The exhibition of luxury goods ‘Millionaire Fair’ in 2007, the research team quans Research Agency is actively applied ethnographic research methods, watching behavior of selected users. It was found a marked increase in tolerance for and interest in the exposure with the passage of time. Comparison of the results of these observations with the results of in-depth interviews conducted among exhibitors and participants after the show, confirmed the hypothesis that the atmosphere of the event promotes sales activity.
