Chicago Trade Show Models



Every year, the city of Chicago hosts hundreds of trade shows and conventions. For the many exhibitors at these events, sales, lead generation and the overall branding of these companies are of the utmost importance. We know just how important the success of your exhibit at these trade shows is to you!

At Live Talent, we specialize in providing models for these events. In fact, we don’t provide traditional models, we only provide sales-savvy models who specialize in working conventions, tradeshows, and similar events. All of our staff is local to Chicago and has experience working as brand ambassadors and promotional models for corporations – large and small – at these trade shows.

Trade shows and conventions have a lot to offer. They are the one place where everyone in your industry converges and you have the largest number of prospects and leads in one location, at the same time, and looking to do business.

Sadly, most of the employees manning the booths at these events have no experience engaging the plethora of leads walking by their booth. This is just not their forte. This is where we come in and why our trade show models Chicago are so valuable.

Chicago trade show models can perform many roles: staff the booth while you are in meetings, engage and qualify prospective customers, scan attendees’ badges, present product and service information, and work seamlessly with your sales staff to maximize sales and lead generation.
