Most of you who regularly attend the art fair have seen suppliers occupying a single booth and suppliers occupying multiple booths. Paying for additional booth space does not necessarily guarantee that you will sell more. Sometimes additional space is required, but not always.
A specific booth area will be provided for you, and you must stay in this area.
The standard booth size of the arts and crafts exhibition is 10 x 10, so you should design a booth suitable for space. If you want to buy a craft tent, you need a 10 x 10 canopy.

The size sometimes varies, so be sure to check the guide for each performance you attend and try to make the booth design as flexible as possible to suit various spaces.
Excellent exhibition organizers will not allow exhibitors to display outside their specific areas, because it will violate the allowable space of adjacent booths, and too large booths will interfere with traffic flow, appear professional, cause safety hazards, and make customers Stay away from neighboring booths.

When determining the size of the craft booth, please keep in mind the following key items:
1- The first thing to consider is cost. Please keep in mind that if the weather is bad, you will not be able to get the cost of the craft booth, so if you rent two spaces, the money you spend on the booth will double.
2- The second consideration is whether you have enough inventory to fill the two booths. The appearance of the booth is very important. If your inventory is low and you try to stretch it to an undesirable level, it will not be very attractive.
3- Another consideration is that you must place props and decorations in the space. If you don’t have enough shelves or tables to accommodate two booths, it’s best to stick to one until you have enough display props and utensils to fill the larger craft booth.
4- You must also worry about whether you can manage a larger booth area. If you attend a crowded show alone, will you be able to handle the checkout process, customer issues, and pay close attention to the shoppers in the booth and the children around the valuables?
5- If you sell small items such as jewelry, a large booth area may cause your inventory to become less and be lost in the booth space. You want your items to stand out in your booth without being enveloped by a lot of blanks.
If you have larger items, such as oil paintings, statues or furniture, the larger booth space may be the space you need to display the product correctly.
6- If you are attending a specific craft exhibition for the first time, it is wise to choose a booth for the first time to see if the craft exhibition is profitable. If the turnout rate is high and you make a profit, then you can consider using a double booth the following year.
7-Wise craftsmen know that the weather cannot be accurately predicted. This is why experienced craftsmen can use tent covers to protect their products and continue shopping even in bad weather. If there is only one booth-sized tent, you must determine whether buying a larger tent is the cost you will absorb for the extra space.
You may eventually have to own a tent for you to rent a single booth, while another tent requires a larger booth. This is a considerable additional cost and you must determine whether it is absolutely necessary.
Considering all these issues, only you can determine whether the cost of multiple booths is suitable for you. Sometimes profits exceed costs, but not always. As we all know, every exhibition is different. Happy craftsmanship!
