Are the employees staffing your booth delivering enough ROI? Many don’t appreciate the stakes, put in the effort, or generate the results you need.
Their behavior makes a big impact on your goals. Research shows the number one influence on attendee conversion is how your booth staff treats them. Your people matter more than your booth, products, reputation, or anything else.
Make your booth staff your key differentiator with Spark’s trade show training program:
“BOOTH BRUSH-UP: How to stand out and sell more on your trade show floor”
This powerful exhibitor training program helps your team attract, engage, qualify, educate and reward attendees efficiently, effectively and enjoyably. They’ll burnish familiar skills and learn new best practices. You’ll maximize their ROI, and earn more qualified leads.
VIRTUAL BOOTH TRAINING
Virtual training is designed for exhibitors with limited time, modest budgets, and for those whose trainees are too spread out geographically for an in-person training.
It’s scheduled at your convenience, runs 75-90 minutes over Zoom, and uses green-screen technology to keep trainees engaged and learning.
As with all Spark trainings, you choose the date, time, length, topics and style with our guidance, to ensure the biggest ROI.

NOTE: You can book virtual and in-person training together. For example, run a virtual training for all employees everywhere, then run smaller in-person trainings for employees at each show, focused on that show’s strategies and logistics.
IN-PERSON BOOTH TRAINING
This training packs a bigger punch. More time, richer content, lively discussion, challenging role-playing, and exciting games create an immersive, high-energy experience. Trainees will grasp, practice and master key engagement skills.
✓ Run it anywhere: office, company retreat, booth, convention center, etc.
✓ Build it into a larger event like a sales kickoff (SKO), or run it alone
✓ Each trainee gets a customized, printed workbook to complete and keep
✓ Each trainee gets a pocket-sized “cheat sheet” to use at your booth
