WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING EXHIBITORS!
Why vendors should come:
This will be the 15th show for the Great Lakes Emergency Preparedness Expo "GLEPE" since the show started in 2013. Birch Run has historically been the best location and continues to grow year after year. In 2018 we are devoting all of our efforts to just 1 show held in Birch Run. This will be our largest show to date.
Our expected attendance:
1,000-1,500 buyers. The past 5 shows have been around 600, 650, 500, 800, 600 attendees. That was with 3-4 shows a year in the region. One show will allow us to focus more money and time on promoting 1 large event instead of multiple smaller ones. This is already creating a pent of demand of attendees asking us when the next show is and is there any chance we will do one sooner.
Here's how we plan on getting the right people in the door:
We focus most of our marketing dollars on social media then local radio and signage. Through social media sites like Facebook we are able to directly target quality buyers with sincere buying interest. We have over 6,500 followers on Facebook and active email list of over 5,000 local contacts.
Our experience with shows:
This show is being put on by Midwest Tradeshow Services. Midwest has been putting on Business to Business and Business to Consumer Trade Shows in the fields of Sporting Goods, Military Surplus, Health & Fitness, Emergency Preparedness, Alternative Energy and Power Generation for nearly 20 years.
