Invite Your Clients
Face-to-face selling remains one of the most cost-effective marketing techniques.  Hit the ground running by providing guest passes to existing or potential clients in the ISE markets in which you will be exhibiting. 

  • Purchase deeply discounted passes in advance by completing this form and sending it to ISE by December 1, 2017 (for January Shows) or by February 1, 2018 (for March Shows).
  • Tickets can be left at the ISE Will Call at each show.
  • Tickets are available for purchase at ISE Registration/Information Desk throughout the show.

 

 

Media Publicity
Every ISE show captures media coverage from print and online publications, radio and television stations.  The media is always looking for new people, products and services to highlight the outdoors.  This is your opportunity to benefit from free media exposure!

What type of publicity might work?  For sure, new products.  Gear that’s “green” or high-tech, too.  Other productive angles include a story involving local youth or family, or a current local environmental project.  Also, debuting a new destination or product exclusively at the show may generate media buzz.

To be considered for media publicity:

  • Email your pitch idea to John Kirk at jkirk@sportsexpos.com
  • Be prepared to present your product or service to the media.
  • Television coverage of the show is typically Thursday and Friday mornings.  If chosen, you must arrive early and have your exhibit space visually captivating - ISE can work and be there with you!

 

Brand Resources
Benefit from the ISE branding by using the official ISE logo in your promotional material.  Leverage your exhibitor status in your announcements, social media posts and press releases.  Also, list your booth number on all your materials so media and consumers can find you.  Click Here to find our brand resources on the media page.
