How do you know if your trade show appearance was successful? Outside of the obvious - someone calling up your business and saying, "Hey, I stopped by your booth and was so impressed that I'm about to start reading off my credit card number!" - it can be difficult to judge how effective your display was. Surely, it raised awareness and served to strengthen your brand. But, how does that translate to leads and to closed deals?
Prove trade show ROI with an immersive virtual reality experience.
If you and your team are spending the time, money, travel and work to attend a trade show, you want it to pay off. You’re in the ideal space to attract new leads and get your name out there. The problem is, you’re directly competing with hundreds of other businesses. How can you stand out?
A virtual reality experience is an interesting, engaging tool to get people to stop by your booth - and stick around to learn more. VR can show off your product beautifully and give the user a memorable experience. If you’ve decided you want to set up a virtual reality demo at your next trade show, here are some steps you can take to get ready:
It's one thing to have an idea for a unique tech-forward trade show display that will grab attention. It's another thing to see that idea realized in time. Trade shows sneak up quickly and putting together an effective display is a matter of overcoming a set of ever-present challenges. These include limited budget, limited time, and limited help. Unless each impediment can be successfully cleared, the display won't meet its potential. If you have an idea to leverage new technology for your next trade show - say, virtual reality, for example - it can be discouraging to peek at the calendar and see the days before showtime dwindle.
How can you build the experience you need on a limited timeline?
Innovation is important. Everyone knows this and it's no wonder that it's creating buzz in the enterprise. If an idea isn’t innovative, it could get overlooked and unnoticed. An idea must be achievable, producible, creative, and cost-friendly. It is even better if this idea meets the specific needs of customers or makes a product more reliable or effective. Virtual Reality is a very important and popular example of technology being used for innovation right now and you hear news about it all the time. Another innovative idea everyone is talking about right now—self-driving cars. Once all the bugs get worked out of this technology, it could signal a huge change for the world.
