In the tech conference world, SXSW Interactive 2017 has been another event in which VR, robot, and drones manufacturers continue to show consumers that they are ready to scale and take off as a consumer product. One of the highlights of this year’s SXSW Tradeshow was Kika’s stand, which attracted thousands of people to watch and take part in emoji games extravaganza.
Kika Tech is the creator of the #1 downloaded Android Keyboard app in the Google Play Store and has garnered over 275 million downloads for its signature app, Kika Emoji Keyboard.
The small team of Kika employees, clad in their blue t-shirts standing inside their colorful booth, set up classic college games and put a fun, interactive emoji twist on each of them. Over the course of 4 days thousands of visitors lined-up to play “Emojified” games like Corn Hole, Can-Jam, and Beer Pong for a huge variety of prizes.
“Tech tradeshows are supposed to be fun! For us at Kika, that is Rule #1. We want to interact with our current users, create new users, showcase our fun, imaginative core values to our current and potential partners, and eventually send every visitor home with something to remember us by,” said Marc Richardson, GM, Kika Tech.
Kika booth visitors were able to win emoji pillows, t-shirts, bags, hats, frisbees, and the list goes on, yet maybe surprisingly, the undisputed most sought after prize was the “poo emoji” sunglasses.
Despite the fact that the poo emoji almost never shows up as a top used emoji in many of the “Emoji Usage Reports” that get released year after year, its evident to Kika Tech that the poo emoji is consistently the most desired emoji product at marketing events.
This year at SXSW was no different as Kika’s “Poo Vision” sunglasses were won by almost 1000 tradeshow visitors. And after the glasses sold out, the Kika “poo emoji” stickers were the next to grab the attention of booth visitors.
Love it or not, “poo” is everywhere and many of Kika Keyboard’s worldwide marketing events proves that the “poo emoji” is probably everyone’s secret most favorite emoji of ALL!
