Thursday, April 15, 2021  10:00 am -11:00 am MDT                                             

 As we prepare to re-enter the live exhibiting arena, two major priorities for all exhibitors will be ensuring health and safety, and positioning exhibiting programs for productivity and return on investment in a new exhibiting landscape.

In this all-new exhibitor webinar, leading exhibiting productivity expert Jefferson Davis will discuss important things you will need to think about and respond to in order to execute a safe exhibiting program for your staff and your visitors.

Because your live exhibiting program has probably been “on the shelf” for a year and a half or more, he will walk you through the eight strategic areas of the Exhibit Marketing Process™ with the goal of helping you determine what areas you need to focus on between now and CattleCon21 to ensure that your exhibiting program supports your core business objectives and delivers measurable value beyond cost.
