Could they have done a better job? You bet! While there are a good handful of longtime suppliers to the industry that do some of the things I am about to talk about, most exhibitors at trade shows don?t set up a strategic industry marketing platform before trying for the hard sell either at the booth or after the show. Suppliers need to become goodwill ambassadors for the industry before they seek to market their goods and services aggressively. 3)RESTAURANT and HOSPITALITY BRAND, MARKETING, and OPERATIONAL CONSULTING :- Concept Group USA has over 100 collective years experience building brands and marketing programs for restaurant and hospitality operators locally, nationally and worldwide.
