Linked Pop-Ups

Pop Up Display Stands are one of the most popular and best-selling exhibition stand products on the market. They are so popular because they are a great value, portable, easy to use and look very professional. Pop ups come in a range of standard sizes but are also a cost-effective option for creating bespoke exhibition stands.

Exhibitors often assume that a bespoke exhibition stand will only be attainable with a large budget but this is not necessarily the case. The humble pop up stand can be cleverly linked together to create large format, custom built displays which will wow customers and visitors.

Linked Pop Up Exhibition Stands

How Does a Linked Pop Up Stand Work?

Linked pop up stands are very easy to use and are set up in the same way as a standard pop up but with ghost graphic panels to join the frames together. Clever and creative design and artwork will mean that your visitors will not believe your display consists purely of pop up stands.

No matter the size of your linked pop up stand, each pop up included will come with:

  • Hardware – frame and magnetic bars
  • Printed graphic panels
  • Wheeled trolley case
  • Spotlight(s)
  • Beech top for case
  • Graphic wrap for case

This means that all the components of your bespoke stand will fit into the carry cases provided, making even the largest exhibition stand portable and easy to transport.

The aluminium frame is a ‘scissored’ lattice system which ‘pops up’ and clicks into place and magnetic bars attach to the frame. Each printed graphic panel has magnetic tape on the back which holds the panel in place on the frame. To link pop ups together there are linking graphic panels which join one frame to another. All visitors will see is a professional design with no clue as to the hardware set up behind.

We print all pop up panels in-house in full colour to a photo quality standard. Once printed, each panel is laminated with a crystal matt laminate which is non-reflective. Laminating panels gives them tear, scratch and crease resistance meaning longer lasting artwork.

The wheeled cases can be transformed into portable counters or meet and greet points for your stand. Simply add the beech top and graphic wrap for a professional promotional counter. 

What are the Linking Options?

Linked Island Pop Up Stands

Pop up stands can be linked together in various configurations – L-shape and U-shape are popular to fit into a shell scheme space. But it is possible to create all sorts of designs including back walls, islands, T-shapes and cross shapes, using both curved and straight pop ups.

We can create a linked pop up system to fit any size exhibition stand space. The kits we offer online will fit stand spaces from 2m x 2m right up to 12m2 and everything in between. These kits include everything you need for the exhibition stand and the graphics are printed with your artwork.

However, if one of these exhibition stands isn’t quite what you are looking for then use them as inspiration to see what can be achieved with pop ups and contact us for a bespoke quote.

To enhance your linked pop up exhibition stand you can add accessories and other display options. Each pop up comes with a case which can be converted into a promotional counter but if you want more then you can add literature holders, iPad stands, printed flags, portable counters, roller banners, hanging display structures – there are so many options to make a linked pop up stand truly unique to you and your exhibition needs.
