Trade show booths bring in a large number of potential customers, but at a cost. The most expensive component of your trade show booth is your display unit which could be a pop-up display, fabric display, modular display etc depending on your preference, budget and the product you want to promote. Pop-up displays, which are the most common display units used in trade shows, can be economical if you plan and choose carefully.
One way to spend less on the display unit is by purchasing it in the off-peak season i.e. well in advance of the trade show. Another option is buying a used trade show display from websites like Craigslist.com or eBay.com. Making an online purchase of the appropriate pop-up display unit and getting it printed separately can bring down your trade show costs, though the process will require both time and effort.
The most expensive display units are the customized display units bought from a vendor. Instead of purchasing custom pop-up displays, buy a regular display unit and mould it creatively to suit your product design. That way, you make the best use of your creativity and save a lot of money too. A customized display also helps your booth stand out in the trade show.
Pop-up display scaffoldings that are purchased online cost a lot lesser. But make sure you choose a reliable vendor. You should also take shipping costs into account when deciding between buying online or from a local vendor.

Pop-up display units are available in various sizes and can be used in different configurations depending on how you want to design your booth. One of the best places to set up your pop-up display to make a strong impact on your customers is in the corners. Apart from using these as the main display, you can also line up smaller pop-up display units as accessories and fill in the entire exhibition space creatively.
Before purchasing a pop-up display for your booth, compare prices from different vendors. But remember that a cheaper pop-up is not always the best option. An expensive pop-up display that gives longer warranty would be ideal if you want to use it for a long period of time. If you need it occasionally, you should consider the option of renting it.
Pop-up displays are compact, easily portable and require not more than one person for set-up and dismantling. The graphics can be easily changed or modified according to your needs, without replacing the entire unit. A pop-up display unit is one of the most preferred displays for trade shows as it is also economical and durable.

The display may not be new, but you can change the display graphics to make it relevant to your company’s service or product. When you select a printer to print the graphics on your pop-up display, make sure you choose a company with the necessary expertise, since your display’s appeal lies in what is printed on it.
Last but not the least, if you want to lower your trade show costs, you can rent pop-up displays instead of buying them. Once the event is over, you can simply return the display. This way, not only will you save on display cost, you will also not have to pay for shipping the display to the trade show location.
