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.

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.

Tips To Get Wedding Ready

By Beachbody Super Trainer and creator of Ultimate Portion Fix, Autumn Calabrese

When deciding on a nutrition program to follow to slim down for your wedding there are a few key things to keep in mind. The first being how much time you have till the big day and how much time you have till your final dress fitting. Once you’ve had that final dress fitting its ideal to maintain your weight so that your dress fits on the big day!

Following the Foundational Fix plan of Ultimate Portion Fix is a great way to get wedding ready.

  • Start by eliminating highly processed foods from your diet, this includes, sodas, sugary coffee drinks, cakes, candy, and any other foods you might be consuming that contain excessive amounts of sugar (anything over 8 grams per serving is high). If it has a laundry list of ingredients you can’t pronounce its go to go.
  • Stick to whole foods, things like, fruit, vegetables, lean proteins (chicken, fish, turkey, tofu, tempeh, occasional red meat) and healthy carbohydrates like brown rice, quinoa, beans, potatoes, lentils and oats.
  • Watch your portion sizes. You can overeat on healthy food as well.  You don’t need as much as we tend consume to fuel your body. Ultimate Portion Fix shows you exactly how to portion out the foods that you love with its color coded, portion control containers.  
  • Balance your macronutrients. Again this is something Ultimate Portion Fix does for you.  No counting calories, carbs, protein or anything else. Fill your containers and enjoy your food knowing that you’re getting a perfectly portioned, balanced meal every time.
  • Make water your new best friend. Water is so important to the function of your body so stay hydrated, it also helps flush toxins out of your system. Make drinking half your body weight in oz of water a day your number 1 priority.
  • Practice self care. Planning a wedding can be stressful, that stress can start to take a toll on your waistline if you’re not careful. So find ways to relax like taking an epsom salt bath, getting in a good sweat session, journaling, and most importantly getting enough sleep at night.

In addition to implementing Ultimate Portion Fix and these 6 tips, load your diet with foods that support a healthy weight.  

  • Apples not only provide a healthy, natural sweetness to your diet they are loaded with fiber to help you feel fuller for a longer period of time.
  • Avocados have a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid which provides a slow burning energy source for the body.  Its been shown to fire up the metabolism and healthy fats help you feel satiated.
  • Beans are a great source of healthy carbohydrates.The are loaded with fiber and it takes our bodies a long time to digest. This again means you will feel full longer.
  • Eggs are a great source of protein. I know they’ve gotten a bad wrap in the past but they are low in calories and high in protein. Increasing protein in ones diet has been shown as a effective form of weight loss.
  • Chia Seeds try adding these little guys to a salad or smoothie. Chia seeds have been shown to help with endurance, energy and decreasing hunger. They are also high in omega – 3 fatty acids ( a good fat that we need) and protein.  

Looking your best on your special day is a big deal and can stress a lot of people out. Take the stress away, follow a program that isn’t a diet, doesn’t leave you starving or feeling deprived, has been proven to work long term for hundreds of thousands of people.  If you want a program that is effective and will have you feeling like your best self on your big day check out Ultimate Portion Fix.

Dennis Quaid is “Mr. Lonely”

MIDLAND TAPS DENNIS QUAID AS “MR. LONELY”

Acclaimed actor and singer/songwriter, Dennis Quaid, joins GRAMMY®-nominated trio MIDLAND for his most intriguing role to date – “Mr. Lonely.” Starring in the chart-topping Texans’ music video, it highlights their sense of humor and effortless vintage country style. “Mr. Lonely” marks the first release off the band’s highly-anticipated second album (Big Machine Records). Earlier this month, Variety exclusively premiered a trailer showing Quaid’s Mr. Lonely getting a little roughed up encountering some of the women from his past.

As a singer/songwriter, Quaid has hundreds of thousands of miles under his belt as a touring musician and continues to receive stellar reviews displaying equal ease with both originals and country standards with his all-star band, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks.

During a recent packed crowd at Billy Bob’s Texas, one reviewer noted how Quaid “delivered a memorable two-hour, 19-song set. The 64-year-old Quaid rushed onto the stage like a 20-year-old, and leapt into the crowd with his guitar during the second song to share some high fives, all without missing a note on his six string” (ILoveFTW.com).

Recently, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks celebrated Record Store Day by releasing their first-ever album, Out of the Box, on vinyl via Omnivore Records. Described by Quaid as “a junkyard of American music,” the A-side includes the original title track “Out of the Box” while the B-side features a rousing cover of Larry Williams’ hit “Slow Down.” Recorded at the legendary Village Studios in Los Angeles, the band’s debut album was released on CD and Digital last November to rave reviews.

On May 25, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks will open for Midland at their show in Westside Pavilion in Tuolumme, Calif.

Beabadoobee Releases EP

Beabadoobee Releases EP Loveworm via Dirty Hit Records

PRESS HERE To Listen

PRESS HERE To Listen To “Disappear”

London based bedroom-pop songwriter Beabadoobee has released her sophomore EP, Loveworm, on Dirty Hit Records. Billboard, who released a track by track of Loveworm, highlighted Bea Kristi’s “languid vocals, pointed songwriting chops and jangly, grunge-inspired sound” on the new EP, which you can PRESS HERE to stream.

