Trade shows are a must-have in B2B marketing, but there is the cost of the show and the people (people are often 2X the cost of the show).  The good thing is that show leads take 20% fewer touches to close, but shows are seldom measured by their revenue return.  Victor Kippes, founder and CEO of Validar, is our guest today and  he explains how to measure the revenue contribution and how to avoid cutting shows from the budget.  He tells you how to answer:  “Was that show worth it?”  The host is Jim Obermayer
