Spark professional trade show booth presenter Andy Saks recently completed a five-city swing of trade show bookings, delivering seven different product presentations for four corporate clients at five different shows in the United States and Europe:
RSA Conference (IT security) in San Francisco, for Fidelis Cybersecurity
HIMSS Conference (healthcare) in Orlando, for Citrix
Mobile World Congress (mobile technology) in Barcelona, Spain, for Citrix
ConExpo (construction) in Las Vegas, for Volvo Construction Equipment
IE3 Show (HVAC) in Nashville, for ContractorSelling.com
For each show, Saks either wrote or heavily edited his own booth presentation script, and tweaked accompanying visuals to match.
At ConExpo, Saks delivered three product presentations in rotation for Volvo throughout the five-day show, alongside Spark co-presenter Steve Multer, who Saks recruited from SKM Creative. Saks and Multer also served as co-emcees to help Volvo unveil its Golden Hauler and L350H loader for the global press assembled at the booth when the show opened.
At the RSA and ConExpo shows, Saks also delivered Spark’s booth staff lead attraction training program on site for his client.
Spark was booked for Citrix through trade show talent company Magnet Productions.
