Games for Exhibition Stands, Trade Show Booths and Events
Looking for creative, interactive ideas to help you attract visitors at exhibitions or events?
Many companies want to engage visitors with a big screen and/or multimedia content at an exhibition or trade show. But without a great piece of engaging content, it’s a wasted opportunity.
Branded exhibition games are the ultimate in premium, engaging, interactive exhibition stand attractions, that you can use again and again.
Can our game be built around our brand, products or services?
Absolutely. We believe each game should be built from the ground up, to communicate specific brand messages and product/service features and benefits. This is exactly what we do.
Creating a custom game for your exhibition stand also means it can be specifically tailored to appeal to your target audience.
Despite what you might think custom games don’t have to cost a fortune. We can accommodate a wide range of budgets.
Can our game be customised for a particular event?
We can make modifications to your game on an event by event basis. This is useful if you’re promoting slightly different sets of products or services at different trade shows.
We always encourage repeat uses of a game. After the initial production, you can use your game again and again, at multiple exhibitions and events.
What hardware will we need to run our game?
We design games with standard PC hardware and/or mobile devices & tablets in mind and can support a wide variety of input devices and screen sizes, depending on your requirements.
Whether it’s for a small interactive touch screen kiosk, or a fully featured retro arcade game to run on a giant screen, we’ve got it all covered.
They can also support a range of input devices, from touch screens to gamepads and joysticks.
Interactive touch screen kiosks
It’s no longer necessary to use custom setups, with expensive touch screen displays attached to PC hardware, to build an interactive kiosk.
Tablets have a touch screen and the hardware that you need to run your game at an exhibition built in. Most tablets also have a “kiosk mode”, which allows you to lock the screen to your game. So you don’t have to worry about players messing with the device, outside of the game.
All you need to do is mount it on your stand. Plus, there’s also nothing stopping you using multiple tablets to allow more than one attendee to play at once.
Although they don’t have quite the drawing power of a giant screen, tablets are a great, easily accessible choice if you’re working to a tight budget.
Big screen games
If you have a more substantial budget for your exhibition stand and really want to stand out, you can run your game on a giant screen.
All you need is a standard PC or Mac and the screen built into your stand. You also have the option of designing your game to use a touch screen display and/or standard gamepad/joystick controls for a more arcade-like game experience.
Are games only suitable for big, professionally built stands?
Not at all. The games we make are designed to run on standard hardware. So there’s no real barrier to where or when you can use your game. Using just a standard tablet or PC with a screen attached, you can easily set up your game on a small self-built stall or trade show booth.
You’re also not restricted to trade shows. You can easily use your game at any live promotional event. You don’t even have to provide the hardware to play. If your game is web based, you can advertise the web address at the event and encourage attendees to play on their own mobile devices.
Can we capture data?
We can include forms to capture players’ details and/or email addresses at a trade show. You can use this to build your mailing list or collect company contact details to follow up at a later date.
Can we run a competition?
We don’t recommend running competitions based on high scores, for reasons you can read about here. But you can include a free prize draw as an incentive to complete your data capture form, if you wish.
Is a game easy to set up at the exhibition?
We always provide detailed instructions and help. So it’s easy for you or your events company to set the finished game up on your stand. We always recommend doing this in advance of the event and we’re happy to give advice and help.
Can you set it up for us?
For the ultimate peace of mind we can offer an on-site installation/support service. We’ll be on hand at the venue to help with getting the game up and running on your exhibition stand. You’ll also have someone there to quickly sort out any issues, should they arise.
Can you work with the events company that’s building our stand?
Sure. If you’re getting your stand built and/or run by an event company, you can either contact us directly, or get them to contact us.
If you are an events company or digital agency looking for a partner to build games to include in an exhibition stand you’re designing, then we’ll also be able to help.
