Refurbished Trade Show Exhibit

The end of summer is quickly approaching. And for many that means time to set the annual budget. Is this the year you replace your trade show exhibit or can you get by with refurbishing one more time?

It’s certainly up to you. Designers prefer to start fresh and clean with a new booth but you (and your budget) ultimately make the decision. Chances are a logo has changed or your sales strategy has been tweaked and your trade show booth needs to reflect that update.

NHRA Trade Show Exhibit

Once a vehicle has been sold by the original manufacturer, it belongs to the automotive aftermarket. This industry deals with vehicle parts, chemicals, tools, equipment and accessories that are necessary for remanufacturing and retail of a vehicle.

It didn’t take long for us to decide on our top 3 trade show picks for the automotive aftermarket industry. Just to be sure - we checked - these 3 were also included in TSNN’s Top 250 List for 2012.

Don’t you hate it when you go to get your hair cut and end up with a style you didn’t want? Or your server in the restaurant thought you said extra dressing when you said no dressing? The problem is - they didn’t listen to what you wanted. Fortunately for you, that won’t happen at DesignShop.

Trade show booth lighting

If you built a new home, you would spend lots of time and money choosing the right light fixtures for each room. It shouldn’t be much different when you build a trade show exhibit. Lighting is just as important as your exhibit design, custom flooring and beautiful graphics. People receive 85% of their information through their sense of sight so it is important to make sure the lighting is right at your trade show display so people can see what you want them to see.

Social Media and Your Trade Show Event

Although you may personally want to avoid social media you simply cannot ignore it in your professional life. Unless you want your company to be ignored. Yes, really.

If 60% of Americans are on Facebook today - wouldn’t it be safe to assume 60% of your trade show attendees are too? And if you don’t engage with these potential clients, your competitors will.
