In the Covid-19 era, generating ROI at your trade show booth is tougher. Fewer attendees. Less talking time. More discomfort. You’ll work hard for every lead.
What hasn’t changed? Research shows the number one influence on attendee conversion is how your booth staff treats them. Your people still matter most of all.
