Registering early is one of the best ways to maximize your time spent at any show. For tradeshows or seminars with an admission fee, the best reason to register early is to take advantage of special discounts —namely what’s known as the “Early Bird Rate.”
But how do attendees at trade-only shows with free registration benefit from making the commitment weeks (or sometimes months) before the show?
Skipping the lines
Early registrants receive their badge in the mail ahead of the show. If you miss the cutoff for mailing, you can relax knowing you’ll still be able to skip the registration line and simply pick up your badge at the Advance Registration desk.
Once you’ve completed registration, you receive periodic updates about the show. The sooner you register, the sooner you'll learn about seminar speakers, new exhibitors, products, trends and more.
Booking early is key to securing the best hotels and flights. Knowing when you'll be at the show will also help when it comes to pre-arranging appointments with the exhibitors or sales reps you'd like to see.
