Exhibition Stand Design

Unique Exhibition Stands

5 top tips for making your stand the one visitors will remember, for the right reasons.


  1. Get Creative. Why have a stand that looks like every other when you could have one that makes people stop in their tracks? Agribank turned their stand into a barn at LAMMA , Mailwaukee use an exhibition trailer called ‘Big Red’ that now has its own following on Twitter!

  1. Interaction – Why not set up a game or competition for visitors? A very successful example would be when Bentley set the challenge of rolling 6’s on seven dice to win a car. This is also a great opportunity to collect contact information – just ask visitors to leave their business card in a bowl as an entry to the competition.


  1. Make Use of Graphics – there are so many things you can do with graphics these days that you would be daft not to take full advantage – is there any doubting who’s stand this is??



  1. Lighting, Video and Music Shops do this all the time, if you chose music appropriate to your brand you are enhancing a visitors experience by connecting with another of their senses.


If you’ve got a great video on your website, make the most of it! Why not project it onto one side of the stand? You could film your best customers being interviewed for a testimonial, much more interesting than being expected to read yet another flyer.


  1. The people make the party – make sure you and your team are on top form, full of positivity and smiles.

We can all remember a time when we’ve been onto a stand or into a shop where no one has even acknowledged us, we probably walked away with nothing more than a feeling of being ignored.

Now think of the time when you were greeted with a friendly smile by someone interested in what you had to say, that’s the feeling you want your visitors to have!
