Exhibiting at the 2022 AHR Expo

With nearly 2,000 companies to compete with, it’s important that your booth is noticeable and memorable. First, you should ensure your company is correctly categorized into one of the event’s product categories; this will make it easier for booth visitors to find you in the Show Directory and online.

Next, you’ll want to plan your booth so you can set yourself up for success during the show. There are a few things you can do to make sure your booth stands out!

  1. Plan ahead: Will you rent, build or use existing materials?
  2. Create an itinerary: Research the event and pick the networking events, educational sessions, keynotes, and social events you want to attend. This way, you can schedule when you’ll be at your booth discussing your business with attendees or other exhibitors.
  3. Design a memorable experience: No matter the size, your booth should tell a seamless brand story.
  4. Train the right team: Having the right booth staff is just as important as having the right design; include a mix of people from sales, technical, customer service, and management;
  5. Ditch the hard sell: Instead of trying to get sales, focus instead on how your products or services solve a problem.
  6. Follow up: Use the travel time home to send follow-up emails to thank visitors for their time and remind them about your company.
