Gilson’s Retail World Goes Retro at GlobalShop 2017

Marketing Power Up Booth

At GlobalShop, Gilson dares to be different! This year’s GlobalShop display was no exception, we showed off a brand new retro gaming-themed booth that explores the various levels of “Retail World” – and how Gilson can help you reach the top of your game. If you’re looking for new ways to promote your business, look no further!

Gilson’s Retro World at GlobalShop

GlobalShop, which takes place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV from March 28-30, is the world’s largest retail trade show and conference. Gilson has attended for the last several years, with booth displays each year that encouraged participation and engagement from those passing by.

Gilson Power Up GlobalShop

This year’s booth included a massive digital display, broadcasting a fun (and educational) retro video developed by Gilson’s creative team. Also, our big crowd-stopper was the live-action Nerf gun shooting range, which encouraged attendees to participate by hitting moving targets with suction cup darts. People got to test their skills against marketing “enemies” in a fun and retro way.

The darts made an appearance in the pre-show campaign as well. Gilson mailed a dart to select attendees and encouraged them to ‘Save The Dart!’ and visit Gilson at the show for a chance to win prizes. The direct mail pieces helped draw a parallel between Gilson’s message and the theme of the booth, increasing foot traffic and recognition of Gilson’s name at the show. The promotion was fun and effective while having a retro flair!
