Fabric displays have a long life and can be used many times. With the incorporation of the latest technology and new styles, these displays have become a striking advertising medium, offering a great return on your investment.
Initially, fabric displays were not flexible and couldn’t be used repeatedly. Modern fabrics provide that option as they are more durable. You can replicate designs and images on the fabric. It is even possible to create 3D effects on tension fabric. With these displays, you also have a wider choice of panels.
Fabric displays are a great option for trade shows as they come in different sizes and can be personalized easily. Free hanging displays are great for large areas. If it is a small area, then options like a table top fabric display are the best.
Fabric can also be used to make pop up displays or free standing banners. These displays are mounted on aluminum frames which are light and still give the display strong support. Tension fabrics can be layered, manipulated and twisted to give the desired effect. They can also use panel snaps, Velcro, buttons and other methods of fastening to hold them together. These methods also allow you to remove them when necessary.

Display exhibits like fabric displays and pop-up displays play an important role in a trade exhibition. Apart from these you also need to have personnel at your stall who can explain what is being displayed to the visitors. If the staff employed at your trade booth is not trained well in handling customers, then all your investment on sourcing latest display equipment is wasted.
Training your staff
Experienced people who have previously been part of successful trade shows can train your booth staff on the various subjects like marketing strategies, sales skills and customer relations. You can also hold demonstrations for the staff about the advantages of your products.
The primary goal of any business is to sell its products or services. The basics of marketing at a trade show are similar to any other method like online and direct marketing. Train your staff to scour potential clients from the visitors to your stall. You can also invite your existing customers to the stall to encourage repeat sales.
Practicing good etiquette
At your trade booth stall, ask your staff not to smoke, drink or gossip among each other as it creates a negative impression in the minds of the potential customers. Be warm and friendly in your approach to avoid intimidating visitors. Do not turn down any visitor to your trade stall as they can be potential clients. Make sure there is a staff member who is always present at the booth to respond to visitor queries. Keep manuals, pens, brochures of products etc in sufficient quantities. You can also train the professionals at your booth on the display exhibits at your stall like fabric displays, pop up displays etc so that they can easily deal with any problems that they may face with the display.

Fabric displays have become popular options at trade shows, and for good reason. They offer more flexibility in creating appealing graphics in comparison to panel and pop-up displays. They are easy to set up, transport, and maintain.
But exhibitors often do not make use of the full potential hidden beneath these fabric exhibits. Here are a few things you should keep in mind to get the most out of your fabric display.
- The most basic rule is to make sure your company name and logo is clearly visible even from a distance. A snazzy fabric design won’t help if people don’t know the name of your company.
- The message you are trying to convey should also be there on the display. Decide the advertising text or graphics the display will use in advance. Also choose the type of fabric that will best showcase the text/graphics.
- Photographic images look great with the translucent look of the fabric. Decide the printing process required to make the graphics stand out.
It makes a lasting impression on someone who visits your booth if you give them a brochure or a take away sample of your product. Also, it is always a good idea to use light or music to enhance the appeal of your trade booth.
Fabric displays can really have a great impact on your performance as a company in the show. Make sure you follow the basics and don’t spoil the impact of a good fabric display by going wrong in other areas.
