AEI 2023 Attendee Profile

According to the AEI 2023 Prospectus, over 3,500 industry professionals attended the 2022 show, and show organizers expect to surpass that number for the 2023 show. Due to AEI providing a one-stop-shop for several industry segments and associations, these attendees represent a wide range of out-of-home entertainment focusses:

  • Coin-op
  • FEC
  • Bulk vending
  • Laser tag
  • Virtual reality
  • Professional service providers
  • Billiard business
  • And more… 

Past AEI exhibitors know that they’ll leave the show with more leads than they’ll know what to do with. That’s because more than 70 percent of attendees have purchasing power. In fact, 40 percent will buy equipment on the spot at the show with 37 percent making a purchase within a month after the show from companies they met on the trade show floor. 

With these types of results, it’s no wonder so many industry-specific associations come out to play. 

To ensure that you leave the show with purchase orders and leads, you’ll need a booth that resonates with your visitors. Find out how to make such a booth in our guide below.

AEI 2023 Exhibit Guide

With over 200 other companies vying for attention, standing out from this impressive crowd might seem impossible but trust us: we know a few things about building the best exhibit booth! Here are a few things you can do to make sure your booth draws a crowd:

  • Pick the focal point, and product/service.
      1. Which of your products best fit attendees needs?
      2. Do you have any new products, services or technologies that offer solutions to the attendee? 
      3. How can you let attendees experience these new things?
      4. Design a marketing/content campaign around what’s relevant and what’s new. 
    1. Choose the right booth size for your message.
      1. 10’ x 10’: ideal for a single product or service, or a small line of products. You have room for multiple display cases, 3D graphic wall, custom light display and flooring, and one seating configuration.
      2. 10 x 20: good solution for those showing a variety of products in the booth. It has 20 feet of graphic back wall, multiple seating configurations for demonstrations and education, in addition to custom light and flooring that come standard with our exhibit rentals.
      3. 20 x 20: Exhibit Experience usually recommends 20’ x 20’ booths, as these offer demonstration space, enclosures for private viewing, and dozens of other configuration options. However, we understand that many companies have limited budgets this year.
  • Book your booth in the right place.
    1. AEI 2023 has six featured exhibit areas:
      1. Amusements, Music, Games & ATMs
      2. Billiard & Home Leisure
      3. Virtual Reality
      4. Bulk Vending
      5. Laser Tag
      6. Professional Service Providers & Suppliers
    2. Setting up shop in the right area means meeting attendees who are genuinely interested in what your company has to offer.
  1. Decide if you will rent or DIY your booth.
    1. Experience is key when it comes to standing out at large-scale tradeshows. 
    2. Local tradeshow exhibit rentals for the upcoming AEI 2023 show will help you go that extra mile. 
  2. Design a memorable in-booth experience
    1. No matter the size, your booth should tell a seamless brand story. 
    2. Pro Tip: include an interactive experience for your booth visitors.
  3. Build and train the right team. 
    1. Having the right booth staff is just as important as having the right design. 
    2. Include a mix of people from sales, technical, customer service and management.
  4. Ditch the hard sell. 
    1. Instead of trying to get sales, focus instead on how your products or services solve a problem.
  5. Create an itinerary with the networking and social events, educational sessions, and other activities you want to attend. This way you and your team will know when you’ll be at the booth. 
  6. Follow up. Use the travel time home to send follow-up emails to thank visitors for their time and remind them about your company.
