Engaging your attendees as much as possible is crucial at a show as big as NACS 2023 in order to achieve maximum ROI. With thousands of exhibitors competing for attention, you’ll need creative marketing campaigns to attract visitors to your booth and connect with your audience. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.

Pre-show marketing drums up attention and interest in your attendance. This may include email blasts, raffles, social media updates, direct mail, print advertisements, and other forms of promotion.

Here are some other ideas:

  • Virtual events: Virtual events not only create interest before the show, but they can also boost your show engagement. You can use virtual conferences, webinars, and live Q&A sessions to showcase your business’s value. You can also offer a free download, such as an e-book or white paper, which will encourage attendees to stop by your booth.
  • Interactive content: Interactive content such as online polls and assessments engage your audience and builds anticipation for the show. You could also include a call to action that encourages the audience to schedule a meeting at the show.
  • Employee social media engagement: Have your employees post to your business’s social media accounts with behind-the-scenes planning photos or videos, anticipated product launches, and other engaging content to generate enthusiasm for your trade show attendants. This not only humanizes your brand, it creates engagement with your followers and encourages them to visit your booth during the show.
