Pop Up Stands are an industry standard for exhibition stand displays. They are such a popular option because they are portable, very simple to set up and give maximum backdrop coverage.

We provide free artwork checks and advice. All of our pop up displays are dispatched within 72 hours on receipt of print-ready artwork, with next day courier delivery. We offer an express delivery service for an extra cost if you need your pop up stand quicker.

All XL Pop Up Stand bundles are now supplied with LED lights as standard, giving our customers the benefit of low cost exhibition stand lighting.

Pop Up Display Stands

We offer a wide range of pop up stand styles and designs. Our best-selling pop up stands are our standard sized curved pop up stands or straight pop up stands. However, we also offer midi pop up stands, which are 1.8m high for smaller display stands, and jumbo pop ups, which are 3m high and ideal for a large stand space.

Our Pop Up Exhibition Stands are supplied with LED lights as standard, ensuring our customers benefit from low cost lighting for exhibitions and events. Our 3x1 pop up stands are supplied with 1x LED light and power cable whilst all other pop stands are supplied with 2x LED lights linked using one power cable, therefore minimising the number of sockets required for events.

Pop Up Displays can be used to create large scale exhibition stands which are still portable and easy to assemble. See our collection of Linked Pop Up Stands & L-Shaped Pop Up Stands to see what can be achieved by cleverly joining pop up stands together with linking panels. We have a quick dispatch range of pre-configured exhibition stand spaces, including 2m x 2m, 3m x 3m, 4m x 4m and many more. If you can't find a Pop Up Exhibition Stand to fit, we can design and build one to your specific space. Our bespoke service includes a 3D render and design, a dedicated account manager, a test build and industry-leading after-sale service support.

For an alternative to standard printed graphic panels, why not try stretch and tension fabric display stands with a fabric pop up stand? Our Formulate, Hop Up stands and SEG exhibition stands all utilise the same kind of pop up frame but have dye sublimation printed fabric graphics instead. This creates a seamless exhibition backdrop as the fabric is printed in one piece.

Pop-Up frame sizes are worked out with box sections. For example, most standard pop ups are 3 box sections high and then either 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 sections wide, providing you with 3x1, 3x2, 3x3, 3x4 or 3x5 popup sizes. The jumbo pop up stands we sell are 4 box sections high.

With the ability to go in the back of any car, the Pop Up Display Stand is the ultimate large format portable exhibition display stand. All our Pop Up Displays are modular and supplied with a tough, wheeled Zeus transit case. All the components fit into the case to enable easy transportation and storage. Pop up stands can be set up within 10 minutes by one person, without tools or special training. No additional contractor costs are required.

Pop Up Exhibition Stands are so easy to assemble. The frame simply 'pops up' and is held together by magnetic stalks in the centre. Magnetic bars are fitted to the frame to give added strength and stability. Printed graphic panels with magnetic tape on the reverse simply attach to the frame.

We print all of the graphic panels in-house to a high quality photographic standard print. Artwork is UV digitally printed onto 100% polyester heavyweight (550 micron) stoplight media. We print with environmentally friendly water based pigment inks (no solvents).

We only sell genuine Ultima® Displays Evolution Quick Plus™ pop up stand hardware, all UK stock, designed and manufactured in the UK. Print, finishing, graphic design and manufacturing are done in-house at our premises in Peterborough UK. We never use cheap and poor quality imported hardware or homemade direct copies. Our Pop Up Display Stands are backed by an industry leading 10-year warranty.

We have an in-house graphic design studio able to complete full graphic and exhibition stand designs to your requirements. We can either design the stand from scratch to your requirements or amend your existing artwork if you don't have professional design software such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.

You can buy your pop up stand online via our easy online ordering process. Alternatively, for more information on our pop up stands please contact us or call our sales team on 01733 511030.

Frequently Asked Questions

'What's a Pop Up?' is a question we often get asked. Pop up stands are a printed backwall display, designed to make a big impact at exhibitions, trade shows and marketing events. Pop up display stands are portable, easy to assemble and come with custom printed graphics and exhibition counter case as standard. Available in a range of frame sizes unto 5m wide, these stands are ideal as portable displays.

Pop Up Stands are constructed with a scissor action, lattice aluminium frame that can be folded open and closed. Each section is connected and the frame folds down to a small size allowing easy transportation. This allows for a lightweight construction but with high rigidity when open with the mag bars and graphics in place. The frame simply 'pops up' into position, hence the name. The mag bars (which hold the graphic panels) are installed and the graphics are hung off the nodes at the top of the frame. It is an easy display solution to install and can be done by one person within minutes.

The Pop Up Stand is the most successful display solution available. Pop Up Displays have been used since the turn of millennium and are the best selling solution of the last 20+ years. The convenience of fully printed graphics, portability, price and the ability to give exhibitors a large custom backdrop in an easy to install and transport solution is the winning formula.

Pop Up Stands start at £339 for tension fabric pop up stands and £375 for the best selling 3x3 pop up display. Pop up banners with retractable pull up graphics start from £49.

