B2B Opportunities – Making The Most Out Of The Business to Business Expo

October 14, 2016 by Rob Peters

Participating in business-to-business (B2B) expos can be one effective way to market your DJ company and services for corporate events. Most B2B expo exhibitors are normally companies that can help grow businesses, such as banks, promotional marketing companies, office supply and equipment companies and healthcare organizations. I have not found too many of my competitors exhibiting at these shows, which has placed my business at an advantage with our presence. Through my experience, I have found some strategies that can help you gain more business as a result of exhibiting, which I’ll share here.

Knowing how to put your best foot forward and how to present your services at a B2B expo can help you achieve a better return on your investment.


What kind of entertainment services do you offer for corporate events? Are you looking to just provide DJ services for the annual employee appreciation party? Or do you offer team-building services that companies can use? Do you specialize in providing audio/video equipment or sound system rentals for business meetings? Knowing what you will be marketing and having a good representation of those services in the form of a marketing piece to hand out is important when prospects stop by your booth.
