I’ll be hosting a promo table (10’x10′ space) outdoors at a festival. I’m planning to have promo materials and exercise demos performed. Anyone have any type of “outside the box,” eye-catching ideas/demos that they used that has been successful. I will be promoting a “Ask the Expert” session but was looking for something else to gain peoples interest. Any thoughts or ideas are welcomed, and much appreciated.
I was at a festival 2 years ago and the USMC had a table. They had a chalkboard with 3 timed events (push-ups, sit-ups and full squats, I think). Next to each was a name and a number. It was an on-going competition. At the end of the day, the people with their name still up there (most number completed in set time-frame), received an award.
They always had a crowd. And there were other marines around talking about the Marine Corps and recruiting. I thought it was a great was to garner interest, get names, numbers and contact info for follow up and easy to perform, so not a lot of equipment or personnel was required.
