Before The Trade Show
Trade show games are a great way to connect with customers, but if you don’t plan ahead you could end up shooting yourself in the foot. Make use of your social media and newsletter to let current clients know that you’ll be at the trade show and find out from the organizers if they’re doing any advertising on social media. If they are, find out how you can advertise your game/booth.
Selecting Your Game
The best games for a trade show would be interactive games, which allow contestants to engage with one another and with your booth. You need to ensure that the information that customers are using to play the game, is relevant to your booth.
Trivia Games are a great way to reel in potential customers. Most people like to be a “smartie pants”, making use of a trivia game is a great way to get people to memorize information about your product or service. The best part is that this game can be played individually or in teams. Just remember to make everyone a winner as they climb the “trivia ladder” to success, even if they receive a company sticker for participation.
Match or No Match is our newest game. This is a really fun trade show game where you’ll need at least 2 – 4 participants, who’ll do their utmost to match their answers, in line with audience answers. The contestant that has the most matched answers at the end of a round, would win. This is a great trade show game is it relies on audience participation as well as contestant participation. Both sides would be kept entertained and due to the size of the audience, more people will be attracted to the booth to find out what is going on.
