Attending a trade show represents an exciting opportunity for you to showcase your business in front of many promising individuals who might turn into customers or even B2B partners for your organisation. Whether you're a new company trying to show the world what you're all about, or an existing business looking to bolster your reputation, your prospects are bright.

You have high hopes for your next trade show, but everyone else attending the event does too.

The challenge is sticking out from the crowd. You have high hopes for your next trade show, but everyone else attending the event does too, and your job is to distinguish yourself so you do more than just blend in.

Your design strategy will surely play a role in this process.

Promoting your brand with creativity

You might be excited about all the brand activation opportunities at your company's next trade show, but if you want to be truly successful, you might have to get a little bit creative.

According to HubSpot, one way to do this is to be innovative with technology. For example, if you can bolster your marketing material with a campaign on the newest, hippest social media site, you might be able to draw attention from consumers who wouldn't notice you otherwise. Trade shows are a great place for location-based marketing, as there are lots of people with similar interests congregated together. Use this opportunity to your advantage.

Using your booth to engage new customers

What you're really looking for out of a trade show is audience engagement. Yes, your end goal is to make tons of sales, but that's a long-term thing. In the immediate future, you just want to capture people's attention with your trade show booth and hold it.

B2B Commerce Digital noted that to do this, you'll need to enhance your booth with exciting features that will get people buzzing about your brand. For instance, if you're giving away swag like shirts and hats, people will be more likely to remember you. Holding contests, raffles and viral marketing campaigns on social media are all effective strategies as well. Whatever you do, make it memorable.
