From the second a customer walks into your shop, you want to engage with them and make them feel that your store is a place where they would enjoy spending time.
That first impression is essential. And you don’t have long to make it.
You stand on a dark stage. The sound of the audience behind the curtain is barley audible due to the din of your own rapid breathing and the blood pounding past your ears. The curtain opens and light floods your eyes. Applause bursts from the crowd then falls away. Someone coughs. Anxiety washes over you, so you do the only thing you can think of, the one thing you have been preparing the past months to do: you say your line.
Contemporary venues are built with every modern convenience in mind. They have audio speakers positioned throughout, HD screens for videos or presentations, and the necessary cords and equipment to connect any device.

Exhibiting at a trade show combines the stress of moving with airline travel and a job performance evaluation.
That’s why the connection you form with your exhibit house becomes an extremely important relationship. After all, your exhibit house assists you in getting ready for some of the most important events of your year, helps you pack and unpack your belongings, and is there to lend a hand when things go wrong.
