These are existing exhibit or display stand properties, usually older and sometimes worn (though not necessarily), originally built for another purpose, available for rental or purchase. Many exhibit houses have a few of these lying about. Some exhibit houses have built their businesses on them. Just as there is nothing inherently wrong with a used car, there is nothing inherently wrong with a used exhibit. It depends upon the exhibit itself. Used exhibits may require the services of an on site labour source (show general contractor, or a labour contractor approved through show management) to set up, and often the rental exhibit provider can provided those services as part of the rental package to the exhibitor
These are the omnipresent exhibit, retail, display and presentation systems. In many ways, when people think of modular exhibits today, they are thinking of Panel & Frame systems like aluminum extrusions, which are sold (in pieces and parts) to distributors, who in turn market a range of solutions (including exhibit solutions) for rent or purchase at a variety of quality levels and price points. There are hundreds or maybe even thousands of “parts” available. In North America as an example, tradeshow floors are typically laid out with Panel & Frame products. These products are a ever-present category all to themselves. Unlike a tabletop display or modular exhibit, Panel & Frame Systems will require the services of an on site labour source (show general contractor, or a labour contractor approved through show management). You can see examples of these systems on our web pages.
