Chicago staffing, keys to success

Kinetic Events has been offering Chicago trade show staffing, conference staffing, product launch brand ambassadors and more for over a decade. On any given day, thousands of convention & event attendees pack the halls of McCormick Place, the United CenterNavy Pier, and many other venues around the city. Here are a few tips we've learned over the years to help you create a more successful program when hiring Chicago staff: 

Hiring Chicago brand ambassadors, keys to success

The term "Brand Ambassador" is a pretty broad position, encompassing product launch teams, street teams, experiential marketing specialists, in-store sampling staff, trade show booth workers, user acquisition teams, and many more. Many of our ambassadors specialize in certain roles, and we make sure to bring the right people on for every event. There are many unique considerations for each type of brand ambassador activation.


Street teams and experiential marketing efforts in Chicago need to make special consideration of tourist attractions, such as Millennium Park and the Magnificent Mile, as well as business sectors around The Loop. These areas are flooded with low-brow promotions, so it is important to incentivize consumers to interact with the team by giving samples or coupons for your product or service. If you're looking to spread brand awareness and connect with locals, an experiential marketing booth or street team would fit best in northside Chicago. We've found much success in areas such as the Southport Corridor and Wicker Park. Keep in mind that you must get a permit to flyer in Chicago! In trade show and convention settings, experiential marketing and street team efforts are much more successful when positioned inside the convention centers themselves or very near attendee concentrations.


Brand ambassadors running product demos or acting as sales associates in a corporate event or trade show is one of our strengths in the Chicago market. In a given year, we staff over one hundred trade shows and corporate events in Chicago alone. Our key to success is the well trained and seasoned group of BA's on our roster. We offer sales associates, lead generation, product demonstrators, team building leaders, meeting setters, and more. Recent brand ambassador work in Chicago includes programs with EventbriteGoogleDr. Pepper, and 4Moms

Tips for hiring Chicago promotional models

Chicago is one of our biggest cities for spirits samplings and hostess roles, but this means that our promotional models often book out in advance. If you're planning a liquor sampling or private event that requires a warm welcome, we highly recommend you book at least two weeks out. However, we are always happy to help with last minute events, and we will make sure to pair the best promo model or host/hostess to fit your brand and need. Recent promotional model programs in Chicago include work with Don JulioJ.CrewShrewd Foods, and Jameson.

Hire convention staffing in Chicago

In the Chicago market, event staffing often encompasses ticketing, registration, and other conference related roles. These are different than other staffing roles since they primarily deal with the operational aspects of a convention or trade show. Additional roles include room monitors, box office management and way-finders. We are a great choice for this type of work, as we have a depth of understanding of the planning and detailed focus associated with conference, trade show and festival staffing, prior to the event itself. We have a dedicated roster of over 100 event staff, all W2 compliant, in Chicagoland.

Testimonials

It was great working with Brian and the team at Kinetic Events during the early days of Deep Eddy and over the last few years. Your team's Event Planning background came in handy in our statewide consumer launches, allowing us strike the balance between creative consumer interaction and scalability. Thanks again for the hard work!

Dim Mak Records Block Party

Thank you so much for your help with Steve Aoki's Block Party event in Los Angeles! It was really important to me that we had a team with both event experience and technical know how, and your team delivered. Entry management and box office work can be super stressful, so I was happy to turn everything over to you guys and not worry about it. Hope to work together again in the future. :)
