At exhibitions & trade shows I provide walkabout/roaming entertainment as well as working stationary, 'stall format'. If there's little footfall around the stand/booth, I can seek out and deliver a smiling & receptive audience to the team by bringing cheerful attendees back with me to be sketched,.

"We had great feedback on the biro sketches, and I used the photos in my analysis of the trade fair when I presented it to our senior management, and they seemed pretty impressed!"

I'm hired to provide trade show entertainment to increase footfall and help generate sales & leads of course, but collecting data on potential customers is equally important - and I'm an expert at the collection of vital data - on big ears and noses.
