If we design a 3x3 stand but chose to book a 6x3 space at another event, can our stand be re-configured to suite the bigger space?

When providing a design brief, what information should I provide? Questions you may like to think about
  • What do you want to get from your trade show booth?
  • How many attendees do you want to attract to your booth?
  • How many leads do you hope to generate?
  • How many products do you want to sell, if you are exhibiting at a business to consumer event?
  • Do you have a main hero product for which you want the booth to be designed around?
  • Are you focusing on promotion or hoping to launch a new product?
  • You can have more than one goal, of course, but the point is that you need to be clear about what your - participation in the trade show is going to achieve.
  • Determine what your ROI would be – if one new customer helps you justify you being at the event, then focus on getting that customer.
What questions should I ask when booking my trade show booth?

Find out everything you can about the available space, including:

  • Location on the trade show floor.
  • Who are the other exhibitors close to the space you want to book .
  • Know who are your direct competitors and where they will be exhibiting.
  • Have a look at the area to determine whether it is a low traffic or high traffic area.
  • Ask about the physical conditions of the booth space:
    • where the overhead lighting is situated, is their natural lighting that you can take advantage of
    • other obstructions such as overhead air conditioning units – which is important if you are looking at a rigged banner over your space.
    • Some event halls have large pillars that may take up a portion of your space which you will have to design your booth around.

If you are unsure, JGD Project managers can take the headache out of finding the best space for your budget and your brand, whether that you are a smaller start up company exhibiting for the first time or multinational that has exhibited 20 times, everyone has a budget in which they need to adhere to.

We can discuss these options with the event organisers and provide solutions for your company / brand.

What is the best way to attract people to my booth?
  • Brand Activation. Create a marketing strategy with strong branding.
  • Have available plenty of give-aways
  • Flood social media with advertisements of your booth and product; including booth number, event dates, location.
  • Approach potential customers with an open and friendly demeanour.
  • Make sure your trade show staff are knowledgeable on the products you are showing
  • Offer to the public something that everyone wants
  • Think outside the box and think creatively
  • Create a trade show only deal
What is the difference between a shell scheme and a custom exhibition booth / stand?

A shell scheme is where you are typically provided with an already carpeted area inside an already existing frame put up by the event organisers. Usually a shell scheme stand is boxed in on 3 sides or occasionally a corner and are generally 3x3 or 6x3 configurations.

A custom built stand is a display that you design and build on raw space (concrete). Your stand is designed from the ground up, and your display contractor is responsible for providing the entire booth package.

A friendly JGD staff member is always available to speak with to help you understand your booth options.

Is there a per square metre rate you can quote for a custom designed and built stand?
All custom stands are designed and built to your specifications and therefore it is difficult to narrow down a square meter price from a basic to an intricate build. However depending on complexity, a custom built stand can vary between $250 - $2000 / sq metre. This is a generalised rate, and obviously many factors may change this.
How long does a stand design and quotation take to provide?
To provide you with a proposal that includes a fully itemised quotation and a set of 3D CAD drawings, you would be looking at around 7 – 10 days.
