Have you ever been to a trade show at which every booth looks exactly the same? How do you know what one to stop at if none of them catch your eye? If you're a vendor at this year's Everything Spring Fair at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds in Hamilton on March 23, create the booth that catches everyone's attention. Here are some ideas to inspire.

    The Craps Table

    I'm not sure if this booth was specifically for a casino, or just a business associated with the gambling industry. Either way, it's eye-catching, unique, and representative of what kind of product or service is offered.

    The Bean Bag Corner

    Dell has created an out-of-the-way space that is conducive to capturing attention and making a presentation. Attendees at the fair will spend extra time at an inviting booth like this.

    The Sampler

    Don't just tell everyone how great your product is, show them! This booth features a full setup of the company's coffee products for potential customers to sample as they go.

    The Disco Booth

    This is a trade show booth for Elation, which specializes in lighting. Instead of just showing pictures of its lighting strengths, the company actually created an atmosphere to showcase its wares.

    The Visual Aid

    This booth by Sodastream creates a huge visual that really makes you think about its products and the alternatives. With a booth like this, the benefits of the product are unmistakable.
