Trade Show Exhibits and Workshops

​CARL has been hired by several companies to attend and create a carving display to increase traffic to their booths at trade shows  Instead of attendees strolling by without glancing at their booth, people stop and stare, Then they slowly walk over and ask “what are you doing?”  The results have been amazing. 

This Engages the attendee in conversation and 9 times out of 10 they ask , “So what are you selling? Carl gives a brief summary of the products or services represented and introduces them to the sales rep. However, most of the time, Carl becomes a needed sales additional sales rep.  This comes in very handy as the booth becomes quite busy or if the sales rep has to take a break.

Since his background is public speaking, sales and business consulting, Carl represents the companies well.  He is also hired by the company to provide sales training to the Sales reps working the booth.
