  • Does 2020 mean a trade show is on the docket for your business? If you’re preparing for the upcoming trade show season, you need to start planning early. It’s best to start your preparations about six months before the event, and tackle several steps along the way. Looking for trade show display products or fabric? Contact our pro team at FLS Banners, we would be happy to help you get the custom printed trade show products you need. With this handy trade show checklist, you can be confident that you are well prepared for your next event.

    Start Here: Planning 6 Months Out

    planning-trade-showAt the six month mark, you are ready to start planning your event. Here are the steps to take about six months before your event.

    1. Define your goal

      First, determine what you want to accomplish with your trade show. Decide three key objectives that you want to accomplish. These will be unique to your business.

    2. Set the budget

      Next, decide how much you are willing to spend to reach those goals. This will depend on the current state of your business, and it will drive the rest of your trade show preparation checklist, so be specific. Make sure you leave room for necessary promotional materials and booth materials.

    3. Book the show

      If you don’t already have a trade show venue, now is the time to start looking. 
      If you will have to travel distance to the show, check with the show website for deals on hotels and flights. Today many tradeshows book blocks of rooms and offer discount prices for booking through the show website. Also, check to see if there are any special requirements for getting your display into the show. If you are shipping directly to the show, your booth may have to arrive by a specific date to avoid extra fees.

    4. Start planning your booth

      Between five and six months before your first trade show, pull out your checklist for the exhibition booth. This gives you time to order tablecloths, backdrop displays, marketing materials, and other supplies to make your event successful. You will want to review your current display and make sure your key product/service is featured on at least one focal point in the booth. This is a great way to start a conversation with a current client and to draw prospects in.

    5. Order promotional items.

      About four months before the first trade show, put in your order for your promotional items, especially if you will be sending fliers or other notifications about your participation in the event. FLS Banners works with customers to deliver within even the shortest of deadlines. 
      Here are a few of our most popular items:

    6. Arrange travel

      As soon as you know the event date, start shopping for airline tickets or make other travel arrangements. If you are carrying your display with you sure to find out when setup starts. Many of our products require minimal setup time; however, you always want to leave yourself plenty of time to account for any unknowns. The worst thing that can happen is you finish early and you can spend the afternoon at the pool.

    7. Create a packing checklist.

      Determine the things you are going to need for every trade show, and make a written trade show booth checklist. Don’t forget things like first aid supplies, tape, and extension cords.

    Getting Closer: One Month to 2 Weeks Out

    order-trade-show-suppliesAs the trade show gets closer, your trade show planning checklist gets busier. Here are some things to put on your “to do” list as you move within two weeks of the event.

    1. Double-check your trade show checklist

      Pull it out and make sure there aren’t any things you have overlooked.

    2. Check your trade show booth materials

      Make sure everything is in good working order and does not need to be repaired. Missing anything? Reach out to FLS Banners and we can get you the printed table covers or banners ASAP.

    3. Start staff training

      Talk with the people who will be manning your booth to ensure they are aware of what their objectives are.

    4. Order printed literature

      It takes about a week to have promotional materials printed locally, so order early so you have time to make changes, if needed.

    5. Prepare lead packets

      Have packets of information to hand to leads at the trade show.

      Almost Time: 1 Week to the Day Before

      Pack your bag
      Pull out the trade show planning checklist you made earlier, and make sure all of the items are packed inside a bag.

    6. Prepare a document packet.

      You will want contact information for local vendors, staff that will be coming with you and staying behind, and contact information for your accommodations and the venue itself. If you need art or files to print more promotional materials if you run out, add this to your document packet. Have both digital and paper options with you.

    7. Send your trade show materials ahead

      If you aren’t bringing you trade show materials with you personally, send them ahead and verify their arrival.

    8. Make a checklist for trade show exhibitors.

      If you are sending someone else to do the trade show, make sure they are armed with a trade show booth checklist that has all of the details they will need to set up, display, and take down your trade show materials.

    Showtime: The Day Of

    1. trade-show-event Arrive at the venue early.

