Create your stand

Artist Marketplace Profile

First Impressions Count. Here are some tips to consider when designing your stand:

  • Your company identity and logo should stand out

  • Keep messages and signs high – visitors and furniture can block visibility

  • Easy access to your display, as well as onto your stand, will facilitate interest

  • Don’t create unnecessary physical barriers

  • Demonstrations and activity on your stand will attract visitors

  • Avoid a confusing or messy display – keep the message simple

  • Resist the temptation to cover your walls with leaflets, brochures, and posters

  • Use upper- and lower-case lettering – signs all in capitals are more difficult to read

  • Ensure staff are readily identifiable and easily distinguished from other visitors

  • The worst thing you can do is not invite people to register their interest – so don’t forget a ‘call to action’ of some sort

  • What products/services will you feature?

The Artist Marketplace page is amongst the most visited pages on the show's website. This is where visitors pre-plan their show using the website's favourites feature and decide who they're going to see. Be sure to include an eye catching image and compelling description.
