    I haven't done a trade show in about 12 years. Do you do them and what are your results?

    I was thinking of doing a large one in my local area and predominantly advertise one segment of our company and have the other information about us available at the booth. I am most interested in increasing our chemical division and it is the easiest to promote.

    What are your thoughts?

    My experience is that people mostly come to get free stuff and drawings. We did the home show a couple of times and really did not generate enough leads to justify the time and expense. Direct mail always worked better. Word of mouth us best.
