Trade Show Marketing and Display Ideas

Trade Show Booth Design – It’s all in the details.

Booth design is an integral part of your trade show marketing plan and should not be overlooked. The biggest mistake companies can make in designing their space is lack of innovation. The more modern your display, the more contemporary your company is perceived to be. Think outside of the box, use your company branding and don’t be afraid to try something bold.

Not sure where to begin? Consider implementing one or several of the booth design ideas below into your marketing plan.

  • Small budget? Covering your table in a cloth that is bright or one that matches your business colors is an easy way to draw the eye. If the budget allows, have a custom cover created to showcase your logo and company branding.
  • Use a tablet or, if possible a large screen to display high quality images of products or services your business offers.
  • Utilize large, eye catching graphics and signage to stand out in the crowded exhibition space and remember to limit your messaging on large graphics to a slogan or short phrase. The more words, the less likely to be read.
  • If possible, hang tall banners or use lighting that can be seen above your booth to capture attention from a distance.
  • Offer refreshments that have an enticing aroma or are visually stimulating, such as coffee, baked goods or a colorful and inviting candy display.
  • Engage visitors by conducting live demonstrations of your products or services if applicable.
