Design to Attract

Does your booth have the “attractor factor”? You don’t have to be the biggest booth in the show to become a magnet for attendees. Too many exhibitors start by simply putting objects together to create a display, which doesn’t necessarily result in a successful exhibit. Instead, determine how all elements of your plan will tie together, then use design elements to accomplish your strategic goals. In this session led by exhibit marketing expert Marlys Arnold, you’ll discover the secrets of a well-designed booth including how to:

– Eliminate common design errors
– Make the space more user-friendly
– Place products and staff to optimize engagement
– Create a multisensory experienc
– Communicate one unified marketing message

Whether you’re an exhibiting novice or long-time veteran, you’ll gain tips for exhibit design to improve your results. You’ll walk away with practical applications and tools you can use immediately to raise your level of success on the show floor.
