I Have A Question On Booth Space Selection

April 18th, 2008 by Bruce --> · 3 Comments

I am going to be attending the Vision East Expo in New York next year and would like your opinion on what booth space would be the best one to select.  I can show hall floor plan if you like but most 10’x20′ spaces are still available.  Should I pick one close to the front of the hall? On a corner or in the middle of the convention hall?  Any advice you might have on this would be appreciated.

Thanks  for all your help,

Angela

    I’m guessing it’s going to be at the Javits Center. If so, depending on which floor it’s on. Get booth space closet to the door that has a cafeteria/food nearby. Also bathrooms, since they will have lots of traffic. Other than that, yes..the space in the front of the hall and to the right. When attendees walk in, most of them will go to the right. I’m guessing from driving on the right all the time.

    Near cyber cafes are great locations if you have it at the show.

    If you can wait and find out where the sponsers are going to be. Any booth space near them will have traffic since they will have great giveaways and/or food/drinks.

    Being close to the front is good, but the layout has a lot to do with traffic flow. If the main doors lead to an isle then that isle will be the busiest. But sometime these isle get block with traffic and walk-in booth traffic is limited because most people are just trying to get in to the show. So I would recommend being 9 or 10 booth from the doors.

    I love the comment about near the bathrooms, this is particularly a great location when you are in a more woman dominated market. Beauty Shows, Clothing, woman go to the washroom in mass!

    Keep that in mind for the next event too
