How Trade Show Flooring Can Save Your Feet
Concrete is hard. Padding is soft. Hours on your feet at a trade show, manning an exhibit display is rough. Studies have shown that the more bounce you have in your step, the longer your joints last and the longer you can go without resting. That is why runners buy special running shoes for the long miles and why chefs usually wear padded kitchen shoes for the long hours in the kitchen.
It’s the same thing at a trade show. Marketing staff manning the company trade show booth at an important show will be standing on hard concrete for hours and hours and need to maintain their energy, attitude and focus for that important potential customer who could visit the booth next. Sometimes it feels like a marathon to make it to the last day of the show. After the first day, exhibitors drag themselves into bed exhausted and red eyed only to have to do the same thing for the next several days. Not only that, some important customers need to be wined and dined after the exhibit floor hours are over, so a long day can turn into a long drawn out evening too.
What’s the answer? Well, good shoes for one thing. But more to the point, why not simply use anti-fatigue trade show flooring in your exhibit. Not only will it save your feet, but it will help keep you from getting needlessly fatigued all day.
There are benefits outside of the anti-fatigue properties that trade show flooring offers.
For one thing, there are multiple colors you can use to coordinate or compliment an exhibit design. There are multiple textures you can use to help theme your display.
There are even graphic floors that allow you to add a logo or a full color image. There is a huge array of choices at your disposal. Each style of flooring gives exhibitors a different solution depending on their needs. Interlocking trade show foam tiles offer easy set up and transport along with inlaid logos and color choices. You can mix and match colors to create patterns like a checker board. Another interlocking tile choice is comfort carpet tiles that work the same way and offer a low pile carpet top. Of course there is trade show carpeting, tradeshow hardwood flooring, diamond tiles, dance floors, raised flooring, custom printed trade show carpet and full color printed vinyl flooring. There is even a line of artificial grass available. Most trade show flooring is very portable, packing into a few exhibit cases. Also available is standard rolls of trade show carpet for any size exhibit booth or even the entire show floor. Most flooring is extremely affordable as a percentage of your entire display but it offers an outstanding value for design and anti-fatigue properties.
Need some ideas for trade show flooring? First, look at your show displays color scheme. What color would help compliment the rest of the design or add to the impact. Do you need something blindingly bright like a sun yellow floor for your orange color scheme or do you just need a professional looking gray that won’t detract from your display. Maybe your display needs a special effect. How about a floor that is built like a light box and offers different colored gels to dramatically create a mood. You may also need an image on the floor to blend in with the overall display. A tree farm displaying their product on a floor that looks like a pasture for example. The options are really endless.
So save your feet at the next trade show and enhance your design!
