Trade shows can pay off in customers, exec says | Cigar EXPO – Cigar Shows & Events
expokey.com, 7 Feb 2012 [cached]
"If you're a business owner, and the convention works for you, it's one of the best ways to advance your business," says Joe Gold, CEO of Bahama Mamas, a manufacturer of cigars.
Gold says exhibiting at trade shows has been huge for him and his company, allowing him to lure potential buyers that he otherwise wouldn't be able to reach.
For 14 years, Gold has been exhibiting his cigar products at conventions around the globe. When he was starting out, he exhibited at a show in Macau.
"I did kind of crazy things," Gold says, laughing.
On Feb. 1 and 2, Bahama Mamas will have a booth at the 2012 Tobacco Plus Expo International. The trade show is targeted to buyers and manufacturers within the tobacco industry.
"The exposure is immense," Gold says.
For shows that he attends in Las Vegas, Gold tends to spend between $6,000 and $7,000 on his exhibits, which include bright orange and yellow displays of his cigar products as well as a slew of Bahama Mama girls, the models who promote the brand. Out-of-state shows cost more - between $10,000 and $13,000 - because of the travel involved.
Gold chooses different booth sizes, depending on the convention. Sometimes he opts for a 10 feet-by-10 feet; other times he'll choose a 10 feet-by-20 feet. Occasionally, he'll book a 20 feet-by-20 feet. When he does, a show will cost him between $15,000 and $18,000.
For out-of-state trade shows, Gold pays for hotel and airfare not only for himself, but his team of Bahama Mama girls, his executive vice president and his sales staff. But, Gold said the cost is worth it.
"For us, it has been unbelievably successful," he stated. "It has always paid off for us."
Gold suggests business owners research industry-specific shows, then talk to others in their line of work to see what they think of a particular convention before they go as exhibitors or attendees.
If you're planning to go as an attendee, Gold also advises checking out the educational seminars, not only the show floor.
"It's a mass of information and good things you can do for your business," Gold said.
