The Trade Fair

Many British companies have excellent products to exhibit, but fail to convert this fantastic marketing opportunity into sales simply because they can’t communicate with the visitors to the stand!

You may have one native speaker or linguist with you, but what happens when they are at lunch? Do you know how many potential leads you lose because it’s too hard to talk to you? Consider the investment you are making in the exhibition and imagine how your return could be multiplied. After a short intensive course with us you will be amazed at the difference in the response you get!

At the end of the 2 days you will all be able to welcome visitors to your stand, ask for their details, give information, tell them when someone more fluent will be available, and understand their responses. You will also learn how to speak English they can understand more easily.

 

It is really easy to please your potential customers when you can speak their language.

Show them you care enough to make the effort!
