Companies compete against numerous other exhibitors at trade shows and with the advances in technology the stakes have also been upped. One of the most effective ways to get quality sales leads, excellent publicity, and one amazing sales turnaround is by using display stands that are portable, lightweight, and modular in design.
Portable display stands offer a cost effective way to display at various exhibitions with the same stand and are normally sturdy, and thus able to handle the occasional knocks that go along with setting up display stands. If not for the convenience offered, you should at least consider the economical characteristics of such stands before opting for custom semi-permanent stands.
Semi-permanent stands are great if you have the budget for such displays, but most companies want to save money while also having maximum exposure at trade shows. Consider the many types of portable display stands on the market and how you can combine them for easy to set-up and move displays.
Pop-ups for instance, can come complete with graphics, neon lights, and the required curves and can be installed under 15 minutes. Roll-up banner stands can be set-up within three minutes and can be carried in carry cases. They are perfect for the display of logos or to place emphasis on a particular product. Brochure stands are necessary at any of the stands simply because the sales consultants cannot spend their time handing out brochures when they are supposed to interact with visitors. The brochure stands are essential to ensure that the sales material is displayed in a professional manner.
Add to the above, panels and modular booths and you have a completely portable stand that can be used over and over again at various trade shows.

High Impact Custom Designed Retail Displays
For those companies that want to stand out from the crowd when it comes to opportunities to market either products or position the corporate brand, custom designed retail displays and banners offer the perfect solution to their individual needs. These displays are usually used to increase the impact of point of sale marketing initiatives; however these versatile display units can be used in any environment where the company interfaces with customers and clients. These opportunities for retail positioning include trade shows and conventions, as well as sporting and cultural events, as well as product launches and road shows.
The custom designed retail displays are especially useful where the product message needs to be disseminated to as many people as possible, such as the aforementioned road show. The light weight and portability of the custom displays make them ideal for this use as they can be transported from event to event with very little effort. These retail display units are also extremely easy to erect so they should present no problem to even experienced marketing employees and junior marketing personnel who are usually found erecting the display units during the road show.
Custom designed retail displays are also extensively used at the point of sale, where the highly visible nature of the displays can serve to differentiate products from the competition. With supermarket shelves rapidly filling with competitive products sourced from all over the world point of sale displays are rapidly becoming indispensable marketing tools for the South African manufacturer. These point of sale custom designed retail displays can be manufactured to designs specified by the customer.
New manufacturing technology and printing processes mean that the designs available to the customer are now almost limitless. Banners which are traditionally an extremely important part of any retail display can be produced in almost any size and the new printing processes mean that colours are even more vibrant than ever before. The client can specify unique designs that incorporate such elements as the corporate or brand logo into the custom designed retail displays. All that is required to ensure a one of a kind display is the supply of material in a suitable high resolution form. This graphic material will ensure that the end product is of the best quality.
The custom graphics can be incorporated into industry favourite designs of retail displays, such as those featuring tear drop banners or the industry standard flag banners. For added impact hanging banners and full display solutions, which are used extensively at trade shows and conventions can also be tailored to meet the individual requirements of the organisation.
Custom designed retail displays offer extremely attractive returns on the initial investment by the company. These retail displays are characterised by their low cost and quick production cycles. The hard wearing vinyl material that is used in the manufacture of the retail displays is extremely hard wearing and can be used over and over again.
Companies like Scan Display specialise in manufacturing custom designed retail displays that conform to the unique requirements of the individual client. They can offer advice based on years of experience as to the correct solution to all of the clients’ design needs when it comes to various custom display options.
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
Portable hybrids are an alternative to traditional portables and offer several advantages to companies seeking either to downsize from an island display or step up from a traditional portable. Hybrids, by their very nature, are easily customizable since they are designed using aluminum extrusion, tension fabric, and modular components. Are they custom exhibits? No, but not every show or every budget requires a custom exhibit. Contact Scan Display at +27 11 447 4777 for more information about Portable Hybrid Displays and our other products and services.
