Using Banners and other Decorative Touches
Many companies have a banner they put on display either on the wall behind the booth or hang off the front of their table. Coupling this with a cloth that has your company logo on it will help prevent everyone from asking what your company is or does, unless that is part of your strategy. If you don't have either of these, then purchasing a plain cloth to cover your table is a good option. You can choose to buy something with color or stick to something light or white that will work year round and not clash with your product.
Another method when it comes to how to display items at a trade show is to make sure they look attractive. One method is to create risers on your table to put your items on. Height ads interest to your display. A simple method to create risers or height is to take the boxes your product comes packaged in and put them under the cloth. This gives height without having to carry extra supplies with you.
If you have some seasonal items that you want to highlight, try displaying these in a basket. The basket could go on the riser or directly on the table. Make the basket interesting by using some Easter grass or ribbons. You will need something that draws people in and ask questions. This is a great place to dress up your table with some colors that pop out and will draw attention to customers walking by your booth.
Depending on the type of show and the products you are selling, you may want to add some extra decorative touches on your table. For instance, if it is a spring show, you may want to add a vase of flowers (silk or real) to your table or if its fall, you might add some orange/brownish leaves to the table. This is a great way to easily dress up your table and add some color.
