Knowledge is great. Competence is great. But the combination of both encourages people to trust you and increases your powers of enchantment. ~ Guy Kawasaki

You trade show booth is your space that you use for sharing knowledge and inspiring conversation. It is a channel for enchantment. It is the space where your brand image is broadcasted. It prompts people to form perceptions about your company and your products.

The exhibit design is a powerful display of your brand psychology.
