Increase Visitor Interaction at Trade Shows with a Portable Counter

How to go about making sure your trade show booth generates enough traffic to make the investment worthwhile and how best to approach marketing and visibility at the events are two of the biggest considerations for any business that chooses to exhibit at a trade show.

Interacting Over the Counter

Anyone who’s spent time at a trade show knows that professionals are very serious about knowing the latest industry trivia. People at these events are generally hoping to solve a very specific industry problem, network with other professionals on their level, check out the competition or track down a particular service. Your portable counter can help you make the most of these intentions: Use it as a place where booth visitors can show off their industry knowledge! Use it as a competition point where attendees can show off in the hopes of winning prizes, all the while drawing vital attention to your own business.

Different Uses for Portable Counters

You could use a portable display counter anywhere – they’re so fun and useful! Consider the following portable counter uses:

  • At the shopping centre: The hallway of your local shopping centre is the perfect place to display your products and services. It’ll be impossible for customers not to notice your business, but the set-up is efficient, compact and really simple.
  • At the supermarket: Use your portable counter to show customers your product right when they’re primed to spend money – would you like to try our new brand of cheese? Do you like chocolate?
  • At business meetings or presentations: Use a portable lectern display counter and carry on with your presentation. It’s easy, stylish and can feature prints with your desired messages or logos.
  • At exhibitions: For example, if at the end of the exhibition there will be a special event, all visitors can find out what they need to know.


Exhibition Stand Design including a portable counter



Think about the Colour of Your Portable Counter

Because you can choose the graphic that goes on your portable counter, you can also choose the colour that covers most of its body. While you’ll obviously want a colour that compliments your branding rather than clashing with it, that still leaves a fair amount of wiggle room. Think carefully about which colour will work hardest for you. For example…



Linear Lite Portable Counter

A red stand will strike onlookers as energetic, striking and strong.

An orange stand will stand out in a sea of blander designs and indicate value to visitors.

A yellow stand will appear urgent, but can look tacky without careful design.

A green stand will make your visitors think of things that are harmonious, dependable and sustainable.

A blue stand will strike onlookers as pure, comfortable and soothing.

A purple stand will appear elegant, expensive and glamourous.

A pink stand will make visitors think of things that are comforting, calming and cute.

A black stand will have an essence of authority, exclusivity and longevity.
