Rules to follow to get the best memorable impact from your exhibition stand – Part 5


#5 Rule Number Five: Teach and Hold the Audience.

It’s very easy to lose your story in the endless number of blogs, articles and media used today. You must stand out somehow! So don’t be just another writer; bland does not cut the mustard, never has, never will!

Be controversial as long as you believe it, instil a profound message or maybe have a moral twist, give a lesson to your audience. But don’t become a preacher but you can be an advocate.

Stories have been utilised, since time immemorial, to impart wisdom and teach lessons to humanity, our brains are attuned to it. The most memorable stories are those with a twist or some form of humour to them and as always a picture is worth a thousand words. Even when a person is telling a story, because we think in pictures, all they are doing is describing a picture for your brain to paint. So try and incorporate this into your exhibition stand.
Not an easy task but maybe some of these adverts will give you some inspiration.

Another great short cut is to add a TV screen or some multimedia to your exhibition stand. In the past a slide show was state of the art but in today’s world if you want to hold your audience, get your story across, animated presentations and interactive media are a must. A good video with a little twist preferably with humour is the way to do it. If looking for inspirations take a look a few adverts on youtube.

Our Exhibition Stand Services

Our exhibition stand design company specialises in one-off bespoke stands that can be reused time and again. We supply your custom stands with full design and build services, including a free consultation and 3D render that shows what your stand will look like. You can rest assured that it will meet all your requirements.

Invest in a self build solution and plan for cost savings. Commissioning a bespoke, self build exhibition stand will maximise your opportunities to increase sales, while minimising the cost of attending shows. Our stands are designed to be super durable, easy to set up and will pack down as small as possible, for convenient transportation and storage. We include training in setting up your stand if required.

You can benefit from our free hire plan. It is the most cost-effective exhibition stand rental scheme on the market. You only pay for your graphics and the installation and dismantle service, as we loan you the stand hardware completely free of charge. However big or small your stand is, hardware hire from us is still free. There are no strings attached or ongoing commitments, and our rental plan can save you up to 75% on the cost of exhibiting at further shows. As the installation and dismantle is done for you, all you need to do is show up and exhibit.
