So, when I was preparing for my first trade show years ago, I didn't know what to expect. How are booths set up? How do I arrange my product? Well, I searched all over the web, but could not find many pictures.
In order to help out any other potential trade show participants, or just show you how my booths and displays have progressed over the years, I now give you Kailo Chic booths from shows past.....
Yesterday I posted a photo of my first ever trade show booth (March 2007). Here it is again so that you can get a feel for the transition by booth have made over the years.
A few months later in August of 2007 I set up in Dallas again.
The next show I did wasn't a trade show, but a Holiday show called, Stitch, where I sold to the public. This show was great! I had so many sales! I also liked that I had so much space to really display my stuff the way I wanted instead of having to cram it all in a small little booth.
In 2009 I participated in a few more shows, here are my booths from another Dallas Trade show and the Atlanta Gift Show.
Dallas Apparel Show
The Atlanta show was the last trade show I've participated in. I then became pregnant and had Madeline, so traveling for trade shows has been put on hold for a while. I have however participated in several local shows selling my products directly to the public. Here are a few pictures of those booths.
As you can see, there has been quite a change from the first booths I did with the black backdrop. I really think that the lighter backgrounds really make the products stand out more. What do you think?
