Thousands of people visit the Business Entrepreneurship and Franchise Expo each year, which is at the Ticketpro Dome in Northriding, Johannesburg from 10 – 13 September 2015. One of the biggest advantages of visiting the Expo is that you have the opportunity to talk face-to-face with the exhibitors and obtain the information that you require.
Here are some tips on how to have the best experience when visiting the BEFE.
You will get Free entry by pre-registering online as opposed to a R 50 entrance fee when registering at the venue. Pre-registering also saves time by not having to stand in long queues.
- Do your homework
Do some research on the exhibitors that you are more interested in which will help you to ask the right questions to get the information that you want.
- Develop a plan
Plan which exhibitors you want to visit and then organise your list into two parts – must see and want to see exhibitors.
- Educate yourself
Attend the free workshops, learn shops and tactical business advice seminars.
This is the ideal time to take advantage of networking opportunities.
- Time Management
Managing your time at the expo is probably one of the most important factors for a good experience. Decide how much time you want to spend at the show to achieve your objectives and allow extra time for browsing, distractions and waiting in lines.
Be open to ideas and most of all – have fun!
