Conference and Community Seminar Signs – How To Play A Starring Role From Behind The Scenes

The 140 Characters Conference Arrives in Canada

I might not be the biggest, but sometimes it pays to be small but mighty!

This was the case for me last week.  You see I never have attended a 140conf before & like most I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Infact I wasn’t even sure what I should wear!!!

I decided to cover myself in Magenta to match the conference’s branding.

At first I felt all alone but soon I had so many people find me in hopes that I could help them find what they were looking for.

I had some very prominent speakers and the rock stars of social media look to me for guidance.

Soon I had my own Paparattzi courtesy of Transitions Photograpy & Sean Yo.

They caught all my best angles & I was even brave enough for a close up.


Even my cousin enjoyed himself.  He’s the one in the top right corner.  He always wanted to be on the Big Screen!

The Sign Depot - Sponsorship

It just goes to show you that although you don’t play a starring role, you can still be use and an intricate part of something much bigger.  Choosing how to display your a custom sign is just as important as where you display it.

Logos and A-Frame signs make a big impact at conferences and seminars.  They are versatile are create a lot of visibility for your business.  They also can help with findabilty and wayfinding issues at the event.  Creating a clear message is also key when it comes to community conference signs.  Less is more, but remember to be bold and beautiful at the same time.  You want to stand out from everything else around your business logo, but never be an eyesore.
