Spring is officially here and we can look forward the start of the outdoor events season.

When exhibiting outdoors you need to plan and prepare for your event just as you would for an indoor show. The main difference will be the type of display equipment you use.

You can take your standard exhibition equipment with you but most products, such as pop ups and pull up banners, are designed for indoor use only. So if you do use them outside you risk damaging them beyond repair, especially if the weather is inclement.

For an outdoor exhibition or show it is best to have display equipment that is specifically designed for use outdoors. You can buy banner stands, flags and signs which are weather resistant and will withstand high wind speeds. If you exhibit at outdoor events regularly then it is worth having some outdoor displays in your exhibition kit portfolio.

Many outdoor display products can also be used indoors so if you choose wisely you can have a product portfolio that will work indoors and out – ideal if your budget is tight but you need display equipment for both scenarios. 

Here at XL Displays we offer a wide range of outdoor displays suitable for all types of events and the Great British summer weather!
