When industry leaders host trade shows, conferences, expos, etc. they do their best to scout for exhibitors to display their products and services. One thing they fail to do in their conference planning is suggest trade show booths that aren’t boring and show them what may attract visitors. Having an appealing trade show booth will only help sales and our team at The Event Planner Expo did a bit of research to help exhibitors come up with the most exciting and new concepts for trade show booths.

They displayed a standee of a cow that could be used as a branded photo op where attendees can stop to take a picture, and with any luck, they’ll share it out on social media which means it’s a marketing op too.

Meeting Room Trade Show Booth

Now here’s a conference planning idea that is sure to grab the attendees’ attention! IOandDesign did an excellent job with designing a trade show booth that also translates into a meeting space.
