A trade show is a great place to get your business and product promoted and sold. These events are perfect networking centers full of potential buyers, future clients, and PR opportunities. They aren’t going anywhere either. According to Statista: “In the U.S., trade show still remains one of the most profitable business-to-business (B2B) media strategy, as trade shows generated more than 12.6 billion U.S. dollars in revenue in 2015.” This is not a marketing strategy you want to forgo.

We are big fans of Star Wars here at Table Legs Online. In anticipation of the new movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we have been avidly counting down with less than 15 days left until the official release (December 18, 2015).
