What is convention advertising? The definition of convention advertising is advertising that is visible to conference/convention/trade show/exhibition/exposition attendees and exhibitors.

Convention ads (also known as conference ads, trade show ads, exhibition advertising and exposition ads) is a category of marketing that includes promotion of an exhibitor's booth, products or services to convention attendees. It generally includes any advertising display visible to attendees on their way to the convention, conference, trade show, exhibition or exposition.

Convention ad formats include airport ads, street furnture ads - such as bus shelter ads, newsstands and kiosks, taxi ads, mobile billboards and more. Basically, anything that is seen by visitors to the convention or conference.

Conference ads are available in most large markets and near most convention centers.

  • Airport ads reach attendees and exhibitors as they arrive and depart from the hosting city.
  • Street furniture ads reach the same demographic as they walk or drive around the venue.
  • Taxi ads are visible to attendees and exhibitors as they commute back and forth from the venue or travel around the city for meetings and food and entertainment.
  • Mobile billboad trucks have ads on both sides that reach attendees as they enter and exit the convention center or nearby hotels and restaurants.
