5 Key Trade Show Stand Tips

5 Key Trade Show Stand Tips

 There is little doubt that face-to-face engagement is the number one tool in the marketing arsenal. Despite the ever-increasing trends for digital strategies, engagement through trade shows and roadshows are a leading force behind B2B growth.

With the correct planning and an enthusiastic team, these opportunities produce targeted business leads, build lasting customer relationships and dramatically increase brand awareness.

As professional exhibition stands designers and builders with over 20 years’ experience, we have learnt a thing or two along the way. Here are our 5 most important tips for conducting a successful trade show exhibition.

1. Choose your space wisely

Before booking your stand think about how you will use the space. How much display space you will need for demonstrations or promotional material? This will affect the size of stand you will need.

Also, consider the high traffic areas at the event. For example, stands next to amenities or entry points often benefit from the surrounding traffic. You may pay a premium for stand space near these areas but stand positioning is important. Book your stand space or booth with your soundings in mind.

Do your research, book early and give yourself the maximum time to prepare your space.

2. Stand out

Trade shows are an opportunity to reach out to your customers and your exhibition stand reflects your brand. Make an impact with dynamic graphics and a bold stand design.

A great trade show stand creates a targeted buzz and is built with an understanding of the customer. The little touches go a long way so furniture, lighting, digital display screens and hospitality should also be considered as part of your budget.

First impressions count so be sure to take the most approachable and confident members of your team.

3.Promote your event

Promoting a company’s presence at a trade show or event is a must. Start by announcing your attendance through the company website and blog. A current and potential client should be contacted and made aware of the event through emails and social media but don’t forget to pick up the phone.

4.Walk the floor

Go into your event with clear objectives and be prepared to take control. Approach people and start the conversation.

Talk to everyone even if you don’t sense a sale. A trade show event can be as much about building a reputation as it is about making sales. A handshake can go a long way.

5.Review and improve

It’s important to remember that the work doesn’t stop when the event finishes. Reviewing your success is an important part of the process. Identifying areas to improve and follow up on new leads while they are still hot.

There are times when an exhibition trailer can be used outside of exhibitions and Arriva North East certainly found this to be useful recently. Instead of hiring a hotel conference facility for some training meetings, Arriva used a 9m Mobex trailer based in their yards instead as Gavin from the company explains...


"The trailer that they have provided us with for our two weeks of Arri-VaVaVoom Engineering Roadshows, has given us the ideal platform with which to run our engineering engagement forums easily and effectively within our normal working environment, this has given us the ability not only to talk about real life issues, but also then to walk out into our workshops and understand the issues first hand.

The unit itself has been ideal to host the optimum group size of 15 - 20 people for the day in comfort and in a pleasant and informal atmosphere. The service provided by Mobex has also been efficient and unobtrusive throughout making the whole process easy to manage and operate. We have already had a lot of positive feedback from the engineers themselves noting that the roadshow format is much preferred to our previous approach where we ran such events in hotel conference facilities and as such we will be looking to continue the roadshow format in future."

Mobex wins contract with The Jockey Club



Mobex has recently been awarded a 3-year contract to supply The Jockey Club at Cheltenham Racecourse with a shopping mall shell scheme.


Allan Plant, Managing Director of Mobex, says “We have been increasing our presence in the indoor stand market over the past few years by providing quality cost effective solutions to clients, the client recommendation to The Jockey Club to provide them with something different to take their shopping stands to a more prestigious level in keeping with the quality of the event. Our aim was to give it a feel more suitable for Cheltenham Racecourse, the home of the Cheltenham Gold Cup.


We were able to provide bespoke build stands in various sizes and layouts, complete with printed fascia boards, lighting and electrical points. Different number of stands would be required from 8 to 64 dependent on the race meeting”


The initial timescale from award of the contract to first race meeting was only 4 weeks but Mobex designed, built and installed all the stands required on time and within budget.


Historically Mobex has been best known for providing exhibition trailers for both hire and build for clients and events across the UK and Ireland, but are now quickly establishing a solid stable of clients for internal exhibition stand design and build, making them an all-round provider of event solutions.


Carey Buckler, Regional Partnership Manager at Cheltenham Racecourse said ‘We have worked with Mobex over the last year to improve the shopping experience at Cheltenham Racecourse for both the Exhibitor and the racegoers. We are delighted with the results that Mobex have delivered, always in friendly and effective way.’



The #shoppingatcheltenham stands can be seen at all Cheltenham race meetings including The Cheltenham Festival taking place in March each year, where around 250,000 pass through the gates of the Gloucestershire course over the four days.

Benefits Of Using A Mobile Exhibition Trailer

Benefits Of Using A Mobile Exhibition Trailer

Promoting a new service or a new product needs to be intensive. Considering how much time and money and effort you had to invest to get these items become a reality, it is only right that you take the right steps to get the results that you were hoping to get. See if you are indeed looking at the right ways on how you are supposed to get these items promoted.

What you are hoping to get this time is a way to promote these items the less usual way. You have been too used to seeing promotions that are considered to be a little too much on the generic side and you want to do something to help change that. A number of ideas may be available for you these days. For instance you can choose to try out the mobile exhibition trailer.

One of the many benefits that you can get out of using his kind of promotion is the fact that you can easily target the kind of people that you would want to focus your campaigns for. Instead of having to set a venue where you would expect these audiences to flock and attend, you can bring things to where they are. All you need to do is travel to where the demographics you have chosen are and hold the actual event there instead.

Choose the right vehicles for this purpose. You would need to make sure that you have reviewed all the options you have as far as these kinds of units are involved. Most firms these days would opt for those really huge trailers to do their promotions. After all, the bigger in size they are, the easier they will be to get noticed. Then, having them designed is another part of the task that you have to do too.

Have the vehicle appropriately designed. You need to come up with an apt look to make sure that you are able to get the reasons behind your interest towards having the place to actually look good. You need assurance that what you are getting this time is something that you should fit the kind of products or the specific type of service that you’re trying to get promoted.

Make sure to choose where you would want these events to take place too. A good way for you to really make the most of the mobility of these trailers is to ascertain first where your target demographics tend to be most densely located at, then, all you need to do is choose a place where you can have the event held. This way, you can maximize the demographics as best as you can.

Make sure to take note of the regulations that you are supposed to follow if you are to go ahead and push through with these campaigns. Remember that different states may have different ways and means on how they would expect these kinds of events to be handled. Make sure to gather the necessary papers and permits to avoid legal issues later on.

Consulting the experts may not be a bad idea. Take note of the things that the experts have to say if you want to be sure that you are able to get the most benefits out of putting up these campaigns. Call those who have mastered the art of promotion the mobile way and see what it is that they may be able to contribute to you.
