With more than 200 exhibitors on the ACT Expo show floor, your mission is to stand out from the crowd! Here are a few ideas to help set your company apart:

BUILDING YOUR BRAND BUZZ

Launching a new product this year? Unveil it at ACT Expo!
The expo hall floor provides the perfect venue for customers to see your product firsthand and ask questions. Add excitement by organizing an official “unveiling” at the event, drawing a crowd to your booth by announcing the date and time to customers in advance and onsite. Consider tying the debut to a related giveaway or contest to add double the exposure and buzz!
Don’t just tell customers why your product is great… show them!
Display your product in your booth and invite customers to see your technology up close. We encourage you to have technical team members at the show to answer detailed questions and explain the unique features that set your product apart from the competition. Consider scheduling specific demo times and inviting attendees to stop by—you can share the times on posters or handouts.
Share your news with thousands at ACT Expo!
Is your company entering into a new business partnership? Launching a new research and development initiative? An advanced technology vehicle deployment or infrastructure project? ACT Expo is a great avenue to share your news. Key stakeholders from throughout the supply chain will be in attendance, along with media outlets, government agencies, technology peers, and others. If a company executive is speaking on a panel, consider announcing this news as part of his/her presentation. Alternatively, you could schedule a press conference in your booth and invite reporters and customers to attend.
