You could always offer the trade shows a contra deal to promote their show if they help you promote your site. Perhaps offer placing a banner on your page in exchange for including your brochure in the visitir material. To start you may have to offer a lont period of promotion until you traffic increases.

Also, either drop in to the show or get a friend to drop in to make sure your brochure is included. Not saying that they will reneg on the deal, but having been invloved in a lot of trade shows it is easy to overlook something in the final rush.

All the best Maurice.
