In this video, sourcing guru Gary Huang talks about the most efficient way to talk to exhibitors at a trade show.
Some of his tips include:
- Come prepared with a list of products you are looking for
- When you find a suitable supplier, staple the supplier’s business card on a page in your notebook, and document product specs and prices on the same page
- Look at the products on display to determine the supplier’s focus. If there is a wide variety of products in display, it is likely the exhibitor is a trading company
