From virtual product demonstrations to immersive brand storytelling, these technologies are reshaping the way audiences engage with exhibits.
2. Sustainable Exhibit Design
Sustainability is no longer just a buzzword; it’s a fundamental aspect of trade show exhibits in 2024. Exhibitors are adopting eco-friendly materials, energy-efficient lighting, and reusable structures to minimize their environmental footprint.
