When you are walking through a trade show hall, the first thing you probably notice are the graphics. Each booth works like a billboard you see along the highway; the text, images, and colors should all intrigue the attendee to find out more about that company. If done correctly, attendees will also leave the event remembering your booth for many months, or even years, to come.
