Suggestions to Help You Engage Trade Show Attendees
Try out these tips to help you appeal to visitors at your next trade show.
When you attend a trade show, you are pitting your company directly against your competitors. While you might have superior products or service offerings, this doesn’t mean anything if you cannot engage your booth visitors. Here are some of the suggestions you should try to improve attendee engagement at your next trade show.
1) Inviting Booth Design
Humans are naturally visual beings, so the aesthetic of your booth plays a huge role in generating visitor interest. However, your booth cannot just be visually appealing; it must also be designed in a way that invites attendee engagement. For starters, make sure visitors have enough space to move around your booth. You should also have stations where attendees are invited to test out your products. Incorporating these design elements will both attract visitors and improve their levels of engagement and interest.
2) Maintain a Good Customer Service Attitude
Everyone working at your booth should maintain a positive attitude and greet all visitors warmly. There’s nothing more discouraging than encountering booth employees who seem disinterested and annoyed. So, make sure that your booth staff is smiling and actively inviting passersby to visit your booth. When your staff gives off a friendly attitude, visitors will naturally be more inclined to engage and demonstrate interest in your offerings.
3) Give Away Valuable Promotional Freebies
Offering freebies at your booth is a great way to attract visitors. This, of course, increases your chances of engaging with attendees. However, offering cheap trinkets is no longer an effective promotional strategy. Rather than this, try offering larger, more valuable prizes that visitors can win as part of a raffle. This will garner more attention for your booth and will actually prompt visitors to hang around and spend more time talking to your staff.
These are some of the suggestions you should try to boost visitor engagement at your next trade show. Interested in setting your company up with a custom booth that’s designed to optimize engagement?
