Tradeshow Basecamp™ is a complete guide on how to have profitable conversations at trade shows or direct sales events. Our courses will teach you how to set and use sales goals to effectively guide your trade show sales conversations. You’ll learn how to identify the Four Character Lead Types you’ll meet at every trade show and how to have successful conversations with each of them.
Sales in Five Easy Steps? Yes you can!
Tradeshow Basecamp™ will teach you how to have direct sales conversations at trade shows or exhibitions in Five Easy Steps:
- Quick Intro
- Lead Interview
- Next Steps
To learn more about the Five Easy Steps approach, read our article on trade show direct sales strategy. Each step should take you closer to your sales goals. You’ll use Icebreakers to start conversations with exhibit attendees—conversations that might lead to sales! You’ll prepare Quick Intros in advance of the show—short statements about your company or product that keep the sales conversation going. From there, you’ll qualify leads with the Lead Interview—asking specific questions to find out if the person you are speaking with is a ‘good lead’ likely to buy from you!
If at any point you discover the person you are speaking with is not a good lead, you jump right to the last step and Disengage (end the conversation)! If your conversation has uncovered that the person is (or might still be) a good lead, you try to meet a sales goal by proposing appropriate Next Steps.

What students are saying about our Direct Sales Training Courses!
Forget tedious powerpoint-style courses, these charming instructors are on-camera with engaging lectures and fantastic demos. Even if you aren’t in sales you’d be hard-pressed to watch it and not come away with something useful.
VERY INFORMATIVE. I’m glad I have the time to train and certify my staff before our next show. It is important to my staff singing from the same hymnal whether they are sales or production personnel. This course will be just what we need.

show now and will adjust my icebreakers accordingly!
Very educational and entertaining. You really illustrated the process exceptionally well. Thank you for sharing.
More than I expected. The instructors are engaging and make funny but educational demos.
Very clear and easy to follow. I really liked the role playing and learned alot I didn’t know. Never considered you could think of sales conversations as a series of steps.
M Jordan, CTBE™
So glad I found this course before my trade show coming up in December. The examples and the reviews of what was just learned are so much clearer than just reading out of a book. A fun course with Tina and Liz!.
