(Washington, D.C.-March 5) Exhibitors at the 2010 International Dairy Show can now generate more pre-show excitement around their booth by upgrading to the silver or gold listing on the show website, www.dairyshow.com. The upgraded listings give exhibitors the capability to upload press releases, post product information with images and take advantage of an expanded print listing in the Program & Exhibit Guide. The International Dairy Show will be held September 13-15, 2010, at the Dallas Convention Center.
The 2010 International Dairy Show, presented by the International Dairy Foods Association, is offering exhibitors a variety of tools to connect with and engage attendees. For example, by upgrading their listing to silver or gold, exhibiting companies will have expanded exposure on ChirpE, a mobile application from a2z, Inc. Attendees can use ChirpE for free on any major smartphone to search for products, exhibitors and view the interactive floor plan. It also offers integration with social media applications Twitter and LinkedIn. In addition, IDFA will be able to use ChirpE to disseminate information to attendees during the three day event.
"We are always looking for more efficient and cost effective ways for exhibitors to brand their presence at the show," said Robin Cornelison, trade show manager for IDFA. "We hope these new upgrades, mobile applications and integration with social media will allow attendees and exhibitors to connect in many ways."
