Craft Trade Show Booth Superstars

Want to build your best trade show booth ever? Take a look at these examples of well-conceived booths and why they work.

Booth Design Award Winner Annie Adams creates a jewelry display presented as a dinner party. Soft greens set off the silver, and plenty of lighting makes this unusual booth effective and beautiful. The side table provides space for promotional materials, with storage beneath.

Touch the Earth presents their exquisite work with a dramatic backdrop which makes the products pop and the lights dazzle. This booth says “exotic.”

Neutral colors with an accent wall allow the ceramic pieces by Libbyware in this booth to stand out. Use of pedestals, and varying height of displayed craft work draws interest while making it look uncluttered. A wide open walk-in and generous use of lighting makes this booth truly inviting.

The perfect flooring, in squares of just the right size, emphasizes this whimsical furniture by Avner Zabari.  The backdrop picks up the golds in the work, and provides a foil for wall pieces “framed” on black. This booth display provides an excellent example of a cohesive collection of work by the artist.

This clean, fresh, whimsical booth with work by artist Norris Hall, is uncrowded and easy to view. The children’s clocks are shown at just the right height to get a look at the whole line at a glance, yet be able to enter the booth easily to see more detail. The artist brands his line with his name, signature giraffe and the palette he uses. Fun giraffe characters rise above the wall and attract visitors from a distance. The artist produces other products, but keeps this display on-target by showing one collection.

Dramatic lighting and white pedestals create a “gallery” in the Artyfacts booth. Two chairs provide a relaxing break for buyers walking the show. The presentation includes works displayed at many levels, while maintaining a clean, uncluttered look. The rug provides just the right amount of texture, without overwhelming the art.

It’s all about glass – and light. Hudson Beach Glass designed their booth with display counters at elbow-height, perfect for shoppers to view and handle their stunning line. White background shows off the soft, clear colors of the glass, while reflecting the sparkle that makes the collection so attractive.

JAK Designs uses several types of racks, as well as tabletop to display their colorful handmade knitwear. Large color photos and professional signage complement the mix.  Buyers have easy access to this airy and uncrowded corner booth. A small table provides space for order forms, cards, and business supplies.


Cindy Pacileo’s Little Guys are small, but her booth makes a big impact, drawing the attention of buyers with eye-catching color and graphics.  Large photos show her whimsical ceramic creatures easily visible from the aisle. Spotlights illuminate different collections within her line.
