Whether it’s virtual reality, participating in a DIY project, watching a demo or playing a trivia game, there are many way to get guests involved in your brand/booth design. Participation ensures a memorable experience by encouraging the potential consumer to interact with you and your products. Show them what you bring to the table and why they need what you are offering. For example, with a game or demo, showcase the capabilities of your business.

Larger than Life 

Most importantly, you want to ensure your booth design is attractive. Imagine yourself walking through the mall and stop by an attractive window display. This display entices you to go into the store and learn more about the products for sale. The same can be said for your booth display. It must be larger than life, capture attention and be inviting. Think big (or small) and create large, lifelike replicas of your product. For example, if you’re selling paint, create a giant sized paint brush and paint can. Alternatively, if you’re selling furniture, create a miniature room where guests can view a room from a birds eye view. Get creative, add textures, and don’t be afraid to be loud! That is how your booth design can stand apart from the others.

Although consumers are essentially coming to the show to make purchases, they may not be ready to make a decision that day. Especially if you are offering a big ticket item. As a result, it’s a good idea to have giveaways or items they can bring home with them to remember you later. Similar to a souvenir, give guests something to remember you by. Giveaways can range in price, but the most crucial component is that it is branded. Whether it be a pen, mug, notepad or t-shirt, utilize your brand colours. You can even add your contact information!
