When designing your trade show display, there are many considerations to keep in mind. What color scheme will you choose? How will you attract event attendees to stop at your booth among the dozens (or hundreds) of competing displays on the floor? With all this to consider, it can be easy to overlook the importance of choosing the right type of lighting for your display.
The right trade show booth lighting not only provides optimal task and mood lighting for your display, but can create ambiance that your attendees will appreciate as well. And when it comes to lighting choices, you’ve certainly got options. From halogen and fluorescent to LED and everything in between, each lighting type comes with some inherent benefits. Ultimately, however, LED tends to be the best option for a trade show booth display – and for a few reasons.
Higher Output, Less Consumption
For starters, LED lighting offers the highest output in terms of lumens while also using the least amount of energy. This makes it a great choice for those who want to be more environmentally conscious in their booth set-ups without having to sacrifice brightness or light quality in the process. In fact, did you know that LED bulbs only use about 20% of the energy of a “traditional” incandescent bulb?
This. Combined with the longer lifespan of an LED light, makes LED lighting a practical choice for your trade show display. With the average LED bulb lasting for years upon years before needing replacement, this lighting choice can also save you money in the long run.
Depending on the size of your booth, you may be somewhat limited when it comes to finding a lighting solution that suits your smaller display. This is where LED options can really shine, as they are flexible enough to be set up in smaller configurations. The same generally cannot be said of halogen and fluorescent displays, which may be better suited for larger spaces.
Versatile for Your Lighting Needs
No matter what your vision for your trade show display’s lighting may be, you can accomplish it with LED lighting. This type of lighting makes it easy to achieve any color you may have in mind while still offering plenty of control over color temperature, brightness and other important aspects of your booth’s lighting design. This makes it the most versatile lighting option by far. In fact, many LED bulbs can be controlled through a computer or other device so that you can change the color or adjust brightness remotely without the need to swap out bulbs. As a result, you can create a truly eye-catching display with ease.
Low Temperature Output
These days, some trade show venues have strict requirements when it comes to light and temperature output. Even if your venue doesn’t, controlling the temperature of your display is a must for keeping attendees comfortable. Unlike other lighting options that can put out a lot of heat, LED bulbs hardly put out any heat at all – making them an ideal option for areas where controlling temperature and heat output is important. And of course, if any of your display lighting will be located within reach, the last thing you want is for an attendee to accidentally bump into a light and become burned.
