Join experts in this informative session, where you’ll hear tips and tricks on how to prepare yourself for a show, beyond the bare necessities. We'll cover everything from pre-show logistics, the importance of networking events (hint – it's not just to party!), what buyers want to hear from you to do business, booth etiquette, and more. Bring your questions – we'll provide the answers you need to set yourself up for success.

What attendees will learn…

Christine Salmon, Floriexpo's Sales Director, will break down what exhibitors need to do pre-show logistically, to be set-up for onsite, explain the importance of attending networking events, discuss booth etiquette and more!

Joseph Farrell, President of BloomQuest LLC, and Joep Paternostre, CEO and Founder of Bloomaker USA Inc., will discuss how you can successfully do business in the U.S. from both an international and a domestic point of view.

Maria Fernandes, joins us with years of experience in the industry, most recently at Sobeys before a much deserved retirement, will discuss what buyers need and want to hear from exhibitors in order to do business.
