The biggest Tech & Startup conference in Cambodia, BarCamp ASEAN 2017 happened last weekend at Institute of Technology of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. We, CONPATH, joined as an exhibitor so I share the result of BarCamp ASEAN 2017 from the view of an exhibitor.

I hope that it would help your decision whether you will join the next Tech & Startup event in Cambodian as an exhibitor and estimating the advantage through Cambodian Tech & Startup event.

BarCamp ASEAN 2017

During the 3 days of BarCamp ASEAN 2017, about 4,500 people participated. And there were 65 exhibitors and 71 sessions.

The number of participants was 350 participants in the first year, 2009, so the event size has expanded much.

So let’s get started to share our result of BarCamp ASEAN 2017.

Category Result
Page Likes + 141
Reach 5,294
Applicants 12

As the table above, we got 141 new Likes, 5,294 reaches, and 12 applicants.
*We boosted our job offer post on our Facebook page with Facebook Ad and it was the first time to join this kind of Tech & Startup event as an exhibitor.

Actually, we did not have much time to prepare for the exhibition, so I guess you can get a better result. Of course, the category of your startup/business affects the result.

To be honest, I’m satisfied with this result. In the first version of the schedule, there was no exhibition on Sunday. But actually, there was. We could not expose our services on Sunday but the actual result was over our estimated result.

Tips of exposing your service at an exhibition

Lastly, I’d like to share some tips of exposing services at an exhibition.

  1. Make a video and show at your booth
  2. At the exhibition area, there were many other exhibitors. So it was really hard to attract participants. In the first day, I researched what kind of exhibitors grab participants’ interest. As the result, I found out that exhibitors which had video, huge banner, or something participants could try, attracted participants.

  3. Make a panel for Selphy
  4. Now is the age of Selphy. Some exhibitors provide a panel for Selphy and take photos for participants.

It’s based on my personal experience and research but these two are the tips for the future exhibitor.
