Displays that have a good visual impact are important tools in trade shows, as they can draw in and impress customers. There are several types of displays available. You can opt for displays depending on the products you want to showcase, your budget, and the nature of your business. Fabric displays are becoming increasingly popular at trade shows, because they have several advantages over other types of displays.
Fabric displays are more economical than many of the other display types. Panels of these displays can be easily replaced. You are likely to incur less expense with these displays than if the panels were made of plastic or laminate. Therefore, if needed, you can have new displays made for every trade show. Most companies tend to use tension fabric for these displays. This fabric is durable and has a long life. It can be washed and pressed regularly, keeping your display looking new.
These displays are easy to customize. The display size can be increased by joining two or more fabrics by using connectors. It can be stretched, layered and twisted to catch the eye of the customer. It can also create a 3D effect. A fabric display can be used as a central piece or be displayed as part of a series. If it is large, it can be used as a backdrop for your trade show booth.

Display exhibits like fabric displays and pop-up displays play an important role in a trade exhibition. Apart from these you also need to have personnel at your stall who can explain what is being displayed to the visitors. If the staff employed at your trade booth is not trained well in handling customers, then all your investment on sourcing latest display equipment is wasted.
Training your staff
Experienced people who have previously been part of successful trade shows can train your booth staff on the various subjects like marketing strategies, sales skills and customer relations. You can also hold demonstrations for the staff about the advantages of your products.
The primary goal of any business is to sell its products or services. The basics of marketing at a trade show are similar to any other method like online and direct marketing. Train your staff to scour potential clients from the visitors to your stall. You can also invite your existing customers to the stall to encourage repeat sales.
Practicing good etiquette
At your trade booth stall, ask your staff not to smoke, drink or gossip among each other as it creates a negative impression in the minds of the potential customers. Be warm and friendly in your approach to avoid intimidating visitors. Do not turn down any visitor to your trade stall as they can be potential clients. Make sure there is a staff member who is always present at the booth to respond to visitor queries. Keep manuals, pens, brochures of products etc in sufficient quantities. You can also train the professionals at your booth on the display exhibits at your stall like fabric displays, pop up displays etc so that they can easily deal with any problems that they may face with the display.
