Fabric Display Stand Sizes Explained | 2m, 3m, 4m & 6m

The size of a fabric exhibition stand is largely dictated by the type of display you choose; for example, a fabric pop up exhibition backwall isn’t available in the same number of sizes as a straight tension display.

In turn, this then affects which stretch fabric exhibition stand is most suitable for your event and marketing campaign.

If you have a 6m exhibition stand area, a 2.4m fabric display won’t effectively fill the space and you will need to consider larger options to make the most of your exhibition experience.

We’ve compiled this article to help you quickly and easily identify which fabric display stands will best suit your marketing campaign and your event based on size.

After all, trawling through pages of tension fabric display stands knowing you only want to look at stands of a certain size isn’t an effective use of your time.

2m Fabric Displays

Two metres is typically the smallest sized exhibition stand space an event venue will offer you – but that’s not to say that 2m is the smallest fabric display stand size.

The Formulate Monolith fabric banner stand is the smallest tension display we provide. At 2.3m high and in sizes starting at 600mm wide, this portable fabric banner stand is a seamless alternative to a roller banner and is designed to work in conjunction with other exhibition stand display solutions.

In terms of fabric exhibition stands, 2.4m is the smallest size outside of our tension banner stand range.

You can choose from a 2.4m straight Formulate stretch fabric exhibition stand or the Formulate curved tension fabric display, as well as more unique shapes like the Formulate serpentine backwall which has two undulating curves and the Formulate vertical curve fabric display stand which has a convex vertical axis.

Being smaller in width means that all of our 2m fabric display stands can be used just about anywhere – be it in a shell scheme booth, a floor-only exhibition area, a reception foyer or in a retail window display.

3m Fabric Displays


The most common sized exhibition stand space has always been three metres, so it comes as no surprise to find that almost all Formulate fabric displays have a 3m variation.

Just like our 2.4m stretch fabric displays, 3m wide Formulate tension exhibition stands are available in a wide variety of shapes, including straight, curved, serpentine and vertical curve.

4m Fabric Displays

Four metre-wide fabric displays are an excellent choice for medium sized event spaces.

Only available as a straight tension display, the Formulate 4m fabric exhibition stand makes the perfect backwall for retail environments and business conferences thanks to the non-reflective display polyester.

5m Fabric Displays

Our five metre straight Formulate fabric exhibition stand is the ideal width for creating a professional press backdrop or photography background at media events.

It works particularly well with step-and-repeat patterns as the enhanced width provides ample space for several business logos without looking overcrowded.

6m Fabric Displays

Freestanding fabric exhibition stands max out at 6.1 metres wide.

You can choose from the same shapes as with the 2.4m and 3m tension displays; giving you plenty of flexibility in terms of configuration.

Six metre Formulate fabric stands are commonly used at public media events and as backdrops for industry seminars, but they can also be used in floor-only exhibition stand spaces at a range of events.

Over 6m Fabric Displays

Although there isn’t a singular stretch fabric exhibition stand spanning over 6m wide, we do supply a range of reconfigurable fabric display stand solutions that can be adapted to suit a larger area.

Modulate™ fabric exhibition stands feature patented MagLink™ technology within their tubular framework which allows you to align an infinite number of displays to create a bespoke configuration directly tailored to your event.

Alternatively, our Tension Fabric Backdrops are discounted bundles designed to suit floor spaces up to 8m wide.

With the exception of our Hop Up fabric display bundles, all of our fabric exhibition stands come with double-sided printing at no extra cost.

This means whether it’s a 600mm Formulate Monolith tension banner or an 8m wide L-Shaped Modulate™ fabric back wall; you will always have maximum visibility and edge to edge marketing exposure regardless of where you’re exhibiting.
