Harris Communications and Medite GmbH turned to Proforma for help with providing professional looking, yet affordable printed materials for an upcoming tradeshow. The two companies were in need of 65 full-color meter boards and iron bases to serve as their tradeshow displays, plus 5,750 full-color catalogs to handout to tradeshow attendees. Tight deadlines had to be met, making it even more important for Harris Communications and Medite GmbH to partner with a solutions provider that could guarantee their products would arrive in time for the tradeshow.

Proforma assured their customers they could handle the job and did so, delivering all of the signage, bases and catalogs on-time. They also provided the two companies the most cost-effective, high quality options available, delivering everything on-budget.

Both Harris Communications and Medite GmbH were very satisfied with Proforma’s speed and efficiency in providing these products and printed pieces. They now recognize Proforma as a full service marketing resource for all of their tradeshow and business needs.

Kate McCall from our marketing team discusses some great strategies for your 2014 trade shows.

“When preparing to go to a tradeshow – either as an attendee or as an exhibitor – most people focus on what will go on at the event itself. Attendees may think about the booths they want to visit, and exhibitors may focus on the giveaways they imgres-1want to have on-hand. But it’s important for both attendees and exhibitors to consider everything that should happen not only at the show, but before and after it happens, as well.

With that in mind, here are tips for both attendees and exhibitors to consider when planning for their next tradeshow trips:

Before:
Attendees: Review the list of those exhibiting at the tradeshow (this will most likely be online, or given in a tradeshow packet sent to you). Then, determine your ‘plan of attack.’ Figure out…”

After a conversation with an executive at CONSOL Energy (CNX), Proforma learned the coal and gas company’s Gas Group had received the J. Brett Harvey Safety Award. This award recognizes CNX sites that have achieved one million hours without an accident. To recognize the workers’ dedication to maintaining a safe environment, CNX wanted to reward everyone in the group with embroidered jackets featuring the Harvey Safety Award logo. They turned to Proforma to find the right solution.

To meet CNX’s request, Proforma provided 400 high-quality jackets that could be embroidered. But Proforma’s work didn’t stop there. As an additional ‘thank you,’ each employee could choose one free, high-end item from a list of options. Usually CNX would take care of finding out what everyone wanted, purchasing the items and sending them out, but they didn’t want to go through the process again. They turned to Proforma to manage the entire program.

After collecting all the data and determining what each employee wanted, Proforma’s initial order for embroidered jackets turned into a sale for not only jackets, but also TVs, generators, bags and more. Proforma’s dedication to the project was rewarded when CNX asked for the same program the next year. With the relationship now established, Proforma plans on working on this incentive project for years to come.

If you have ever been out to lunch with me, you will know I love a good old juicy cheeseburger or a hot buffalo300px-BurgerKing_Double_Whopper chicken sand which. The big question for professionals is how to stay fit while on the go.  Jessica Brandenburg from our marketing team outlines some ideas for our tight work schedules.

“If you’re anything like me, you know the importance of health and the value society places on it. But sometimes, it’s downright impossible to stick to your eating habits and workout routine. Consider all of those times you were running late to an appointment, swung by Burger King for a quick (and mouth-wateringly delicious!) Whopper just to show up five minutes early with a full gut and mayonnaise on your shirt. Have you ever traveled for work, being forced to stay in a hotel for a few nights, eating food on-the-road, and staring at the all-too-small “fitness center”? Deep inside you know that the food is out of your control – there isn’t much you can do without your own stove and sauce pan. But that gym… that fitness center that is big enough for one of your thighs to squeeze in (lest you had a Whopper) and a treadmill as old as your socks…” Click here for the rest!

300px-Card_case9 times out of 10 clients ask me this question. Are business cards still needed?   Here is a guest post from Tom Zobel with some of his thoughts.

“Business cards. Are they even necessary nowadays? In an era of smartphone users and social media, when you meet someone face-to-face, is a paper exchange even needed?

Let’s think about this for a second. Say I meet someone at a business function and we want to swap information. I’m guessing we both have smartphones, social media accounts and five to 10 other ways of quickly staying in touch. Again I’m asking myself, “Do I need to bring paper into this equation?” My initial thoughts are… CLICK HER FOR THE REST”
