Cost-Shared Program:

If you are attending a trade show for the first time, you might not be aware of all the logistics and loose time trying to understand them, instead of meeting with clients. VMI offers you the possibility to attend one or many trade shows at a minimal cost, and make a noticeable presence on your first attendance! We also offer the service to match you with other companies to share the costs.

Advantages of using VMI are:

  • Already known on many trade shows
  • Known by many clients in the industry
  • Same person for three years
  • Available for trade shows in French, English or Spanish
  • Sharing the cost for one person: registration, transportation, meals, incentive
  • Template for a profile sheet
  • Cost of becoming a member of the association if necessary, which remains the property of VMI
  • Receiving leads within 48 hours
  • Receiving an Excel form with all contacts, comments, and profiles (French or English only)
  • Receiving a general report on the trade show (French or English only)

Your budget will go directly to promote your destination or business and not in operating costs or the analysis of a new market.
