How do you sell your ISP to businesses?  Might want to use some material from that.  

MIght want to highlight how a local business or school uses your ISP with success.  Maybe throw in some technical info, like how redundant your ISP is, or how fast it is.

You will want to show that you deliver good bandwidth, a stable connection, and really the best proof of that is a good video conferencing - it can be something as simple as a Skype Video Call, being up during the exhibition. You may even want to have several calls to different continents.

If your ISP network engineers agree on such a demonstration, your ISP has a good network :)

In addition, you may want to have some photos/posters from your main data center, showing off your best equipment.

Photos from your NOC is often useful too.

If your audience is more technical, and there is no issue with confidentiality, you can also disply a network map that shows which your uplinks are, and at what Internet Exchanges you are present.

If you run your own access network (like ADSL) details on that may be interesting too.

Video conferencing (Skype) was an excellent suggestion. In addition online videos (Netflix) or gaming could also be demonstrated as could file transfers (upload/downloads)

I would set up mrtg and create graphs showing ping times to varios well know servers and the amount of bandwidth you are using.
Do you use your isp for voip?
Does it have QOS
What other services it performs for you?
