Best-of-Show Contests & Mystery Shopping

“Best-of-Show” Contest Judging and Awards

  • Do you want to motivate your exhibitors and help them to improve their exhibit presence at your show?  Consider implementing a “Best-of-Show” competition with a professional judging team, complete with pre-show promotion of your award criteria and award levels (i.e. a free 10′ x 10′ booth space at the following year’s show for first prize in the linear category, or a 20′ x 20′ booth space for first prize in the island category), plus trophies/plaques, at-show announcements, recognition through show floor announcements, trophy presentation during a meal function, promotion on your show website and bragging rights.
  • After the judging is completed and awards have been announced, your judges can return to those exhibitors’ booths who’ve requested a personalized exhibit review of what they can improve for future shows. (Or this exhibit review can also be customized to first-time exhibitors, with on-the-fly tips that can be implemented on show site during set-up.)
  • All Best-of-Show programs can be customized to your show’s goals and objectives and exhibitor sizes and types.
