Garden festivals are a welcome break for a lot of attendees:
Outdoor parties and garden festivals help people to break the monotony of urban living. It gives them a chance to be one with nature and to appreciate its bountiful ambiance. It is, therefore, important that all the fringe activities ideas that you plan to conduct should be centered on the theme of nature.
Singapore is a country within the garden, and when a country with that kind of legacy holds garden festivals, people are going to expect a lot more.
Exhibitions held during and around the garden festival see humungous numbers of tourists flying in to experience this biennial event. It features some of the best heads in the world and showcases their work. Therefore, you cannot afford to be mediocre with fringe activities ideas for an exhibition being planned.
Games that are centered on the rich flora and fauna of the country:
As a warm-up, you could give each participant a small booklet on all the rich forest heritage of the country which they can browse while they are participating in the exhibition or browsing products. They can log in to a contest that will test them on their knowledge of what all they have witnessed throughout the day.
Fringe activities ideas for exhibition need not be something that involves a lot of money:
It could be something as simple as ‘Guess the flower.’ You could ask the participants to blindfold themselves. The conductor of the games will go around, giving each of the participants a whiff of the flower or herb that grows in the garden. The participant has to say in the conductor’s ears, the name of the flower or herb. The participant with the highest number of correct answers emerges as the winner.
The Singapore garden festival is a world-famous event:
People throng in droves to experience. If you are an exhibitor that wants to attract a lot of guests to your booth, there are a lot of creative ways to do it.
Create Facebook and Instagram pages and conduct easy contests relating to your company and/or products. Guests who answer the contest question correctly may be invited to your booth to present them with prizes or mementos. This will allow you to engage with them professionally.
Create unique hashtags and let the contestants post their pictures and experience at the exhibition and, more specifically, at your business booth. Ask them to participate in the fishbowl game.
Encourage guests to put their visiting cards into a fishbowl. Draw out a card to announce the winner for the day. Keep prizes substantial; otherwise, people may not want to part with all their professional information for something too small and inconsequent.
Selfie booths with photo props and a professional photographer to click pictures work like magic. Create natural and scenic backgrounds reflecting Singapore’s tourist spots for guests to click selfies with their phones.
Engage the kids!
All children at exhibitions get bored after a while. Do them a favor by having some coloring booths, face painting booths, Lego bricks, and a dollhouse! You can hire trained babysitting staff while you engage grownups professionally. Gift them cute personalized stationery and be sure that they are going to pester their parents to bring them back there!
