Email boostTakes 10 minutes to read
Request a special, competition or new product be included in one of two emails (pre-show, great start/first day email).
During pre and post-show marketing (and during the first show day), we send out email newsletters to our extensive database. You can leverage these emails to promote your brand or product.

Drive traffic to your profile
Email boosts drive visitor traffic to your special, competition or new product.
Show emails are sent to our extensive visitor database pre, during and post-show. Email boosts include a headline, image and blurb, as well as the text about a special.
Please see the example below:
In most circumstances, only boosted specials, competitions and new products will be included in Show emails. In some cases, we may choose to highlight non-boosted specials, competitions or new products if we feel they are of strong interest to our visitor database. In these cases, boosted items will always appear first.
