LIGHTING

Q. Do I need to bring lighting for my booth?

A. Yes.  We dim the lights in the building and add ambient lighting for a festive mood.  All you need to do is light your own space which is pretty easy to do.  Your ambient lighting will add atmosphere to your booth and also show your items to their best advantage.  Unleash your creativity and see what a difference lighting can make.

Q.  Can you offer some suggestions for lighting my booth?

A.  If  lighting your booth is something new to you we suggest you keep it simple at the beginning. We found an article that we hope will be useful: Show Lights
