Self-Insurance (also referred to as self-funding) is an alternative risk transfer strategy used by tens of thousands of employers across the country to finance their group health plans and workers' compensation programs, where expenses are paid as they are incurred as opposed to paying a fixed premium to a traditional insurance company. Captive insurance is a form of self-insurance.

According to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR):
For every dollar spent on marketing your business at a trade show, the return is $3.56.
It takes just 1.4 personal calls to close a sale with an exhibition lead compared with 3.6 personal sales calls without the show lead.
Closing a sale using an exhibition lead costs an average of $625 compared with the average $1,117 cost to close a sale otherwise.
Exhibiting reaches unknown prospects. 88% of exhibition attendees have not been called on by a salesperson in the past year.
And, the sales continue even after the show closes because 64% of attendees share information with 4+ people upon returning to the office.
