“Branding is an important aspect of any business and helps to create a name and an image of the business in consumers’ mind. Marketing managers find that branding plays a significant role to attract and retain attendees,” – MarketingDonut.com

Brands and businesses often organize trade shows and marketing events in an attempt to raise a brand’s profile and to create deeper connections with customers and business prospects. One of the main objectives of such a show is to attract a larger number of visitors to various business venues. The number of footfalls is important because it indicates customer interest in a brand and its products. Footfalls also indicate the mood of the market, the potential for future growth, and the overall success of a marketing event. In light of the above, we note that commercial operators and organizers must work to attract potential customers and members of the general public to their trade booths and trade stalls. In the following paragraphs, we shall examine some of the techniques to accomplish the objective of attracting a larger number of visitors to the said sites.

Business managers and marketing professionals may choose to take the lead in terms of attracting visitors to marketing events. This can be accomplished by inviting existing customers to said events. Emails, blogs, online banner advertisements, electronic newsletters, social media posts, and text messages can help to attract customer attention to a planned marketing event. Therefore, raising customer awareness remains key to attracting a larger number of visitors. Businesses can elect to boost visitor interest by offering hot beverages, finger foods, and healthy snacks at these business destinations. These devices can boost the numbers of visitors while ensuring that significant volumes of business are transacted during or immediately after said business event.

An on-going dialogue with customers via social media can prove to be a powerful tool in igniting and sustaining customer interest in marketing events. We note that social media powers the immediacy of information and therefore should be a major plank to promote event publicity. This strategy is premised on the fact that a majority of business customers are active participants in multiple social media platforms; therefore, such media can help to drive a larger number of visitors to various stalls and booths at modern marketing events. In addition, social media handles can be actively used to update followers in the course of the said event. This creates an impression that the organizers have high interest levels in the success of the event. In light of the above, we note that social media represents an indispensable tool to drive visitor attendance.

Brands and businesses should ensure that existing customers have a significant presence in a marketing event. Event managers can earmark special merchandise and discounted products for the existing customers of a brand or business. This approach can help to attract a larger number of visitors to said events. In addition, these customers may be requested to bring their business associates to these events, thereby boosting attendance at trade and marketing events. Meaningful mementos can be given to these attendees in a bid to solicit their co-operation and to drive positive business outcomes. Further, businesses may allow existing customers to speak to the congregation and elaborate on their experience on transacting with a certain business enterprise. This tactic helps to boost customer engagement and focus attention on a business enterprise.

Physical comfort is important to human beings and therefore, businesses that participate in marketing events can create special spaces for attendees to help the latter relax. This is a significant tactic that helps to drive a larger number of visitors to commercial events. We note that marketing events tend to be chaotic and a chance to relax can spur more productive business relationships. Event organizers must work to create these spaces in advance because haphazard and last minute creations can disrupt the visitor’s experience. These spaces can provide visitors with creature comforts such as hot beverages and energy drinks. The human mind reacts well to such comforts and therefore, business visitors would find themselves amenable to discuss business deals.

The visual element remains important in a marketing event. We note that visitors and business representatives are attracted to tastefully appointed stalls and booths. The creative element is underlined by installing bold graphics, fine product displays, and competent sales personnel at various stalls and booths. These accoutrements can help a business to create a focussed marketing pitch and thus attract a larger number of visitors to the premises. Further, participating brands and businesses can choose to give away the latest product and service brochures in a bid to spur business engagements and future transactions. In light of the above, we may state that event participants must plan these activities in minute detail so as to case a favourable impression on visitors of all hues.

Electronic display technologies such as digital billboards attract visitor attentions at marketing events. These displays can configure multiple messages and brand logos, thereby attracting a larger number of visitors. Brands and businesses can choose to equip these billboards with looped messages thereby attracting interests from all attendees. The billboards can help to promote a commercial product and enable brands to broadcast business propositions. A series of digital screens can be organized when brands want to convey a sequence of marketing messages. This multiplicity also helps to boost public awareness and drive a larger number of visitors. In addition to the above, electronic displays can be programmed to feature brand advertisements in a bid to capture customers’ attention.

Brands and businesses can choose to organize VIP events for the benefit of visitors and attendees. Special passes can be handed out in advance to select guests and business visitors. These events can hinge on management personnel of a particular brand meeting with special guests in person. Business managers may allot a special time for these events in a bid to preserve exclusivity and to attract a larger number of visitors. We note that this tactic affords businesses an opportunity to meet with high profile business visitors. Interesting conversations may ensue and these can be carried forward in the form of future work collaborations and profitable business contracts.

In the preceding paragraphs, we have examined some of the techniques that enable businesses to drive footfalls at marketing events. Every brand or business must invest sufficient time and resources to create a decent first impression on visitors and business customers at said events. That said, we note that the higher number of visitors are important because they enhance the chances of business success at these venues. However, participating businesses must make it a point to train their staff persons in the nuances of business interaction. This remains an important aspect of creating a favourable first impression on visitors. Once this is achieved, brands and businesses can engage with customers and potential clients at a deeper level in a bid to facilitate business transactions. Advance publicity on a variety of media also remains one of the linchpins of event success. Free gifts and creature comforts must be arranged generously so as to attract a constant stream of business visitors. In light of these facts, brands and businesses must gear their efforts in order to achieve the maximum outcomes at marketing events.
