Commission from sales
Your Fair will take between 5% - 15% commission on all sales made on your Fairs e-commerce platform. 5%-10% from current exhibitors, 10%-15% from lapsed exhibitors. Your fair sales team can offer lower commissions from sales on the e-commerce platform to close stand sales.
Current Exhibitors will be charged £240 per year to use the platform, lapsed exhibitors will be charged £1000 per year. Your fair sales team can offer a free subscription to the e-commerce platform for 1 year to close stand sales.
Advertising spaces on your fairs e-commerce platform will be sold 365. Your fair sales team can offer free ad space on the platform to close stand sales and manage ad spaces directly from the control panel.
Harness your data
WeFair will show your fair team how to harness your existing data and grow new audiences through digital marketing. We will set your fair up for the future.
Your WeFair platform is designed to make it easy for your exhibitors to log in and manage their own shop section, and easy for you to edit all content and monitor the preformance.
Trade fairs have been inviting 3rd party ecommerce platforms to partner with their fairs for over 10 years. These ecommerce platforms have grown fat and super valuable through their access to Fairs super targeted exhibitor and visitor audience with little or no benefit to the Fairs who have hosted them.
This has got to change! Looking at the chronology above it's only a matter of time before exhibitors become completely reliant on these 3rd party platforms reducing the need for Fairs.
Whilst protecting the future of your fair now you can start creating a second revenue stream immediately by way of servicing your exhibitors with a transactional ecommerce platform 365.
