Quick Tips for Marketing Your Tradeshow Booth in 2021

Marketing Your Tradeshow Booth

As event planners navigate the latest best practices for in-person events, one component that certainly can’t be ignored is a clear tradeshow marketing strategy. But how have the guidelines evolved in this new, socially distanced realm?

We offer up some quick tips for creating an effective tradeshow marketing strategy in 2021.

Be ready to turn new attendees into devoted customers.

One of the unquestionable benefits of tradeshows is the ability to reach a larger audience. Of course, that also means you’re contending with a ton of other exhibitors. As an effect, your tradeshow marketing should have even more importance on creating your own space and your own community, and driving that branding marketing message through that community.

Don’t miss your chance to interact with these new attendees. Use your tradeshow marketing messages, to convert some of those casual attendees into devoted customers who may become raving fans in the future. After all, more involved attendees lead to a larger community that can help spread the word for your brand.

As more hybrid events continue to happen, communicate clearly—and think through which element you want to promote first. 


As vaccines continue to roll out and hybrid events become more prevalent, audiences need to really recognize the difference between the virtual and in-person tradeshow experiences—and the value of each.

Establishments are reconsidering some of their events because some attendance still isn’t what it used to be. This begs the question… does your brand really need to be there in person. Brands need to look at their event assortment and think, ‘this one is better suited for a digital setting. And at this other one, face-to-face connections are really necessary so that’s better in person.’ Or, figure out a program where the in-person event has a distinct experience that you can’t duplicate in the virtual environment.

TOP 4 BENEFITS OF HAVING A TRADE SHOW PHOTO BOOTH

Find out the 4 reasons why you should rent a trade show photo booth for your next get-together.

The status of trade show photo booth rentals has gone through the roof in the last few years. It seems like they would be vanishing out because we have tools like Instagram and Tik-Tok in the palms of our hands.

But the reverse is in fact true.

More individuals search for photo booths than they do for any other lead generation tool. If you go to any trade show marketing website, you’ll see loads of recommendations for booths available to you.

So why the rage?

THEY’RE REASONABLE

You have heard the expression “A picture is worth a thousand words.” But check the pricing of trade show photo booths and see for yourself.

You’re usually charged by the hour, so you can decide to have a photo booth at the event for only part of the show if you’re on a tight budget. Photo booth prices run lower than most other entertainment choices that you might be considering.

They are usually even lower than getting real photographers.

THEY ARE GOOD FOR ANY EVENT

When you think of photo booths, your attention might go to weddings. But they’re fitting and add fun at just about every event you can think of.

Got a trade show coming up? Add a photo booth.

Graduation, baby shower, birthday? A photo booth works great for them all and more.

THEY DON’T ADD MORE WORK TO YOUR PLATE

If you’re planning on attending a trade show, you know firsthand that arranging a show takes a lot of work.

If you choose to add a trade show photo booth as entertainment, you’re not adding more work to your list of responsibilities. Our company will come to set up and clean up without you having to do any of the extra work.

A staff member stays at the booth for the totality of the event to make sure everything runs smooth and your visitors have the best possible experience they can. You don’t have to fear anything when you rent a photo booth from Popshap!

THEY’RE TOTALLY CUSTOMIZABLE

If you’re concerned about finding the right entertainment that fits into the theme of your trade show booth, look no further.

Trade show photo booths can be customized to fit any possible show or booth theme you’ve come up with. You can brand the borders and the colors on your photo strips. This gives your trade show booth a personal touch that folks will carry with them long after the event is over.

Taking the speculation out of your trade show will make it a less nerve-wracking experience for you. A photo booth rental company like us with this much experience will let you exhale easily while visitors capture priceless memories.

So, you are looking for more ways to make your trade show booth look its best at your next event; you came to the right place because a custom digital trade show display is one of the best marketing tools to grab attention and generate interest in possible customers and clients. A good trade show digital display doesn’t have to be too much work or too expensive.

  1. Digital Displays Make Your Booth More Attractive-

When you are presenting at a trade show, your main goal should be to show attendees all about what you do and how you can support them with whatever idea you have. The catch is — present your brand well. Instead of bringing attendees on the show floor, connect with them through a digital trade show display! Allow your target audience to ask questions or schedule a demo on the interactive kiosk. It’s an informal and fun way to display! You should make your booth in such a way that individuals going by will notice and get captivated to know what you are proposing.

  1. Go for modern strategies-

In most cases, brands think it’s necessary to have a mix of both traditional and modern designs. One really good thing about going with only interactive technology for a trade show is that they are very useful and work like building blocks. You can reorganize them as per your requirement to better suit your booth needs. Yes, some say that digital trade show display technology is expensive compared to traditional designs, but they pay for themselves and prove to be very beneficial in shows, particularly if you are trying to promote many things at the same time. When you are going to the trade show, you need to be very picky with your brand design so the advertising can stop audiences.

To get the best outcomes and make your trade show booth stand out, partner with a company like ours that specializes in custom trade show digital signage and related services. If interested, let’s chat.

Tips for Success at This Year’s White Label World Expo

As we were making plans to attend the White Label World Expo in Las Vegas. It made me reflect on how important trade shows are to the American economy. There are so many opportunities at a trade show and depending on your strategy there could be a number of different outcomes.

Are you planning to reach a broader customer base, or do you want to pitch a physical product to your target audience? One of the greatest ways to do that is with trade shows.

