It’s 2016 and business needs doing. Yes, you have the Internet and social media – fine tools to help you function as an international business – but Go Fair ltd believes that nothing can beat the effectiveness of attending exhibitions, fairs and tradeshows. Nothing compares to getting to know the people you’re going to sign contracts with and no online ad can sell your product the way a live demonstration can.

To this end, we’ve been writing about big business events happening all over the world and in January, we’re taking a short look at Friedrichshafen – an industrial city in Germany located on Lake Constance. It’s close to both Austria and Switzerland, which makes it an ideal place to travel for business given its great infrastructure and international position.

You don’t necessarily need to have the biggest budget to attend any of these events as Go Fair ltd helps you book the most affordable accommodation and makes travelling effortless.

Friedrichshafen has a rich history in the avionic and aviation industries, which is alive during AERO 2016. World-class companies present the latest in communication systems, navigation devices, displays and weather radars among many. Airline companies from around the world attend every year and compete for the best deals. The conference track features top experts in the field give over 100 lectures and workshops. AERO is your ticket for the mile high club.

PRO TIP: In order to save time, you should best consider approaching your business trip as a single service package and approach an agency to do it for you. You get the best combination of prices, location, flights and airport transport all at once – the most optimal solution. Go Fair ltd is more than prepared to help you get every single detail right about your travel plans.

It’s not an exaggeration to say EUROBIKE 2016 is going to be a family reunion for the entire cycling world, which remains close-knit and united. From the EUROBIKE Award to the hotly anticipated DEMO DAY, this tradeshow brings thousands upon thousands each year and 2016 is no exception. See the newest trends launched and the best equipment paraded. Strengthen old partnerships and create new ones.

PRO TIP: When narrowing down hotel options, consider the distance from the fairgrounds and public transport options. Sometimes booking a hotel right next to an exhibition centre is not a good fit for your budget, so you might need to look into inexpensive options in the outskirts, but which have direct lines to the event. You save money and still cut down on commuting.

Since its inception 20 years ago as a niche trade fair, OUTDOOR has grown into one of the most celebrated events for the outdoors industry on a global scale. You have big business, big sales and big products all housed in one place. If you seek to make an impact, this is the place to start. All trends are shaped here first and the chance to reach the widest possible audience is the number one reason to consider attending.

PRO TIP: The earlier you start on your travel plans, the easier it will be to find hotels. You have more hotels to choose from across price ranges so you can budget accordingly based on how many people will be in your party and most hotels have lower rates months before the event. The closer you get to the date, the higher prices spike.
