Hot Trade Show Graphic Colors for 2015

Posted on Wed, Apr 13, 2016

It’s an obvious choice to utilize a company color scheme in a trade show exhibit. We see a lot of black and white with [insert standard color here] all over. That’s an acceptable look and there’s a reason it’s so popular but why not take inspiration from fashion and interior design trends to give your exhibit an update? Being different is important in the crowded trade show environment and one way to catch eyes is through a unique color palette.

For the past fourteen years, Pantone (which dubs itself “the global authority on color”) has selected a “Color of the Year”. In December they announced Radiant Orchid (PMS 2352) as the color of the 2014 and it truly has lived up to that name. The fashion, wedding, graphic design and home improvement industries have all embraced the warm purple hue.

Posted on Mon, Apr 11, 2016

But with one-half of respondents considering new builds in the next 12 months – and 85 percent anticipating larger returns on their exhibit-marketing investments than in 2015 – it appears face-to-face marketers are still mostly optimistic, despite slower-than-desired economic increases.

How To Drive Targeted Traffic To Your Trade show Booth

Posted on Thu, Apr 07, 2016

Trade show attendance represents a considerable investment for businesses both big and small. Regardless of a company’s market share, any booth manager will tell you that shows can oftentimes mean the difference between a good year and a stellar year, and the reason is pretty obvious. Trade shows offer the kind of direct access to hundreds or even thousands of prospective clients that you just won’t experience anywhere else. And because most trade shows wrap up after just three days, it means that the window of opportunity to capitalize on the number of leads walking the floor is incredibly short. For this reason, you simply can’t rely solely on bright digital signage to draw in the crowds – in order to make the most of your next trade show; you’re going to have to target your approach.

Know Your Exhibit Options: Custom, Modular, Pop-up Displays

Posted on Tue, Apr 05, 2016

Not all trade show booths are created equal. Each type of display has its proper place, depending on the size of the show, your marketing objectives and your budget. Some companies use different types and sizes of exhibits for different shows, while others rely on just one exhibit for all shows. Knowing your options for trade show displays will help you choose and plan wisely.  What constitutes a display? A trade show display, or an exhibit stand as the Europeans call it, is a graphical display device designed to be used at an event, trade show or trade fair to convey your marketing messages and represent your brand. Exhibit types range from pop-up devices and tabletop displays to typical 20 by 20 foot exhibits to giant, custom booths that make a big statement.
