Nomadic Takes a BOW at The Naval Museum Madrid

by Nomadic Display 9. November 2010 01:09

See how Nomadic can create an ocean of opportunity for your event marketing program
Nomadic Display creates an OCEAN of opportunities for the Spanish Navy Marines. The Infantry needed a platform to expand their mission critical recruiting efforts. The Armada's existing custom displays were too heavy and cumbersome to set up so the Spanish Navy Marines sought a lighter weight solution. They wanted a custom exhibit that would be easy to assemble and reconfigure to accommodate varied applications.

After reviewing hundreds of design proposals countrywide, The Spanish Navy Marines selected their premier supplier and issued marching orders to MSB Massa Barzano.  The local supplier, MSB Massa Barzano called on Nomadic to assist in the design and implementation of 20 custom displays. The final design enables the Spanish recruitment fleet to use the displays alone or combine them for use in larger venues.

Magnetic graphic panels promote the Spanish Navy Marine’s slogan: “An Ocean of Opportunities” and are easily interchangeable to accomodate different target audiences. 

The shipping cases were seamlessly transformed into backlit graphic kiosks and converted into counters for product display.


All of the easily portable displays made their debut at the esteemed Naval Museum Madrid where key stakeholders remarked on the quality, ease of assembly and versatility of the custom exhibits.  The Spanish Navy Marine's custom displays will continue to promote infantry enlistment
in their anticipated installation at 5 Naval bases throughout Spain.

See how Nomadic can make your next Event SPOOKtacular
                    SpOOktacular Event Giveaways
Halloween is right around the corner and I got to thinking about how much Halloween trick or treating resembles trade show attendance. Trick or treaters (your audience) scour the neighborhood (the show floor) looking for tricks (products and services) and receiving treats (event giveaways). Some houses (booths) are more popular than others in the neighborhood because they deliver the goods.  So if you want to be among the popular exhibitors, here are the premium giveaways that will have trades show attendees SCREAMING for more.

Drink and be Merry
Ceramic Mug:

Tote Bag: 

For them
Promotional totes continue to be a hit for trade show attendees because for their usefulness in storing: reading material, lunch, groceries, gym clothes,diapers...etc.
For You
A tote bag offers you more visual real estate to communicate your brand (through your logo and imagery relevant to your target audience).  Available in hundreds of styles and colors, they are lightweight to ship and are compact enough to store in your booth since most fold flat.  Unless you are targetting a particular gender, select a design that appeals to both men and women. Consider cloth totes made from recycled fibers to promote your organization as one that is environmentally responsible and prides itself on employing sustainable strategies.

Go for a Drive

USB Drive:

USB drives save users time and computer space by allowing them to store critical documents in a portable unit, whether they use the hotel business center or their company lap top.

Top Industry Influentials Weigh in on Lead Management

by Nomadic Display 12. October 2010 22:15

    See how we can take your event marketing to the next level!
After last Tuesdays blog write up in lead management I scowered the Trade Show Exhibitors Association (TSEA) discussion forum on LinkedIN for exclusive insider feedback.  See below what some industry veterans are saying about lead management:


“It's hard to explain to the executives sometimes that the qualitative is as important as metrics.  I currently use a simple spreadsheet to report quantitative and qualitative results which works"okay" but, I admit that I would love to improve upon this.”

 –  Holly Randall, Marketing Manager, Trade Relations


“This has ALWAYS been a challenge, and not just being able to calculate ROI. Convincing management to spend an extra $10 or $20 to qualify a sales lead that costs $150+ to get is a challenge in and of itself.  Definitely a huge gap between marketing's efforts to generate leads and sale's perception of the lack of quality and hence, lack of follow-up...”

 – Bill Wilde, Principal, Marketing and Advertising Let us know how your company Leads the way in Lead management


“If you don't build a collaborative relationship between sales and marketing and establish alignment of business unit objectives, trying to determine ROI or ROO is fruitless. The bigger issue is the ability to align the different business groups to build consensus on a process that will deliver metrics that mean something to the company”

- Steve McWilliams, VP of Sales and Marketing, Information Technology and Services Industry 


”The best is at the very earliest stages to discuss with those who are doing the event why they are investing in it and what they hope to get out of it. Before you leave the room have those metrics agreed upon and in the post event analysis present them as well as any other metrics you feel are relative.”

- Harris Schanhaut, Senior Events Leader, Marketing and Advertising

Are You LEADing the Way in Lead Management?

With the tradesho
w season in full swing, event marketers are having to wear more hats than ever; post show event analysis is one of the many duties that exhibitors are adding to their expanding event marketing agendas. Lead management is a driving factor in effectively evaluating your event performance. With 74% of exhibitors measuring their event performance on leads collected at events, it is imperative that you have an effective means of lead management before you kick off your next event.

Below are some ways that you can optimize your tradeshow lead management so that follow up is streamlined and intuitive. Adopting the below best practices will ensure when it comes time for reporting ROI to upper management, you have results  that support your continuing marketing efforts.

Visit our website to see how we can help with your next event

1) Be the LEADer
Lead retrieval systems will save you time and money from keypunching business card information later. Business cards, although portable and handy can
be easily misplaced so, if you find yourself with a hand full them, take a minute to staple the business cards to pre printed lead forms.

2) Learn to Score
Sales and Marketing too often play “hot potato” with lead management and follow up.  There is a consensus of frustration among marketers and sales teams alike regarding post show lead follow up.  Collaboratively developing a lead scoring system will alleviate the sometimes daunting task of lead follow up and will prioritize action items for the sales division.

3) Stick to your Guns
Whether it’s Sales or Marketing, determine who is responsible for post show follow up and what method of communications will be implemented (personal email – from sales, post show mailers, personal phone calls and/or automated emails from Marketing)


Additionally, the sooner you follow up on tradeshow leads the better; reaching out to leads directly after event tear down (before their inboxes fill up with automated email communications from competitors) shows that you’re dedicated and sensitive to your customer’s unique requirements.
