Exhibition Staff

What are Exhibition staff and can I be one?

Exhibition staff are people that fill a variety of roles within an event or tradeshow.  These roles include:

  • Exhibition stand hostess
  • Receptionists
  • Hospitality hostess
  • Promotion staff
  • Exhibition staff
  • Coffee baristas
  • Lead generation staff
  • Sales staff
  • Costume Characters & Presenters
  • Translator / Interpreter
  • And many more.

So why do companies hire people or models for these role? Well its simple. Most companies are small businesses and so only have a certain number of full time staff. Exhibitions and trade shows run anything from a single day to a week and in that time they can be very busy. The exhibitor has to maximise their ability to do business in such a short time frame and that often included hiring temporary staff to help. This is where anyone looking for short term work can help.
So what qualities do I need to become an exhibition staff?  Qualities are role dependant and also dependant on what the company are looking for but there are some general qualities that fit most people and these are:

  • Be personable
  • Well-groomed and professional
  • Able to learn quickly about a product
  • Have common sense
  • Passionate
  • Punctual and reliable
  • Energetic and Engaging.
