or Modular Retail Kiosk? Which One Is Best?
Many prospective retailers and
exhibitors want to know whether they should get a modular retail kiosk or have one
custom designed to meet their requirements. To answer the question, let’s first
consider what a modular retail kiosk entails.
It is the basic product that can
be customised, expanded, or layout changed to meet your specific retail or
display requirements. Custom simply means a kiosk made specifically to meet
your particular requirements.
The custom retail kiosk is popular
because it is possible to create an exact layout and visual appeal. You can
order from various functionality options without having to consider whether
standard features will fit in the space. The height and dimensions are
according to your requirements. However, it is more expensive than the modular
retail kiosk, but it is specific to a particular function and appearance.
Modular, as the word suggests,
entails a base product from which one works. It is comprised of preassembled
parts. This type of retail kiosk can be used in just about any exhibition
setting. Whether you want to use it in store, make such available to exhibitors
in your retail centre, or want to use it at trade shows, it is lightweight,
easy to change, and features standardised components. To this end, the modular
retail kiosk is also more budget friendly.
If you are looking for exhibition
spaces that can easily be changed for various events or retailers in your
shopping mall, then the modular retail kiosk system provides superb value for
your investment. The setup is quick, so if time is of the essence, the modular
retail kiosk is the answer.
With the custom-designed option,
our designers work with you to determine specific power outlet spots,
maintenance needs, and more. It is thus a perfect fit for your requirements.
With the modular concept, the designers plan before the time to ensure easy
maintenance and optimal functionality.
If, for instance, older electronic
equipment fails with a custom kiosk setup, it may not be as easy as with a
modular design to fit a new piece of equipment. The old type of equipment may
no longer be available and you may thus have no other choice than to fit a new
piece of electronic equipment, such as a newer-model lightbox or monitor. With
the modular retail kiosk, it is no problem and quick replacement can thus be
a Hybrid Solution?
In some instances, it may even be
better to work with a hybrid of custom and modular. To this end, you can also
rely on our team of designers to customise modular retail kiosks to fit your
mall, exhibition, or event requirements. In this way, you receive the
advantages offered by both options. Sometimes, a custom design is just not
practical enough. And, sometimes, a bit more customisation may be needed to
ensure the modular retail kiosk can work with a particular brand or
We provide you with all three
options, ensuring that your display and retail needs can be met.

Benefits of Using Tension Fabric Systems for Exhibition Stands
Tension fabric systems boast a
host of features to ensure optimal functionality when it comes to using them at
exhibitions. If you plan to exhibit at Meetings Africa or the My Biz Expo this year,
make sure you have the best possible graphics and shell schemes. Below are some
of the top benefits offered, giving you an idea of why tension fabric systems
are so popular with exhibition stand and display designers.
- Easy Setup and Removal
Time is of the essence when it
comes to stand or display setup. If graphics can be installed and removed with
ease, you don’t need special technical expertise or tools. When it comes to
tension fabric systems, it is a matter of pressing the graphics into place in
the frame, which causes the fabric to tense once all the edges have been
attached. The end result is a flat surface with no creases. To remove the
graphics, simply unclip the fabric from the modular system at the edges. Fold up
and store. It is a straightforward process of setting up and removing the
Make your graphics stand out
using the tension fabric systems available from us. You can do so with small or
larger-than-life graphics. Using the tension system, all the graphics displays
are seamless without any signs of creases. Your visual displays will be
professional and eye catching for the right reasons.
- More Options with Single- and Double-Sided
Whether you only need an interior
or exterior graphics display or want to create a visual impact on both sides of
the fabric wall, you can do so with the modular tension fabric systems
available from us.
You don’t have to buy a new shell
system if you want to change your displays. Order all the graphics that you
want and then use them interchangeably according to your needs.
- Cut the Corners – Go Round with the Curving
Ability of Fabric Systems
If you want your stand to attract
attention, simply move away from the conventional cube display. With fabric systems,
you can even have curved walls, enabling you to create a silo if you want. This
is the type of creativity that can make your stand memorable.
You don’t need to rent a large trailer to move the stand to the exhibition.
When you use fabric systems, you can easily move the stand from one important
event, such as the My Biz Expo, to the next one, such as Meetings Africa, which
are both hosted in the same month. Everything in the system can be disassembled
for easy transportation. The fabric is rolled and takes up very little space.
With it also being exceptionally lightweight in design, you save on
transportation costs. You can also get carry bags or wheeled boxes for more
You can also opt for fabric light
box systems for maximum visual impact. The fabric material can be used in
conjunction with light boxes, giving you highly visible displays. Whether you
want to use this for counters, walls, or 3D structures, you can rest assured
that the tension fabric systems are versatile enough to create high-impact

Set Up a Successful Exhibition Stand
Creating “stopping power” for
your exhibition stand is essential if you want to get a return from your trade show
exhibit. Even though, by now, it is a cliché to say that first impressions are
important, we cannot stress enough how important the first moment of contact is
for your exhibition.
Your booth competes with several
others for some quality time from visitors to the trade show. Keep in mind that
the visitors want to see and do everything they can at the trade show. As such,
time is of the essence. They need to know what your exhibition is about and you
must give them a reason to detour from their stroll path to spend time at your
The stand design is thus the key
to getting the attention you crave from visitors. It must be eye-catching and
must clearly communicate what you want to say. Keep the above in mind
throughout the planning, designing, and managing phases.
Consider the factors below to
ensure a successful exhibition stand design.
Your Target Audience?
Even with the most amazing exhibition
stand design, if it fails to speak to the intended target audience, your
exhibition will fail. Focus your concept according to the wants, preferences,
and needs of your target audience. There is simply no value in attracting
visitors that are not interested in your particular product or service.
the Use of the Available Space
You pay per square metre and as such,
you will want to use every square metre wisely. If the stand can be higher than
normal, then maximise the potential of the height. You can, for instance,
display your company’s logo high for good visibility. Add a tall tower
structure or add a rotating sign. Use the space to add an arch for more
visibility. Minimise barriers or any types of obstacles that can prevent
visitors from entering and exiting the booth, as you don’t want bottlenecks.
for Maximum Readability
Don’t try to write an essay. When
it comes signage at exhibitions, bold, clear, and less are worth more. It isn’t
necessary to use complete sentences. Use single words if you can convey the message
effectively. Rather use fewer words than try to convince with sentences. Single
words can be eye catching. The secret is to use action words.
Equally important is the font you
use. If you think about traffic signs, you can agree that streamlined fonts
rather than fancy ones work better for optimal visibility and readability from
a distance. The text must be placed higher up on the exhibition stand, so as to
prevent people from blocking the view.
Is Better Than Text
Choose images with your target
audience in mind. You want to get the message across in the fastest and most
effective way possible, and selecting the right graphics and images is the way
to do so.
Stand Material to Convey Your Company Culture
The selection of booth materials
should be done with your company’s culture and the industry in which it
operates in mind.
