Now that you have an idea of who is attending, why they are attending, and what they are looking for, consider some of our suggestions and trends to watch. For multiple products and one brand release, we recommend a 10×20 exhibit with high resolution graphics, custom synthetic wood flooring, advanced light package, and custom product podiums with 3 demo stations. If you are showcasing one product, keep the focus on the one product with a 10×10 exhibit. This is the least expensive configuration and we can customize it with state of the art AV, branded welcome desk, demonstration area, custom lighting, and custom flooring, for under $7,000. The trends to watch and incorporate into your exhibit are environments that go beyond the salon. We delivered a full beach scene for the product launch of Bare Minerals Sunscreen, and it was a huge success. For scents or more singular products, we have new back lighting and LED skins that run entire high definition clips and movies of your product in real time, in very small spaces! Regardless of your space, or your product, choose an exhibit house with experience, choose Exhibit Experience. rentals@exhibitexperience.com
