It’s Show Time!

by Chuck Roper

Sales Associate

Trade shows are a traditional

marketing strategy used by companies

to showcase their latest products

and network with other companies,

clients, and potential partners in

the industry.

In the US, tradeshows

still remain one of the most profitable

business-to-business media strategy

producing billions of dollars in revenue

annually. Sales potential of trade shows

is rather high, considering that over 80

percent of trade show visitors are directly

involved in making purchase decisions,

and trade show attendees have stated

these events have a considerable impact

on their purchase decision.

In 2019

Mining People

will be highlighting

six mining/aggregate shows providing

added value for advertisers: pre-

show and post-show coverage, bonus

distribution at the show in addition to our

regular mailed hard copy and electronic

circulation and show issues will include

company profiles and booth numbers for

exhibiting advertisers.

AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo
