There Is No Substitute for Experience

So many clients attend trade shows and fairs, exhibitions, expos and other events these days because this is the best way of marketing their company, their products and services.

It is of little use to attend these events if you don’t have a great stand or booth. Therefore booth designs are of great importance to every client who wants to make the best impression. These shows and expos are often the best opportunity for many businesses to benefit from visitors, from talking to prospective customers, to market their ideas and services and to ensure their future clients are left with a lasting, positive impression.

If your booth impresses them, you may already be on the right track towards new business. Of course these booths require a lot of thought and work before they are ready to help you further your business ideals at the show. When you consider companies who are known for the great booth designs they come up with, you will most likely agree that all of them have certain traits in common: they are experienced and often offer many years in their industry, they answer all questions confidently and without delay and they react immediately to enquiries.

These are some of the qualities that may help you to have further talks with the company you want to employ for designing your booth. Of course this is only a starting point. Choosing the designer and builder of your booth requires proper research and homework as you often have only one opportunity to come up with the best firm to design and build the booth you need for the show.

The best booth designs will always attract good attention at fairs and shows; therefore you have to give it proper thought and resist the temptation to employ the first company you talk to – or the one that is cheaper than everybody else. Because these shows offer the best opportunity to marketing your business, you should never be tempted to arrive with a sub-standard booth. Make sure you employ the best company to assist you.

Companies with proven track records are the best ones to talk to. They have experience in designing, building, transporting, erecting and dismantling these booths, which sometimes are very big structures. Do not entrust your project to a company that has little, or limited experience.

Booth designs involve various aspects of design that requires proper knowledge of shows and expos, a client’s business and expectations, the client’s budget and financial position and of course, the structure that needs to be built. A good designer will use past knowledge of the industry he works in, the circumstances of his client and great knowledge of current trends in terms of design practices when he takes on a project. He will make sure the client’s best interests are taken into account in terms of the end product.

He will listen to his client’s needs and wishes and incorporate those in his own booth design. Although good designers have great experience and access to the best methods and design software, they will also listen to the clients who understand their own industry and the needs they have in terms of the booth they require.

The ideal situation is one of a designer and client who collaborate on a project and who communicate all the time and who adjust the design when and if necessary. Every client expects to deal with the kind of firm that employs experienced support staff, well qualified designers and engineers, as well as properly trained technicians and builders.

The good designer will ensure that his designs are carried through to the final product and that the booth design he or she is responsible for goes off without glitch.
