  • Popular Types of Trade Show Displays

    Trade shows include intense competition as businesses try to outdo each other with flashy trade show displays and creative marketing ideas. You aren’t just trying to find the best buyers but also scoping out competitors and looking for industry trends. Irrespective of the multitudes of display types, there are some that remain popular. Here are a few classic trade show display options that are unlikely to go out of fashion:

    Banner Stands

    Banner stands are a popular choice for trade show displays of all sizes. They are easy to set up and take down, and they are relatively inexpensive. They also transport well; you can pop them inside their protective cases and carry them on a bus, train, or other public transport. They are versatile and can be used as standalone displays or combined with other banner stands to create an impressive back wall display. They’re available in a wide range of styles and sizes including portable banner stands which are lightweight, have few moving parts, and cost less. Retractable banner stands have a roller mechanism, making them easy to set up and take down.

    Exhibit Truss Systems

    Truss systems are just one step short of a completely customizable exhibit. A typical truss system includes several truss parts and back wall pieces. Although they look impressive, they can be set up quickly and without the need for sophisticated tools. They are durable, highly functional, and easy to maintain. Most truss exhibits are designed in a way that visitors can get a 360-degree view of the booth. At Trade Show Display Pros, we offer truss kits that are structurally engineered to be stable and safe. Plus, you can choose to build pre-designed shapes or request a customized configuration.

    Multimedia Displays

    Multimedia displays are perfect for drawing traffic into the booth and capturing audience attention. For example, iPad displays can be used as a presentation station, an interactive kiosk, or an information display stand. With interactive multimedia displays, it is easy to engage potential customers and inform them about your products and services while you are busy with other attendees. They can be great for getting information to potential customers in an engaging and clear way.

  • How to Keep Fabric Displays Clean

    Fabric trade show displays have become popular over the years because they are easy to use, set up, and transport. Plus with some care and maintenance, they can last for a very long time. If you own fabric displays, here’s how you can protect them from damage:

    Cleaning the Fabric

    Always read washing instructions carefully to prevent potential problems because cleaning instructions vary depending on the fabric type. Most fabric trade show displays are made of polyester or polyester blends. These can be machine-washed or spot-cleaned. But washing instructions also vary depending on the display stand (i.e. tension fabric banner stand, hanging fabric banner display, etc.). Fabric blends and construction styles will vary accordingly.

    If the instructions allow the fabric to be washed in a washing machine, select the delicate cycle and use cold water and a mild detergent. Do not use bleach or other harsh chemicals. Remove the fabric display promptly after washing to avoid wrinkles. Hang the fabric to dry or attach it to its display stand. Do not expose the fabric to dry heat. If the instructions recommend hand washing the display, soak it in cold water using very little detergent and wash it gently.

    Some fabrics can be spot cleaned using a mild stain remover, depending on the type of stain. Clean the stain by working from the outside and gradually work your way in to prevent the stain from bleeding. A word of caution: not all fabrics can be spot cleaned, so it is best to check with the supplier or read instructions before you begin.

    Storing the Fabric

    When storing your display, make sure the fabric is folded so that the design is inside to prevent dirt or grease from accumulating on the display image. Fold the fabric loosely to prevent creasing and store it in a dry place away from sunlight. The temperature in your storage facility should be around 40 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent mold and mildew.

    If you aren’t sure about the instructions, don’t hesitate to call us at 877 389 8645. We are equally committed to providing a great pre-sale and after-sale experience!


  • Are These Mistakes Affecting Your Trade Show Success?

    Trade shows are platforms where you can discover new clients for your products and services. Are you looking for ways to increase your trade show performance? While exhibiting at a trade show, mistakes can happen, regardless of whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a newbie. Learning from the failures of past exhibitions is one of the best ways to improve your marketing strategies. Having been in the business of selling trade show displays for so many years, we have formulated a list of common mistakes you should avoid:

    Poor Trade Show Displays

    Underselling your company with bad graphics is the number one mistake. Bad graphics do nothing to encourage visitors, which means potential clients won’t want to know more about your products and services. Exhibiting your products and conveying your marketing message through attractive fabric trade show displays is essential. A great exhibit can tell booth visitors about your business and brand image. Buy from our range of trade show displays to create a long-lasting impression with your customers.

    Wrong People in the Booth

    Inadequately trained booth staff can be a huge disappointment. Staff hiding in a corner all the time, or staff focusing on their smartphones, don’t help attract aisle-walkers to your booth. Poor staff can negatively affect your ROI and leave a bad impression with your customers. Instead, you should bring the best team to engage every passerby—you want to draw attention to your brand and services. It is vital to train staff if you want to generate a positive experience for attendees and bolster your brand.

    Ignoring Social Media Marketing

    It's 2019. If you aren’t advertising your business on social media and interacting with potential clients, you’re in big trouble. Be active on social media pages before, during, and after the event. Use social media tools to generate buzz for the event. Make images, videos, and posts about what’s happening at your trade show event. Come up with a hashtag that’s specifically used for hosting contests. Create a gallery of your exhibition’s imagesonInstagramor Pinterest to improve your online presence. Encourage people walking by to stop at your booth so they can take photographs with your branding logo. Post statuses and updates on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and be active on a variety of other social media outlets.

    Focusing on Quantity over Quality

    You may be tempted to focus on the quantity of leads rather than the quality of the leads. Qualified leads are not excited by the opportunity to win a prize or receive giveaways—they are the ones who may have spoken with you for long enough to know about your products and services. Four or five qualified leads are better than collecting hundreds of business cards from people you don't know anything about. A quality lead is the one that results in a sale. Ask open-ended questions while engaging with prospects to understand their mindset.

    These are some of the common trade show pitfalls you need to avoid. Learning from these mistakes is a key to success. Have you made any mistakes that negatively impacted your ROI? Share with us in the comment box below.
