What can digital marketers learn from us more traditional marketing types now that the economy is growing at a healthy clip all around the world? To focus their minds on both sides of the sales and marketing divide.

Exhibiting at ExhibitorLive really gives you the opportunity to let loose all your most creative skills to promote and exhibit your products and services to an audience that is receptive and excited about new stuff!
But, as you prepare during the show countdown, it’s really odd, because you get the same feelings that our normal clients must get when they prepare for their shows, where your default setting is just to turn up and put on a good show and everyone will be happy!
