Exhibitions and Trade Shows: The challenges

Exhibiting at a Trade Show is a huge commitment in terms of budget, manpower and time. Worst of all, there’s no guarantee of a return on your investment at the end of the event. You’ll want to ensure footfall to your stand so that your team are talking to prospects, instead of sitting around scrolling through Facebook on their smartphones.

You’ve tried the usual tactics like promotional pens, sweets and free coffee, but they just don’t work. The problem is, everybody’s doing the same thing, and gimmicks like that don’t engage with customers or encourage them to stay and talk to you.

We spoke to 4 times more people this year than last….this was mostly down to Darren and what he did for us.” – Ian Ward, Managing Director, TSE Power Ltd


How I Can help

Trade Show Magician
I’ll help you build a crowd around your stand, while promoting your products in a unique and memorable way. Magic is a great way to grab the attention of passers-by, without resorting to pushy sales techniques. The magic I perform will deliver your key messages, with opportunities for unique giveaways so that prospects remember you after the show.

If your main objective is lead generation, I’ll introduce the hottest prospects straight to your sales team. You’ll get additional social media coverage at the event, encouraging potential customers to seek out your company’s stand ahead of your competition.

We were so pleased with Darren and the buzz he generated on our stand that we booked him for the following year!” – Gary Lewis, Director, Intarack Solutions Ltd


Trade Show Magic: What to Expect

All of my magic will be tailored to deliver your brand message and objectives. Here’s how we’ll typically work together:

  • Initial calls and a meeting to discuss your objectives for the Trade Show
  • I’ll design magic performances to reinforce your marketing message and deliver on your goals for the show
  • At the exhibition, I’ll engage with passers-by and create a crowd around your stand with incredible magic
  • You’ll get increased visibility across the event’s social media channels
  • with my help.
  • A focus on lead generation – you’ll get the new business you need to make the event a success