      Make sure you have plenty of time to set up your booth. You may run into unexpected problems, like needing a longer extension cord, so do not cut yourself short on time. Plan for traffic and getting lost if you are showing at a new venue.

    2. Consult the trade show setup checklist.

      This will help ensure you do not forget a critical component of your booth setup and design.

    3. Show your stuff.

      You’ve spent the last six months planning. Now’s your time to shine. Since you used a checklist for trade show exhibitors, you will be well prepared to do your best.

    Follow-Up: After the Show

    1. Pack things up carefully.

      When the show is done, take the time to pack carefully so you do not damage your trade show materials and booth supplies.

    2. Follow up.

      Gather the information from the leads you made. Plan your follow up, whether it is phone calls, emails, or letters. If you have a sales team, pass those leads on to the sales team to start the follow-up process.

    3. Evaluate your costs.

      Add up what you spent and compare it to the budget you set. Was your budget accurate? Were there areas you could save money? How could you improve for future trade shows?

    4. Evaluate your trade show checklist.

      Was there something missing from your trade show exhibitor checklist? Did you forget to pack something that should be added to your checklist for exhibition booths? What mistakes could have been avoided with better planning? Add to or take away from your trade show planning checklist as needed.

    Prepare for Your Trade Show Booth with the Right Products

  • feather-flags-indoor-useCustom feather flags have many uses outdoors. They’re often seen lining festivals, alongside car dealerships, or in front of stores, highlighting an important sale or other event. Yet that’s just one use of feather flags. Feather flags work well for indoor events as well. They create an eye-catching display that will draw attention to an area of a facility. Whether you are setting up for a trade show or are hoping to draw attention to a particular area of your business, like a sale area or a product you are trying to promote, custom feather flags work quite well for indoor purposes. FLS Banners has several high-quality, custom printed feather banners and flags for your consideration, and all are excellent choices for indoor use.

    Why Use Feather Flags Indoors?

    Feather flags have many purposes inside your business or at an indoor event. Just as when used outdoors, they draw attention exactly where it is needed. These flags stand above the heads of most guests or customers, so they are easily seen from anywhere in the building.

    Each flag is made with a premium fabric that is designed to be long-lasting and can withstand wet and windy conditions. The vibrant custom printing and stand-out frame design means that feather flags will be right at home either outside or indoors.

    Custom feather flags tell visitors that there’s something interesting to see or experience in a particular area of a building. If you’re in a convention or trade show, they draw the eyes of guests to your booth instead of the competition. In your own building, they can showcase an area where you want to get more foot traffic.

    Why should you use feather flags indoors? They are an eye-catching option that’s both affordable and simple to create. They are reusable, so you can use them again and again for one trade show and then the next. They are also simple to put up and take down.

    Indoor Versus Outdoor Use of Feather Banners and Flags

    Indoor use and outdoor use of fabric feather banners are typically for the same reason. The goal is to draw attention to something, and the flags do that very well. However, certain features of custom feather flags from FLS Banners make them work better than other brands when used indoors.

    For example, portability is an important feature when using these indoors. Our custom feather banners are lightweight and have lighter stand options, so they are easy to move from spot to spot. Also, flag stands with arms that keep the flag stretched tight, so it is noticeable with or without wind, are importation when using the flag indoors. You need to ensure that the flag is always upright and visible, and can’t rely on wind to keep it up. We have several fabric banner options that feature this design.

    Indoor Mounts for Feather Banners

    When using feather banners and flags indoors, you won’t have access to the ground to put a stake into, so you need a different mount to keep the flag upright. Since indoor environments don’t have wind to deal with, you don’t need to anchor the flags to the ground, but you do need to use something to ensure they don’t tip over. The two best options for indoor feather flag mounts are x-stands and water bases.

    X-stands provide a stable surface with a crossed design that is just enough to balance the flag and keep it in place. These are easy to move should you need to move your display to another part of the facility. Add an optional water bag that wraps around the x-base for extra weight and stability. This makes the x-base more flexible for both indoor and outdoor use.

