Don’t DO the Work; Display it
Some components to this that make a quality display are:
- A layout with a purpose
- Clear, precise information
- Interactive features
What this means for a display is that you need to have a clear path to follow. Don’t have too many components all screaming for attention. Allow each section of interest its own space while also leading the attendant to the next point. A layout with a purpose simply means have a specific theme in mind with the display. Don’t override the attendant with too much information. Focus say on a new, innovative product or the process the makes the business so successful. The company commissioned to create the display will usually be able to help with this part. When having a presentation, whether written or spoken, one should always be to the point and as un-convoluted as possible. And finally, interact with the attendants. Get names, or cards; discuss the business, let them have a hands on experience, if possible. Do this, with the addition of an appealing, attention-grabbing display, and trade shows will be nothing but profit.
