Trade show display options include pop-up displays, which are flexible panels on an accordian-style frame; panel displays that users can arrange in various designs; and pipe and drape displays, which include a metal frame draped in fabric that serves as a display backdrop. Visitors can view information from all sides of island displays, and pop-up or panel table-top displays are good for small events. Custom-printed tension fabric panels attached to an expandable frame are also available.
Modular displays lend themselves to various-sized spaces, and users can arrange modular displays in a variety of unique configurations. For display situations requiring extra stability and the capacity to handle lighting or other heavier equipment, truss displays feature heavy-duty, steel or aluminum frames.
Other display extras include glass display cases, custom banner flags, and standing and hanging floor signs. Literature racks and display kiosks are also available for rent or purchase. A banner stand is another display option, which usually consists of an expanding vertical frame that holds a custom-designed banner. Television screens with built-in slide show software are among digital display options.
Exhibitors can choose to rent or purchase display set-ups and accessories. Conducting an online comparison of equipment specifications and pricing across a number of vendors is best. Some vendors provide graphic design and production services and offer reduced rental fees for multi-show rentals. Exhibitors can sometimes purchase used trade show displays at a reduced cost.
