  • Change the Conversation

    KNAPP at MODEX 1 of 5

    While robots and conveyors are common fare for exhibitors at MODEX, KNAPP opted to “get out of the product weeds.” Instead of demonstrating automation equipment, KNAPP engaged booth visitors with compelling business-use cases that focused on today’s big supply chain challenges.

  • Awaken Curiosity

    KNAPP at MODEX 2 of 5

    Automation components lit up in highly-choreographed, precisely-timed sequences that demonstrated intelligent, software-driven fulfillment in action.

  • Model Engagement

    KNAPP at MODEX 3 of 5

    The central engagement arena featured three brightly lit, 3D models of state-of-the-art fulfillment centers. Each model supported three types of engagement:

    ● 1:One – self-driven individual experiences
    ● 1:Few – rep-led experiences for small groups
    ● 1:Many – a formal presentation to communicate the brand story to large crowds


  • Elevated Storytelling

    KNAPP at MODEX 4 of 5

    The miniature fulfillment centers sat on top of media-clad table tops. An iPad controlled each interactive table experience. Compelling text narratives advanced the stories, supported by dynamic digital content on the table top, on the iPads and on the surrounding monitors.

  • Intelligence Made Manifest

    KNAPP at MODEX 5 of 5

    This bold departure from the status quo drew crowds and helped attendees understand how KNAPP Intelligence is driving change in their industry. Immediate post-show metrics revealed that:

    ● 94% of booth visitors were net-new contacts for the company
    ● 36% of those visitors represented qualified, post-show sales opportunities
    ● Executive management enthusiastically embraced the value of the no-equipment, immersive storytelling experience

  • Many Hands. One Goal.

    Actelion 1 of 4

    Clinicians at medical congresses attend hours of scientific sessions and read dozens of poster presentations. Actelion wanted to engage surgeons on the expo floor in a more personal way. We delivered a cause marketing activity that created a strong emotional connection with the audience.

  • Partners in Patient Care

    Actelion 2 of 4

    trade show booth draws

    Doctors used a custom touchscreen app to scan one of their hands and trigger a donation to support research in their chosen field of medicine. Signing the hand scan enlisted physicians in the cause and demonstrated their commitment to advancing innovation in patient care.

  • Community Building in Action

    Actelion 3 of 4

    One final tap sent the personalized hand scan to a digital Commitment to Caring Quilt on an enormous LED wall.

  • The Beginning of a Beautiful Relationship

    Actelion 4 of 4

    trade show interactive experience

    The evocative image of hundreds of caring hands dedicated to a common goal communicated the aspirational alignment between Actelion and its partners in health care. More than 1,850 doctors participated in the activity, creating organic opportunities for conversations with sales reps.

  • The Patient Journey

    A Major Pharma Company 1 of 5

    A major pharmaceutical company wanted to re-balance the focus of its trade show exhibit, placing less emphasis on product data and a greater emphasis on the patient. We turned to the real time interaction of Augmented Reality (AR) to create a memorable experience.

  • Taking the First Step

    A Major Pharma Company 2 of 5

    iPads provided visitors with a personal, portable tool to discover the stories of real life patients. Wayfinding graphics led health care professionals (HCPs) from one patient milestone to the next.

  • Connecting with Patients

    A Major Pharma Company 3 of 5

    Pointing the iPad at a marker on a life-size figure triggered a hidden story unique to that patient.

  • Deep Dive

    A Major Pharma Company 4 of 5

    After each story was revealed, on screen prompts allowed HCPs to explore evidence, outcomes, onboarding and more.

  • Personal Connections

    A Major Pharma Company 5 of 5

    The patient-centric nature of the engagement appealed to the HCPs’ mission-driven personalities and enabled organic interaction with the sales reps to strengthen relationships.

  • Dwell Time

    Sysmex 1 of 5

    With nine new products launching at AACC, Sysmex wanted to attract more attendees to their booth than ever before and to increase visitor dwell time, as well. We devised a Pull-Through strategy that delivered on both counts.

  • Track the Engagement

    Sysmex 2 of 5

    Professional Engagers greeted attendees, scanned badges and provided visitors with Sysmex branded RFID bracelets. Each bracelet linked to the participant’s badge scan profile.

  • Incentivize the Attendee

    Sysmex 3 of 5

    Every visit to a product station triggered a donation to the AACC Global Health Outreach. Donations were progressive, so each station visited increased the donation value.

  • Communicate the Message

    Sysmex 4 of 5

    A hosted, interactive game reinforced the product strategy behind the new solutions and created a competitive vibe in the booth.

  • Measure the Results

    Sysmex 5 of 5

    The pull-through strategy paid off with a record number of booth visitors, significantly longer dwell times at product stations, and detailed metrics about individual and collective attendee product interest.

  • Tell a Better Story

    Knapp RedPilot 1 of 5

    Telling a consistent story from rep to rep during a product launch is always a challenge. When Knapp introduced Red Pilot software at their biggest annual trade show, we created a custom app that helped the reps communicate with confidence and impact.

  • First Impressions are Everything

    Knapp RedPilot 2 of 5

    Transparent, OLED display monitors piqued audience interest. Hi end video animations created visual appeal and energized the narrative.

  • Familiarity Breeds Trust

    Knapp RedPilot 3 of 5

    Role-specific use cases generated emotional connections for listeners by establishing context and relevance. Talking points displayed right on the app, so critical messages were always delivered right time, right place.

  • Immediacy = Impact

    Knapp RedPilot 4 of 5

    A modular structure gave reps the option of telling the story in a linear fashion or jumping from chapter to chapter to address customer inquiries in the moment.

  • Rinse. Repeat.

