When you head to MAGIC or any other trade show – be prepared! There’s many things you can do in advance, but the most important are 1) prepare an open to buy plan, and 2) wear your most comfortable shoes!!!!!
As with any trade show you will be dazzled. Not only with the amount and variety of the merchandise offered, but by the displays, the sales persons, the parties and probably the location. All of this is designed to separate you from your capital, but can’t do so if you are prepared. First, you need to SEE EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU BUY ANYTHING, so plan plenty of time (your buying is the most important thing you do, so don’t rush!). After you have seen ALL THE MERCHANDISE and made note about the best, go back and look again at the items that you thought were great. If they still appear to be so, write orders ACCORDING TO YOUR OPEN TO BUY PLAN. Don’t overbuy! You can always get more (no matter what they tell you).
Do the above and your trade show experience will be a profitable one. Be seduced by the event itself and you will spend the next six months trying to correct your mistakes.
