Designing Interactive Booth Experiences at Trade Shows

Digital games that advertise your brand or tell your story can be linked directly to lead capture, turning ‘fun’ experiences into sales opportunities. The journal Occupational Health And Safety uses iPads for lead capture. A Jeopardy-style game runs on the technology at its booth, keeping attendees engaged throughout their visit.

Interactive Touchscreens

Live Demos

Interactive Installations

People are much more likely to remember a trade-show experience that invites them to interact, and they will enjoy an extra dose of entertainment without the need to request assistance from a member of staff; be it multi-touch tables or giant LED walls, these screen experiences should be designed as a way to execute an existing communication concept which suits your booth theme.

Or real estate firms could have photo opportunities where visitors could take photos with life-sized house facades and post them on social media and disseminate their exhibit past trade-show halls. Such engagements could even be used to gather leads in a more discreet manner using a contest as a channel to exchange business cards as one lead-capture technique.

Social Media

Booth experience can be boosted through digital gamification where contestants can access quizzes, contests or scavenger hunts that provide information relevant to the industry alongside incentivised prizes, such as discounts or merchandise. This can allow for greater engagement and deeper learning and discovery.

Also, keep in mind that your in-booth activities must be structured around goals and objectives. Whether your objective is lead generation, boosting product awareness, or increasing your customer conversion rates, everything you do at your trade show booth should work to achieve your overarching trade show objectives.
