The 2015 product faire year started of strong, with well-attended BioResearch Product Faire™ Events at three leading research institutions in Texas in January. Between the events at the University of Texas - Austin, Texas A&M University, and the Texas Medical Center nearly 700 researchers came out to meet with sales reps from different companies and discover the best new tools and technologies to use in their labs.
With so many researchers in attendance, it is important for a company to stand out, be professional, and be accessible to the researchers to make the most of the time at the event.
At the end of each event, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. selects a sales representative who stood out and came to the event prepared to exhibit, engaged with attendees in a friendly and interested manner and showed remarkable salesmanship skills in working to meet researchers and market life science products. Whoever is chosen wins the coveted 5-Star Award.
What is the 5-Star Award? This award is given to a sales representative who embodies the 5 Stars of a good sales professional and meets the following criteria during the event:
Strong start to finish presence
Table display is attractive, provides a clear message about the company, and has informational materials to give away.
Accessible and engaged staff focused on talking with researchers instead of chekcing their phones and computers.
Researcher popularity, engage well with attendees, arrive on time and stay through the whole event.
Sales professionals prepared to represent their company and the event.
Each 5-Star Winner receives a letter, a certificate, and a link on our website with their company’s logo and a link to their company’s website. Five Star Winners can tell their colleagues, supervisors, family and friends about their outstanding work at the life science marketing events at which they exhibited.
