Most often businesses choose to buy ready made fabric displays to showcase their products at trade shows and similar events. These displays come with a standard structure that is created by the manufacturer, covered with fabric. You can provide the artwork or design that you want printed on the fabric display portion. Using fabric displays, you can display the logo, company or product information prominently to attract attention of visitors.

These can be designed to cover the entire wall or just a portion of it to give an effective backdrop to the rest of your visuals and displays. A combination of these fabric display options can create a stunning visual presentation, no matter how limited your booth space may be.
