Things To Know If You Are Planning On Starting An Exhibition!

Posted by Gracie Middleton on January 31, 2017 (Comments Closed)

Starting up an entire exhibition, sounds rather simple does it not? In reality it is quite the opposite. Planning an exhibition is a long and stressful process that could take up to even six whole months sometimes! Especially the huge and rather famous exhibitions we all hear of at random times of the year, they have been planned for months and months to be perfected which is why a majority of them are hugely successful on many levels. You can be young or you could be old, it does not matter because when it comes to exhibitions anyone has a chance of starting up one if they have got the right knowledge on how to do so.

Setting a theme

For when you are starting a huge exhibition of any kind, thinking of a proper theme could help in easing out things a little. You can think of something simple and not too complicated so then every exhibition stand can follow the theme when they are putting their stands up. This is actually really important. You have to come to a proper decision about what the whole exhibition is going to actually be about, and then get on to creating the overall look based on the theme. If you do not want to think of themes and settle on one, you can obviously ask stalls to come up with their personal styles to be show cased.

The Creativity

If you settle on a good theme, then the next thing is to get to work on making that theme happen with your exhibition. You can discuss with your partners or even with the people who are going to run stalls in to your exhibition to help you out with how the creativity should happen. You can invest in professional workers to make sure each individual exhibition stand design Dubai is going accordingly with the theme you decided. You can come up with many ideas, one after the other on how much things you can bring to your exhibition to make it an incredible experience to people.

The Promotion

Once the work is over, that does not mean you can relax doing nothing until the opening days rolls around. No, you have to make sure you heavily promote your whole exhibition in every way possible to make sure more people know about it so that the attendance rate can then go up in numbers. Since we now have complete access to all sorts of social media, it has become the fastest and most reliable method of promoting all sorts of events! So take advantage of everything available, thus your exhibition can be hugely successful as well.

Building Your Brand: How To Stand Out In A Crowd

Posted by Gracie Middleton on January 23, 2017 (Comments Closed)

With so many people with similar qualifications and experience applying for jobs and opportunities every year, how do you stand out from the crowd and show that you are different from the rest? One of the ways of doing that is building a brand name for yourself as opposed to building one for a company. In doing so, you can gain name recognition and enable future employers to find you with a single click on the internet. Here is how:

Be Everywhere

In order to gain maximum exposure, find every available platform that will allow you to do your thing and be yourself and then go sign up for a profile. Social media is the revelation of the 21st century so make full use of it. If you are an artist, find arts and crafts sites and online stores where you can sell and promote your work. If you don’t have a special skill, simply promote yourself by having profiles on as many sites as you can and hire a logo designer to give you a brand that will resonate with your values and which you can use consistently across all your profiles.

Make Connects

Remember that connections are not just things that happen online. They happen in real life too. The more people you talk to you and connect to, the more people will remember you if they have an opportunity. If you have been networking online perhaps it is time to reinforce that with some face-to-face meetings. And don’t turn up to these meetings unprepared; find a place that does business card printing and have at least two dozen of them ready to hand out when you go to a social event. While you are building your brand, consider every gathering an opportunity to leave an indelible mark on someone.

Give Proof

Since everything is now conducted online, convert your old work portfolio into a digital format and regularly update it. There are many sites that will allow you to create portfolios with passwords so that you can give access to whomever you want. There are also online drives where you can store the files and simply email them to someone who asks for it. It is a good idea to have a few print copies as well since you may have to take them with you to an interview. Make sure that they are printed in colour and of high-quality to show off your best work.

These and several other marketing techniques will help you nail down a brand personality that you wish to embody and then propagate in order to stand out from others who do not know how to market themselves. Practice these and watch the results appear.

Preparing For College

College can be very different to high school and your life itself while you are at college will be vastly different to the life that you are living now. It is important that you take time even during high school to prepare yourself for college so that you know what you are getting in to and so that you are well braced for the many changes that will occur in your life in the years to come.

It is important for you to take a long time to study the different courses available and make a solid decision which course of study you want to follow and what you want to do with the rest of your life. You will be surprised to find that most college students spend a lot of money on their college education, waste four to five precious years off their lives only to go out and find jobs that are completely unrelated to their education. In fact, it is also important for you to keep in mind that you will not always need a college education to get a job and for some fields, you will be able to get a good job right after high school.

Do your research

You will find that different colleges require you to take different tests to prove your competency. You will need to do your research and find out exactly what you will need to do for your chosen college. Some colleges will require to take GMAT courses in Dubai and achieve a certain score in order to gain entry to the college.

Other colleges might need you to complete an IELTS preparation course and get a certain score to prove your standard of English.

While doing your research, you will find that some colleges are better known for certain courses of study while others are better for other courses. Therefore, even if you have always wanted to attend a certain college, you may not be able to do so if your chosen programme of study is not available at that college or if the college is not very well known for that course of study.

You might even want to consider taking a gap year off to really explore your options, to discover yourself and to come to a conclusion about what you want to do with the rest of your life. You could use the year to study a new language and learn about a new culture which can also help you with your college application and your future at college.
