Our infrastructure allows the Vaudra Ltd. investigators to frequently attend industry related tradeshows in the U.S. to further develop ongoing investigations. We typically are able to cost share the expenses between multiple brand owners, making this an affordable option to survey a brand’s presence at a particular trade show. Attendance to the show requires preparation, and our findings often enhance investigative efforts.
Although the tradeshow exhibitors are typically the main attraction, these venues also may allow us to meet up with other targets of investigation who may be in attendance, further building rapport. Tradeshows offer a unique opportunity to have face-to-face interactions, which can impact the course of the investigation. Although brand owners and company representatives may attend these tradeshows in search of counterfeit and diverted product, using an experienced investigator is often a much better option to achieve those objectives.
