1. Plan Your Routes Ahead of Time

Before you start designing and placing conference signs, it's essential to get a layout or floor plan of the venue. This will help you identify the exact placements for signage, including the direction in which the signs should be placed. By planning your routes ahead of time, you can ensure that attendees can easily navigate the conference space without any confusion.

2. Utilize Existing Structures

Make use of existing structures in the venue, such as walls, pillars, temporary structures, or doors, to display your conference signage. This not only saves costs but also ensures high visibility for attendees. Additionally, velcro proves to be a practical solution for temporary signage like banners, facilitating seamless adhesion to various surfaces. By affixing velcro strips to the rear of signs, they can be effortlessly fastened to walls, doors, or other structures. This practical approach allows event organizers to swiftly install and remove signage, enhancing convenience and efficiency throughout the event.

3. Enhance Wayfinding with Temporary Floor Signs

In addition to wall signage, you can unleash your creativity and utilize various elements of the event space to guide attendees effectively. For instance, consider incorporating signs on staircases, pillars, and other prominent structures. By strategically placing temporary wayfinding signs, such as textured vinyl stickers, on the floor, you can effortlessly direct people to different areas of the conference. This innovative approach not only enhances navigation but also introduces a captivating visual element that will leave a lasting impression on attendees.

4. Opt for Contrasting Colors

When designing your conference signs, choose colors that pop against the event venue itself. This will make your signage more noticeable and easier to read from a distance. Experiment with contrasting color combinations to create an eye-catching display that captures the attention of attendees. Some combinations include,

5. Plan for Sponsored Signage

If you have sponsors for your conference, it's crucial to plan ahead to include their full advertisement which may contain a logo, a slogan, a call to action, a QR code, and more. Ensure that you include the appropriate information based on your sponsorship levels - and that every detail is noticed. This not only benefits your sponsors but also adds a professional touch to your event.

6. Maintain Consistency with Event Marketing Materials

To create a cohesive visual experience, it's important to match your event marketing materials with the signage at the conference. This includes using consistent colors, style, wording and calls to action. By maintaining consistency, you reinforce your brand identity and strengthen key messages to attendees.

7. Incorporate Interactive Signage

Take your conference signage to the next level by incorporating interactive elements. This could include QR codes that attendees can scan for additional information, touchscreens for interactive maps, or digital displays that showcase real-time updates. Interactive signage not only engages attendees but also provides them with valuable resources.

Conference signage isn't just for decoration. It steers attendees, builds a professional atmosphere, and boosts your brand. By following these tips, you can create impactful and eye-catching conference signage that enhances the attendee experience and strengthens your brand. Remember, planning is key, creativity is encouraged, and sponsors deserve their moment in the spotlight!
