5. In any type of booth whether an inline or an Island never sit in your booth at lease in a low chair. If you sit make sure you do not block any entrance path to your booth, for example an inline booth try to sit off to the side near the aisle. Try not to sit as much as possible standing gets more attention. To help with this try to use double padding on your booth. This can make a world of difference on your sales force backs and feet