The central point of such trade shows should be the value of the digital signage displays and trade show kiosks. Your trade show booth has a chance to leave a long-lasting impression on the minds of folks if you make a dapper and powerful product display.

Marketing your brand is very important when it comes to winning at the White Label World Expo. It may have become a tad more relevant as we try to return to some kind of normalcy.

Interactive Trade Show Kiosk

A modernized atmosphere in the middle of a trade show floor can help you score some major points among the guests. Getting flabbergasted by the chaos and bustle in a trade show is normal. Most attendees experience multiple sales pitches and brand messages from all sides which may swamp them.

Helping with a charging station and place to relax in the middle of all the bedlam can make them open to discovering new ideas and maybe even your offer. I can tell you one thing, your staff at the booth will have a better shot at getting concrete leads, and hence, a higher chance of a sale. You can create interactive double decks to control the space for private meetings.

Engaging Touch Table Sessions

You can have a precise set of interactive branded content tailor-made for the attendees. Put it on a touch table to make it even more personal. It will help keep them super engaged. The interactive touch tables often tend to be more stimulating and help foster a better bond with your target audience.

You can have different types of touch screens displays at your trade show booth, which can display testimonials or product demos.

Boost Your Trade Show ROI with Touch Table Rentals

You can boost your ROI considerably at your next trade show. What’s our secret formula you ask? Well, the answer is quite simple: Interactive kiosks and touch table rentals.

Now we would be lying if we didn’t mention to start planning early!

We can’t tell you how many of our clients wait until the last minute to book their touch table rentals to start their trade show preparations. If your next trade show is three months from out, you should definitely be getting ready today. You’ve all heard the saying, “Time is money.” If you use the time to your benefit and reserve your touch table rentals early, you can make even more money at your next show.

Recently, we’ve studied some of our past trade show projects. What we’ve found is that many of our clients could have cut their trade show costs by 25% if they had started preparing for the show just 3-4 months ahead of the event.

If you decrease your show-related expenditures, the end result will be enormous increases in your event marketing ROI.

Below are some instructions to help you see the benefits of touch table rentals and understand the major savings by preparing for your show three or more months early:

  1. Order your touch table rentals and graphics now. There are several rewards to choosing touch table rentals a few months early, including 1) a greater number of touch tables to choose from (longer lead times won’t be a worry), 2) no need to rush any customized services, and 3) ground shipping can be used, rather than rushed shipping. Depending on how large your shipment is, using ground shipping alone will save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars depending on where it’s shipping too.
  2. Fine-tune your interactive marketing strategy early on. If you’ve crafted a well-researched, all-inclusive, and customer-focused trade show marketing campaign, you’ll have a much better post-show result. Ordering your pre-and post-show marketing materials for your touch table rentals early will allow you to get marketing content done sooner and for less than a rushed job. Then you’ll be able to get a jump start on your competition since you’ll be building interest in your company at an earlier stage.

4 Proven Interactive Trade Show Kiosk Strategies Major Brands Use

Are you in charge of planning a trade show or event? If you want to make your folks feel great about your booth, there is ONE GIANT secret that can give you major success… it’s an interactive trade show kiosk.

By now it shouldn’t be a secret but making your trade show booth interactive, makes it more memorable.

To help you see success on the trade show floor we are going to cover some of the best tips, tricks, and proven systems for creating more involvement (and entertainment!) at your booth with an interactive trade show kiosk.

Interactive touch screen kiosk solutions

ATTENDEE participation

Attendee participation is dire to a successful event. Invite as much involvement with your interactive trade show kiosk as you possibly can. And remember, you want feedback before, during, and after your event.

Don’t wait until a few days after the show is over to survey your audience do it right there on the spot, from your interactive trade show kiosk.

Your goal from the get-go is to get as many leads and as much feedback as possible.  Example: If the demonstrations are running long and boring your audience, use your interactive trade show kiosk to gain input and then instantly use that feedback to make real-time changes. Now that’s how you make an adjustment on the fly! Attendees will feel heard and empowered.

DEMOS that include attendees

Your audience wants to interact that is why they are at the trade show. If your theme is “Building Together,” don’t have one person do all the talking. Instead use creative content on your interactive trade show kiosk to showcase reviews, create games, or puzzles, display interviews all from the touch device.

Folks remember what they do. The key thing is this: Don’t tell them about it. Show them and involve them.

ENTERTAINMENT that involves

One of the amazing things about an interactive trade show kiosk is it has so many options. Humor is characteristically interactive because laughter connects people. It’s also great medicine that can revive life in your booth.

Consider this: an interactive photo booth that allows you to change backgrounds and add fun images to the picture. Another fun feature an interactive trade show kiosk has could be a mind-reading game, a sing-along showcase, or even live streaming on social media.

The point is, don’t forget to include the interactive fun factor at your booth.

GAMES and contests

This is one of the main reasons why brands love their interactive trade show kiosk… The games and contests. With Popshaps software you can include, game shows like “Name that Tune” and “Family Feud”, and so much more. Many of your attendees are competitive individuals. Put them in the spotlight and generate enjoyment with an interactive game that ends with prizes and rewards.

With our kiosks software, there are even games that can consist of your entire audience with smartphone polling apps.

Next, if you can budget for it, have a production partner run the technical side of your trade show booth. The big trend will be toward hybrid events with some attendees in person and some joining via a virtual connection. A company like Popshap can make your entire event look and feel unforgettable.
