Why HTML5 for an exhibition game?

HTML5 gives you the option of using your game across different devices at exhibitions/events. For instance you might want to use a PC with a large touch screen at one event, but scale it down to mounted iPads at another. It also gives you the added option of having a public web based version of your game, to help with your other marketing activities, with minimal changes.
