5 Reasons Why You Need a Trade Show Management Team

One of the most effective ways of keeping your business competitive is to present at industry trade shows. For events like this, it’s all about putting your company’s best foot forward and staying apprised of changes in your industry. If you are a business owner or an executive, you know that shows are one important component of an overall marketing strategy. What you might not know is that a third-party vendor can help you by building and handling the logistics of your show booth.

Here are some of the compelling reasons to hire a third-party management team.

1. It Saves You Time

Time is hard to come by these days, and whenever you can delegate time-consuming and tedious work to someone else, that frees up time to focus on other things. The ability to have someone outside of your business developing and building your booth means you and your own team can spend less time worrying about the event preparation, and more time worrying about your bottom line.

2. You Get Second Opinions

These are management teams with valuable experience. No matter how much you try to foster discussion and independent thinking in your business, at some point, it is possible to get stuck on one idea and lose touch with other ways of doing things. Having experts with novel ideas on how to utilize your trade show booth can help you regain a sense of perspective.

3. You Get New Contacts

Networking is all about who you know. Trade show management experts know a lot of people, and what better way to position yourself as a preeminent leader in your industry than to network through experts? You get a number of benefits from simply talking to people who know other people.

4. It Makes Financial Sense

One big benefit to such events is the way it helps you market your company. Advertising can be a shot in the dark sometimes, but you know that anyone at the trade show inherently has some interest in the kind of product or service your company provides. The money you put towards building your trade show exhibit can pay dividends later when you get new clients and contacts.

5. They Know Trade Shows

Since the point of a trade show exhibit is about marketing your company, you should turn to the people who build exceptional exhibits for a living. You might know your company, and even your industry, but a management team know these type of events best. Let them help you with their expertise.

Singers, Bands & the Artist Management Team

As singers and bands compete for the ears of music industry pro’s, hoping to become the next greatest pop icon, mangers and the relationships with their acts have become increasingly important. With the evolution of technology, the internet and fledgling record labels, trying to compete for the next money making act, you can be sure that artist managers have their plates full sifting through myriads of press kits and demos trying to pick the needle out of the haystack.

With each demo that is sent out, artists wait in anticipation of what might become their next step in their artist career pathway. Most of the time, however, the group or singer is met with the, “Thanks for your submission, but no thanks,” letter at the door. What can singers and bands do to increase their odds of developing a relationship with an artist manager? Good question – Let’s look at some ideas and concepts that you can put to work as you try to move your career forward.

As a former talent booking agent with the William Morris Agency and as the owner of http://www.reelmusician.com, I can tell you that one of the biggest walls that is built between artist managers and acts is a singer or group that is not prepared. They want the representation, but not the responsibility and financial demands that are placed upon them in the initial phase of their careers. They want someone to hold their hand and make it happen for them before they have sunk initial investments whether time, money or emotional investments that being maturity and basic music business knowledge and understanding. With this wall up you can forget it. There’s too much competition out there for a manager to waste their time – Would you? – Of course not and neither will they. Therefore, you make it your first priority to be prepared.

How do you prepare yourself or your band you ask? – Great question. Start with your music. Is your music the same run of the mill sound that’s already out there at countless levels? Does your music or style lend itself to marketing, or can if be differentiated from scores of others already signed to the majors? Be honest here. Quite honestly many individuals or acts have copied the sound of some other act and have not fully matured into developing their own sound. There’s nothing wrong with having musical influences, every act out there will tell you who has captured their musical hearts, but your sound has got to sound like you.

What does your press kit look like that you are sending out? Is it self-produced with fairly good looking pictures, bios, etc, or is it even a step below that? Your press kit has to shine and grab the attention of your music industry pros or you can forget it. Consider having your press kits reviewed and re-worked where necessary. You’re really missing the ball if you don’t have not only a professional looking press kit, but one that is specifically designed to get your act through the obscure doors of the music industry.

What are you doing now that is worthy of representation? Is it a dream or a real concrete musical idea that will grab the hearts of your listeners? Your listeners have to fall in love with your music. All it takes is one individual with a little clout at a record label to fall in love with your music for them to start talking you up in the halls. And with a little clout, nobody wants to be on the wrong side of the aisle on any given project, so therefore, the ball starts to roll. That’s how it usually works and good managers know this.

When you start out looking for a good manager you want to find out as best you can how authentic, honest and obviously go-getters they are. When you start to approach managers, understand that they only have so much time and resources. Da you say. Well put that information into practice. As you approach managers, what can you do to not only make their lives and jobs easier, but to let them know that you are not a “taker.” Do you know how many individuals, on a regular basis, who approach us wanting to be stars, who want us to invest all of our time and resources without offering anything in return? – Countless. Don’t do that. Offer something to your manager. Offer to help pay for the phones, press kits, postage, etc on behalf of your act. Now you’ve got the attention of the manager. He or she now knows that you are not a taker and are a serious contender in the music industry campaign. Never thought about that did you?

