Yes! Activity in a booth is engagement through both educational and entertaining.
Once a booth captures traffic, it creates buzz and then engenders more traffic. This allows exhibitor-consumer engagement with the opportunity for lead capture, closing sales, booking appointments, etc. and ultimately relationship building.
Yes! Exhibitors are encouraged to offer a tangible door prize valued at least $50. Attendees like to win. The door prize opportunity creates excitement through pre-show and at-show promotion.
In addition, each winner is escorted to the exhibitor’s booth to claim the prize which allows the exhibitor and consumer face to face contact for lead capture and relationship building.
Our exhibitors can expect approximately 500 attendees each hour on the show floor.
