Multi-Use Portable Trade Show Displays

Get The Most For Your $$$

Many of our customers purchase portable displays mainly for use at a trade show, but have you ever thought of utilizing the same display in other ways as well. We realize not all companies also do other marketing events such as open houses for real estate companies, pop up shops for retailers, red carpet events or other B2B networking events. Have you considered maybe you aren’t doing these other events because your trade show display doesn’t accommodate for the multi-use?

Below are some examples of how you can use our portable booths for other events besides trade shows. If you already own one of our portable booths but want to get more use out of your portable display between trade shows, feel free to reach out and chat with us for ideas to get creative!

Multi-Use Portable Trade Show Displays

Lounge, Discussion Area

Tension fabric display options are an excellent solution for a pop up lounge or discussion area. With the ever changing trade show trends, exhibitors are becoming more creative with their booth spaces, incorporating this trendy new option to stay relevant and be remembered. Tension fabric displays allow you to really show off your brand in new innovative ways.

By simply adding a retractable banner stand, counter or table cover, you’ll easily add depth to your trade show booth. But these add-on items could also be utilized in your office entrance or used at smaller events, such as a job fair or other community events, when trade show season is not in full effect.

Step-n-Repeat, Photobooth

Another trendy marketing piece for trade shows or events are step-n-repeat backdrops. Having an easy to assemble and durable tension fabric backdrop will cut down your time and effort during set up. Your high-quality, glare free logo graphics will make a great backdrop for photos at your various events.

These logo backwalls are great because even if you aren’t necessarily selling anything, you can still enforce your brand visually for any industry gathering or company party. Tension fabric step-n-repeat backwalls are the perfect solution even when the show is over – simply set-up in your office entrance for all visitors to enjoy. Tip: consider where you’re setting up and also time of day. Night time events may require some light features, and you can always upgrade to a lightbox option.

Fundraisers, Local Events, Job Fairs

There are many advantages to a tension fabric display including portability which makes packaging your trade show display smaller, easier, lighter and may result in shipping cost savings and storage costs. Another advantage is the ability for your fabric graphic to be washed, dried, ironed, steamed, folded or rolled for storage. You’ll also love that there is no glare on the fabric because of the smooth, non-glossy fabric finish which is perfect for an indoor trade show or high lit areas.

Sampling Bars, Product Shelving

Portable displays allow you to set up quick serving bars for food or beverages. Our Advertising Tent is perfect for indoor or outdoor use and made to be resilient to wear and tear with continuous use by the frequent exhibitor. All you have to do is focus on promoting your product, service or brand.

Sampling bars or counters add style and function to your trade show booth space by allowing you drive your message, product or service right up front. Use any of our effective point-of-engagement presentation counters to give demonstrations, sign up attendees for notifications, emails or giveaways or even have attendees purchase your products right then and there. These trade show counters and podiums give your exhibiting booth space more opportunity to drive home your brand or land more sales.

 

Adding shelving to a trade show pop up display is most definitely a game changer when it comes to product display during an event. Having the ability to display your product and have it available for the consumer to have a hands-on experience could certainly seal the deal.

Final Thoughts

Portable booths give you the freedom to set them up yourself without incurring labor fees. Even a large 20ft tension fabric display can be set-up by 2-3 people quickly and easily without tools.

How to be a Trade Show Workaholic

Become a better trade show exhibitor with our Pro tips
Simple tasks you can incorporate into your next trade show, conference or marketing event.

A workaholic can be defined as a person who compulsively works hard and long hours.  If you’ve ever prepared for, been in charge of, or walked the floors while at a trade show then it’s pretty obvious a workaholic is what you need to be when planning for a trade show.

Even though all of those long hours have been put into the preparation leading up to the trade show, you can’t forget there’s still the actual day or days of the event.  Now the fun truly begins when you need to turn from the educated trade show planner who knows what drayage is to booth space worker.  And so the workaholic in you continues with these simple tasks you can incorporate into your next trade show, conference or marketing event. 

Who should work your booth

You’ll want to choose the right people with the right knowledge.  For example, if you are recruiting for sales then make sure both HR and some sales staff are attending.  If you are pushing your wholesale line of products, then you’ll want the wholesale sales staff there and not the IT guy who knows nothing about sales or your wholesale product  lines.  

Once your staff is chosen, you’ll want to make sure they are prepared to actually work the tradeshow booth.  Buy an audio book to have the staff listen to or even just a simple YouTube video or two can go along way in refreshing the staff on how to look, act and feel the days during the show. A trade show ultimately might be about sales, but it’s also about building and retaining relationships.  So make sure they put the best attitude on!

Getting people into your booth

It’s really quite simple.  Be friendly, make eye contact and smile.  But more specifically ask people one of the following things:

(1) “What brings you to the show today?”  

(2) “We’ve got ‘X’ being raffled off today and just a business card will get you entered.  Would you like to join?”  

(3)  Have you… fill in the blank with what question is best to ask attendees to see if they qualify as your ‘hot target’ or not.  

Example: Our client, Custom Service Solutions, figured out through their past shows that asking the simple question, “Do you use compressed air at your shop?” quickly qualified attendees on whether or not their one-of-a-kind product MiJet would be useful or not.  Think about what hotpoint question you can ask to get more potential attendees to stay in your booth space!

up your swag game

Your staff’s most valuable job next to getting attendees in your booth space is giving away your branded promotional items.  And the easiest way to do this is to have your staff circulate through the show giving out swag.  Our best advice is to make your swag an easy to carry, memorable and so useful they will want to keep it and use it. Listen, everyone gives away pens – okay they are useful but definitely not memorable. How about something like silly putty in an egg that will surely put a smile on their faces or the faces of their kids. Definitely consider the cost though. If your swag is expensive like a stainless steel water bottle or a sampling of your own product, then save it for the ones who will truly gain from your giveaway.

Do have a raffle

Collecting business cards is crucial at a trade show.  After all, it’s your mailing list for follow-ups.  And the best way to collect business cards is to hold a raffle.  A great idea is to have raffle off an item or items that are the ‘it’ item of the month.  Something that is so super-cool everyone will want to stand in line just to put their card in your raffle bowl.  The busier your booth space is the more other attendees will want part of the action.  Of course, don’t forget the after show raffle work too.  Send out an email thanking them for participating and softly let them know they didn’t win, but invite them to join your mailing list or an upcoming webinar you’re hosting.  

Impress upon show etiquette

Do NOT ever sit in your booth space! Remember no one cares if your feet hurt or how tired you are.  Even if there is a chair in the booth, leave it empty.  Improving your trade show image is also important and standing up, looking ready for anything is one of them.  Plus, if you were not the one who planned this booth space, be respectful of the time and effort that went into it by not sitting.  The point of a trade show is the face-to-action so get out there in front of as many people as possible. Your company is paying hundreds to thousands or even tens of thousands for you to be there and a trade show is ultimately a short period of time.
