Major Ways to Improve Your Show

At Booth Design Ideas we understand that getting into the show/conference is just step one. Yet, many exhibitors struggle to get a really standout exhibit/booth. For many, this is due to a low budget or placement of exhibit. However, through using simple techniques such as those found in 15 Trade Show Booth Success Tips, you can stand out.

Booth Designs Top Show Tips For Beginners

Are you looking to attend a show in Las Vegas? Not sure how to start or even begin to understand the design for a 20×20 or 30×30? Well, look no further! Here at Booth Design Ideas, we have compiled seven key ways to help you get started.

Budget Based on Usage

Budget, Budget, Budget we cant say it enough. When it comes to looking into buying or renting and exhibit the first step is always budget. From $10,000 to $60,000 it’s always important to know what you can spend on a particular product. Specifically, if you don’t plan on exhibiting at shows more than once per year. Too many times companies end up buying something that is way above whats needed, or far under expectations. Resulting in many customers being upset and wasting their companies money.


Creation of a timeline is by far the most importantly underrated factor for first-time exhibitors. For many first-timers, 8-6 months out is the ideal time to have your booth or exhibit built. Too many times companies attempt to rush production and result in a lackluster product. However, by following this timeline it allows for potential problems to be fixed and creates a better process for production. Additionally, the overall timeline for the actual show itself is key. For first time exhibitors, allowing extra time for set up is highly recommended. Its often possible that equipment is not there on time or the loading dock is backed up. Thus, allowing that extra couple of hours can go along way. In conclusion, timing will be a key factor in having an extremely successful exhibit.

Show Size 

This next tip might be simple but is something a majority forget when signing up for a show. Many first-time exhibitors believe that the bigger the show the more people and the bigger the ROI. However, this can be misleading and leave your 20×20 overshadowed by an 80×80 with all the bells and whistles. To understand how to be successful, find a show in which you stand out and have a large enough audience for good return. Attempting to go to big or too small can have negative outcomes.


This next tip may sound simple but is something that many people largely overlook. Placement of your booth within a show can either be the death or saving grace for many first time exhibitors. Which in turn is why it’s ideal to understand the sweet spots to place your exhibit at your first show. A great example of one of these “sweet spots” is typically on the corners of a row. That can allow you two entrance points for clients and fantastic walk by traffic. Another great option for placement is at an entrance or exit from the show. However, typically these locations are in high demand and difficult to get. Lastly and not often thought of, our locations near bathrooms or food areas. These areas provide great focus points where people are typically waiting and looking for distractions.


The next tip we at Booth Design Ideas believe is all about staffing for the show on labor and showtime. For many beginners understanding the labor can be very confusing based on location. From set up times to mandatory break times, labor workers can present a complex problem. Which is why we suggest that people do ample research and consulting before choosing a labor force. Additionally, staffing your booth is just as important at a show. From making sure you’re not over-staffed or under-staffed. Along with choosing the right people to present your product. Research done beforehand is key to having a successful show.


The next tip is something that varies with state or geographic location. This being the use of Trade Show Unions at your next show. For many first time exhibitors, it can be very confusing and labor unions have very strict policies on what you can and cannot do. One example is with booth set pre-show. Here many union workers are guaranteed mandatory breaks and times they can work. So understanding when those breaks are is key to maximizing your time and money. Finally, understand the additional loading and unloading rates that may come into factor for your show.

Consumer Experience

For your first show, it is important not to only be creative but to also create an active experience. Many exhibitors forget to look at the show from the consumers perspective and create a booth based on what they think is important. However, to really keep to the client interested to your product you have to create a consumer experience.  This can be done in a number of ways, from giveaways to interactive games and applications. Typically, the more creative the better chance they will remember you!
