Spring is a time of renewal and growth.  It's also a perfect time to review your show strategy for creating one of the best trade show booths for 2017. One sure-fire way to spotlight your brand and increase traffic to your trade show booth is to add a hanging fabric structure.  Also consider the benefits of expanding your booth size or selecting new flooring. If you didn't budget for it this quarter, renting is always an option.

Convergent Dental's 20' x 20' exhibit with hanging fabric structure commanded a strong presence on the trade show floor during the Greater NY Dental Meeting held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. Increasing the footprint of the exhibit and adding new flooring to support its interactive workstations further enhanced the experience for visitors to the booth. Creators of Solea, the first CO2 dental laser cleared by the FDA for hard and soft tissue dentistry, Convergent Dental uses interactive technology and demo stations in its trade show booth to educate professionals about its product's capabilities. Large monitors display educational videos that engage and retain booth visitors waiting their turn to sit at one of the hands-on demo stations.
