“Often you helped create interested potential clients…Now that’s magic!”
—AquaMax of Maine


The cost of exhibiting?
The immediate cost is the entrance fee for each show you exhibit at, but there is so much more…the cost of your booth display, equipment or items,  electricity, set up fees, staffing your Booth (you may not have taken that one into consideration) while these costs must be paid, none of this guarantees results, traffic, or buzz.   Protect your investment by hiring Phil Smith as your trade show magician!


Magic vs other booth attractions  
Booth Babes, Push Girls and Putting-Greens all work to get people to a booth; but do they remember what you are trying to sell or provide?  Almost always NO!
Positive results come from planning your trade-show booth ideas to incorporate an attraction that draws clients, and tracking where your results come from.
A magician can attract and hold the attention of prospects so that your sales team can determine if they should strike up a conversation, scan their badge, or if it’s a contact they really want to impress invite them to dinner or to your hospitality suite.



“Going out to other booths with my company as the theme was ingenious!”
—BNI of Northern New England


Magic can also excite your audience on key selling points and introduce new products with flair because it’s all part of the show! Think about it – an elevator speech or trying to stuff promotional products into bags as people run by your booth? That sounds pretty ineffective, right?  Magic DRAWS potential clients to your booth and holds their interest.  No more chasing!  And, the integration of entertainment and information about your products will stay in people’s minds for a long time.  You don’t think so? Finish this, “My bologna has a first name it’s…”  You got the rest, didn’t you?  Why is that? Because it is fun and memorable, just like your trade show booth when you hire Phil Smith!
Relax your visitors so they open their minds to the potential s your products and or services can offer   them.


“You continually created a ‘stir’ around our booth…I was ready to offer you a sales position”
—Dale Carnegie of Maine
