How To Set Up Exhibition And Pop-Up Displays

Mar 1, 2008
Imagine being asked by your boss to take charge and supervise an up-coming event/exhibition, but you only have a month or two to prepare and are rather inexperienced in setting up something as big as this. Your heart starts to pound out of your chest and the only redeeming quality of this task is that you will be allocated a small team of people to help you, so you have more scope to delegate task and alleviate some of the stress, which has fallen upon you.

This is a frustrating, stressful and often tiresome job for some people. However, there are professional event organisers and exhibition professionals who do this for a living; although they may have experience, it is just stressful as it is when they first began on this journey.

The pressures of having everything running smoothly, topping up on resources and making sure, you have all your risk assessments covered is a constant job. Anything that goes wrong will tumble on top of you. Whether to use pop-up displays or graphic projectors, through to providing different kinds of canapes and refreshment beverages everything must appear seamless and problem free.

First of all those who are looking to set up an exhibition, small town event or a large company event, will need to know what to hire and which exhibition equipment to use to have the most effective responses. Some prefer to use lightweight and do-it-yourself pop-up displays; others prefer heavy, high quality expensive stands with impressive graphics display.

There are different types of banner stands and distinguishing each one is a good approach to setting up good display. Most of the stands are relatively easy to set-up; however, there are agencies that do build them from scratch for a small fee.

If you want to have a specific graphics design on each banner stand, then the best option is to liaise with the designers on a daily basis to find out exactly how the image will be displayed. This will require monitoring, as it would become a costly procedure if you have not taken closer attention to the designing process and the image presented is not what you wanted.

The different types of stands can include roll-up banner stands, counter-top displays, outdoor banner stands, hanging banner stands, pole and display banner stands. Other extras can include lighting, glass box shelving, tabletop pop-up displays, light box kit, table throws, literature holders, lecterns and podiums. All of which may be a necessity depending upon the size of your exhibition.

Setting up the stands can be as simple as piecing together the frames or pulling out the retractable stand. Quick fix pop-up display stands can come with pop-frames, magbars, front hangers and kickers and D hangers. The frames can be opened up and lock into place using the locking arms. The magbars are usually placed vertically into the frame and can snap into the nodes of the frames magnetically.

Each display panel can then be hooked onto the hangers and kickers, to be fitted onto the frame. The advantages of having stands like these are that they are not time consuming to set up, they require very little people to put together and they are so lightweight that they can be compressed into a small carrier for easy transportation.

Therefore if you are looking to run and organise a large event, it is worth looking into the exhibition equipment as well devising a plan of action. Most of the exhibitions impress visitors by the display images and the equipments used to market the company and their products.
