CEM: Floor Plan Development

A well-designed floor plan or layout is critical to the success of an exhibition or event.

After completing this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Define elements of a successful floor plan
  • Analyze an exhibition’s target market and industry segment to develop a floor plan that meets both exhibitor and attendee needs
  • Identify factors that impact traffic flow on a floor plan to accommodate all populations of attendees
  • Identify the most common booths/stands used in a typical floor plan
  • Gain an understanding of safety protocols and procedures as they relate to floor plan development
  • Create a floor plan that incorporates the unique features of a venue or facility
  • Understand and evaluate technology options and tools to maximize, traffic flow, sales, and sponsorships
  • Identify various space assignment systems and how they affect the design of a floor plan
  • Analyze and evaluate past and current floor plans to identify sources of improvement and enhancements to future floor plans

Registration fees for on-location courses in the United States and all virtual courses are $299 USD members/$440 USD non-members (per course).
