If you’re looking for a truly unique and brilliant way to attract visitors to your stand, you might want to think about a trade show magician. But not just any magician. Any magician can do tricks. In fact, any idiot can learn a few tricks in a matter of minutes. What you need is someone professional who can engage, entertain and lead your delegates to sign up/scan their passes/leave their business cards.
Alan Hudson has been performing as a trade show magician at places like the NEC in Birmingham for over 20 years. Sometimes it’s performing close up magic for small groups (during the busy periods) or larger shows at set times through the day to really make a huge impact.
We’ve all seen dozens of stands at trade shows that look great, yet no one goes near them. Why? Because a good looking stand isn’t enough. You need to give people a reason to come over. A raffle is a bit naff. A snake in a box is interesting, but some people don’t like snakes. Your free pens are fine, but everyone has enough pens. No one uses a mouse mat anymore. Everyone loves a bit of magic! Magic when presented by a professional trade show magician can draw in the delegates, entertain them and leave them with a story they can’t wait to tell others.
Your sales staff are great if they have someone to sell to. But if no one is stopping, it can be tricky for even your number 1 star seller. Alan can engage delegates with sleight of hand magic, make them laugh, make them amazed, but most of MAKE THEM STOP AT YOUR STAND!
How much does a trade show magician cost?
Obviously cost will be a deciding factor as to wether or not you can afford to hire a magician to bring customers to your stand. However, the results will make any initial investment pay dividends. Cost will depend on time, location and many other factors. For instance, you might want tie in your company logo and message in to the tricks. Alan can spend time coming up with bespoke tricks and presentations that will blend in with your brand or message.
