Staffing Your Booth:

What makes a Lipari Show so unique is the requirement that customers attend the show to get the deals. THERE ARE NO PREORDERS of show products. Our expectations are that there will be in excess of 6000 customers pass in front of your booth. The opportunity to sell to those customers is often determined by the quantity and quality of the staff in the booth.

  • Make sure there is adequate help in your booth. Eight hours is not a lot of time for customers to purchase eight week of product for the entire store. THEY DON’T HAVE TIME TO WAIT!
  • Make sure your staff has product knowledge on the products you represent.
  • Make sure your staff is knowledgeable of product pricing, suggested retails, promotions, deals and bonus buck promotions if available.

A good sales strategy begins with your staff and their ability to service and sell the customers

slide21

To order cases:

  • Don will confirm pricing with you
  • Freight charges will be calculated when all orders are in and you will be notified of final price prior to delivery
  • Deductions will taken to pay for cases
slide22

Safety:

Safety supersedes all rules. Always watch for and report any dangerous situations that could harm you or one of our guests. We have a excellent record of injury free shows and with you help we can keep it that way.

Fire codes require that anyone cooking with open flame have a fire extinguisher in their booth . Codes also restrict the size of propane canisters allowed into facilities If you plan to use this equipment contact Don Symonds or the Suburban Selection Showplace for the exact rules.

Sanitation:

Our Vendors have always been very considerate of the facilities where we hold our events. In fact we have received substantial discounts for how clean we leave a facility when we complete a show. We ask that booths be left vacuum ready when you leave them at the end of the show day. A $500. clean up fee will be deducted from any vendor that fails to teardown a booth or leaves a excess amount of trash in their booth.

Food Temps:

ICE WILL BE PROVIDED!

Ice will be delivered on Tuesday April 23rd and be located on the Lipari Frozen Food Trailer. Ice will be available through the day on April 24th.

Make sure your booth is equipped properly to maintain and check cold and hot food temperatures throughout the day. One ill customer is one to many.

slide23

Product Samples:

There are several options to have Product Samples delivered to the show:

  • Order your samples on the booth registration site by April 1, 2013.
  • Have your samples delivered to the Lipari Foods warehouse

  • Bring Samples with you to the show. refrigerated and frozen storage trailer will be available

All Samples will be delivered to Suburban Collection Showplace on Tuesday April 23, 2013.

slide24

Show Sample Policy:

NO BAGS MAY BE PASSED OUT AT ANY BOOTH.

Lipari has a long standing policy regarding the passing out of samples at our food shows. We strongly encourage sampling to our customers to allow them to determine taste and quality of product. Sampling should consist of small portions of product that the customer can consume at the booth. We STRONGLY DISCOURAGE passing out of product fro the customers to take from the show. We ask that you develop a list in you booth of customers and products they want sampled. Arrangements can then be made to deliver the customer retail units or full cases after the show.

Forgotten Harvest will perform food recovery for local food banks at the end of the show.

slide25

How Orders are Taken:

Lipari has created an exclusive wireless order system that allow you to place orders with only a san gun, bar codes and the press of a few buttons. This system allows for extremely fast order retrieval and offers the customer an itemized receipt of purchases showing each item, the allowances that they received, and totals of their savings while attending the show. It is imperative that every person in the booth be trained on how to operate these scan guns. Brochures are available explaining how to operate the equipment and training will take place during show setup on Tuesday April 23, 2013

WE CANNOT PUT ENOUGH EMPHASIS ON BEING PROFICENT IN THE OPERATION OF THE EQUIPMENT

It could be the difference between a bad show and an outstanding show experience.

slide26

Product Signs:

White Signs:

Regular Stock

Yellow Signs:

Market Priced items.

These items will have current prices at the time of the show on them but will be subject to change

Signs will be made for each item in the show showing the price customers will pay. THESE SIGNS WILL BE PASSED OUT ON THE MORNING OF THE SHOW. They will need to be placed next to each items so customers are aware of the price of the item. These signs are important because Lipari does not publish pricing till the day of the show. Make sure that you have adequate help to put these signs up on Wednesday Morning prior to 9:00am.

Show item Stickers will be provided when requested. These stickers have all of the product information (minus pricing) These can be used to create books or posters making it easier to order with the scan guns. Contact Don Symonds if you would like a set of these

slide27

Bonus Bucks:

Bonus Bucks are your opportunity to work the room and recognize good customers. Bonus Bucks are most often used for deeper discounts on volume purchases. Things you need to know are:

slide28

Name Tags:

Name tags are a REQUIREMENT for anyone attending the show. Because of issues related to unauthorized people exiting and entering different areas of the show our name tag will be strict. There are three types of badges that you will see:

  • EXHIBITOR – All vendors, manufacturers, brokers and booth staff are REQUIRED to wear badges
  • BUYER – Customers that will be writing orders will wear these badges.
  • GUEST – Every show brings the curious. These people may be owners or potential customers sizing us up. At any rate if they are there they are important.

TO ELIMINATE DELAYS, SUBMIT A NAME BADGE REQUEST FOR ANYONE WORKING YOUR BOOTH AT YOUR ONLINE REGISTRATION SIGHT BY APRIL 15, 2013

slide29

slide30

Celebration Reception:

The Lipari Family requests your presence for an evening networking and relaxation before the show. Please join us as we kick back a little after a hard day of show set up.
