An exhibition is an event which is organised to allow businesses to showcase their products and services to the public, or to other businesses.
Exhibitions and trade shows still provide the best sales and marketing opportunities and provide many benefits if executed correctly. If planned well to ensure you are attending the right event, with the right people, and the right approach, then your business will see a return on your investment.
There are different types of exhibitions you can attend depending on your business objectives.
Many factors need to be considered when choosing the right event for your business. Location, target market, cost, marketing objectives and most importantly – how you will present yourself as a professional business.
Here are 5 different types of exhibitions and the product solutions we have to offer to make sure you stand out from the crowd.
Large Scale Exhibition Trade Shows
For a large scale exhibition or trade show it’s important that you understand the expected foot flow of the show. Most events will advise exhibitors of the amount of visitors that have pre-registered to attend so that you know how busy the event is likely to be. If you are a regular exhibitor you will already have some idea of what to expect.
For a large show you can guarantee there will be a large exhibition hall full with row after row of businesses competing for the attention of each and every visitor that passes. Not only competing for their undivided attention during the show, but competing for their first thought after the show too.
You don’t just want to impress whilst you’re there you want to stand out enough to be remembered once the exhibition is over.
We create, design and build bespoke exhibition stands that get you results. Whatever your ambitions or budget we are able to design a stand that can wow your potential customers and meet your business and marketing objectives.
With a wide range of exhibition systems available we will take your concept and design something unique to your brand.
With the thousands of visitors that will be passing your stand it’s vital that you pull out all the stops to ensure you impress, and gain the new business leads that you have set out to acquire.
Creating a custom bespoke exhibition stand is the perfect way to do this. Talk to our dedicated exhibition stand project manager to start your exhibition stand design call on 01733 511030.
