Avocados From Mexico wanted to communicate its new brand direction to influential retail produce buyers at the Produce Marketing Association Fresh Summit Convention and Expo in Orlando, FL. There were several time and budget constraints to consider in developing a full 360-degree trade show program.
Trade show outreach must be able to break through expo show clutter while providing a memorable live brand event. PMA attendee’s time is scarce with over 1,000 booths to explore, it was important to be able to increase in booth meeting space and create buzz-generating experiences to peek their interest. As the category leader, Avocados From Mexico’s goal is to lead trade excellence by providing best-in-class tools for the shopper experience to help drive consideration throughout the entire path to purchase cycle. PMA is the show where this new programming is introduced to key audiences.
