While I don’t claim to be a techie, I do get excited by all the gadgets and tools out there for increasing engagement. This year’s EXHIBITOR Show had no shortage of cool tools for exhibitors and event producers. In this video, you’ll see three of the items featured:
- Wondermakr social vending machine
- See-through LCD touch-screen display from NMR Events
- Augmented reality booth from iQ3Dbooth
In addition, Blue Telescope offered the opportunity to experience virtual reality using Oculus Rift, and iQ3Dbooth let me try Google Glass for the first time. Will these tools become standard fare for exhibits of the future? It’s not likely. But for the right company and audience, there’s no doubt that they will boost engagement and memorability.
