Trade shows are becoming a must-attend event for both small and large businesses alike. With the economic downturn, many companies have tightened the belt loop on expenses, leaving little or no room for marketing their products and services. In order to increase sales, companies are resorting to cost effective advertising methods. A trade show booth is often the best investment for a company looking to grow by leaps and bounds.
To create an impact at a trade show, a dynamic booth design is critical. Your graphics and banners need to be eye catching and motivate attendees to purchase your products and services. A professional graphic designer/calligraphy artist will create a one of a kind graphic design that will attract visitors and have them talking about your company long after they leave the trade show exhibit. Creating a custom banner with your booth’s focal point is essential as it will be the focal point of your trade show display.
A trade show booth shouldn’t be overcrowded or cluttered with too much information. Customers tend to focus on one exhibit rather than several displays which only distracts them from their intended purchase. Don’t have several exhibits; limit yourself to one or two. Keep the clutter to a minimum by storing products you will be selling at each booth. It’s also a good idea to have a trash can nearby so visitors don’t need to lug around bags of debris as they exit the booth. Your goal should be to make the customer’s experience enjoyable as well as productive.
When considering a trade show booth design, the type of display equipment needed should be considered. The amount of space available in your booth will determine the display equipment needed. Trade show displays come in a variety of sizes, from tables top stands to modular booths. Manufacturers that cater to this particular market offer everything from custom displays, to trade show giveaways, to lighting solutions, and furniture rental. Depending on your specific needs, you may want to consider a combination of one or more of these options.
As you select the right trade show booth, you need to think about how you will promote your event. You can do so in a number of ways, from giving out flyers, to handing out brochures and business cards to potential customers. Or, you can use media such as banners, displays, and signs. No matter what method you choose, it’s important that you keep your focus on your potential customers and highlight your brand at each booth.
Trade shows are an incredible opportunity to connect with other professionals in your field. You can gain valuable new insight and ideas that you can then turn into future campaigns or sales efforts. Your booth will serve you well as you prepare for any type of show, large or small, indoor or outdoor. Your business will be on display and drawing in customers as you entertain them with your unique products and creative marketing ideas.
