3 Tips: Make Your Trade Show Shipping Crate & Booth Stand Out

The goal of taking part in a trade show is to create buzz about your brand and generate leads that turn into solid sales.

With so many companies competing for attention at trade shows, this is certainly no small feat.

Fortunately, you can help your exhibit stand out from the crowd by following three simple tips to make your trade show shipping crate stand out.

Tip #1 Use a custom trade show shipping crate

Often times trade shows are hundreds of miles away from your headquarters making it hard to find replacement pieces for your booth display.

You want to be sure that your display will arrive to the venue damage-free. A custom trade show shipping crate can help with that!

Tip #2 Less stuff is better

A tight custom fit also means, you won’t end up with extra space that you might be tempted to fill with unnecessary “fluff,” and you won’t be left with a bunch of extra components that will be underutilized and distracting to boot.

When it comes to booth design resist the urge to cram too much information into your display. Remember, you only have a few seconds to make an impression on an attendee. Check out Valley Box's Blog 8 Tips to Capture People's Attention with Your Trade Show Booth

Try highlighting just your company name and logo, along with several pieces of pertinent information that you want potential clients or customers to remember. An eye-catching design and clutter-free display will help you reel them in and keep them there.

Tip #3 Enlist top talent

The person elected to man the trade show booth is an important part of the display. Besides having a neat appearance, the person you choose should be able to quickly memorize the design, graphics and information contained in the exhibit in order to give attendees a quick tour.

The person working the trade show booth should also be approachable, attentive, and ultra professional at all times.
