Exhibitions are on their way - our tips on getting that competitive edge


Something exciting is on the horizon.

As lockdown restrictions are slowly easing worldwide, in person exhibitions are set to make a return soon and personally, we can’t wait. 

But it’s been a while since we’ve all attended one and in that time the world has changed. Digital media has been woven into our lives and customer habits have changed as a result. Old strategies are no longer going to appeal to potential clients and investors like they used to, something new is needed. 

We’ve been giving quite a lot of thought here at Animated Technologies into how best to showcase technical products at exhibitions, after all solving problems is what we do best. We’ve collected some top tips for exhibitions that we wanted to share with you, as well as bringing you industry news about AR and Interactive apps to help you keep your edge on your competitors at your next exhibition. 

Our top exhibition tips - Quick fire 

  1. Embrace new technology - The world has changed this past year so don't be afraid to change with it. Embrace exciting new technology like AR or VR to create a memorable experience for those looking at your products.
  2. Demonstrate how your product will solve customer problems - People want to know how your product will benefit them. Try not to get caught up on minor details on the day, you can always send a follow up email to them afterwards to explain more. 
  3. Stop people slipping through the net by using animation- The reality is that you may not be able to talk to every person who looks at your exhibition stand. With a small team there will be a point where no one is available to talk to interested customers because they are occupied talking to another interested party. A comprehensive animated video allows potential customers to see what your business offers without having to talk to your team. 
  4. Utilise your mailing list - Send an email out before the exhibition to let people know you’re there and where they can find you on the day. This is also a great opportunity to promote your products or services in advance. 
  5. Don’t forget about your existing customers - Getting new customers is great, but you can’t take for granted your current ones. Offer them something at the exhibition that will strengthen your relationship and keep them coming back.
