Her latest publication The What, Why, and How of Attending Trade Shows in Germany answers numerous questions that newcomers to German trade shows would typically have: “What do I need to consider when looking at German events? What show(s) can help me achieve my identified business goals in my specific industry? How can I make the most of my trade show participation and increase my return on investment? What approach should I – as a visitor – take when it comes to discussing business with Germans? How can I – as an exhibitor – attract the local target audience?” In short, “What do I need to know to be successful?”
