They have very different 'feels' depending on the colour choice for the flooring.
Which one do you like? I immediately fell in love with the white carpet but started worrying about visitors spilling drinks, dirty shoes leaving their marks, and all the other practical concerns I have!
Once again it's a form versus function debate: Yes, dark flooring is practical. Yes, it will be stain resistant. Yes, it will last longer. BUT - Our designer has won me over....I love the white flooring in this booth.
(For those of you who are not convinced - keep a carpet cleaner handy during the show, have your carpet washed after a couple of events, and set some funds aside to splurge on a fabulous new white carpet when the old one starts to show some wear and tear!)
Here are some tips on why carpet (don't worry - it does not have to be white) is still a popular choice:
Carpet is still the most popular choice
It comes in a wide range of colours
You can choose eco-friendly products
It is easily installed & dismantled for an event
It provides comfort (with underpad) if you are standing for hours
You can easily hide cables
Carpet is customizable (printing or inlays)
It is one of the most cost-effective solutions (purchase or rental)
Here is a short video on some of the other flooring products
we use for trade shows (I always thought the artificial grass was neat and am pleasantly surprised about how good roll-able vinyl flooring options have become).
In the video you will see samples of carpet, vinyl flooring, synthetic grass, LED light tiles, printed tiles, printed carpet & underpad.
This is Mucci Farm's exhibit where we used a 'wood' vinyl flooring along with a charcoal grey carpet.
