What Are The Different Types Of Trade Show Displays?

Trade show displays are one of the most powerful visual representations to draw attention to your booth. With a variety of styles, functions, and shapes these portable displays can help you stand out at your next trade show.

Regardless of what your need is, trade show displays come in a variety of prices. Some are small, portable, and may cost a few hundred dollars. Others may require extensive on-site work and can cost upwards of $10,000 and more.

Choosing the right type of trade show display can depend largely on your needs. In the next section, we’ll cover some of the more popular types of portable trade show displays and what they’re used for.

Popular Types Of Portable Trade Show Displays

Some of the more popular types of trade show displays include:

  • Pop-up Display – Portable, inexpensive, and highly customizable. These are frequently connected together to create a “series effect” with two or more displays.
  • Modular Displays – These function as a hybrid between pop-up displays and a panel and frame exhibit. These are lighter than panel and frame displays and are can be re-used and reconfigured several times.
  • Panel and Frame – Arguably the most popular, this is a series of interconnected panels joined together to create a freestanding room. These require extensive on-site construction and are usually much heavier than other options.

Types Of Trade Show Booth Layouts

Booth layouts vary from trade show to trade show and will partially determine what type of display you can use.

  • A Linear Booth is surrounded by exhibit booths on both sides and or back. Most 10 x 10 booths are linear. These do have size restrictions due to the 10 x 10 nature. If you are a first-time exhibitor, a linear booth will be a great start.
  • A Corner Booth is a linear booth that is exposed to the aisle on two sides. You’ll face many of the same size restrictions as a linear booth.
  • A Peninsula Exhibit Booth is much larger and is at least 20’ x 20’ or larger. It’s also open to aisles on three sides. While surrounding layouts can cause restrictions, most of the time, you’ll have few back wall restrictions.
  • A Split-Island Exhibit Booth is a peninsula that shares a back wall with another peninsula.
  • An Island Booth Exhibit is exposed to an aisle on all four sides and is almost always 20 ft x 20 ft or larger. Since this type of layout has very few restrictions, its become on of the more popular options.
  • End Cap Exhibit Booths are made of two booths and face aisles on three sides.
