The Best Seat in the House

Getting Up Can Be Half the Battle

If you do a lot of shows the one thing you know is sitting down for a minute is both good and bad. On the plus side, you get some time off your feet and probably a little relief from your aching body. That is until the next customer shows up...

Now you have to exert all of your energy to get up out of the chair with a big smiling face.

As a vendor at outdoor shows, it is crucial to pay attention to every detail to ensure a successful experience. While you may be focused on your products, marketing, and presentation, one aspect that is often overlooked but equally important is seating. Providing suitable seating for yourself and potential workers not only demonstrates your consideration for their comfort but also makes withstanding a long day a little more bearable.


When it comes to outdoor shows, there are several options for seating arrangements. The choice you make should be based on the nature of your products, the space available at your booth, and the overall aesthetic you wish to create (yes, people are going to notice your bright red oversized pocket chair). Some common seating choices include folding chairs, camping chairs, coolers/tote bins, and folding stools.


Folding stools, in particular, offer many advantages that make them an excellent option for vendors at outdoor shows. Firstly, they are incredibly practical due to their lightweight and compact design. Folding stools can be easily transported, set up, and stored, making them hassle-free to work with. This is especially important when dealing with the various logistics involved in setting up a booth at different events.


So take into consideration that you have just slumped down into a big camping chair, and while comfortable, you need to interact with a customer and don’t want them feeling like that are a burden because they happened to show while you were taking a break. Utilizing a stool gives you the option of being almost eye level (particularly if you are sitting behind a raised table) or quickly and easily getting in a standing position to greet them.


Moreover, folding stools contribute to the overall aesthetics of your booth. Their sleek and minimalist design can blend seamlessly with any decor or theme you have established, allowing them to appear as an intentional part of your setup rather than simply functional seating.


Among the various options available, folding stools can be the ideal choice due to their practicality, versatility, aesthetic appeal, and potent to aid in increased sales with your ability to quickly interact with your customer. So, make sure to prioritize this often overlooked aspect and create a comfortable space not only for your customers but for yourself on those long hard days.
