Digital signage for events is increasingly taking over from traditional static posters and noticeboards. Digital screens enable businesses to showcase their products and information in a dynamic way that stands out from the crowd. The flexibility of digital signage is one of the key benefits for events. Here is how to use digital signage to boost an event.

 

Social Media Live Feed

Digital signage allows organisers to stream live social media feeds at events. Live feeds can be used to increase event awareness online and keep attendees up to date with areas of the event they would otherwise miss. Organisers can also motivate exhibitors and delegates to tweet via the event hashtag. Exhibitors can use this to tell delegates about their stand and encourage delegates to engage, which will allow them to feel personally involved. There are also various companies, such as Big Screen Social, who run social media streaming services so that exhibitors don’t have to worry about the running of the stream.

 

Wayfinding

Traditional paper posters will let delegates find their way around. However, they do not enable people to view more information about certain sessions. Digital signage allows delegates to view information about sessions, interactive maps and live updates of the schedule. Delegates could even scan QR codes on the screen to access information or download an event app.

 

Branding

Digital signage screens are a great way to create high-impact branding and advertising. Visibility is key for businesses at events in order for them to get the best return on their investment. High-impacting advertising is a dynamic way to do this and attract attention. Digital signage can vary from small screens to large 4K LED video walls. All of these are great ways to stand out from the crowd and get brands known. Therefore, organisers can offer space on the digital signage at the event as part of the exhibitor package or even as an extra service.

 

Live Streaming

Videos always gain lots of engagement and interest. Digital signage for events allows organisers to live stream videos, such as exhibitor interviews, onto a large screen. This gives delegates access to interesting news, offers, and information about the exhibitors. Exhibitors will also be keen to be on the screen to use it as promotion for their stand.

 

Increase Time Spent at Your Stand

Digital signage for events is a dynamic way to not only attract delegates to your stand but also increase engagement. Exhibitors could run a competition with a game on the digital signage screen or show their live Twitter feed and encourage delegates to Tweet them.

 

Flexibility

Digital signage is very flexible. Have you ever had a new roller banner printed, only to find a spelling mistake when you take it to an event? Or spent money on a poster to find that the offer is no longer valid? Digital signage enables quick and instant changes at minimal cost. Flexibility is also an advantage so exhibitors can change their selling tactics half way through the event if one offer isn’t working. Digital signage for events allows you to change everything when you would like.
