A sensorial world

Humans are sensorial, and you can expect to see in 2019 new trade booths exploiting not only the traditional sense in marketing like hearing and seeing but all of the five human senses. That’s right, during 2018 you could see a lot of sensorial experiences, taking advantage of textures, smells and tastes to provide a more social and customer centric atmosphere. You can expect to see a lot more of that during 2019.

A creative and custom trade booth design can help exploit your visitors senses to provide a more personal, familiar and unique experience, engaging your brand directly with your potential customers.

Personal comfort

Trade booth banners

Banners are great alternatives to strengthen your trade booth.

Once again, providing a unique experience to a visitor is what you can expect in 2019 trade shows. This includes providing a personal space on your trade booth, like a lounge to relax or a meeting room to close the deal you began while friendly relaxing and sharing at the lounge with your visitors. The longer visitors stay at your booth, more significant are the chances of closing a good deal or catching a new customer.


Taking advantage of the latest tech gadgets will always be a sure bet at trade shows. You can expect a lot of this during 2019, especially interactive technology like touch screens, gaming and of course, virtual reality. VR in a trade booth has become a favorite and will stay like that during 2019. VR provides a unique and creative approach to your products and services. Besides, it always keeps that mystic suspense of what people are experiencing behind those goggles.
