Trade show displays are branded walls, banners, kiosks, or sections of a booth. The graphics on them usually contain your business logo, company slogan or product images.

Trade show presentations usually involve playing a visual, audio and text media presentation projected onto a large screen. This usually includes information about a brand, product, service, or mission statement.

PowerPoint is one of the most common apps used to create them. However, some of them are also made from Prezi, Canva, Powtoon, Emaze or other software.

A trade show system consists of elements such as graphics, multimedia, and samples. It may involve making sales transactions on-site. However, many vendors at these events choose to just distribute information and allow customers, potential employers, partners, or clients to contact them when ready.

You can host consumer, industry or collector shows for both potential clients and customers. They will usually include product or service displays and logo graphics. Some industry trade shows also include a job fair for recruiting new hires.

At a trade show, you might see banners, tabletop signs, A-frame signs, kiosks, and media screens. A trade show booth may or may not also include a traditional, four-legged product table. In the case of corporate recruiting, it might have sign-up forms.

Trade show booths exhibit your products and services to potential customers and partners, and they portray a professional and polished company image. Trade show displays might sit next to a table, where you would set out your products and information for exhibit participants to see. Otherwise, the display walls or kiosks themselves have shelves, rings, hooks, or slots on them for showcasing products.

There are many different types of trade show displays available, from simple pop-up banners to elaborate custom-built stands. Your exhibition could also have post and panel signs and lighted signs or product displays. Pamphlets, business cards, posters, flags and more also make up a trade show display.

The purpose of trade show displays is to catch the eye of potential customers, partners, and clients in as little time as possible. You can play a video in the background for people to see while others are waiting to speak to you. However, your visual graphics and booth design should entice them to talk to you directly without much effort on your part.

Trade shows are almost always worth it if you know what your business goals for the trade show are. For instance, you can generate leads and sales.

Otherwise, you can also make an appearance at them to deliver information and increase brand awareness. You can even use your trade show booth to invite people to sign up to receive announcements of when new products are available.

Choosing the right display for your company will depend on your budget, the size of your booth, and the type of products or services you are displaying. Single tabletop signs, sections, and banners may only cost you $200 or less, but A-frame ones may total a price of about $1,000-$2,000.

Decorating an entire booth, including back wall installation or a lighted product display, may cost you $2,000-$5,000 or more. High-tech booths might run a bit more, estimating an expense of $20,000-$30,000. The average price per square foot equals about $127-$161.17.
