October may still seem a little way off but in event planning terms it’s high time the pre-show build-up began.

With just four months and counting to go, a carefully thought through campaign should ensure extended, valuable exposure around a major trade event, like Construction Week. Box clever with a fully integrated marketing strategy and it could span at least two quarters’ worth of activity before, during and after the expo close.

Could you be getting more out of all the time, expense and effort ploughed into putting on a show-stopping presence?

Certainly Ecobuild 2017 showed a potential missed opportunity for some exhibitors in the construction space (Lessons learned from Ecobuild). While the event itself was a hive of stimulating activity, the outreach beforehand didn’t do many of the immersive stand experiences on-site justice. Being louder and prouder about your plans helps delegates proactively seek you out in a sea of exhibitors.
