Trade Show Displays

Trade shows provide an opportunity for exhibiting various products and services and grabbing the attention of potential clients.

The personality of your company is communicated to the visitors from the first encounter through conversation and personal interaction: What you’re selling is YOU.

Exhibiting in the most eye-catching way requires creativity and skill. Professionals that create trade show booths are equipped with an outstanding sense of spatial design and marketing presence.

Non-verbal communication plays a major role in creating first impressions, and attendees should feel they trust you.

The font and color scheme of the products on display, as well as the nature of the company, play a major role in designing exhibits at trade shows.

Modular display systems usually act as stand-alone banners, and can meet specific display requirements of your company in an artistic way.

Advertising Lag: Decay Effect

  • Advertising tries to expand consumption both by reminding and teaching news about your product.
  • Each new exposure to advertising builds awareness and this awareness will be higher if there have been recent and multiple exposures.
  • Repetition generates & delayed decay effect. The lagged effect of advertising on consumers equals the decline of interest in the given product.
  • As an important element of marketing-mix models, decay effect acts when the typical increase in advertising causes a progressively lesser effect on demand increase. This is advertising saturation.
  • Saturation occurs above a certain threshold level. This is why it’s important to maximise the effect on consumer with few but accurate messages, communicated by your trade show displays.
