Hostesses are the most common type of trade show models. Their job is to draw attendees to your booth and direct them to the appropriate area or personnel. They also distribute marketing materials or gather customer information for future promotions.
Product Specialists create brand awareness and demonstrate your products and services. Their main responsibility is to attract potential customers to your booth and present your product or service in a one-on-one setting.
We also represent specialty talent such as DJs, magicians, showgirls, dancers, impersonators, photographers, videographers, costumed characters, and more. If you need something custom, let us know - there’s a good chance we can make it happen.
Not happy with the talent provided? Let us know and we’ll send a replacement model right away.
The talent that shows up at your booth is the person you selected from our roster. No surprises.
The price we quote you includes everything - parking, per diem, etc. No hidden fees.
If our staff is late - even if just 5 minutes - you will be reimbursed for the entire hour.
A trade show model is a person who is hired part-time to work trade shows, conventions and special events. They work for trade show and convention exhibitors who are looking to increase their lead generation and sales at these events.
Trade show models are also often referred to as brand ambassadors, booth models, promotional models, product specialists, greeters, convention models, and hostesses.
Models are hired to draw attendees to exhibitors’ booths while performing duties such as greeting attendees, registering visitors, explaining products, scanning badges, pre-qualifying leads and gathering crowds for presentations. These women and men are engaging, assertive, outgoing and possess the qualities needed to bring more quality traffic to your exhibit. Make your event a success by hiring our event staffing agency!
The benefits of hiring trade show models include having someone experienced doing the crowd gathering for you, maximizing lead generation, being able to focus on sales while someone else generates the leads and cost savings by hiring local temporary staff as opposed to flying someone in from your headquarters.
There is a high cost for exhibitors to attend trade shows. In addition to the booth space cost, booth design and marketing materials, there’s the cost of travel, hotel and meals for any staff you bring with you. Plus, these employees may not be familiar or comfortable engaging trade show attendees. Why not hire one (or more) of our local outgoing and friendly convention models and have someone generating leads for you at a fraction of the cost? Work with our event staffing agency to make your convention a success.
The cost of hiring trade show models varies greatly from city-to-city, the size of the trade show, as well as the level of experience and qualifications of each model. Yet, historically, trade show modeling rates fall mostly between $35/hour to $55/hour for our most in-demand staff.
In addition to trade show modeling, we also offer specialty talent such as costumed characters, mascots, magicians, DJs and more at an affordable price. Call our office to learn more about our services for conventions.
