Attending trade shows can be a necessary evil or a wonderful opportunity to network with potential suppliers and customers to build your business. If your goal is to make the most of the multiple opportunities attending a trade show can present, check out these tips for surviving your first or (fiftieth) trade show.
1. Wear comfortable footwear.
Walking on a trade show floor is not the time to break in a new pair of shoes. If you are planning to buy a new pair for the show, do so a few weeks in advance and break them in well before the first day of the event. You may want to add some cushioned insoles to your shoes for extra comfort, especially if you will be standing or walking on a concrete floor for most of the day. […]

However, technology has driven the market towards new realizations and new office space solutions. Now, it’s possible for both new and established businesses to create a custom solution, or variety of solutions, that meet their needs.

Where is your company going to be in two years? In five? Even if you have a very detailed business plan that outlines your future success step by step you can’t be exactly sure how your business will do and how many employees you’ll have until you walk the walk.
Is your office space prepared for your growth? Since you can’t say for sure how big the size of your business will be in the next few years, it’s impossible to tell how much office space you’ll need. What’s a business owner to do? Signing a multi-year lease for office space paints you into a corner. If your business doesn’t grow to meet the size of the space, you’ll be paying for space that you can’t use. Because you are locked into your lease, your overhead for your business will be greater than your need for space. Paying a lease that is too high for your needs can suck up capital that could be used to grow your business. […]