    Water bases are square bases filled with water to keep the flag in place and upright. They work both indoors and outdoors, and are a bit more difficult to move than an x-base. These are ideal in high traffic areas where the flags may get bumped, but when you don’t need to move the flag very often.

    If you’re unsure which type of base is right for you, FLS Banners can help. Either one will be a great option for indoor use, and the choice will depend largely on how often you need to move the flag.

    Cooler weather may be coming, which means fewer outdoor events, but you can still benefit from custom feather flags. Reach out to the team at FLS Banners today to get started on your custom feather flag kit. We have made the design process simple, and ship lightning fast, so you can have your new feather flag banner order in no time. Contact us today to start the process.

  • small business trade show planningFor many small businesses, trade shows are a great way to get your name out there into the community and show people what you have to offer. Yet trade show costs can add up quickly, and you need to make sure you are doing everything to manage those costs efficiently for your business. As a small business, you must leverage the trade show circuit well in order to get a profit for the time and money you invest. Here are some tips to help today’s small business owners jump in to the trade show world with success.

    Budget and Plan Ahead

    It’s easy to overspend on trade shows, so a budget is the first step in the process. You do need to spend some money to make these shows successful. From the promotional products you hand out to the marketing materials on your display, not to mention the fees to rent the booth, there will be some money involved, but you need to determine how much is reasonable to spend before you start.

    Next, determine what your goals are. This will help you determine if your trade show has been successful. Goals may include:

    • Gaining new leads
    • Increasing brand recognition
    • Networking
    • Sales


    Make the exhibit goals measurable, so you can evaluate your success after the event.

    Decide where you will attend the trade show that is relevant to your industry. Choose a location that is likely to attract the partner or customer who will help you meet your goal. Since you will pay to be in the trade show, location is an important factor.
    Most importantly, plan ahead. Plan travel dates, book hotel rooms, and start planning the logistics of the show well ahead of time. This will ensure you have ample time to get all the details in place and give your staff time to prepare themselves as well.

    Start Marketing Now

    As soon as you know your location and dates, start marketing. Hit your social media pages with exciting posts about your upcoming event schedule. The more people in the local area that hear about the show, the better your attendance will be. Consider putting out incentives to invite people to visit your booth. Create a teaser video that will showcase some of the stuff you’ll have available.

    As part of your pre-show marketing, order your promotional items that both showcase your company's brand and leave a good first impression. You need to have some good stuff to give away in order to entice people to visit your booth. Choose items that will create a good impression of your business, but remember to keep your marketing budget in mind too.

    Build a Memorable Trade Show Booth

    Now it’s time to start planning for your exhibit booth. A successful trade show needs the right exhibit design to draw people in. This can be hard for first-time exhibitors who are not sure what will make people stop and take a closer look, but try to think like a visitor or attendee who is coming to the show. What would make you stop and look more closely at an exhibit space, rather than going to look at other exhibitors instead?

    First, you will need trade show tablecloths. Choose tablecloths branded with your logo or name. Then, consider banners that will draw attention. Finally, add the backdrops, displays, posters, and technology to your tables that will give people something to look at and read when they get to your booth.

    Depth is an important factor in exhibit design. You need several layers of display items that will draw people to your booth, then you need promotional items to encourage them to stay. Don’t neglect the height as well. With banners and backdrops, you can make your booth stand out by being taller than the competition.

    Videos and slideshows, as long as they are short, can also be effective at keeping people at your booth once they arrive. Use a bright, but not overpowering, color scheme. Consider adding a presentation board that showcases the benefit of your product or service. Use plenty of pictures throughout your booth design, because many people will not stop to read but will take in images. Above all, make sure your logo and company name are central to the overall design.

    If you are looking for help creating your trade show booth, you need the right supplier of trade show booth materials. FLS Banners offers high-quality, custom trade show booth materials at affordable prices with fast shipping. From banners to tablecloths, all of these items can be fully branded with your logo and design.

