Trade shows are very
popular events, but it can be hard to draw individuals into the event. This is
because there is so much competition with other forms of entertainment today,
and going to a trade show is not always the highest priority for many.

It is important to
remember that with the higher cost, comes the greater reward of people coming
in. Having a cooking speaker talking will bring in a few people, having a local
and well-known cook speaking will bring in a few more. However, having Gordon
