Top Creative Ideas For Exhibition Stands

No one reads exhibition stands.

No one goes to an exhibition to read, that is what libraries are for. They go to exhibitions to be wooed, looking for opportunities to discover something new and relevant to them.

Walking round an exhibition people are bombarded with colours, images, free things, videos, sounds, smells the list goes on. The senses are being thrilled from every angle.

So how would anyone’s attention be attracted by paragraphs of boring, dull, grey text extolling the virtues of your great new product?

Chances are it wouldn’t happen…

You could literally write the lyrics to “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” (if you can spell it) on your stand and it would not make a blind bit of difference, unless Dick van Dyke turned up and started singing.

The three things that are a must in your stand design are:

  • Logo (include your strap line if you have one)

  • Big bold images, the fewer and bigger the better.

  • Why you are there? Are you launching a new product? Are you there to launch a new service? Promoting a long standing product? Well tell them then. Don’t rely on your staff having to talk to every single person that walks past the stand, as this is impossible.

Anything else is mostly superfluous. Your design should be uncomplicated, have a high visual and most of all, be engaging to the passer by. At an exhibition people are rarely engaged by reams of text!
