If your first thoughts about tradeshow sales lead follow-up occur only as work crews start furiously rolling up the carpets and tearing down exhibits around you, you ‘re in trouble.

Prepare
Effective tradeshow follow-up begins long before the last business card is exchanged, long before the last farewell to your fellow exhibitors. Follow-up preparation begins before the tradeshow and continues as the show progresses.

Trouble, oh we got trouble

There are those who just cannot get enough snow – kids and dogs, in particular. When Bubbles, our Maltese, jumps into a pile of snow, she would be invisible but for her two eyes. In the immortal words of Professor Harold Hill of Music Man fame, when we have snow like we have had lately in many parts of the country, those of us in the exhibition and events industry have

Right here in River City!

Show Managers love Bartizan's Tradeshow App, iLeads.

Posted by Joanna Stasuk on Dec 16, 2010 12:09:30 PM

iLeads makes lead follow up easy for exhibitors and this makes show management happy. A prioritized lead is a hot lead.  iLeads for Blackberry will launch second quarter 2011. Exhibitors can use their own devices or they can rent iPod touches or iPads from show management. Since the April 2010 launch, iLeads has won TSEA's Breakthrough Award and Tradeshow Executive's Innovation Award.

"We chose to use Bartizan’s lead retrieval app because it’s very easy to use, did not require bar-coding, there are no minimum on app purchases, no fees, did not require us to coordinate the rentals, and Bartizan’s great customer service!

Our goal was to give our exhibitors a lead retrieval system that was easy and affordable.

This was our first time using any lead retrieval system for our meeting and Bartizan allowed us to incorporate our current registrant database, without any special requirements. We simply sent them our registrant list and they took care of the rest! The only thing we had to do was pass out iPod touch rentals on-site and they provided a technical support number for any on-site issues.

We did not pay anything out of pocket. All we did was send them our registrant list and they took care of the promotions, uploads, and everything! Our exhibitors loved having the ability to use the system and gather member information without taking home a pile business cards to sort through."
