Selection of space
Your selection of space should be wise. Prefer getting the space nearby the entrance, it would increase your visibility to the customers approaching trade shows. Try to get the show’s floor plan as that would suggest the best area for you to set your booth. Prefer to pick the area nearby food, entertainment or book section.
Timing of trade shows should be considered because any clash of trade show with any popular event might divert the customers from reaching the trade show.
Pick the right spot-or get as close as you can!
Location is very important for a booth. If your booth is tucked away in a far away corner where no one ever reaches, then you are as good as absent from the event. Find a spot that suits your brand style, and is not overshadowed by the presence of other big names. Chat with the event organizer and try to get your chosen spot, or as close a spot as you can that fits within your budget.
Be creative without going over-board
Creativity and original thought for your trade show stands and booth will always set you apart from the rest, but ensure that this does not mean you are going over the board. There is a fine line between exaggerated and subtle, so learn to walk the divide with ease.
