Sometimes with promotional products yes, people just come to your exhibit for that. Sending a postcard along with a promotional item, or the promotional item as the invitation to the exhibit does often work.

Smile Give-aways

Giveaways could attract more people to your booth.There are thousands of other options out there. Be creative! Goodluck!

I actually specialize in promotional products, and I was in a meeting yesterday with a major player in the industry. He mentioned something that I hadn't thought of, but I'm sure it's been done.

Rather than waiting til the people are actually at the expo or at the tradeshow, reach out to them before hand. If you have a list of people who are going to be at the tradeshow or people you want to get there, send them something beforehand. It could be a coupon for a free t-shirt, or an entry to a raffle. You're building a relationship and peaking their interest. He suggested sending them a promotional jotter with the first page imprinted as a coupon for a free tote bag or t-shirt.

I thought it was definitely interesting.

Can you guy give me any tips or marketing idea to attract people to my booth?

This is one of my idea, maybe it can help you guy.
- Showing good music together with funny video clips on the projector. If you put in the good position where everyone can see it. Im pretty sure they will stop by and watch it.

Thank you!
Hope you guy can advise me a few ideas
It is better to use Name Badges in the conference.These name tags helps in avoiding communication gaps between the customers and the employees of the organization.The name tags are very useful for the public to know the details about the employees.

I always believe free food or small gadgets are the best way to attract people. If you opt for something, which is cheap yet attractive, you will be a winner .

Might be a little too late to offer tips but for the sake of those intending to do a similar thing,I would advise on getting the presentation right.How can you go about this?A recent tip I learned recently is use of digital signage and interactive displays.When done well,it definitely will keep those visitors streaming in to your booth.The rest is already mentioned,and @TradeShowGuru,very effective tip!
