Professionally Speaking...

Send out a questionnaire, interview representative attendees, understand their mindset, anticipate questions. And while this won't capture every single expectation that attendees bring, it will give you a good foundation from which to address anything unexpected. Sometimes unmet expectations come from lack of clarity when an attendee mistakenly assumes that something should have been covered and is then frustrated when it's not.

Lessons from a trade show

Speak Schmeak

My favorite exhibitors by far (even if I didn't love the product), were the ones who had stories to tell and engaged with the attendees. The newbies to the industry, the companies who are still small and still trying to get a foothold in the world of specialty foods, can't play the same game as the big guys, who often approach attendees with a hard sell.

Top 20 Seminar Scams and How to Avoid Them

Great Public Speaking

Yes, I use urgency techniques to get people to act now. The reason you see so many urgency techniques at seminars is that the bad boy/girl seminar speakers and promoters know they will not follow up with you. I think this technique also shows desperation.
