How to Choose the Right Type of Exhibition Stand

There are many types of exhibition stands that can make your business get attention at a trade show. However, with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the perfect setup for your display. At Mousegraphics, we offer a wide range of products to help you build a successful event booth. We put together this list breaking down different types of exhibition stands to assist you in making the right decision.  

Four Types of Custom Exhibition Stands

1: Pop-Up Displays

Made of lightweight aluminum, pop-up displays have a frame that opens and closes like an accordion. In the past, the graphics were printed on hard panels that were attached with hangers and magnets and were hard to align properly. Now, your graphics are printed on fabric that attaches to the frame. Because the graphics stay attached when the frame is closed, all you have to do when you arrive at your event is “pop up” the display. Pop-ups are also a great solution for building walls and towers at your exhibition. 

To get more bang for your buck, you can even select a shipping case that doubles as a podium. Sturdy and stylish, podium cases are made of a durable hard plastic that protects your display. You can even add a graphic wrap to the case so your podium can help deliver your message. 

2: Tension Fabric

Another type of exhibition stand that is easy to assemble is a tension fabric display. To set up a tension fabric exhibition stand, you simply stretch fabric graphics over aluminum poles. Tension fabric displays come in a wide range of shapes and sizes and are very versatile. You can build custom walls, towers, banner stands, crowd barriers, tabletop displays, hanging displays, and more for your exhibition. 

3: Banner Stands

A single banner stand with vibrant graphics and creative brand messaging can help draw more attention to your trade show booth. You can also use a series of banner stands to create a wall for your display. There are many different types of banner stands for various display purposes—retractable, tension fabric, outdoor, large format, and more. You can even add banner stand lighting to make your display shine.

4: Hanging Graphics

Well-designed hanging graphics can make your exhibition stand out from a distance. Hanging displays come in a variety of custom shapes and sizes. They are typically lightweight, and easy to set up or take down. However, if you’re considering hanging graphics for a trade show or other event, make sure you check that the venue permits them ahead of time.

How to Choose the Right Type of Stand

If you’re not sure which type of exhibition stand is right for you, follow these tips:

  1. Know your venue—what types of stands are allowed? How much space will you have to set up a display? And don’t forget to check for height restrictions.
  2. Understand your objectives—decide whether your display should focus on your new products, increase brand awareness, or help you meet other goals.
  3. Decide on your event budget ahead of timecareful planning will help narrow down your stand choices. Plus, you don’t want to spend too much on your display up front and end up without enough funds for other marketing materials later on.