    Knapp RedPilot 5 of 5

    The app was pushed out to the entire sales force after the show, so reps in the field could tell the same story and provide the same experience for their customers.

  • EventConnect

    DMG Mori 1 of 4

    When machine tool giant DMG Mori exhibits at IMTS they go big. More than 15,000 square feet of exhibit space. Dozens of large machines on display. Two double decks. 15 meeting rooms. A cafe to serve 300 people. 400 personnel to work the crush of 100,000 industrialists from all over the world. Imagine trying to quickly and reliably match a visitor up with one specific individual staffer inside a mini-metropolis like that. Now you have some idea of the customer service challenge that DMG Mori asked us to solve.

  • App Magic

    DMG Mori 2 of 4

    trade show booth draws

    We designed a cross-platform app that could be accessed by web browser, iPhone, iPad or Android devices. All 400 of the client’s staff and management team registered their profile on the app, which worked like a social media site. Profiles included staff picture, languages spoken and all contact info. The staff also input their schedule to a calendar for each day of the six-day show.

  • "Is Jay in?"

    DMG Mori 3 of 4

    trade show booth experience

    Visitors looking for a particular DMG Mori contact immediately benefited from the app. Staff members could do a quick look-up on their smart device and instantly determine if the contact was in the booth, walking the show, or off site. One more touch sent a text message or placed a phone call to the requested contact. Moments later, the two parties were meeting face to face.

  • "Meet me in Columbus B"

    DMG Mori 4 of 4

    trade show interactive experience

    Staffers also used the app to reserve meeting rooms for private conferences. A quick search provided room capacity and availability. Requests went to the booth manager who approved everything from her smart phone. In her words, “I can manage the whole show right here in my pocket.”

  • To Build a Community

    NextGen UGM 1 of 5

    When NextGen Healthcare Information Systems hosts its annual User Group Meeting, education and networking are the order of the day. We enjoy the yearly opportunity to inspire a sense of community among attendees and to strengthen the shared purpose between this client and 5,000 of its best customers.

  • Calibrated Production

    NextGen UGM 2 of 5

    meeting and conference staging and production

    We scale scenic elements and AV to fit the cavernous arenas needed to seat 5,000 people. During the General Session, the design supports the presentation requirements of executive and technical speakers. At night, additional lighting and audio sets the stage for musical acts and entertainments.

  • Working Together

    NextGen UGM 3 of 5

    meeting and conference audience engagement

    Seating 5,000 guests takes a few minutes. We engage the crowd with interactive technology that keeps them thinking, laughing – and participating!

  • Kickstart the Excitement

    NextGen UGM 4 of 5

    meeting and conference content development

    A new conference brand inspired an exuberant opening video that communicated the shared purpose of the meeting.

  • Compelling Communication

    NextGen UGM 5 of 5

    meeting and conference content development

    To keep messaging on point, we produced all the scripting and graphics from executive welcome to technical demos. Presentation coaching ensured that every speaker made a positive impact in front of this high stakes audience.

  • X-Factor

    Carestream 1 of 4

    Carestream, a provider of dental and medical imaging systems and IT solutions, planned to preview a new, work-in-progress piece of mobile X-ray equipment at its major industry event of the year. We were thrilled when they asked us to create a show-and-tell Spotlight Theatre Presentation. Unfortunately, the prototype was still in production and wouldn’t be ready until days before the show.

  • Virtual Magic

    Carestream 2 of 4

    trade show booth draws

    Using engineering files and CAD drawings, we first created a 3D model of the new device. From there, we applied surface finishes, details and lighting effects to create realistic images of the new work-in-progress equipment.

  • Perfect Match

    Carestream 3 of 4

    We then animated the model to illustrate the talking points communicated by our professional presenter and to demonstrate the mobile functionality of the new equipment.

  • A Second Life

    Carestream 4 of 4

    trade show interactive experience

    Our 3D animation perfectly replicated the machine that arrived on site and the Spotlight Theatre attracted record-setting audiences. After the show, the animation files continued to be used for additional slide presentations by product specialists and sales staff.

  • The Human Touch

    1 of 5

    At CES 2015, Lowe’s constructed an impressive, two-story home that featured its market-leading smart home technology, Iris. But the Lowe’s exhibit was surrounded by competitor booths boasting similar technology. In an effort to get noticed, Lowe’s turned to GetSynchronicity to review their marketing program and identify ways to maximize the impact of their technology.

  • It’s all about the people

    2 of 5

    trade show booth draws

    Lowe’s smart home technology is a market-leader. But at a trade show synonymous with sexy gadgets, Iris’ plain white form factor made it easy to overlook. The solution: humanize Lowe’s ultra-easy DIY technology by leveraging the universal power of storytelling.

  • Once upon a time ...

    3 of 5

    trade show booth experience

    Lowe’s turned their house into a home by stationing professional Brand Ambassadors from GetSynchronicity in every room. After being trained on the finer points of Lowe’s Iris technology, GetSynchronicity helped each Brand Ambassador identify personal, real-life experiences which they then used continually (and strategically) during their product “storytelling.”

  • Make it sticky

    4 of 5

    Each personal story was designed to appeal to specific attendee needs and profiles. This strategy succeeded in transforming the dry “how to” of Lowe’s DIY technology story into a compelling, emotionally-driven human story … told by real humans.

  • And the winner is …

    5 of 5

    trade show audience engagement

    The results speak for themselves; the booth was packed throughout the entire 4-day show, Time Magazine ranked it one of the Top 10 Best Booths at CES; and, as expected, attendee reactions were “through the roof!”  (Maybe not the best metaphor for smart home technology.)
