Also, following our experience at the Edexpo we would have to ask:

Is our booth and staff message consistent throughout our promo material?
What action do we want visitors to take on the day?
What can we give visitors to take away and consider at a later date?
What is our follow up?

Preparing a short video/IT presentation.
Preparing a consistent overview as an introduction to conversation.
Preparing large, bold and simple graphics looks effective!

As to why are you at the show? To get immediate feedback, overcome 
misconceptions, accelerate decision-making and build awareness.
