EFFECTIVENESS OF TRADE EXHIBITION AS A MARKETING TOOL IN SMALL & MEDIUM SCALE ENTREPRENEURSHIP

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0   Background to the Study

The origin and traditional background of trade fairs can be traced to the time when neither good communication network of security needed for the establishment of pertinent commercial relationship were easily obtain.

The first significant trade fair in Nigeria was held in 1960 to add glamour to Nigeria Independence Celebration, through with less business motives.  The first trade fairs with international magnitude was held in 1977 and 60 countries attended.

Over the years companies have come to accept trade exhibition as an effective way of creating awareness and this invariably stimulate the demand for their product.  Trade Fair or exhibition can be effectively used regardless of the product lifecycle but it will be better applied at the introduction stage of a product.

This will allow patient consumers to know the product use and its design.

It is noteworthy that trade exhibition could be as small as one main exhibition in one room apartment, it can also be general or specialized exhibition, which could be held for commercial and non-commercial exhibition we are however interested in commercial exhibition.  In recent time trade exhibition has gained prominence in the manufacturing industries.  At present three international trade fair were held annually in Nigeria, Lagos, Kaduna&Enugu international trade fairs.   These fairs are organized by the Nigerian Association of Chamber of Commerce & Industry Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA).

The reason for organisation participation in trade exhibition as given by Christian Peterson (1972) are as follow:-

1.           It could be used to create positions impression on the mind of the potential buyers or to correct negative impressions.

2.           It could be used to serve as opportunity for a company without a regular sales force to show case their product to the public.

3.           Trade exhibition could be used to test marketing product pending commercialization.

4.           Trade exhibition could be used to test marketing product pending commercialization.