Price includes: Frame, printed graphics and exhibition case. You can option LED lights and a pop up counter conversion kit, which converts the wheeled case into a podium stand with a graphic wrap and solid wood counter top. This option is ideal for receptions, meet and greet areas and exhibition stands.

Pop up stands are a relatively inexpensive way to create a booth or trade show backdrop and are portable, usually self assembly and are significantly cheaper than commissioning a custom made exhibition stand.

Pop Up Stands are available in 5 different sizes and two shapes - curved and straight. The smallest display stand is the 3x1, then 3x2, 3x3, 3x4 and 3x5 for standard Pop Up Stands. This nomenclature can sometimes be reversed, i.e. 4x3, 3x2 depending on manufacturer but has the same meaning. We use height first for consistency. 

Please note the numbers do not correspond to exact height or width in meters but is a designation for the number of 'box sections' within the Pop Up Stand. The larger the number, the more sections the display has and the wider it is.

Dimensions of Pop Up Stands:

3x1: 2225mm (H) x 1240mm (W) x 306mm (D)
3x2: 2225mm (H) x 1970mm (W) x 306mm (D)
3x3: 2225mm (H) x 2700mm (W) x 306mm (D)
3x4: 2225mm (H) x 3435mm (W) x 306mm (D)
3x5: 2225mm (H) x 4170mm (W) x 306mm (D)

Pop Up's are also available in mini / midi and jumbo height. These are 1.8m high or 2.9m high respectively.

'3x3' refers to the number of box sections on the frame, not the height and width as a measurement. This is confusing to the newcomer as it is not 3m x 3m, as you would assume.

By adding box sections the stand can be increased in size. The Pop Up Stand is a modular exhibition stand and by adding or taking away sections can be increased or decreased in size.

The 3x3 Pop Up Stand dimensions are 2225mm high (2.5m) x 2700mm wide (2.7m) and is available as a 3x3 curve or 3x3 straight stand.

Pop Up Stands are self-assembly display stands that can be quickly set up and packed down at an event.

Remove the frame from the carry bag and have it standing up on the floor. Hold the outer edges, one in each hand and start to separate the frame. It will fold out in a concertina direction. As you are expanding the frame, place on the floor and extend all the way out until you hear a click. This click signifies the magnets locking together and the frame is then fully folded out.

Ensure the 'nodes' and 'pips' are at the top. These are the hanging clips for the graphics. The most common mistake we encounter is Pop Up frames being assembled upside down. By checking the clips are at the top, you know it is the right way up. XL Displays Pop Up stands have levelling feet on the bottom, which can be screwed in or out to level the stand on uneven flooring. These should always be at the bottom.

Once the Pop Up Stand frame is set up, attach the magnetic bars (Mag Bars) to the frame. Check the pointy ends of the mag bars are located in the channels and all mag bars are installed. You will need 6 mag bars on the back of the frame (3 each side) to curve the graphics around the back.

Once the mag bars are in place, unroll the graphics and start hooking them over the nodes at the top. We recommend you start from the left and work right, similar to the direction you read. Start with Panel 1 and attach all other panels in order.

Once all the rollable graphic panels are in place you can adjust the panels by gently pulling panels down to ensure perfect alignment and a seamless backdrop display.

XL Displays has an extensive range of Linked Pop Up Stands and L Shaped exhibition stands that use Pop Up Stands. View our range of Linked Pop Up Exhibition Stands

Pop Up Stands are modular so you can add to your existing system if required. Please contact us for information and we can help you build your perfect display.

Pop Up Stand exhibitor kits are supplied with LED lighting as standard. We upgraded from Halogen to LED in 2018. All our Pop Up Systems are sold with LED lights.

LED is far superior to Halogen. They run much cooler, consume about 70% less power and the LED diodes last 100 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.

Two of our LED lights can be run from one cable, reducing socket and power requirements at exhibitions and event halls. Event organisers charge per socket and wattage output, so LED lights will greatly reduce the cost.

For a seasoned event attendee, one person can set up a Pop Up Stand in 5 minutes or less. If this is your first time using Pop Up Displays, allow yourselves 10-15 minutes and follow the instructions until you get familiar with the product. A full set of printed instructions is included with every order.

If you require any assistance, please contact us or phone 01733 511030

Please download the artwork templates from the relevant product pages as the dimensions vary per Pop Up system ordered.

Templates are set up as PDF's but we can supply in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator (PSD and Ai files)

If you require any further advice, our in-house graphic design studio can answer any questions you may have.

'D End’ refers to the end panels on a Pop Stand display that link the front side to the rear. It allows the visual appearance of a seamless backdrop from most angles when viewed from the front and sides.

The 'D' end attaches via magnets to either edge of the frame and links back to the rear, also attached to the magnetic frame bars. It will curve the panel and give a seamless look. When designing your artwork for the 'D' end panels, use our guides to ensure all artwork elements are front facing and not hidden around the back.

You can send your artwork to us via email if it is less than 10mb, or upload via our WeTransfer account:
