There are so many booths in a trade show that it becomes a necessity to stand out from the crowd to attract traffic and maximize the investment. So how do you do it? The key lies in doing something unique and here are some ideas on how to go about that.

This is a really great way of attracting attention of people visiting the fair to your booth. Click photos of attendees and stream them online. You can even superimpose the clicks on backgrounds like surf boards and news magazines. Another way to give a twist to this trend is to put up an over-sized banner with your logo and place a couple of chairs in front of it where people can sit and get clicked to carry back home. This will act as a memento for the people and marketing tool for your company.
- Live product demonstrations
A perfect way to engage visitors, live product demonstrations will create ideal amount of awareness for your products and services as well. This will also increase the brand’s recall value and help the product sell better once the people stop and observe what your product can actually do.

These speeches can be conducted at specified times and is a great mode to generate a buzz about your presence and company. In fact, you can also grab opportunities to sponsor some speakers at the event; this sponsorship will ensure that your company is promoted there and interested participants can be directed to your stall.
- Offering tea, coffee or candy
