1. Going Au Natural – Natural Materials
When it’s all about style, mood, and feel, reclaimed or stained wood planking, faux printing, or roll vinyl flooring in stone, concrete or wood are unique materials seen in exhibit designs.

2. Seam Free – Seamless LED Panel Video Applications
No bezels need apply. Tiles made of mirco-small RGB LEDs can be stacked/arranged into configurations for theatres, design accents, and even overhead signage.

3. Loud & Proud – Projection Mapping
Activate any surface with video with this unique AV treatment. Content is key, but when done right can add buzz and take a booth beyond the show floor (as seen on the front page of the Houston Chronicle).

4. It’s a Virtual Reality
Not so long ago, virtual reality (VR) was a curious novelty. Fast forward to event marketing today; you’ll see many branding looking for that “just right” marketing application. But when you have it, one thing is for certain; your brand is on the cutting edge of technology. We love simulation experiences. Ready to take flight? Keep your eye on the sky and experience VR in 1920s style.

6. Full Speed Ahead! Take a Load Off & Enjoy: Charging Stations
No only for guests, but booth staff also can find this trend/activity useful. Charging can cutting-edge into almost any surface for open, easy access. Locker technologies also exist for secure charging where guests can leave their devices and engage with other areas of an exhibit.

7. Kick Back, Relax, Dwell Awhile – Lounge Areas
Create a more unique, comfortable experience for your booth visitors with some soft furnishings. Add some half walls, enclosed environments or a second story to up the experience to a VIP level. Combine with charging stations & you have a captive and appreciative crowd. Increase dwell time, anyone?
