Convention & Trade Show Entertainment

When promoting your brand or products you want guests to flock to your stand, so you need to stand out from the crowd and what better way to catch the attention of passing customers than with some high impact convention and trade show entertainment? 

Not only is it important to get people engaging with your products on your stand, but it’s also important that they are sharing your brand online and using your dedicated hashtags and social media handles.

So, here are a few of the most effective ways to use convention and trade show entertainment to promote engagement with potential customers. 

convention and trade show

Conventions are usually held in large venues and have huge crowds, so to make sure guests find you from a distance why not hire some costumed Stilt Walkers?

Towering above potential customers and wearing colourful costumes these performers are impossible to miss even from a distance! They’re a great way to get guests taking photos at your stand and sharing them on social media making them ideal entertainment for contributing to your online presence.

Our Stilt Walkers have hundreds of themed costumes ready to go or if you have a particular request they can tailor make something to suit your branding or company style. 

Magicians are a trade show dream. They can attract customers by showing them some cool close up magic, holding them at your stand and giving your sales team the opportunity to engage. 

They can circulate around the venue using your business cards in their magic tricks and give people directions to your stand allowing you to take care of the business side of things. Alternatively if you are selling a physical product (and you can provide them with a sample in advance) they may even be able to develop a unique trick featuring your product.

This makes magicians one of our top suggestions for convention and trade show entertainment. 

Unique and unusual entertainment always catches the eye of passers by… our Crazy Head Characters are perfect convention and trade show entertainment because they are certainly both of these things.

Head turning and highly visual these characters are full of energy and will attract guests to your stand encouraging them to take photos and share them online.

They can also circulate amongst the crowds sharing your giveaways, promo material and encouraging visitors to call at your stand. We have lots of different crazy heads to choose from including ‘Plant Pot Heads’ and ‘Disco Ball Heads’ – you could even have them wearing your branded uniform. 

Our Bunco Booths are a great fun and an ideal entertainment option for conventions and trade shows.

Similar to a close up magician a bunco booth performer can use your business card in their performance, handing them out along with your branded merchandise as small prizes.

Their sleight of hand and old fashioned style gambling tricks such as find the lady, peas and shells and many more classics will instantly draw a crowd to your stand. Guests will stay to play, attracting potential customers for your sales team to engage with. 

Of course this is by no means an exhaustive list as we offer hundreds of entertainment options which can be found on our Browse Artists page.
