    Fundamental Booth Display Tips

    Learn the Fundamentals of a Well-Designed Booth Display  View IHA’s newly developed document that provides tips on creating a well-designed booth display. Fundamentals include tips on lighting, props, color, graphics, fixtures and product placement.  These display tips are described based on exhibitors within the Show:

    • First-time exhibitors on a tighter budget.
    • Seasoned exhibitors who are returning and wish to heighten the look of their booth beyond the service offered through the Show’s vendors.
    • Charter exhibitors who may have the financial wherewithal and are searching for both artistic and increased sales inspirations.

    • Together with the Show’s Exhibitor Services Manual (ESM), these tips will help in heightening the look of your presentation within your trade show booth. For full details on Fundamental Booth Display Tips, please see below.
