Highly Effective Exhibition Stands


In a highly competitive business environment one of the opportunities for any company to allow its products to stand out from the competition is when it takes part in an exhibition or trade show. If the organisation wishes to differentiate its product offerings from the many other products that will be vying for the attention of the visitors to the exhibition then it must rely on the uniqueness of its exhibition stand. Today exhibition stands are available in almost any configuration, the only limitation being the budget available to the company and its marketing department as well as the space that is available at the exhibition or trade show.

Highly effective exhibition stands rely on a mix of different attributes in order to attract the interest of the visitors to the exhibition, trade show or other marketing event. Many of the exhibition stands that are currently available have components which are designed to attract attention such as audio visual effects. Traditional exhibition stands can be constructed of a variety of different materials such as wood or wood composites or mixes of polyurethane based materials and nylon and glass and plastic. Many companies choose to design their exhibition stands in close consultation with the manufacture in order to ensure that the exhibition stand is unique and highly visible to potential customers. There are also a number of different standard shell schemes that are available.

These shell schemes represent extremely good value for money and are ideal for use as exhibition stands. Even a standard off the shelf exhibition stand can be made unique through the addition of other display components such as flags and banners.

Display Units

Display Units Sell Products

There are many advantages to using display units to sell your products and one of the most obvious is that they are totally mobile; simply pack up the unit and move it to a new venue or show whenever it is needed there.   These merchandising units also act as mini shop fronts and can be parked in a shopping centre where you do not have an actual shop – usually at a far lower fee than renting shop space.  Just keep in mind that shopping centres may have rules pertaining to the style, size and type of display units you may use.


Most of the time, display units are manned by a single person; so the unit should be designed to offer the best possible security.  Typically, these units are wheeled for easily moving them around, but they can also be secured to the floor.  Usually, all the lids and surfaces can flip closed and locked to form a secured unit when unattended or when closed for business.  Products can also be displayed behind transparent perspex or glass windows to discourage theft.


Display units are offered in several configurations, depending on what you want to use them for, and what the shopping centre’s regulations may prescribe.  The height and number of shelves differ and the unit can incorporate several lockable storage spaces too, for stowing stock.  There is a specific area where the minder of the unit will reside, with a special space for the cash register.

The near side of the display units where the minder sits may be open, but the far side may be closed up by the aforementioned windows for security reasons.  This is because one person cannot always keep an eye on people on the far side of the unit, especially when there are many people around.