“This EP Loveworm was inspired by all the music I listened to during a hard time in my life,” Bea told Pigeons and Planes who named her one of the Best New Artists for April. “It helped me forget about everything. From The Moldy Peaches to Pavement to Daniel Johnston, music was always a means of escapism for me. I wanted to make songs that could belong to one of my playlists. Something people can dance and cry to. The songs on Loveworm pretty much sum up what I was feeling at the time… love is hard, complicated and I’m pretty fragile. Sometimes it’s hard to balance that with school and music but I guess writing the songs for the EP helped me a whole lot. And I hope it helps some people out too.”

Born in Manilla and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as Beabadoobee in 2017. Her first track, “Coffee” gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days, through a fan-uploaded video. Since then, her songs have amassed millions of streams between her own self-released recordings and her debut EP, Patched Up (released via Dirty Hit) which features “If You Want To” and “Dance With Me“, and has received support from Noisey, Nylon, The Fader, Bustle and The Guardian, amongst others with NME already crowning her as one of their 100 essential artists to watch in 2019.

Loveworm Track Listing

  1. Disappear
  2. 1999
  3. Apple Cider
  4. Ceilings
  5. Angel
  6. You Lie All The Time

Mr. Popular Releases “Poison”

MR. POPULAR’S NEW SINGLE “POISON” OUT TODAY

LISTEN HERE

On the heels of millions of streams and countless questions about his identity, the Southern California singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist—with a brown paper bag on his head (who emotes with Sharpie-penned expressions)— Mr. Popular releases his new single “Poison” today.

Get it HERE via Casablanca Records.

Emblematic of his self-stylized “ADHD pop,” the track oscillates between danceable synthesizers, thick 808’s, and a hypnotic hook. It offers the perfect gateway into his wildly wonderful world and hints at a lot more to come in the near future. He’ll share the track’s music video very soon. Be on the lookout for its debut!

Additionally, “Poison” paves the way for his debut EP, which will drop in the very near future.

Adopting the bag in 2018, Mr. Popular came to life. His first independent single “Mix Up” introduced a new sound and amassed over 1 million Spotify streams in under a couple months. Meanwhile, “Fight It” ignited 2.3 million Spotify streams as he caught the attention of Casablanca Records who signed him in late 2018. Ultimately, he’ll naturally achieve the popularity his name implies through the best way possible—just being himself.

OTR Releases “Heart”

OTR MAKES HIS ASTRALWERKS DEBUT WITH NEW SINGLE “HEART” FT. SHALLOU OUT TODAY

“OTR produces complex summer tinged pop that begs to be danced to”

The Line of Best Fit

Download / Stream “Heart” Ft. Shallou HERE

View Visualizer HERE

Indie artist OTR has signed to Astralwerks, who released his new single, “Heart” ft. Shallou, today. Shallou’s searing vocals paired with OTR’s evocative piano create a poignant yet ultimately transcendent track with the indelible refrain “We get out alive/in your heart.”

Download / stream “Heart” HERE. View the visualizer HERE.

Shallou an independent artist who has earned SiriusXM #1 spots with tracks like “Lie” and “Begin” and landed on the Billboard Dance charts played “Heart” live for the massive crowd that gathered in the Sahara Tent for his set at both weekends of Coachella 2019.

Ryan, the 26-year old aerospace engineer-turned-producer behind OTR, uncovered his passion for music in 2012, when he began tinkering on a dusty, run-down piano in his college dorm lobby to break up the routine of classes and studying. Shortly thereafter, he picked up a guitar and began experimenting with Logic on his MacBook Pro. Taking an internship in Japan in 2014, he found himself living in the small town of in Kurashiki, with no friends and a major language barrier. To combat the isolation, he purchased a keyboard and a train pass and spent all his free time making music and traveling to bigger cities. When he returned to the States, Ryan moved into a neighborhood on the outskirts of downtown Cincinnati known as “Over-the-Rhine” or OTR. The once-neglected area had undergone a renaissance that mirrored his own journey of discovery as music went from hobby to career goal, so it became the ideal name for his project.

As an independent artist, OTR has released a series of singles and the 2018 EP Unfold, racking up more than 7 million cumulative streams across DSPs. The Line of Best Fit observed, “OTR produces complex summer tinged pop that begs to be danced to.” NYLON noted, “A song called Bliss has a lot to live up to. Luckily [it] achieves just that-tenfold.” Praising his 2018 collaboration with Blondage, “Cold Facts,” Ones To Watch said, “we’re confident with just one push of the play button, you will become an instant devotee.” Last week, Thissongissick premiered OTR’s remix of RKCB’s “Know Love”, and noted, “he has really outdone himself another incredible release.”

ABOUT ASTRALWERKS

Established in New York City and now finding its new home in the historic Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles, Astralwerks was the brainchild of staffers at Caroline Records who saw an opportunity for a label focused on the emerging electronic and ambient scene. Having reached a milestone of 25 years, Astralwerks has quickly become a modern, artist-first label with a true focus on nurturing talent across the electronic genre and beyond. Acting with a scalable, independent and global thinking mentality with the capability to tap into the resources of a major label, has allowed Astralwerks to retain and sign up-and-coming artists such as I Illenium, Jonas Blue, Alison Wonderland, EDEN, Sigma and Axwell /\ Ingrosso. As a testament to this pioneering approach, Astralwerks has amassed 30 GRAMMY nominations, taken home six GRAMMY Awards and had historic releases from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Swedish House Mafia, Halsey, Porter Robinson, Phoenix, Eric Prydz, Fatboy Slim and many more.
