GET CREATIVE AND HAVE SOME FUN!!
We want your experience at FitFest to be a successful one. Because of this, we encourage you to get creative with the design of your booth. Interact with attendees and athletes and get creative with your design as well as the ways in which you attract potential customers. You have the potential to make contact with thousands of attendees, so be sure to make your product stand out and be remembered!
Some examples of this include giveaways, drawings (you can use this as an opportunity to collect email addresses), or contests held at your booth. Consumers love giveaways and samples; and fun contests/friendly competitions can help to draw a crowd to your booth. Engage the crowd in different ways. FitFest gives you limitless opportunities to spark future sales and growth for your company. Do what you can to interact with attendees and create buzz at your booth!
If you have any questions regarding the booth set up, please contact Karen Spears or Chris Zamudio.
