Trade Show Characters

Hey neighbors!

How many of you have ever been to a trade show?  You know where everybody gathers to share products, information and to network.  If you have, have you picked up on the different personality types that show up?

I am the quiet, wandering type.  I ask very few questions and generally wait for someone to speak to me to open a conversation.  If I am really interested I will ask someone about their product or service, but I normally look on.  I was always an introvert, so being able to approach people and start a conversation is a learned behavior for me.

Here are a few of the other types you might run into.

The Swag Seeker, is the person with the huge bag, that is going from booth to booth collecting anything and everything that is being given away free.  They may not even be interested in the company that is represented, but they want the freebies.

The Pushy Seller is one I am sure we have all met.  They almost pursue you down the aisle as they try to sell you on their company.  They are often loud and bold.  They do not take a no until they have almost driven you to insanity.  LOL!

Then we have the In-Your-Face attendee.  They stand way too close!  And when you take a step back, they step forward.  Many of them are the touchy type too.  They touch your shoulder as they make a point, or they clap you on the back while talking to you.

Want to see more?  Check out this site, where they have a list of Trade Show Types.  HERE  Leave a comment telling us which characters you have met, or tell us about another one.
