Preferred Stand Locations in a Trade Fair
Certain locations are to be preferred because of their visibility, which turns out to be much better. These locations will be more exposed to passing crowds and therefore more likely to make sales. It’s about:
- From the central aisle, it is the most frequented, however it is difficult to get a seat there if you are not a major exhibitor or a former exhibitor,
- At the crossroads of the show, they reach more audiences and generate a flow of visitors,
- Near the toilets, because it is a visible passageway where there is always traffic,
- The area around the bar, this is a transient area and friendly, despite the constant noise,
- Next to a big brand, if your industry is the same: however, be careful with the configuration of this leader, because it can happen that your location is obscured by one of the partitions of their booth.
Note: if your means allow it, another visibility solution is to disseminate other small stands in the show. You will not always have the choice of your stand, but to maximize your chances, anticipate your reservation. The more stands still available, the more you are entitled to demand a prime location from the organizer.
