Trade Show Displays

7 Different Styles of Trade Show Displays
Trade show displays are the most powerful visual presentation, and they come in varying styles, shapes, and functionalities. The displays make trade shows more interesting than digital marketing and online promos because of the creativity in them. They are easy to set up and attract attention to the available booths. Prices depend on the design and the display creator. The challenge that exhibitors experience is choosing the most appropriate designs. Any design can work as long as the company’s brand and services or products are presented well. Below are seven common styles.

Pop Up Displays
Easy to set up, pop up displays are portable, cheaper to make, and you can customize them according to your preferences. They are designed like a solid-looking wall, but you can add mural panels to make your display more appealing or a LED screen rental.
Pop ups are popular, and they can be used as graphic murals to send a specific message such as a newly launched product or slashed prices.

Panel Exhibit
A panel exhibit is created from panels and turned into a solid looking wall. They look like pop up displays but have an addition on top to look like booths. Most of them are large enough to be used as the back wall.
They can be used for large exhibits such as backlighting, for product display, and serve as booths for your counters. Bigger panel exhibits are more expensive.

Table Tops
You can have your products printed on display and attached to a frame with metal fasteners or magnets on the top of a table. Table tops are usually about three-feet high.
When attached on top of the table, they can be about five-feet tall. They are among the easiest displays to set up. What’s more? Those tables are mostly provided by the trade show.

Island Exhibits
If you are looking for trade show exhibits that have a bigger room, island exhibits are a perfect choice. They are usually open and all four sides and measure 20’ x 20’.
The type of tradeshow determines how the structures will be hanged. The promotional units with varying size can be positioned on top of the island exhibit. Before selecting this trade show display, ensure that a professional has crafted your floor plan.

Graphic Tents and Canopies
You have probably seen this everywhere, especially during food exhibitions. The good thing about them is that you can modify a standard canopy tent into a graphic tent and save big.
Logo canopies are normally displayed in grocery stores, special events, festivals, or even trade shows. The benefits of using this kind of stand are that it’s easier to use and it encloses the space appropriately. It also displays your graphics on the back, top, and side walls. Most of these tents operate the same way.

Truss Designs
Truss systems fit better with large booths. The systems help to provide structure and allow many designs. The shape of the truss can be customized to fit anything within the allocated space. You can also hang displays and other elements.
Truss exhibits are mostly used for stages, utilizing shelving, custom flooring, and other design features. You can be the center of attention with a truss display if you have large graphics.

Pipe and Drape
Pipe and drape are a bit complicated when it comes to setting up. To form a booth, you connect hollow metal tubes at the corner and support them with upright bases. The pipes are connected to create an outline of your booth space.
The fabric drape is then hanged along the pipe where exhibition visitors can visualize. Most trade show vendors usually set up their exhibition inside the booth and their graphic display is inside while others do the same but display graphics are hanged on the pipe or drapes.
You must be wondering right now what you should choose. Graphic tents and canopies serve all purposes and are more available, but you get to choose which suit your business. After you make a choice, hire a contractor to design your trade show display and transport it to your stand.

American Apparel Fall 2018 Collection

American Apparel announces the debut of its Fall 2018 Collection. With a curated selection of brand new arrivals and returning iconic favorites, the collection includes an array of denim, tees, leggings, skirts, hoodies, and outerwear in a wide range of colors and prints, available exclusively at AmericanApparel.com.

Khairan Majid, American Apparel’s head of merchandising, says the collection “offers an inclusive and refreshing take on fashion basics with longevity. We wanted to break down barriers with gender-neutral silhouettes and a wider size range. The warm, neutral color palette and beautiful luxe fabrics elevate this range, while still keeping the price point accessible.”

The season’s offerings include the anticipated return of the Riding Pant. This highly-coveted style is a high-waist silhouette with the perfect amount of stretch, now with an updated waistband and improved fit. Available in Black, Navy, Silver Birch, and Lieutenant, the Riding Pant retails at $68.00 with sizing from XS to XXL.

Another returning favorite for fall is the bestselling Tennis Skirt, an American Apparel icon and back-to-school essential. This pleated skirt is rendered in lightweight Gabardine polyester, with a wide range of colorways including classic plaid, retailing at $48.00.

The season welcomes the arrival of American Apparel’s first-ever outerwear collection, beginning with a lightweight, year-round Trench Coat – the brand’s interpretation of the classic English silhouette. The Trench Coat is available in Black, Vintage Khaki, navy, Lieutenant, Black/Navy, and Lieutenant/Mauve, with sizes ranging from XS to XXL, retailing at $98.00. Also on the outerwear docket: a Bomber Jacket, with reversible construction for a modern update, retailing at $118.00 in Black/Navy and Lieutenant/Mauve. Rounding out the outerwear highlights are the slick Duckie Puffer and Duckie Raincoat, available in Black, Freesia, Mauve, and Palace Blue from XXS to XXL (priced from $88.00 to $98.00). Polar Fleece also makes an appearance, offering superior comfort and next-level softness, with a Pant and a Quarter Zip pullover, available in Black and Palace Blue with contrasting trim, from XS to XXL, retailing at $46.00 and $48.00.

American Apparel’s Fall 2018 collection also launches a new corduroy collection: 100% Cotton styles that are soft to the touch, incredibly comfortable, and vintage-inspired.

Corduroy pieces retail from $58.00 to $88.00, with sizes ranging from XS to XL.

Texture plays a key role this season, as American Apparel expands its Thick Rib collection. Thick Rib is a medium- weight cotton-poly blend designed to atter and shape the body, as evidenced by the new Soccer Jersey, Bodysuit, Crewneck Dress, Midi Tube Dress, Crop Turtleneck, Bralette, and Flare Pant. Thick Rib colorways are Black, Star White, Lavender, Freesia, and Maroon; sizing runs from XS to XL and styles are retailed from $28.00 to $44.00.

Denim plays a key role this fall, with a Denim Pocket Skirt ($58.00) in XS to XL; a Button Flare Jean in Vintage Blue ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; a Crop Pencil Jean ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; and a new men’s fit: the Straight Jean, made with 14-ounce denim for an authentic vintage feel. The Straight Jean is available in a Dark Wash and Medium Wash, retailing at $68.00 from size 30 to 34.

And in classic American Apparel tradition, fall includes a wide variety of premium basics, from iconic tees, tanks, and pullovers to hoodies, bodysuits, shorts, and much more. Mix-and-match foundational pieces for everyday wear and easy layering – for workouts, weekends, and everything in between. Adds Majid: “We believe in individuality and self- expression, and I think this collection embodies both.”

American Apparel NUDES Collection

American Apparel is pleased to announce the debut of its new NUDES collection, launching today, September 4th, exclusively at www.americanapparel.com.

The “S” in NUDES is underlined to emphasize the inclusive spirit of the campaign: There is no singular version of the human experience, and no singular definition of “neutral.”
