One of the top five reasons exhibitors participate in a trade show is to gain exposure through media coverage. BNP Media has teamed up with Riemer Communications to provide exhibitors a cost effective way to communicate messages about their new products and services to editors, reporters and bloggers that have been invited as well as those that have registered for the Show. News stories that come out of a trade show can make a company's entire year. For a new company or product, it can put them on the road to success.
The Quality Show offers exhibitors several effective (and FREE!) ways to help get your company & brand out to the media.
