Tips for having a great experience at the Health Fair
Have a game plan
You will have a limited amount of time during the Health Fair to visit a number of fantastic vendors that could help you with different needs. Before attending the show, make a quick list of some of the professionals you are interested in speaking with, and decide which workshops to attend. This will allow you to make use of all the free information available and maximize your time.
Bring a bag to the show
One thing that is for certain is you will be leaving with a lot of brochures, pamphlets, business cards and promotional information. All of that information can get heavy, so bringing your own bag or carry-all to help tote everything around can be a life-saver.
Bring your date book calendar or digital planner
Trying to schedule or plan a possible follow-up meeting with a someone will surely be easier if you can quickly glance at your immediate availability. Come prepared with your calendar of your existing schedule.
Bring a Friend
Share the fun and information by bringing along a friend or family member you might think would benefit from attending.
Take a Pen
As you collect business cards or information pieces you can make a star on the ones you like, so you can remember who’s who when you get home and you can also easily write down the actual names of the vendors you chatted with.
Wear Comfortable Shoes
The last thing you’ll want to worry about is how much your feet hurt from all of your walking around. Wearing comfortable shoes should be mandatory.
Organize your new found information ASAP
Do yourself a favor and arrange to go through and organize all the pamphlets and literature you received from the health fair as soon as you can. Having a huge stack of papers you haven’t gone through can loom over you and create a sense of not being organized. Plus, you will remember who you wanted to learn more about right after the event.
