2022. Jan. 204,481King One Design

With the advent of the post-epidemic era, many physical activities have shifted to online execution. Coupled with the mature development of technology and Metaverse came out, many companies have invested a lot of money to create exclusive virtual events. Although virtual events are popular, trade shows are still the focus of companies that cannot be ignored. The two-pronged approach strategy is - physical trade shows and virtual events can achieve maximum benefits.

Although many physical trade shows have been cancelled due to the impact of the epidemic, some large-scale trade shows are still held as usual after professional evaluation such as CES 2022. The reason is that trade shows create face-to-face meetings and discussions. Moreover, the instant experience trial is still a form that many customers prefer.

After understanding the importance of trade shows to companies, let us first break down the myths encountered in trade show booth design, and help you quickly cut into the main points of booth design. Next, I will describe the advantages of the six major trade show booths and the matters needing attention in detail, so that companies can make adequate preparations before participating in the trade show, and then select the most suitable booth for design, establish a perfect brand image and increase exposure.

Before setting up an trade show booth, you may wish to understand the myths of booth design, so as to avoid "wanting to be eye-catching and eye-catching" but affecting the professional image of the brand. And it's important to note that attracting customers to your booth is a multi-layered process, not an overnight experience.

1. The appearance of the booth does not have to be fancy and colorful

Yes, the visually fancy and colorful booths will indeed attract attention and drive people to stay. However, if you only focus on surface design, you can only attract "short-term" attention, rather than "entering" the hearts of customers. Therefore, the appearance design of the booth must be combined with the brand image, and then matched with appropriate product display methods, in order to demonstrate the brand spirit and increase the brand's heart share.

2. The product information on the booth is not as detailed as possible

Companies are often worried that their product introduction is incomplete, so they list all the details at one time so that customers can understand the products in detail. Therefore, it is good that the product information is properly displayed, and when customers are further interested, they can provide explanations or more information channels. Of course, it will be even better if you can take into account the display of digital media materials, interactive game design and other product experience display methods when planning your booth!

🤓 Booth Design Tip: You can refer to Bionime's AR product experience at CES 2020, which uses digital media combined with interactive games.

Double deck and Walk-through Booths

The first four items are common exhibition booths, and the last two items are less common, so they are only briefly introduced.


The double deck booth (picture 1), as the name suggests, is to build a second floor on the booth, efficiently use the booth area and expand the benefits. Special attention should be paid to the time schedule for the construction of the double deck booth, so that it can be completed on time. Interested friends can read this article "Exhibition booth design changes too little? The double-storey booth is designed to be the focus of the audience!"


As for the walk-through booth (picture 2), the design and planning are more complicated and rarely seen. The booth site is divided into left and right sides, and the moving lines shuttle between them, similar to the concept of a runway. The booth is divided into two booths, so the booth design and planning are more complicated, and it takes more effort to achieve good marketing benefits.

Q&A Time!

Question 1: If I only want to rent a small booth, should I choose an inline booth or a corner booth?

As mentioned above, the exposure of corner booths is still more than that of inline booths. If possible, it is recommended that companies prefer corner booths. However, due to the small number of corner booths, it is recommended that companies register for the exhibition as soon as possible so that they can choose the most suitable booth.

Question 2: Is the island booth really better?

There are indeed many advantages of island booths, but this is based on the premise of well-designed island booths. A good island booth design takes more time and effort into consideration when considering booth movement, product display techniques, and interactive activity planning. Therefore, most companies with sufficient funds usually hand over the island booth design to the exhibition design in-house team, so as not to neglect the details that should be paid attention to.
