You realise how important it is to stand out, but how do you do that amongst hundreds of other businesses there trying to do the exact same thing? We have got you covered with our top five ways to make your business stand out at an exhibition.


It is important to get the measurements correct when putting together your stand, so in the first instance we recommend you contact the organisers to ensure you are fully understanding of the space and height you’re allowed to have with your exhibition stand. When it comes to designing the stand, make sure all the eye catching content is just that, at eye level to your prospects to catch their eye. Another important factor is to make sure that your posters and signs are taking up the vast majority of height and width so that they can be seen across the room.
