display booths - the good, the bad, and the downright ugly
let us learn from the successes and mistakes of others [display booth designs and ideas]

fine-print legalize disclaimer - This page isn't like the movies or a made-for-TV mini-series... these pictures aren't "loosely based on a real life story"... they are the real life story. The company names below have NOT been changed to protect the innocent, because in business and at trade shows, there are no innocent companies. When your company exhibits at a trade show, it is creating a public record, and the image it creates is available for all to see. For better or for worse, first impressions count, and can last a lifetime, especially in the age of the internet!


Sometimes, all you need is your name... and when you fall into that category, you just need to make sure everyone can read your name. :)

yep, this trade show display booth looks like a failed attempt at "DIY" (do it yourself), and shows why sometimes you should really hire a professional who knows what they are doing
