Here are three important tips from Robbin Montero for attending Bridal Shows!
Tip # 1: Get organized
Make a list of vendors you still need beforehand. Plan to zero in on those vendors when you first arrive. Dress comfortably and wear a great-fitting pair of shoes. There may be a few food samples, but eat a meal before you go to maintain stamina. Carry water and fruit or an energy snack so you aren’t compelled to cut your show visit short. Arrive early on the day of the show. Use the time between fashion shows and major show events to pace yourself and see the booths in a relaxed manner.
Tip # 2: Have a game plan
Before attending, explain your objectives to your helpers and give them specific assignments in order to better cover the show. Once at the show, split up and have them report back to you at a specific time with any booth or product they think you should see for yourself before leaving. Most bridal shows offer a vendor directory at registration. Keep the directory in hand for reference and recording notes on the vendors as you make your way through the show. If you locate a vendor whose services you wish to secure, check the vendor’s availability and schedule an appointment. Bring address labels to use when signing up for vendor mailing lists or prizes and, basic as it seems, don’t forget extra pens.
Tip # 3: Act on your research – quickly
Many vendors offer “show only” discounts or special prices for a limited time. Wait no longer than two or three days following the show to sort through and organize all vendor materials from the event. Nothing is worse than assuming you can take your time and discovering what you want is no longer available. Many vendors become completely booked within two weeks following the show, so make contact as soon as possible.
