Essential Elements of a Successful Trade Show Exhibit

Make sure you have a successful showing at your next trade show.

If you are planning on attending a trade show, you want it to be a success! However, having a good show requires more than simply showing up with an impressive booth design. Here are some of the elements that go into every successful trade show exhibit.

Extensive Planning

First things first, if you want your trade show exhibit to be successful, you will need to do a lot of planning. Not only do you need to organize your budget and determine your goals for attending the trade show, but you also need to train your booth staff, design your exhibit, make traveling arrangements, and much more. To accomplish all this, you need to start planning for trade shows nine to twelve months in advance, and have a checklist to help you keep track of what needs to be done and when.


If you’ve never attended a trade show before, you might not know what to expect. This is why you should attend a show as a spectator before you exhibit at one. While visiting a trade show, scout your competitors and see what they are doing to attract attention. Do they have a flashy booth? Are they giving away good promotional products? Are they offering special deals? Take note of these details and then apply them to your own exhibiting plan.


One of the most important factors in your exhibit’s success is the professionalism and level of engagement offered by your booth staff. Your booth staff should be comprised of employees with exceptional interpersonal skills and who are well-versed on the products or services that your company offers. Offer your booth staff training on how to improve their sales game and make sure you communicate your company’s goals. When your staff is good, trade show visitors will have a positive impression of your company, which could translate into more leads and opportunities.

These are some of the elements that your trade show exhibit requires to be successful.
