How to add some magic to your pharma exhibition stand design

Buying the right exhibition stand system and making it look good isn’t enough to make sure your pharmaceutical tradeshow presence is maximised. You’ll also need to add some magic.

Is your pharma exhibition stand a conversation starter?

All too often, organisations think that merely showing up with a good looking stand and waiting for people to come to them is all it takes. And that’s why some exhibitors fail. To stand out from the crowd, your pharma exhibition stand has to reach out and appeal to attendees in new and absorbing ways.

To attract footfall to your booth we use colour, signage and lights to deliver maximum visual impact, to attract the eye, and to draw attendees to you.

But there’s no point in getting people to your exhibition stand if there's no incentive for them to talk to you once there. So, in addition to making sure your display stands out, we also ensure that it is a catalyst for conversations.

Add some whistles and bells to your pharma exhibition stand

The good news is that there is an abundance of technology available to help us help you to achieve your objectives. Here are some examples of tried and tested ‘booth boosters’.

  • Side and backlit graphics
  • iPads
  • Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality
  • Touch screen data capture (GDPR compliant)
  • Holograms
  • Facial recognition software, biometrics, and sentiment analysis
  • Gamification
  • Robotics
  • Audience participation tools (e.g. live share content, interactive Q&A, crowd-sourced content etc.)
  • Proximity-based technology
  • Integrated social media
  • Data and advanced event marketing automation.
  • RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology
  • Apps
  • Photo walls
  • Object recognition tables
  • Touchscreen photo booths
  • Large graphic displays, signage and ceiling hung graphics
  • Mobile phone/laptop charging stations
  • Interactive digital signage

Are you compliant?

Of course, for heavily regulated industries such as pharma, there are strict rules that have to be followed. But having an ethical exhibition stand doesn’t mean you have to give up the creativity. We just have to be a bit smarter when it comes to design and promotion. And here again technology can help.

Rather than worrying about how to distribute information within the regulations, it pays to use your exhibition stand as a catalyst for knowledge sharing. For example, you could integrate tablets, dynamic displays, screens and even virtual or augmented reality into your exhibition stand to disseminate information. RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology can also be used to guide visitors around a pharma exhibition stand, creating an interactive and informative journey that enhances their overall experience.

Make sure your pharma exhibition stand supports your business objectives

When it comes to creating a winning show presence, integrating technology into your next exhibition stand design could provide that much-needed return on investment. However, while tech can help exhibitors to provide compelling, multi-sensory experiences for attendees, at Apex we never make our designs reliant on technology alone. Our core stand design still works, even if your budget doesn’t stretch to fancy gadgets and software.

We also have some fantastic non-tech options to help you increase footfall. These include break out areas that use clever seating to encourage people to strike up conversations and tasty food and drink. And it goes without saying that we always work within the parameters of your industry and location.

Crucially, before we do anything, we make sure you understand why you’re attending a particular exhibition in the first place. So, any additions we suggest will always support your tradeshow objectives.

Corporate event food. How to get it right
Food affects our mood. When we are hungry, we are more likely to be irritable and unhappy. On the other hand, being full makes us happy and relaxed. But, with the rise of foodie culture, what we eat and how it looks are just as important as how much we eat. As such, enjoying beautiful, tasty food has become an integral part of many successful business events. At the same time, food and drink are often the elements of an event most commented on by guests. So, it’s vital that you get it right. Events and Exhibition Stands
What is event projection mapping?
Event projection mapping uses video projectors to create amazing visual displays on a static surface. And it turns everyday objects - such as buildings and tables - into interactive displays.  Projection mapping is also known as video mapping, table mapping, spatial augmented reality, and 3D mapping. And, over the years, it has been used not only for advertising and decoration but also at concerts and the theatre. Basically, anywhere where real impact is needed. Events and Exhibition Stands
