5 New Digital Booth Activities With Our Improved Digital Fishbowl Game

Our award-winning game just got even better.

Our Digital Fishbowl Game won the Buyers Choice Award last year at EXHIBITORLIVE 2018, as an easy kiosk game that motivated attendees to self-enter their lead data to win a prize.

Now we’ve radically expanded the capabilities of this game to create engaging, big-screen digital content, too.

Here’s how it works:  As attendees enter their contact info on iPads or other tablet computers in order to win a prize, they also engage in one of 5 possible activities (listed below). It’s very quick for them to answer a question.  Their answers create digital content that displays on a large results screen.

Most attendees will want to make their contributions to the digital content.  But for those that don’t, the digital content on the big screen is still a great icebreaker for booth staffers, who can ask attendees which answer(s) they like best, and why.

Here are the 5 digital booth activities you can do with the Digital Fishbowl game:

Digital Booth Activity #1: Live Polls (also known as Question of the Day)

Ask visitors to choose what’s their biggest challenge, goal, or desire from up to 5 possible answer choices. Poll results are immediately visible in a cool chart on your big monitor screen, and constantly updated as new attendees take the poll. Set up live polls ahead of time or on the fly in your booth.

Digital Booth Activity #2: Word Cloud

Ask booth visitors for words that best describe their main challenge, their job, the product category you market to, and more.  Put results on the big screen to stop attendees and start conversations. You get a great interactive, and insight into the language your prospects use.

Digital Booth Activity #3: Idea Generation

Ask attendees for their ideas on a relevant subject to your booth experience, such as what new product would they like to see from your company next.  Attendees’ answers are shown on the results screen, and you can download the attendees’ ideas after the show.

Digital Booth Activity #4: Idea Voting

Let attendees vote on ideas you already have captured, such as what product idea they like best, or what tagline best describes your company brand. Results on the screen give you great talking points with all your booth visitors.

Digital Booth Activity #5: Caption This

Put up fun photos for attendees to caption. Then choose the best captions to display in your booth on a scrolling screen. This entertaining activity helps break the ice with attendees.


There are also two more activities you can host with the Digital Fishbowl without the digital results screen.  While there is no big screen of content, you still get a fun interactive activity for more traffic and engagement with your booth visitors:

Interactive Booth Activity #6: Guess the Number

You can ask attendees to give you their best guess on the number of something you have in your booth, such as the pieces of candy in a jar. The Digital Fishbowl records attendees’ answers with their names, so you can quickly look up who is closest to the right answer and name the winner.

Interactive Booth Activity #7: Correctly Answer the Question

You can add a single question to the Digital Fishbowl kiosk screens that booth visitors must answer correctly in order to go on to the next step, be it eligible to win a prize or prove their knowledge.

If you are looking for a simple way to create digital interactive content that’s easy to implement, customized to each show’s attendees, and helps boost your tech image, then consider the enhanced Digital Fishbowl game.  You’ll get more traffic and engagement as you offer up your prize drawing.
