So, how do you make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at Expo 2020? The answer is – VIDEOS.
We have worked with hundreds of businesses involved with trade show events in increasing the benefits and ROI of their effort with video projects. We all know that for any large-scale meeting, implementing audio-visual elements plays a major role in displaying information. However, there are other equally important aspects of video production which are sometimes overlooked and omitted from planning. Hiring a video production company as your synergistic partner would add value and help you earn additional revenue for your company. Here are a few examples of how you can use videos to make the most of Expo 2020 Dubai:
- Brand Story Video
Incorporating videos in your booth is very easy. You can display your video using tablets, kiosks, touch screen monitors, video walls, projectors, etc. Using these display options you can explain what your business does so your sales rep doesn’t have to waste their time explaining it to every visitor that comes your way. Create a video that tells the story of your brand to catch the attention of potential buyers, media and investors.
- Presentation Videos
Seminars, talks, and presentations are a common form of content being presented at any expo or trade show. For such presentations a presenter spends months preparing and rehearsing the perfect presentation. But, sadly even after a month or even a week down the road, it’s very likely that only a handful of people would remember what was said. Partnering with a video production company allows the content to be documented and distributed via social media or company websites. You can also live stream these presentations online via Facebook, Instagram, and others, to large audiences who couldn’t attend.
- Sneak Peeks
Before any event, you can build excitement by sharing a sneak peek of any demonstrations you might be doing. Highlight your team in a way that’s fun and inviting. You can share such videos on your social platforms or on a specially designed landing page for the expo. Getting the conversation started before the show is a great way to illustrate why attendees should be excited to visit your booth and learn more about your product or services.
- Live Stream Video
Live streaming is one of the newest and one of the most loved styles of video today. Make use of it to live stream important sessions and behind-the-scenes style videos. You can also include live streaming of different events and interviews that the company is taking part in at the event. Events like the Dubai expo are going to have the perfect confluence of suppliers, clients, industry experts, and media all together at the same time and all primed to speak. Live streaming sessions with all these people can be hugely beneficial for your company.
- Promo Videos
If your event is going to launch a new product or simply expanding, create a video to promote it. Share the promo on your social platform, emails, or company landing page to drum up anticipation.
