A trade show display is a graphic display device designed to be used at a trade fair or trade show. These may include table top displays, banner stands, pop up displays, flat panels displays, and other paraphernalia used to fill a temporary stall or booth at a trade fair or convention. The displays vary greatly in size, cost and complexity, but all are designed to visually represent a specific interest of the company. Trade show displays use bold images and catch phrases, in an attempt to attract visitors to their exhibit space, so that sales representatives can give a sales pitch or hand out brochures.
A trade-show booth often consists of a display designed for a wall surface, which can be a graphic image or a velcro compatible fabric, on which a wide variety of graphic images printed on substrates can be attached. These substrates include rigid or semi rigid substrates like various forms of acrylic and plastic. Trade show displays can also include structures that are suspended from the ceiling over larger the trade show booths. Exhibitors at trade shows are normally provided a 10 by 10 feet (3.0 m × 3.0 m) booth space facing an aisle, which has an 8 feet (2.4 m) high back wall consisting of 4 fabric panels that are threaded onto a telescoping aluminum pole and connected to the top of an 8′ tall aluminum pole; one located on the far right of the back wall and the other on the far left of the back wall. Two more draped walls, both 3′ high are connected from the back wall poles and extend to a 3′ high pole positioned on each side of the front of the booth near the aisle. This provides the exhibitor with a pre defined area in which to present his or her company or organization, to visitors attending the trades show event. In this space, exhibitors set up a wide variety of trade show displays, tailored to their specific need, in order to present their services
