Enhance Trade Show Booth - Backlit Displays

Portable SEG fabric display booth systems have recently been popular amongst competing expo industry manufacturers. Once a manufacturer launches a newly-engineered product line, other suppliers within the industry are beginning to replicate the design and functionality within a few months. This situation is making it difficult for many exhibitors to purchase a truly unique display booth. Unless an exhibiting company incorporates full custom fabrication into a new booth design project, small to medium size exhibitors will find it difficult to create a perfect eye-catching trade show display that’s within budget.. However, recent advancements in LED lighting and SEG fabric technologies are being incorporated into standard display systems, making portable backlit trade show displays now the most sought-after booth enhancement option available in the exhibition industry.

Backlit Trade Show Displays

Backlit Displays are the ideal modern exhibitor branding solution for standard inline booth spaces and larger island exhibit booths. Exhibitors can combine multiple double-sided LED modular light box SEG fabric booth walls (example shown above). In addition, display booth designers are integrating LED backlit structures into various layout configurations that include flat backlit circular hanging disc signs, large 12′ to 16′ tall square and circular LED graphic light towers, free-standing portable LED backlit graphic counters and new LED illuminated – elevated event flooring. Furthermore, apart from its ability to enhance marketing booths, Backlit Trade Show Displays are becoming increasingly popular in the commercial sign industry. In retail markets, Outdoor LED signage and interactive LED digital signage are becoming common branding options in commercialreal estate, retail market and hugebranding facilities like museums, airports and big outdoor venues.

Portable backlit displays have recently been the rave of the moment in trade show booth designs. Thisis markedby a sharp drop in the price of the modern LED technology, where LED trade show backlighting has witnessedwidespread attention in the past two years. Illuminateddye sublimation graphics printed on premium opaque fabric materials like our premium “TriFab”, which significantly enhances the image and colorquality through modern ‘High Definition’ large format printing or HD dye sublimation quality printing. Also, a plummet in the wholesale price has been the primary reason behind the recent emergence of backlit trade show displays.

Want to grab the audience’s attention when they walk by your booth space?  Placing a 4’w x 8’h Modular edge-lit LED light box stand in the front of your promotional floor space will do the trick!  Use these displays in an inline booth space or in the front corners of an island booth space.  The modular LED light box displays are available in six different standard frame sizes with a single sided graphic or double sided graphics.  If one of these four standard sizes doesn’t work for your booth, let us build a completely custom size.  Floating seamless SEG fabric graphic monitor mounts, quick attaching brochure holders and floating light box display product shelving that instantly attaches to the modular frame using magnet connection, are just a few standard backlit display stand accessory enhancements that Indy Displays keeps stocked and ready for expedited delivery!

Backlit Table Top Display Enhancement Options

Indy Displays top-selling portable backlit exhibit wall is the brand-name Pliko modular LED “edge-lit” fabric light box display. This tool-less assembling modular 10’ x 10’ SEG backlit fabric wall, is one of the few portable exhibit solutions that can easily be setup and dismantled by one user, making it the easiest custom modular LED light box display to manage available on the market. The creatively engineered Pilko black powder coated aluminum free-standing single-sided or double-sided SEG graphic display frame, simply packs down in 1-flatpack wheeled hard case that can be affordable shipped standard UPS or Fedex Ground, making Pliko the lightest and most minimalistic LED edge-lit backlit display stand in North America.

Indy Displays’ modern LED backlit display solutions create stunning SEG stretch fabric graphic mural illumination, without graphic hot-spotting or fabric panel wrinkling. The term “hot-spotting” refers to internal light shadows visible from the front side, which are created by poorly configured internal light box hardware or uneven light distribution. These issues are commonly seen on cheaper low-cost backlit display alternatives that include direct ink jet printing on the topside of thin fabric materials and improper light bar hanging or LED light strip placement.

