I was invited to have a booth at the Team National Grand Convention in Atlanta for 3 days (Sept. 2011). Never having done a trade booth, I had no idea where to start. I had been to many apparel and accessory shows. That is not what I needed…I needed core info – how much inventory do I take, what is the most inviting setup, how should I package sales, do I offer a drawing for a prize??? So many questions. I searched google, pininterest, blogs….everywhere for info to answer my questions.
Yes, I did need to go a drawing for a prize. Yes, I should put purchases in a cute bag. Yes, I should open the space up for attendees to walk in and feel comfortable. Yet, I still not know what would be the best setup to represent www.shophawaiiansun.com …I decided to set the booth up just like a boutique. Turns out…I had a great setup!!!! I had amazing feedback and sold tons of stuff. Made contacts and met some truly amazing people!!!! I truly had the best time of my life interacting with people all over the US. Here are more pics of the booth…maybe these pics can help someone else find a setup that is right for their company.
