Roll out your ‘red carpet’ with memorable flooring!

Give visitors the red carpet treatment when you guide them through your booth with dynamic icons and graphics from your brand. It will catch the eye, welcome attendees into your exhibit space, and make your booth a fun place to explore. ­

 In September, we visited the International Manufacturing Technology Show, which filled McCormick Place in Chicago.  Since it was a local show with several of our clients exhibiting, the Nichols team scouted the floor looking for the best examples of the 2016 Exhibit Trends.  Our next few blog posts will feature photos from IMTS 2016.

Flooring is an essential part of any trade show. McCormick Place is the nation’s largest convention center, boasting an impressive 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space. With the amount of walking show attendees must do, your flooring is a huge opportunity to make a great impression.

dsc00620Custom booths call for custom flooring. There’s no better way to accentuate your awesome booth design than by continuing the same design elements throughout all areas of the exhibit.  This booth’s flooring mirrors the circular elements from the wall and furniture, creating a cohesive design from top to bottom.

Once the exhibit has your attention, a colorful carpet inlay draws visitors in to the reception desk for a guided experience. Creative use of flooring is sure to attract visitors to every corner of your booth.
