The purpose of being involved in a tradeshow is to expose your business and it is easier since the traffic is already present and you have to make sure that you joined the right event for your business.

Good tips. #5 is especially important - the follow up! I can't tell you how many companies I talk to that have gone to tradeshows, gathered a pile of business cards, and then never followed up! And the #1 tip for tradeshow marketing is to first really question whether you should be there, and if so whether you need to have a booth. As you say - very expensive, and it really has to be something you plan for and know how to use it to drive sales.