  • trade-show-eventWhether it’s your first trade show or your fiftieth, when a trade show is pending, every exhibitor needs to be properly prepared. While the packing process does get easier as you do more and more trade shows, it’s still helpful to have a handy trade show checklist on hand to tap into as you prepare. Here is a closer look at what you will need in preparation for an upcoming trade show and improve your marketing prowess.

    Essential Items for the Event

    As you prepare for the event itself, these are the items you will need to have on hand:

    • Business cards – You need more than you think. Everyone who walks by your booth will want to grab one, and you may misplace a box or two in the flurry of events. Running out means missed marketing opportunities with attendees.

    • Display items – It almost goes without saying, but make sure you have your booth items on hand, like your posters and banners, so you can set up your display. Don’t forget the electronics and TV screens you may need to attract attendees.

    • Trade Show Displays - These are absolutely essential to showcase your brand and get noticed!

    • Trade Show Tablecloths - Don't leave a bare table out on the show floor, tablecovers are a must for bringing your booth together.

    • Presentation media – Don’t forget the media you need to make your booth presentation effective!

    • Writing utensils – Pens and pencils tend to disappear, so have a large stash.

    • Stapler and staples – From handing out stacks of pamphlets to last minute repairs to something on your display, it’s always great to have one on hand.

    • Markers – Have plenty of permanent markers on hand that you can use for everything from removing typos to making a quick promotional poster.

    • Tape – Tape of all types is helpful to stick things to your booth display, make emergency repairs, or tape down wayward cords to avoid tripping hazards.

    • Trade show tablecloths – Have a variety of sizes of your trade show tablecloths so you can fit whatever size table you have to work with in your booth.

    • Extension cords – For lighting and electronics, you’ll need to be able to plug in, and the plug may not be close to you.

    • Scissors – When you need them, nothing else will do, so have a few pairs of scissors in your kit.

    • Miscellaneous office supplies – Pack sticky notes, paper clips, clipboards, and loose paper, so you have the supplies on hand when you need them.

    • Power strip – If you arrive and find that you only have one outlet available to you, a power strip will be invaluable.

    • Promotional items – T-shirts, stress balls, cups, pencils, clips, and any other branded item that you’re planning to give away needs to end up in your bins as you prepare for the trade show.

    • Bags – You will want trash bags, zip-top baggies, and shopping bags, preferably branded shopping bags, to complete your trade show supplies.


    Personal Comfort and Care

    Make sure you take care of your own needs, too. Here are some personal care and comfort items any exhibitor may wish to have on hand.

    • Water bottle – Trade shows are hot work. Even indoor trade shows require many hours on your feet talking to people. Bring plenty of water or an empty water bottle you can fill.

    • Snacks – You may not get a convenient lunch break, so have some healthy, protein-based snacks available.

    • Comfortable shoes – This is not the time to pull out the stilettos. Focus on comfort, because you’ll be on your feet most of the day.

    • Breath mints – Mints are better than gum, which makes you look unprofessional, but have something to take care of bad breath issues.

    • Sunscreen – For outdoor events, make sure you’re properly protected.


    Just in Case

    Emergencies happen. Make sure you are prepared for anything that can occur with these extra supplies.

    • First aid kit – Bandages, OTC medications, and disinfectant will help for any problems that arise during the trade show.

    • Safety pins – Don’t let a wardrobe malfunction get you down! You can also use safety pins to pin trade show tablecloths and banners that aren’t cooperating as you wish.

    • Zip ties – Are your wires and cords running every which way? Zip tie them in place!

    • Photos – Take pictures of your assembled booth. That way, you can look at pictures easily to see where each item belongs as you set up.

    • Extra tablecloths – When an event attendee spills their coffee all over your white tablecloth, have a spare on hand to ensure you can keep presenting well.

    • Paper copies – Have paper copies of every form you’re using, even if you plan to fill out forms digitally. Paper copies mean you can continue to collect information, even if your technology fails you.

    • Detergent pen – Small spills and stains on both tablecloths and clothing can be addressed with detergent pens.

    • Superglue – Superglue can fix most potential problems!

