Halloween & Party Expo Creates The SMART Event Experience to Showcase NEW Products for 2020

The entire experience is powered by Konduko and creates a digital hand-shake between buyers and sellers​

Trumbull, CT (November 4, 2019)  – The Halloween & Party Expo and Halloween & Costume Association announced today that the upcoming Halloween & Party Expo, January 17-19, 2020 will be a SMART Event, powered by Konduko – focusing on enhancing the customer experience through new technology and providing an easier way for buyers and sellers to connect. The event will be enhanced by new tap technology in the attendee badge and at the exhibitor booths, making it easier for customers to see new products, connect with exhibitors and exchange information on demand.
“We are continually looking at how we can enhance customer experience through the use of technology and provide more value for each of our customers during the event as well as highlight new product launches,” said show director, Marni Golden Vinci.  “By introducing The SMART Event Technology, powered by Konduko, we are now able to allow more buyer and seller connections that make the show experience that much easier and more efficient for our customers.” 

The SMART Event Technology at Halloween & Party Expo is focused on elevating the NEW products launching in 2020 by highlighting those products at the exhibitors’ booth, in the new product showcases and at variety of areas and special events around the show floor. The tap technology makes is easy for attendees to tap their badge after talking with exhibitors, or seeing products of interest. Each day they receive a daily digest of the booths they visited and company and product information from the exhibiting company.
The SMART Event Technology, powered by Konduko, presents a new twist on traditional lead retrieval focusing on highlighting new products and not only puts more control into the attendees’ hands, but allows exhibitors to generate more leads through an immediate exchange of information which has shown to provide more customer engagement during the event.
