When you’re approaching exhibition season and you want a stand that pops, you need to think about how you’re going to stand out from the crowd and draw the kind of attention that gives your business a genuine boost.

In this blog, we take a look at three ways you can make your stand the one that gets seen.

Make it Perfect

You have one chance to get it right and more than that, you have just a few seconds to make the right impression. If you work in the creative industries then visitors to your stand are going to expect the wow factor when it comes to your design, so give them what they demand.

Think as far outside the box as you dare with your stand design, be daring and innovative but just accessible enough to allow people to interact with you. That might be through clever and fun use of technology or a stand that has fun, playful elements to it. The only thing that’s going to limit you is your budget. Talk to experts such as vividads com au for your stand options.

Get Your Behind the Scenes On Side

While your busy working your exhibition magic, you want to make sure your web and social media teams are working theirs. Have social media lives take place from the exhibition hall. Use your presence to generate content across all platforms generating response from potential visitors to the show and plenty of two-way dialogue where you can.

Make That Hard Work Pay

The weeks leading up to your show are the hardest. The day itself is the easy part. In those weeks you should have arranged to meet some of the attendees, so get ready with some corporate hospitality and a goodie bag.

Have clear goals in mind when it comes to meeting with customers. Do you want to gather their contact details, link them up to your marketing emails or make some actual sales? Whatever it is you hope to achieve, make sure you have your staff on board, working together to reach the same objectives.

Have your best team on the stand, those who have proven themselves to be the best at customer engagement and getting results. Exhibitions can also be a great time to train up new team members and create some new energy within the team.

Exhibition season is here and it’s time to get things off to a great start. Get your teams working together to create a stand-out stand. Train up your customer facing staff and have them fully-briefed on what you need them to achieve and find merchandise that your customers are going to love. Go for old school, pens and stickers or shake it up a little with USB sticks, Bluetooth headphones and wind-up torches. You know your customers best so you’ll know what makes them tick and what appeals to them best.

Get it right and have your best exhibition season stand thanks to a creative approach that makes you stand out from the crowd.
