Cost-Effective And Reusable Exhibition Stands

Although ‘freedom day’ has been delayed by a few weeks while the government pushes on with the vaccination programme, it hopefully won’t be long before we are back to something resembling pre-pandemic normality; and this means the return of larger-scale events and exhibitions. While such events hope to welcome returning crowds, set-up and rules will inevitably have to be updated in line with whatever social distancing measures are still in place at the time. So, if your business used to regularly take part in conferences, exhibitions or even sales events, it’s time to start assessing your existing display materials and analysing whether they will still work for you in the ‘new world’ of post-pandemic exhibitions and events.

Initially, events and exhibitions are likely to be on a smaller scale, with more rules about how your business stand can interact with potential customers, as well as much more regulated crowd control measures - and it’s very likely that the rules themselves will continue to evolve over time in line with whatever local or national measures are required at the time to keep the virus in check.

With this in mind, if your existing exhibition display set-up is large-scale and complicated to set up, you may find it a challenge to adapt to the changing circumstances. This is why we suggest evaluating your existing displays to see if they give you the flexibility you’ll need in this brave new post-Covid world. Portable, reusable, reconfigurable and flexible display stands are a wise investment. By choosing such a display, you are future-proofing your business against whatever changes and regulations you might encounter. 

If you are ready to update your display stand set-up with more cost-effective and reusable solutions, continue reading for our most popular and flexible display stand solutions.  

1. Pop-Up Display Stands

Pop Up Stands are a popular option, particularly in this changing events climate, because they are portable, very simple to set up and give maximum backdrop coverage. Precisely because they are so easy to assemble and deconstruct, they are the ultimate in reusable exhibition stand design - and they’re also incredibly affordable for the amount of coverage they offer.

Pop-up stands vary in style, size and coverage; so within our extensive collections there’s bound to be the perfect pop-up for your business. Aside from our standard ranges,  jumbo pop ups (which are 3m high and ideal for larger spaces).

We sell a range of pre-configured exhibition stand spaces, including 2m x 2m, 3m x 3m, 4m x 4m and many more - but if you can’t find the perfect Pop-Up stand configuration for your business, our manufacturing capabilities allow us to design and build one to your specific specifications. Our bespoke service includes a 3D render and design, a dedicated account manager, a test build and industry-leading after-sale service support.

All of our Pop Up Exhibition Stands are supplied with LED lights as standard. Whether your design supports 1 or 2 LED lights, we connect them using a single power cable, minimising the number of sockets you’ll require at an event. Since many event organisers charge per socket, this clever design can help to minimise your set-up costs.

Our personalised pop-up display graphic panels are all printed in-house to a high-quality photographic standard using environmentally friendly water-based pigment inks (no solvents). We always use 100% polyester heavyweight stoplight media which is then laminated using a matt crystal laminate. As a result, the panels are scratch and tear-resistant and can be wiped clean.

Pop Up Stands can be used again and again, new graphics can be purchased to refresh your display stand with a new marketing message. Simply update the graphics and use the existing frame, lights and case.

2. Fabric Exhibition Stands

Fabric exhibition stands are an excellent choice for a flexible display stand design as they come in a range of shapes and sizes to suit any exhibition space. 

Our large-format fabric exhibition displays are manufactured from a strong yet lightweight 30mm tubular aluminium frame finished with a high-quality dye Sublimation printed one-piece stretch fabric sock which simply slides over the frame and zips closed at the bottom. 

The Dye Sublimation Fabric Printing process creates a washable, crease resistant and fire retardant printed textile. The water based ink is sublimated directly into the fibres of the fabric at high temperature via a Monti Antonio Calendar for a bright, eye-catching, high-resolution display which will not fade, peel or crack and a professional, seamless finish with no joins, panel lines or creases. 

We only use a 100% polyester fabric for the display panels. This material is lightweight and machine washable, making it an excellent long-term solution. As polyester can be washed, reused and recycled, it’s also a very environmentally friendly option for an event display stand.

These Formulate & Tension Fabric Backdrops are lightweight and portable and offer a modern, eye-catching alternative to the more traditional PVC Pop Up Stands and Banners. Each fabric stand is supplied with a sturdy carry bag for storage and transportation; plus, they are easy to assemble. The frame's tubular parts are clearly numbered; all you have to do is match the corresponding numbers and click them together to build the stand. 

As well as floor-standing fabric displays, we also sell Custom Printed Fabric Tablecloths to finish your stand in style.

For all of our personalised printed event display stands, 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.
