by | Apr 16, 2024 | Vendor Tips | 0 comments

When perfecting your craft show setup, it’s easy to fall into the habit of assessing it solely from the vendor’s perspective. However, the key to a successful display lies in adopting different viewpoints. Let’s explore the crucial perspectives that will elevate your craft show experience:

1) View Your Display as a Shopper:

Envision the venue through the eyes of a shopper. Imagine approaching your booth from various angles and consider what catches the eye from a distance. Ensure your show-stopping pieces are strategically placed to attract attention. Think about the overall vibe your display emits – does it resonate with your ideal customers?

Your display should be eye-catching, reflecting the unique style of your products. Shoppers decide in seconds whether to explore a booth, so make sure yours communicates the right message from afar.

Consider the flow of traffic and place attention-grabbing elements where they’ll be noticed first. Your craft show setup should tell a story that engages potential customers and draws them into your space.

Don’t forget to join our free 5-day challenge to discover essential aspects of your display and learn how to convey your product’s message effectively.

If your booth is spacious, walk into it and assess the overall feel. Optimize the layout to provide a comfortable shopping experience. For tables, maintain a clean and uncluttered look. Your display sets the tone, so ensure it aligns with the vibe you want to convey.

2) View Your Display as the Event Organizer:

Craft show organizers appreciate vendors who adhere to guidelines. Ensure your display stays within the allocated space and doesn’t create tripping hazards in the aisles. Stick to the product category you applied with, as organizers plan based on this information.

Make your display well-branded, helping organizers and shoppers locate you easily. Showcase items the organizers have promoted to enhance recognition. Following craft show etiquette is vital for a positive relationship with event organizers.

3) View Your Display as a Salesperson:

Your craft show setup should guide shoppers in pairing products seamlessly. Group complementary items together to showcase their potential combinations. Think like a salesperson and leverage your surroundings. Explore other vendors’ products and suggest pairings to customers based on their interests.

Set your business apart within your category. Highlight unique pieces and move them to prominent positions. Use the insights gained from observing other vendors to refine your sales pitch.
