Distribute your contact details to relevant people
At the trade fair, you will be in an environment full of like-minded people. Whilst most people at the fair will indeed be trying to sell their wares to prospective buyers, people will generally be open to engaging you in conversation about your role in the sector too. As such, be sure to have a fresh copy of your business cards to hand, and you will be surprised at how effective networking with your fellow peers in the industry can be.
Acquire specialized literature for reference: Visiting various exhibitions and chatting with company representatives is an excellent way to stay up-to-date in your field. You will be able to discuss recent developments and acquire literature that could be useful when referring to technical terminology in a future translation.
Subvert the hierarchy: when you attempt to offer your services to a large company, it is easy to get your offer lost in the company hierarchy: usually, you will have to contact the administrative department, who will then have to forward your proposal and CV to the right person.
Nevertheless, at a trade conference, you have the opportunity to sidestep this hierarchy and reach the person you think you need to speak to. It may be a company’s CEO or head of marketing, there is a good chance that you will bump into them on the show floor and be able to chat with them directly – not something, that would usually be possible when using the normal contact channels.
Network with instrumental people: even if you aren’t lucky enough to bump into the ideal person at the trade fair, then you’ll still be able to chat with someone from a specific company, whether they be a sales rep or otherwise. This gives you personal contact with the organization, so when you do approach the company through conventional channels, you can mention that you enjoyed speaking to ‘such-and-such’ at the recent trade show, and would like to follow up with someone else regarding some points you raised. When the right person reads your offer, they will note you already have a personal history with the company.
If you are at the show, then you are an industry specialist- Importantly, sector-specific trade shows are places for specialists within that industry to gather, and by attending yourself, you are flagging yourself up as a knowledgeable individual in the field. When clients are looking for translators, knowing that they met you at a specialist trade fair will win you extra points.
