Need a Show-Stopping Booth at FIME?
We have years of experience designing and building exhibit booths for a wide variety of businesses and industries, including the medical industry. The following are a few tips for creating a show-stopping booth of your very own.
Booth Configuration and Placement:
The proper configuration and placement of your booth are essential to attracting the right audience.
- If you are exhibiting, you should contact an exhibit house with experience in delivering booths to this show because they understand the floor and know what you need in your booth.
- If you are selling a product, you would want a more linear configuration, and if you are selling services, an exhibit with private closing space is preferable.
The interior layout of your booth and your visual communications will determine who comes to visit your booth and how much time they spend looking around.
- 20 x 20 Booth configurations and larger are allowed to have overhead signage that increases long-range visibility on the trade show floor.
- 10 x 10 Booth configurations are great for those new to the show. Your booth can still make an impact within a small space. Clever use of high-definition 3D graphics and LED skin walls create dynamic visual communications and branding.
Product display walls, custom lightboxes, furniture groupings, state-of-the-art AV, and welcome desks are all elements of a successful booth regardless of size at FIME 2021.
Staffing and Service:
Once your potential client is in the booth, it is up to your sales and marketing team to engage with them and deliver the brand message. Your staff should focus on your show targets, not your exhibit. To ensure they can dedicate their full attention to your guests, your booth needs to have minimal distractions and “parts” that need frequent adjustments.
