Trade shows and business expos are a competitive and hectic environment as each exhibitor is trying to grab the attention of attendees. This makes it important to know how to turn this opportunity into an extraordinary business success. If you have signed up to exhibit your products at a trade show, here’s what you need to do:
Build an Attention-Grabbing Booth
An eye-catching booth can get your business noticed in the bustling exhibition hall. You can use fabric trade show displays, and retractable banner stands with high-quality graphics to display your brand logo, products, and marketing messages. A well-rounded booth with catchy trade show displays, attractive promotional items, and contest opportunities can help to engage with your target audience and stand out from your competitors. It can also help to create a lasting impression in the minds of potential clients. Also, make sure your booth is well lit.
These days multimedia has become a common sight at exhibitions. A combination of text, sounds, images, lights, and movement lets you present information in many different ways. Other types of useful multimedia include animation, custom video, interactive games, augmented and virtual reality. By incorporating multimedia into your trade show display, you can educate attendees, capture attention, engage your audience, and leave a lasting impression on your brand. It can help to tell your story and evoke emotion from your audience.
Have an Appealing Aroma
One way to get your brand noticed is through delicious smells. You can entice your customers to stop by your trade show booth by offering aromatic food and beverages such as cookies, popcorn, coffee, tea, wine, etc. Attendees are drawn to these smells, and they will appreciate the free snacks and beverages. Have your staff to serve these foods to engage in conversation with booth visitors and identify prospective customers. You can also spray your exhibit with attractive scents that come in the form of electric candles, air cannons, and aerosol cans.
Grab Attention in Seven Seconds
You only have about seven seconds to grab your customers’ attention. Use this time to convey who you are and what you offer in a captivating way. You can make use of promotional giveaways such as providing discounts or giving away thumb drives, wearables, glassware, writing instruments, calendars, office items, etc. This creates a buzz around your booth and is a great way of making sure your brand is remembered long after the event. By offering freebies, you can collect the contact details of your customers and make a database of prospects based on the buying potential.
