In this blog post, I provide 10 tips on how our sponsors and exhibitors can maximize their participation at our events. But before reading my top 10 tips for our sponsors and exhibitors, please take a moment and watch this brief Sandy Carter video.
"Cloud Expo was really the event to connect with thought leaders, innovators, business folks who are interested in what the cloud can bring to their business. You know really how it allows them to bring the transformation of the business process."
1) Sponsor and Exhibit in both New York and Silicon Valley

3) Review and Approve Your Assets, Logo, Company Sescription, etc., Quickly
Please provide your official company logo and description for inclusion on all our event sites and conference newsletters.
4) Communicate Your Participation and Presence with Your Clients, Customer Base
Our 20 years of experience as the world's leading technology event company has shown us that the sponsors and exhibitors with the most successful return from our conferences are the companies that plan their show presence well in advance. Some of our sponsors even provide fleets of cars to drive their customers to and from the event.
5) Coordinate Your Announcements with Our Show Dates to Maximize Your Media Coverage
The best way to leverage your @CloudEXPO presence as a sponsor and exhibitor is to plan your news announcements around our events. The media covering @CloudEXPO and @ExpoDX will have access to these releases and will amplify your news announcements. More than two dozen Cloud companies either set deals at our shows or have announced their mergers and acquisitions at @CloudEXPO. Product announcements during our show provide your company with the most reach through our targeted audiences.
6) Sign Up with Our Event Blog and Publish Technical Posts
@CloudEXPO, @ExpoDX, and @DevOpsSummit offer some of the most well-known and widely read, popular technology blogs. Contact us at [email protected] to set up your blog. Blog entries explaining tips, tricks, and techniques about the technologies you provide are an invaluable way to reach your buyers.
7) Use Twitter Frequently, add @CloudExpo and @ThingsExpo in Your Tweets
Your customers and our delegates are the most active professional Twitter users in any industry. We will re-tweet your posts to our 120,000+ followers.
8) Promote Your Session(s) Before the Event
If you have technical sessions at our events, promote them. Don't forget, every speaker is competing with sessions in nine other breakout tracks which takes place at the same time slot. Many delegates pick which sessions they plan to attend before they arrive, so you need to promote your session content to draw the maximum audience to your presentation.
9) Plan Your Activities at Your Booth, Don't Forget Live Demos
The Expo Floor is where business is conducted. Remember your competition in the next booth is trying to reach the same customers as you are. Providing demos of your solid product is the best way to utilize the activities at your booth. Giving out t-shirts and fun toys and conducting drawings will keep delegates interested, but at the end of the day you are there to sell your products and services, not t-shirts.
10) Take Advantage of the Post-Show Marketing Opportunities Included with Your Contract
@CloudEXPO and @ExpoDX sponsor/exhibitor packages come with the most effective pre and post-show marketing opportunities. Don't miss any of these programs, which can be worth more than all your other marketing efforts combined.
