Your trade show booth only has a few moments to attract the attention of attendees through the noise and activity of the exhibit floor. If it doesn’t attract the attention needed, the time, effort, and money spent getting ready for the event is wasted. It is even worse if your booth attracts attention, but fails when it comes to delivering the right message. This causes attendees to lose confidence in your company’s ability to produce the solutions they seek. The use of trade show displays can either hurt or help you generate leads during a trade show. The following paragraphs cover the first steps to planning for a trade show event and how to make sure your trade show display provides maximum impact.
Identify Your Limitations
Each trade show is different and the space reserved is not always well suited for certain kinds of displays. Before deciding on the trade show display you want to use at the show, call the event organizers. Inquire about the size of your event table and booth. In addition, find out if you will have electricity and access to additional electrical outlets near your booth space. Many trade shows have limits on the acceptable height of displays. Find out all of the booth limitations, if any, so you can adequately prepare for the trade show.
Plan Your Display Before The Show
Base the type of displays you use at your booth on your budget and objectives for the trade show. Are you trying to put forth a certain image of your company? If so, design a display that supports this vision and is consistent with the branding of your company. Will you promote a new product recently launched by your company? If so, design your display featuring the new product while making sure it is consistent with your company branding.
Design For The Purpose
It is critical to use creative, attention grabbing design at trade shows. Attendees may only pass your booth once during a show due to a trade show’s massive size. Don’t limit the attention you attract. Make sure your display not only attracts attention, but also serves its purpose by yielding contact information from qualified attendees. Your trade show display should draw people to your booth and inspire attendees to speak with your staff and request further information.
Make A Fast First Impression
Many trade shows feature hundreds of booths decorated with bright, colorful displays and banners, all working to grab the attention of attendees. It is challenging to stand out from the crowd. Some exhibitors go so crazy trying to attract attention that they sacrifice their marketing message in the process. Your trade show display must attract attendees, but it should also make a lasting impression that drives them to seek additional information, take literature, and speak with your staff. If your display doesn’t make this impression fast, you will have wasted money and a valuable opportunity.
Locating A Trade Show Display Company
Whether you select Chicago trade show displays, or displays from a company in another city, it is vital the company delivers your trade show displays fast and on budget. The company should have plenty of experience working with businesses in the market of your business. This gives them the expertise to suggest themes, special elements, and visual designs that will communicate your company’s message and attract the attention from attendees you need.
Your trade show display ultimately supports your marketing strategy for the entire event. Your success in attracting the attention of attendees who become customers down the road depends on a trade show display that provides maximum impact.
