Different types of trade show booths setup

Choosing a great trade show booth is the key to putting your best foot forward at an event. You want to stand out from the crowd –and your booth needs to draw attention and bring your company’s brand to life.

Unfortunately, many people overlook the importance of a booth’s setup, not just its design. You want a booth setup that functions well and allows attendees to walk around your exhibit freely. 

Although the COVID-19 pandemic certainly put a cramp in most trade shows, things are up and running again. If you want to tap into the power and value of these events, you don’t just need a trade show booth – you need one that suits your specific needs. 

At Art & Display, we’ll help you make the most of any marketing event with the right booth setup. We offer trade show displays, exhibit rentals, and custom booth designs. 

To jumpstart your planning, let’s look at the different trade show booth setups and when you’d want to use them. 

1. Portable Modular Exhibits

These booth setups are simple, durable, and budget-friendly. Although they are pre-fabricated exhibit booths, they come in many different shapes, sizes, and configurations. 

Portable modular exhibit booths have interchangeable parts that provide endless customization possibilities. Their benefits include: 

  • Plenty of configuration options
  • Easy to set up and tear down
  • Lightweight and easy to transport 
  • Customizable for your brand
  • Interactive exhibits that can utilize technology

Portable modular displays are made up of different components, including walls, counters, shelving, tables, or other types of displays. They’re an excellent option for companies that want a booth setup that’s versatile and inexpensive.

2. 10 x 10 Trade Show Booths

These booth setups are versatile and one of the most popular options at Art & Display. Although they are one of the smallest booth setups you will utilize, they are great for the budget-minded customer who wants a fully customizable option.

Some events may have limited space, and this is your only option. A smaller booth will not hold you back. It can help you shine and set your brand apart from the competition. Here are some of the ways that your booth can be uniquely yours: 

  • Unique graphics
  • Backlit fabric displays
  • 3D logos
  • Use workstations and LCD displays
  • Quality flooring to stand out

10 x 10 trade show booths are a favorite because they offer a unique design that’s focused on your brand – front and center. They won’t break your budget and provide easy setup and tear-down options.

A 10 x 20 booth setup provides your company with a significant trade show presence at an affordable cost. You’re at a trade show to make a significant crowd impression. This size booth will do that for you – and then some.

This booth setup is a natural step up from a 10 x 10 booth and offers a solid middle ground. It gives you room for your attendees to walk around and see all your displays. It even gives you the space to host demonstrations and to network.

Lighting is a way to make your booth eye-catching at any event. A 10 by 20 booth allows you more room to use lights to focus on your brand and message. By using eco-friendly LED bulbs, industrial light fixtures, sconces, or even light boxes, you’ll be able to set the mood to match your overall theme.
