MOOD The Art of Today International Magazine, in cooperation with Art Expo Algarve, is continuing an initiative focused on increasing exhibitor success through visual presentations. An immense amount of research and countless visitor feedback surveys indicate that the visitor experience, and subsequently their buying habits, rely heavily on the visual presentation of exhibitor booths, programming spaces and sponsor lounges.

MOOD The Art of Today has noticed a spike in the number of visitors who prefer simple booth displays that avoid the overcrowding of artworks – both mounted to walls and those placed on pedestals within the designated space. As our visitors’ preferences evolve, so must we to ensure we are providing you with the best fair experience.

The Best Booth Award encourages all galleries and artists to think like the visitor they will be selling to when hanging the booth.
