The value of exhibitions for exhibitors and visitors

Ryan Legge: I think there's a growing perception that printed materials and the value of them and exhibition displays or trade-shows is reducing as digital media takes off, and that's a difficult thing to overcome, certainly for newer businesses that don't necessarily have experience to back up their perceptions. Encouraging people to engage with new business experiences that will have an initial outlay cost but not necessarily a guaranteed ROI is always going to be difficult. I agree with your sentiment "need to work harder to attract newcomers from outside" but wonder how you would suggest achieving this?
