How to Make Look Good at Exhibitions Industry Experts Weigh-in by Diana Uy-Chua Furnish Now writer

“A good booth should be a

simple but aesthetic one. It should not be too complex and the layout should be an easy one so that it may facilitate the perception of the customer. The balance that you asked for should be achieved with the help of using a good concept, a good design with the harmony of several factors like colours, lighting, accessories, among others.” - Mr. Zeki Yucel, Chief Judge, MIFF BPA 2016

If they see even one thing of interest within these three seconds then you just bought yourself more time with the client to make potential sales and to gather some contracts,” he said. Easier said than done. How exactly do you make those precious three seconds count when there are several hundreds of other exhibitors competing for the same client?
