Custom Exhibit Display Company, Gilbert, Discusses Ideas for Fun Events to Have at Your Booth that Capture Attention

MELVILLE, N.Y., Dec. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Custom exhibit displays company, Gilbert, lists four ways to capture the attention of trade show attendees with fun events.

Competition for the attention of trade show attendees can be fierce. An attractive, and well-designed booth will draw a great deal of attention. But, hosting fun events at a beautiful and expertly designed booth brings a lot more attention. Trade show booth designer, Gilbert, lists four ways to engage attendees:

Photo booth "parties." Photo booths aren't just for weddings anymore. Vendors are starting to use them at trade shows to attract attendees to their booth. Offer attendees use of a photo booth, and you may become the most popular vendor at the event. Plus, you can let attendees take pictures with props that promote your brand and enjoy free marketing when they share their photos on social media.

Wi-Fi "parties." Believe it or not, many trade shows have terrible Wi-Fi. Make your booth the saving grace of the trade show by hosting a Wi-Fi party. Create a mini café in your booth and let attendees sit back and enjoy the free Wi-Fi you provide. Attendees will take note of your goodwill, and you'll enjoy better brand awareness and an increase in the number of favorable impressions your company receives.

DIY "parties." Do It Yourself activities are popular. If possible, create a DIY event for attendees. For example, attendees could plant a flower and take it home in a pot with your branding on it. You could also show attendees how to fix common problems with their phones and let them try to fix the problem at your booth with the help of coaches. Be sure that the activity you offer is related to your product, service, or brand if you decide to host a DIY event.

Games. Attract attendees to your booth with a game. Give prizes away to winners and watch as word spreads about your booth. Trivia and other guessing games are popular options.
