Tradeshow Booth Staffing – Exploding Kittens

Case Studies

Tradeshow booth staffing at PAX Unplugged

Exploding Kittens is a highly strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. The brand hired Kinetic Events to represent and promote the new game in a fun and engaging way. The game offers multiple versions for all ages, and has seen great success at conventions such as PAX East, WonderCon, GenCon and more. Our event staff put on multiple activations giving attendees an experience unlike no other. A giant interactive vending machine was the exciting concept where attendees could push a button and receive Exploding Kittens' card games, merchandise, and random objects provided by some of our behind the scenes trade show staff.
