Tips For You!
You want to maximize the use of the space effectively for your trade show and your visitors to remember what they see when they are visiting your booth. The key is to not clutter your booth area. You probably want to display lots of products in your booth, but instead, pick one or two to highlight at the show. You can always prepare a good amount of brochures to hand out at the show to promote your other products. The backdrop is one of the important parts you want to focus on because that’s what the visitors will see first when they are walking around at the show. When planning your graphics, especially for the backdrop, make sure the graphic are bold and will draw attention. For example, strong imagery or a clever caption with a vibrant color background.
