An exhibition stand design must include a well thought out lighting plan

Every good exhibition stand design must factored in lighting as a key design element if they are to succeed in a very competitive environment.

Lighting has become a key factor in how an exhibition stand will be perceived by your target audience.

Lighting will set the mood of your exhibition stand?

Lighting on your exhibition stand will help to promote your brand?

Lighting can be used to highlight areas of your stand so that you brand name, logo and messaging are brought across clearly. Make sure you are selective on where the lighting is focused so that people’s attention is drawn to the areas that matter most to you.

For example, if you are launching a new product, the area of the stand about the new product/ service could have lighting focused on it. Alternatively, you could focus on a promotion offer to bring people to your stand.

How much does exhibition lighting cost?

The budget will vary a lot depending on the size of the stand and the types of lighting in use. You will need to consider running costs of the bulbs or LED diodes, the efficiency of the lights, and the amount of power needed to run them. There are plenty on low energy lighting ranges to choose from, but you will need to do some research to establish what is the best choice for your exhibition stand or display. Getting the balance between budgetary restraints and good lighting is always a challenge so take expert advice at an early stage.
