three international trade fairs we gathered some experience and are now able to at least partially answer these questions.

Settled on a design

Well, what should our #CompactChart look like? A bit noble, but also simple and functional. The survey conducted at the ORTE 2017 and in our circle of friends and acquaintances did not yield a distinct result. That’s why we sat down once again and discussed what we had come up with. The takeaway from that discussion was that Design 2 shall be implemented. It is simple yet dynamic. Now it’s time for the implementation. We still have a lot of construction work ahead of us.
