Trade shows are a great way to showcase your business and what you can do to serve the public. However, there are tons of other great exhibit booth designs there which is precisely why you need to have a fantastic custom exhibit design for your own station. There are several things besides just the design of your booth that can make you stand out against all the other booths that are at the trade show. Here are a few ideas for making yourself be seen.
What the Trade Show Exhibit Design Looks Like
Since the custom exhibit design idea was already mentioned, let’s go ahead and cover that one. Having an interactive exhibit design is important to catching people’s eye. There are going to be so many things to look at and talk about at the show, that your one little booth needs to be the eye catcher. Keep in mind that people do have a plan when they come to these shows, usually, so you don’t want to be too over bearing in your custom exhibit design but you want to make sure that they see you at the very least. The reason why you want a custom exhibit design is that you want to be sure that no one else as a similar layout to yours. You want to show people that you are different and not the same run of the mill service that everyone else is.
What Your Workers Act Like
Each worker that you put at your booth should be friendly and approachable. There should be no miserable or angry people. Your workers need to act like this is the best job they have ever had and there’s nothing in the world that could pull them away from it even if they hate the whole trade show experience. Side note: your best bet is to not place workers in the booth that hate trade shows; it makes it easier for the booth workers to be happier about being there and give off a good impression. No one is going to buy products or services from someone who hates their job and doesn’t believe in the product.
What Your Workers Look Like
How your workers look matters to. Holey jeans and dirty t-shirts aren’t going to attract serious buyers. Your workers should look professional, clean and attractive. If your booth workers aren’t serious enough about the product to attract attention by looking nice and presentable, then the consumers aren’t going to give it a second thought either. There’s nothing wrong with fun costumes or shirts that attract attention but they should be family friendly and professional. Trade shows are open to all ages so families may have younger children accompanying them at times. Don’t put anything in your booth that is going to offend potential business.
What Your Booth Offers
Obviously, you need to believe in your product and service in order to sell it. There is no way you’ll be able to sell a product that no one needs. Put in the research before deciding what you will be offering at the trade show. The most attractive services or products are what should be at the forefront of your booth and then if people want more information, you can show them the other things that are offered at that point.
The whole idea of a trade show is to let people know who you area and what you sell. It’s a great opportunity to get your business out there where it might otherwise not have been seen. If you keep that goal at the forefront of your mind then you will be able to set up your booth, product, workers and design properly. Also keep in mind that this could be your ‘big break.’ Some businesses that are little start ups end up blowing up at trade shows and becoming the talk of the town. Make sure that you don’t underestimate how much a trade show could potentially help your business whether you are already established or are just opening your doors for the first time. It is great advertisement so you want to make sure you give off a fantastic first impression.
