Some of our favorite tips at trade shows:

1.  Turn down the screen brightness to 30%.

2.  Get rid of all apps except the ones you will be using.

3.  Use soothing colors; tensions are high enough at trade shows!

4.  Use a rubber cover; the standard iPad cover will give some people a skin rash.

5.  Connect only to your network; don’t expect the iPad to connect to the Internet at a trade show.

6.  Train your reps on the iPad and role play for a while; it’s different than a PC or an iPhone.

7.  Don’t plan on streaming video; it will work before the show starts (the operative word in the sentence is “before”).

8.  Put a protective clear sheet on every iPad or they will get scratched.

9.  Lock the iPads in a case in your closet at night, not under your counters where they can be found by every security guard and their friends who have keys that work on every trade show cabinet in the world.

10. Make a presentation and engagement plan that is simple enough for every rep to follow, using the iPads, of course.
