will surely know – or at least have an idea – of the differences between pop up
stands, banner stands, and more. But if you are new to trade shows and
exhibitions, it may be a bit difficult to understand what exactly these terms
refer to and how they can be different from each other. Here, then, is your
essential guide to pop up stands, banner stands, and more: how to differentiate
one from the other.
Some trade show and exhibition terms you should
There are some key
terms which you may come across when you begin participating in trade shows and
exhibitions. Needless to say, knowing what these terms actually mean can help
you make highly-relevant decisions, especially when it comes to maximising your
trade show or exhibition space.For instance: a shell scheme basically refers to
a standard exhibition stand. Floods, on the other hand, are a form of light
fixture which can effectively highlight a large space. You may also come across
the term ‘tracker’ – this is simply the machine which scans as well as prints
labels for visitors.
But going back to
exhibition stands and pop up stands, here’s what you need to remember:
The basics on a banner stand
A banner stand is
simply a portable unit used for display which is designed and created to carry
a message, graphic information, or branding. It is a general term for banners
which are mounted on a stand, and it can refer to either a pop up stand or an
exhibition stand as well. Banner stands are distinguished by being easy to
assemble and lightweight, hence their use in exhibitions and trade shows.
The basics on a pop up stand
A pop up stand stems
from a standard banner stand with some key differences. For instance,
pop up displays or stands are often
wider compared to a standard banner stand.
Pop up banners can have widths between 2 to 3 metres. Pop up exhibition stands are quite
convenient if you have a bigger exhibition space, as they can also serve as a
background wall that features your products and services.
There are some
technical differences as well – with
pop up display stands, the mechanics are
more similar to a grid-like system, and you also have a choice between stands
with straight edges or stands that are curved as well as
wide pop up banners.
The basics on pull up and roller banners
You may also hear the
terms pull up and roller banners, which are simply alternative terms for the
abovementioned banner stands. However, a pull up banner is where the graphics
are ‘pulled up’ from the stand’s base, whilst a roller banner is where a roller
system or mechanism is used so the graphics can recede into the stand’s bottom
