Today's Dive into the deeper archives of Webcomics.com take us to May 9, 2011, when we discussed Booth Etiquette.
There are a few points of booth etiquette that you should be aware of as you’re exhibiting at a convention.
No poaching: You may never — ever — address an attendee while he or she is speaking to another exhibitor. Interrupting a discussion between an attendee and an exhibitor is unforgiveable.
No blocking: It’s important to get as much vertical display space as possible. Placing a tall banner stand behind your chair is perfectly fair. And so is erecting a display that stands above your table. But when you start blocking your neighbors’ ability to see down the walkway you’re treading on dangerous turf. If you have this kind of set-up, you should ask your neighbor’s permission — and be prepared to improvise if they say they’d rather not be blocked by your display.
Stay behind the table: You might think that standing in front of your table, handling out flyers and barking for your table is a great idea, but I guarantee your neighbors don’t. You’re disrupting the traffic flow, and you’re probably causing more than a few people to re-think how badly they want to walk down your aisle. Stay behind the table, where you belong.
