Photography is a very attractive and interesting incentive for visitors at trade shows. People love to get clicked and get super imposed pictures on impressive backgrounds.

All you need to ensure that you have your company somewhere in the picture. Since people preserve their own pictures, your brand is sure to stay with them for a long time to come.
- Keynote speakers
CEOs or Directors or brand ambassadors are great star attractions at trade shows and all the more better if you can rope them in as keynote speakers. Some trade shows also have the option of sponsoring such speakers. The presence of such a personality is bound to attract people to your booth. Appropriate publicity about keynote speakers in advance will also ensure that you have a sizeable crowd at your trade show booth.
- Added Attractions
Have added attractions like refreshments, candies for children, cash machine, prize wheels, live magician or some other entertainer, love food counter, contests and prizes, makeovers, personality analysis, etc. in your trade show booth to attract attendees.