    Why Should I Attend a Trade Show Event?

    How do I Choose the Best Trade Show Booth for My Business?

    Choosing the right booth depends on your marketing strategies and goals. However, your booth exhibit should be optimized to attract attention and send a clear branded message to trade show attendees what kind of business you represent.

    With a little research, you can discover what kind of events your customer base are most likely to attend, and you can create an exhibit that tells a story to that audience.

    trade-show-eventTrade shows offer a fantastic opportunity to move past the typical barriers inherent in marketing and get connected with the right customers. A well-prepared trade show booth can greatly increase your networking success. Whether you are a veteran or a brand new to the trade show scene, planning for the big event can be a daunting task. There are a number of steps to take before, during, and after your trade show. Here is a helpful checklist of tips and ideas to help you plan for your next trade show event.

    Pre-Trade Show Checklist

    1. Let's start with the basics. If you already know what your goals are for your trip and the message of your exhibit, next take a look at creating a vendor presentation for your booth. This can be optional but highly recommended.

    2. Next, pick your exhibitor space. Exhibit spaces usually go quickly, so it's best to act early and pick a spot that will fit your booth and offer the most exposure before it's taken. The best exhibiting spaces are usually near the front entrance of the trade show. If you can't secure a space near the front, at the very least find a corner or the end of the aisle to get maximum exposure.

    3. Once you have a spot picked out, it's time to design your trade show booth. There are many types of promotional materials available; from trade show banners, flags, table covers, and other trade show displays, really your budget and event space is the limit. FLS Banners offers convenient trade show display kits perfect for creating a great-looking booth that saves you time and money putting one together.

    4. Now it's time to create your trade show banners, booth materials, handouts, and other promotional products. This part of the process can take some time to prepare. Again, earlier is a good idea! FLS Banners offers a three-day proofing process and always priority shipping. Once you have submitted your order and graphics or logo via our easy online process, your trade show booth materials will be ready in no time!

    5. What else will you need printed or prepped before the big event? If you have fliers, pamphlets, stickers, or other kinds of handouts, you should get those ordered too. Will you be hosting a giveaway? Make sure prizes are in order.

    6. Make travel arrangements to and from the trade show for all staff that will be going. Everything from plane tickets, hotel rooms, transportation, and more will be booked quickly. Make sure you have arrangements prepared well in advance.

    7. Get the word out about your upcoming trade show event. Let current and potential customers know what event you will be at, where they can find you, and invite them to come. Using your email marketing list or social media accounts are good ways to do so.

    8. Get packing! Even if your booth materials have yet to arrive, it's always good to get a head start on putting together the essential supplies. Business cards zip-ties scissors First-Aid pens and highlighters paper clips multi-tool rubber bands stapler extension cords and surge protectors tape post-it notes comfortable shoes

    During the Show Checklist

    Depending on your goals for the trade show event, you may have a certain number of new leads you would like to gather or industry leaders you would like to network with. It often helps to put these goals on paper for you and your team. Be sure to:

    1. Be active. Keep moving, engage attendees, and promote positive body language. Your actions will stir engagement and attract more potential leads. Get out on the floor and make some new friends!

    2. Ask questions. Instigate the conversation with a question. By sparking genuine conversation, most attendees will be willing to discuss what you do.

    3. Be ready to demonstrate your product or service from memory. The more prepared you are, the more confidence you will generate, and the more you will impact a potential lead.

    4. Take lots of notes and be a good listener. At an average trade show, you will interact with hundreds of attendees. Most likely, you won't remember every detail of every conversation so it helps to take notes. Write down names, companies, titles, and other important details of each promising interaction. Take names and contact information as much as you hand out yours.

    5. Stay active on social media during the event. Make sure you are keeping your followers up-to-date on the event and what your team is doing.

    Post-Trade Show Checklist

    1. Revisit your notes and follow up. Who did you talk to? What did you learn? While the information is still fresh, send your new contacts a brief email to reconnect after the event. Make sure your follow up is prompt. You could sweeten the deal by extending special pricing, free trials, free samples, or other strategy to encourage a response.

