Dallas-Fort Worth, TX — An exhibitor at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo has booked Spark’s trade show training program to help its booth staff convert more leads at its booth.

The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) will run the 4-hour “Expert” version of Spark’s trade show training for its booth staff at its home office before the show. Delivered by Spark owner Andy Saks, the training is titled, “Booth Brush-Up: How to stand out, sell more, and have fun on your show floor.”

The lead attraction training will prepare NTTA staffers to attract, qualify, pitch, and disengage from Fort Worth Stock Show attendees efficiently and effectively. As a result, NTTA will qualify more leads more efficiently and effectively, boosting the efficacy of its staff and the ROI of its booth.

Lead generation training topics include:

— Examining the overlooked opportunities and unique challenges of trade shows
— Reviewing Fort Worth Stock Show parameters and attendee demographics
— Brainstorming a full profile of the exhibitor’s best lead, called its “Prime Prospect”
— Understanding how attendees perceive exhibitors and what they need from them
— Attracting attendees into the booth using physical positioning and posture
— Asking questions that establish trust and measure a prospect’s value
— Delivering an efficient, tailored product demo
— Disengaging with a commitment to specific follow-up actions in place

The training will be anchored by Spark’s customized slide deck, and include discussion, brainstorming, role-playing activities, and a special game show review to reinforce key concepts.

Each exhibit staffer will also receive a signed print copy of The Presentation Playbook, a book written by Saks on designing and delivering fun, effective business presentations.
