Technology shows, like many trade shows, often require demonstration of your technology products or services through audio-visual, touchscreens, video walls and immersive technology. All of these components require content preparation and creative services, which take time. Plan ahead, begin discussing and working with your exhibit partner on your booth layout for these shows at least 6 months in advance, or more. Consider rental exhibit components to change up your look from show-to-show to highlight product launches, demo areas or hands-on experiences so attendees can interact with your brand. Talk with your local Skyline representative to discuss your organizations’ goals so we can help you achieve them.
