One thing to remember is that you will by vying for attention among hundreds, if not thousands, of other exhibitors and their trade show booths. It can be a daunting task if you’re not prepared.

To stand out, you should have a trade show booth that is inviting, appealing, and engaging. Being unique and memorable doesn’t hurt either.

You could do worse than take the same approach when setting up your trade show booth.
