Product Demonstrator Job Description

Product Demonstrators are also referred to as Event Specialist. Job duties vary depending on the vendor, the product and area. Demonstrators promote food products and non food products. Supervisors schedule the dates demonstrators are needed to work an event. A demonstrator may be scheduled to work an event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each event scheduled is for a different vendor, so each working day demonstrators promote different products. A Friday event may be to promote cereal, a Saturday event to promote pizza, a Sunday event promoting a beauty product. Some events promote popular name brand products that sell with ease. Events are scheduled to promote new products or products unfamiliar to customers.

The demonstrators job is to educate and gain the interest of customers about the key benefits of products. Nutritional content, dollar value, easy preparation and recipe suggestions are a few examples of key benefits used to promote food products. A demonstrators typical event duties include setting up the demo cart using a kit with instructions provided by the vendor. A demo cart will usually display signage of the product with brochures and coupons to be handed out to customers. Demo carts are often merchandised with product, and samples of product are available for customers to try. When promoting food product strict guidelines must be followed for safe food handling. Employers provide training and educational tools about food safety.

Food product events are typically at grocery stores such as Walmart and Sam's club. Companies hire product demonstrators to demo products at many different retail stores including pet supplies, electronics, gardening, clothing and toy stores.
