Trade shows are an essential part of product promotion, and with the introduction of modern technology, these shows have become even more popular. To attract the attention of casual onlookers and potential buyers to their booth showcasing products and services, marketers use a wide variety of display materials like fabric tradeshow displays and pop up backdrops around their stalls, along with tabletop banners and briefcase displays decorated on tables. According to marketing experts, display materials used in trade shows should be simple and clean with eye-catching content.
Banner designers have many standard layouts that are proven to attract more attention. So, remember to choose the right design layout with high-resolution images to be displayed on your banner. Your slogan and logo with the right complementary colors can becomes the show stopper of the trade show and get a ton more eyes on your business.
- Using the right colors
While it makes sense to use a color palette that is close to your corporate image, the best results can be achieved with the use of contrasting colors. If you are using a medley of colors on opposite sides of the color spectrum try to use impactful tones that are effective instead of being overwhelming. For instance, fluorescent colors that are harsh on the eyes won’t get the reaction you hope for.
- Selecting suitable graphics
Simple and imaginative images with bold slogans are effective in creating memorable visuals for your trade show stall. Ensure that you invest in an effective banner design and create customized graphics that can be used across all your tradeshow banners. It may be tempting to get maximum value out of fabric tradeshow banners that are used in strategic locations around the venue by loading it with artwork, but multiple images can dilute the visual impact of the banner. As pictures and graphics speak more effectively than words, it is critical to use the right images on the banners.
- Short and sweet
When banners are designed for display at trade shows, their main function is to grab the attention of people walking into the exhibition and also of other participants at the trade show. Instead of complex long descriptive sentences, use simple bullet points that act like “call to action” buttons in encouraging viewers to approach the stall to learn more about your brand and products.