When you start to approach managers, your press kits, as previously detailed, need to exude professionalism. You will want to include a logo that has been specifically designed for you or your act. This logo should be remember able and characteristic of the emotional tone you want the act to initially portray and look like. Put this logo on all of your material including websites, pictures, bios, CD’s, etc. Don’t send out press kits without a logo. There is a lot of software out there to help you with logo creation, but if you need further help you may contact us [email protected] or 615-300-5030 and we can help you with it.

In closing your approaching artist managers with the “We’ve got a great attitude and would like to do our part,” mentality will go along ways. Make sure that the demos you are sending out, are worthy to roll down the halls of the record labels with artist press kits that shine and show detailed experience and marketing knowledge sure to grab the attention of A&R directors. Do your part and hopefully one day an artist manager will do theirs on your behalf.

Vehicle Insurance Fraud in Russia Affects Both Insurance Companies and Their Customers

Today car owners in Russia are facing an unusual and ridiculous problem, massively. It often occurs that owners cannot obtain an insurance coverage for their cars because of the shortage of blank contract forms, as insurance companies’ managers are telling them. Such cases were completely unknown just three years ago. Russian lawyers community is investigating this problematic situation which affects the growth of Russian vehicle insurance segment.

Such shortages of blank forms are usually occurring in case one is trying to get a minimum compulsory third-party liability insurance (or OSAGO) contract. So what could cause the so-called ‘shortage’ of blank forms for this type of insurance contract? It appears that it is not the fault of insurance companies’ printers; the reason is the greed of insurance companies which have developed a peculiar ‘marketing scheme’. They are taking advantage of the problems of car owners who are obliged to obtain this insurance according to the law.

So, the shortage of blank forms of OSAGO insurance contracts is being created in purpose. Insurance companies are taking this step in order to boost sales of other their products and services. Particularly, when a customer comes to an insurance company wishing to get an OSAGO contract, he or she is then proposed to sign a life, health or property insurance contract as well. And in case the customer refuses from this additional service, company’s managers say that there are no blank forms for OSAGO contracts. The customer cannot verify this statement of course and has either to agree getting this extra insurance service or just leave.

Basically, in such a situation car owners can complain to the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service of Russia, the Central Bank of Russia or to the Russian Association of Motor Insurers. But practice shows that such complaints do not help much: the only result you can get is a formal report from a controller about an inspection that was made in the company and about the lack of law breaches in this company’s actions. Consequently people are turning to insurance lawyers in Russia more and more often.

Still, there is an option. In fact, the service of vehicle insurance (including OSAGO contracts) is a public agreement according to the Article #426 of the Civil Code of Russian Federation and therefore an insurance company does not have a right to refuse this service to a customer. It does not have a right to force a person to acquire extra services prior to getting an OSAGO contract as well.

In case you have faced such an illegal refusal from corporate insurance manager, you need to write down a formal request to sign an OSAGO contract on paper. You should attach copies of all necessary documents to it, provide your phone number and register it in the insurance company’s branch office (making sure it is sealed). Most probably, in such a case tomorrow they will call you and propose to come again to their office to sign the insurance contract without persuading you to accept any extra conditions.

Now let us investigate the situation with Russian insurance companies refusing to sign third party liability (usually shortened as KASKO) contracts.

Russian insurance companies are having certain problems in this sphere themselves. Central offices are cancelling KASKO services in regional branch offices because of drastic growth of customer fraud which economic security services of branch offices are failing to mitigate.

The reason is that the number of insurance fraud ‘business’ schemes which include acquiring an insurance contract for an expensive car and then doing purposeful damage to it (such as cutting the upholstery, making scratches or fissures on the glass) has grown several times during the last two years. Thus, a car owner can receive the compensation from the insurer which is calculated based upon official car dealers’ prices for repair parts. At the same time, the damaged car would be actually repaired at a usual low-cost repair shop.

Flaws in Russian insurance legislation result in such fraud schemes being very profitable for those who choose this kind of ‘business’. According to information received by Russian lawyers during their professional activities, such schemes are now increasingly used by people who were not involved in fraud schemes earlier.

Economic security departments of insurance companies cannot effectively counter such fraud attempts because they do not have any legal means to perform deep investigations. All they can do is to recommend refusing such claims. But sometimes it makes the situation even worse for an insurer when a car owner whose claim was refused wins this case in a court and receives a sum even bigger than was claimed initially.

The emerging wave of such fabricated insurance claims in Russia has urged many insurance companies to stop providing the service of KASKO insurance and even to quit the Russian insurance market at all. The major part of Russian-based insurance companies used to have the vehicle insurance services as their primary source of income and did not completely realize how many risks are there in this niche; so now these businesses are having a hard time.

So here is an advice for car owners willing to get a vehicle insurance contract in Russia from Russian insurance lawyers. It is better to be very careful when choosing an insurance provider: in case of this company’s bankruptcy you would not be able to claim your payment via the Russian Association of Motor Insurers as this organization can only help to compensate losses by OSAGO contracts. Therefore, you would have register as a creditor in the formal bankruptcy procedure, and the more creditors there would be, the smaller chances of getting some compensation you would have.
