Qualities to Look for in Trade Show Flooring

It’s important to choose trade show flooring with five essential qualities.


Consider the different ways that your business might need to use the flooring. Maybe you will be showcasing different products at trade shows, like pet products and gym equipment. Choosing a flooring that offers a versatile aesthetic, as well as the strength and durability for different applications, means you’ll get maximum value from that investment.


Long hours on your feet at a trade show are tough, so a floor that offers cushion is a must. Keep in mind that a more comfortable floor will be appealing to your booth visitors, too, encouraging them to stay longer and maximizing your chances of making a sale.

Wear Layer

Choosing a product with a wear layer can help to keep your display looking its best. Wear layers add durability, and they also save you on maintenance costs and time.

Design Options

Your floor is an important part of your overall booth, and it adds to the aesthetic of your space. When you choose a product that’s available with different design options, you can get a floor that will enhance, rather than detract from your booth.