    2. Apply what you learned. Go over your feedback surveys and recall verbal feedback you received during the event. Make sure you implement the feedback for your next trade show event. As some may argue, a trade show is only as good as you take home from it.

    With preparation and a little skill, you can make yours a success by connecting with your audience and learning from your experience. Are you ready for the big event? Contact FLS Banners and order your trade show display materials today!

    When creating a memorable trade show booth, there are several factors to consider. Being creative with your design, choosing the right promotional products, and presenting your brand message are all important aspects in having a successful trade show. With a few ideas for your booth, you could attract more attendees than before to your exhibit.

    What makes a booth stand out at a trade show? There are rows and rows of tables and banners but what makes any particular trade show booth stick out to you? With some investment in time, money, and effort, you can create a unique booth that visitors will remember.

    Here are some recommended tips and ideas for creating an engaging trade show booth, standing out from other exhibitors, and even attract potential new customers.

    1. Be Unique - Creative Expression Goes a Long Way

    2. Offer Company Swag

    3. Play Games - With Prizes

    4. Be Sure to Demo your Products/Services

    5. Implement Technology and be Active on Social Media

    Make a Creative Trade Show Booth

    The first of our trade show booth ideas covers the booth itself. Expect to invest a bit of money and time in creating the foundational part of a successful trade show endeavor. After all, good marketing requires that you show customers that you are to be taken seriously.

    Investing in a quality booth will be good for your ROI because it can be used over and over at trade show exhibits or other events for years to come. We recommend taking a look at some of our trade show booth kits to get started. Of course, you can always speak with a representative at FLS Banners to create a custom display that accurately represents your company brand. We carry 8ft and 10ft banners that are sure to attract compliments. When it comes to showing off your company's brand, quality custom printing is necessary. We use a sublimated-dye printing process that accurately represents the graphics unique to your brand and specifications.

    Provide Quality Swag and Promotional Giveaways

    Everybody likes free stuff. So why not make some friends and hand out free swag? Giveaways are an excellent way to attract visitors and spark conversation. The more unique your giveaway swag is, the more likely your company will stick in your guests' minds. Skip the pens and think outside the box with your trade show swag.

    Play Games with Prizes

    Continuing along the lines of swag giveaways, hosting simple games to win prizes is another excellent option when looking for creative ways to capture attendee's attention. A fun game that trade show attendees can join in and interact with tends to draw a crowd. Even at a serious "all-business" trade show event, putting a smile on a potential customer's face will help break down walls and reach people with a little fun.

    Be Sure to Demo Your Products or Services

    Now that you have your potential customers' attention, what do you do next? Being able to effectively explain or demonstrate your products or services to your audience is just as important as bringing people to you in the first place. Practice putting together a simple and short demonstration that addresses important questions your audience might have about the product or service you offer. Be ready to answer questions and provide and gather contact information for follow-up calls and referrals.

    Implement Technology and Be Active On Social Media

    Not only can technology make your trade show experience more efficient and positive, it can also impress attendees too. Digital signage and interactive touch screens are becoming popular at trade shows. Don't have the budget for this kind of tech? Even touch screen tablets (such as iPads) can be a great touch to your trade show table. Mounting hardware will keep it in place and within easy reach of visitors. Demonstrate your products on-screen with a short video, invite people to download an ebook, app, sign up for your email newsletter, phone messaging system, or other type of digital media you may have. Of course, don't forget to ask visitors to "like", follow, subscribe, or otherwise tune in on social media.

    The use of social media is important to broadcast from the show and keep audiences up-to-date. You invested in trade show booth, why not show it off? Be sure to let people know where they can find your exhibit at the trade show on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, or other platforms your customers tend to use.

    Start your next event or trade show off with a fresh new look! Look like a veteran trade show exhibitor even if it's your first time.

    Our team is happy to help you get the promotional banners, table covers, backdrops, and flags you need to make a splash. Contact FLS Banners to get started with the first step, the trade show booth!
