Prepare Your Visit to VIEW

In time for the next edition of VIEW Premium Selection, taking place on December 3rd-4th 2019, here are the top 7 habits of the most successful buyers and project managers.

1. REGISTER FOR YOUR TICKETS IN ADVANCE

First things first, book your ticket in advance. Registering a few weeks before the event ensures you skip the registration process on the days of the event, saving you valuable time to get a head start on your trade show visit.

2. UNDERSTAND YOUR NEEDS

Research which products you are looking for and find the exhibitors ahead of time. Ask your sales teams, what products are the most popular? What fabrics will be essential for your new collections? Are you missing those all-important trim details?

3. CREATE YOUR LISTS

Come prepared with two lists: The ‘Must’ list and the ‘Bonus’ list. The ‘Must’ list will detail the fabrics or trims which you 100% need going forward for the new season. Whereas the ‘Bonus’ list reminds you of the items you would like but factors like budget and design direction or time limitations mean you’re not desperate to lock down. Be clear about your needs and specify; weight; width; colour; fiber; composition or structure.

4. SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENTS

Arrange to meet with your existing partners as well as new brands at the show. Scheduling in advance means less time spent in queues at that specific supplier and guarantees valuable conversation time. It is important to understand your needs and consider these when booking your appointments. Check out our list of exhibitors in advance here.

5. PREPARE YOUR SCRIPT

As a potential partner, first impressions matter so take the time to prepare a succinct but informative introduction and get ready to talk minimums, turnaround times and of course price. Use targeted questions about the product offering, pricing and manufacturing support.

6. GET INVOLVED ON SOCIAL

Ahead of the event add us on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter and connect with our community. More importantly, discover the brands, businesses and companies who attend our show by following our hashtags #viewmunich and join in by tagging us and sharing your trade show experience and boost your profile.

7. BOOK TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION IN ADVANCE

Munich is a busy city with many events and tourism, booking your accommodation in advance is the easiest way to ensure a stress-free stay in our beautiful city. Check out ahead of the event what’s the best way to travel around the city, SBahn, UBahn, Tram, Bus or Uber. Plan your travel to the MVG Museum for VIEW here.
