The name of the city of Tampa, Florida is believed to be a Calusa tribal moniker meaning “sticks of fire.” Most likely, the natives were referring to the regular occurrences of lightning in the region. Over the years, Tampa has gained more claims to fame, earning it a spot among the most in-demand locations for national conferences, trade exhibitions and business meetings. Those showing off their products and services understand the city’s unique advantages to their own marketing and sales efforts.
It may surprise some to know that 21st-century telecommunications has by no means replaced the always effective tool of personal presence. Live Talent answers this need with models who are both keen observers and experienced participants in the marketing and vending arts. Far from passive subjects who pose for photo shoots, our personnel actively engage customers and clients as well-versed professionals who complement the work of your on-site employees. Plus, these individuals call Tampa home, adding to their value as hosts, brand agents and performers.
Conventions and gatherings that meet every year, or two or four, are special occasions that can showcase the salable strengths of any given company. When conveyed properly, those assets are converted into paying customers and patrons. The carefully chosen associates who staff the assigned exhibit areas are normally able and competent but they do not always embody the personal charisma and warmth that draw large numbers of conference attendees to their booths.
Live Talent specializes in these sometimes elusive qualities. Our promo models emit verve, spirit and passion on behalf of the organizations they represent. Both proficient and efficient, they are trained to act on behalf of your sales force; highlight pertinent published resources for booth visitors; qualify eligible customers and scan guest name tags. In so doing, they free up staff to consult with serious investigators and potential customers.
Checking out Live Talent in no way binds you contractually. The easy and painless “Quote Request Form” prominent on our website works to introduce the curious to our models and estimate pricing based on the scope of your needs. In little over a few minutes, our prospective client has all the information necessary to make an informed decision. We respond to additional questions at any time you ask, regardless of the time of day or day of the week.
There are good reasons that Tampa has enjoyed a substantial increase in tourism of late, even in the wake of Hurricane Irma in 2017. Home to Major League Baseball’s Rays and the National Football League’s Buccaneers, this region is also a recreational haven, offering fishing, boating, golf and theme parks like Busch Gardens and the Florida Aquarium.
When not occupied by these pursuits, convention goers can do business at the 200,000 square foot Tampa Convention Center. This facility can comfortably welcome up to 1,000 exhibit booths. Adjacent to a variety of hotels, the Tampa Convention Center also holds ballrooms and banquet halls, with more space being acquired along the Riverwalk.
The sheer magnitude of Tampa’s offerings makes homegrown talent all the more valuable to exhibitors. A booth can be more than just a business stop, but can also serve as an informational resource for prospects and customers. Importantly, a team with this expertise and the personal element can bring a business closer to closing deals.
