Advanced designer tools

In this article you will learn how to use advanced Designer tools to create a floor plan. Alternatively, you can have your floor plan professionally designed by our team in 5-7 business days.

Adding a booth description

You can add a description for available booths in Booth Reservation on your Dashboard. It will apply to all available booths. See more details here.


The description, size, price and booth type will be displayed on the available booth in the floor plan like this:


Set individual booth descriptions by clicking "Booth Description" in booth properties.


Working with background shapes

How to group background shapes

Select the objects you would like to group and click the group tool. To ungroup, use the ungroup tool. (Shortcut: Ctrl + G)

How to draw irregular shapes

With the polyline and Bézier curve tool, you can draw irregular shapes.

By clicking and dragging the black nodes on the Bézier shape, you add curves to the lines you want rounded.

After making a polyline or Bézier curve shape, you can move around the yellow nodes to modify it.

How to use the align tool

You can use the align tool if you need two or more objects to align a certain way in relation to each other.

How to move an object front/back

You can use this tool if you need to move one object so that it shows on top of another. Booths are always shown on top, so you aren't able to put any object on top of booths.

Locking objects

Locked objects can't be moved on the floor plan. To use this option, click on the object, and then click the lock tool.

To unlock it, click the unlock tool or double click the object.

Working with icons

Add icons from the toolbar (or upload your own) and customize the color and size of each one. You can add a colorful background to the icon to make it stand out better.

You can also turn the icon into a clickable object using layers.

Adding a viewbox

A viewbox determines the area that will be shown once the floor plan loads.

To add a viewbox, create a rectangle on top of the area you would like to display and click on “SET AS VIEWBOX.”

Drawing wayfinding

Wayfinding helps to see where exhibitors, conference rooms, booths and restaurants are located on a plan and gives routing directions. See how to create it yourself here (or have our team create it for you).

Working with layers

Each layer in the Designer serves a specific role, and understanding their functions will help you create professional-looking floor plans. They can also help you create multi-level floor plans and multi-floor wayfinding. See more details here.

Booth statistics

You can see statistics on the number of your regular and irregular POIs, as well as a drop-down of Available, On Hold and Reserved booths. Click on the tool "Statistics" on the toolbar at the top:

More details can be found in your "Booths - Booth list" and in "Reservations - Stats."