The Pilko ultra-portable LED edge-lit light box free-standing sign wall remains one of our top-performing backlit trade show display. However, the emergence of the hybrid SEG fabric backlit pop up display (released in late 2017) has quickly become our #1 low-cost alternative to the well-known brand-name Pliko light box display. Unlike Pilko, the Hybrid SEG backlit pop-updisplay promises an even more portable and user-friendly booth setup and dismantle. The new SEG backlit pop up display system is a hybrid spinoff system of the traditional Burst tension fabric backlit display, except with much better graphic attachment components, 100% wrinkle free SEG fabric panels and sustainability. This hybrid frames can be reused by exhibitors for years and can also reconfigure into large backlit display stands and different SEG light box booth wall structures.

Up until 2017, our top-selling backlit trade show displays were the Pliko ultra-portable LED edge-lit light box display and the traditional Burst fabric backlit pop up displays. However, this year the Indy Displays innovative team added the new hybrid SEG backlit pop up display product line. Unlike our long time best-selling Burst backlit pop up display system, the new NEXT! SEG hybrid backlit pop up display and our next generation LED illuminated SEG modular pop up system offer simple user-friendly setup similar to the Burst display, plus an all new hybrid light box frame configuration! Now enjoy light box brand and logo illumination with your portable backlit pop up system without the worries of possible fabric graphic wrinkling (common fabric display issue that occurs after the user doesn’t properly repackage the display kit).

Drone Technology for Trade Show Marketing

March 18th, 2018 Comments off

trade show drones

When you have a trade show display, you need to make every square inch count, because you don’t get that many of them. Ten feet by ten feet, that’s all you get. Possibly twenty by twenty feet, if your company is willing to shell out the big booth space rental bucks. In a sea of trade show displays, it can be a struggle to stand out and get noticed by prospects, especially when your brand is only visible inside a limited floor space.


If business professionals want to really stand out, they can’t simply adjust one or two things here and there, they need to reframe how they approach common problems. So, what if, instead of a mere hundred square feet, you had access to the whole showroom? That is exactly the kind of capability drones provide you at a trade show. When the ground is full, look to the air. Trade Show Drones provide a unique way of overcoming space limitations, as well as shattering the old way of doing things. Drones are unmanned arial gadgets that capture real-time views of conference meeting and convention hall space. 


Drone technology provide professionals with a new dynamic in treading the trade show waves. Drones provide unparalleled digital advertising opportunities, innovative access to customer data, and that special “wow” factor tech marketers are always chasing. Event drones can also help with exhibition hall logistical issues. How many times have you dealt with show services (union labor or show decorator) misplacing, losing or delaying your display booth delivery? Convention halls get extremely messy during show move-in dates. Aerial drones can be used to locate packages and trade show crates by searching aisles and storage areas.

The uses for trade show drones at exhibitions, conferences and outdoor events are limited only by the the pilot’s imagination. The most straightforward use is creating a moving billboard advertisement. Instead of stationary free-standing signage at the booth, exhibitors are using pairs of drones to fly billboards through the convention hall, taking the advertising to their customers. Since humans are normally drawn to movement, and drones are new enough to still be a novelty, this is a great way to grab eyes. While there are prototypes for digital billboards retailing for upwards of $20,000, drones can modernize traditional printed banners for a much more reasonable cost.


Exhibition drones also provide marketers an exciting new way of garnering consumer and prospect data. Drones are already being put to use by municipal authorities for crowd monitoring and control, and marketers should take notice. Gone are the days of roaming the convention hall floor guesstimating the size of competitor crowds and intuiting what is working and what isn’t. In mere seconds, a drone can provide a real time, bird’s-eye view of a trade show audience. This innovative technology enables marketer to see exactly where the crowd is drawn and how long they linger within a particular location. Drone software provides an exceptional way to capture and analyze data about the quality of specific exhibiting campaign tactics. Using data analysis software tools, companies can turn previously qualitative, intuitive insights gleaned at trade shows into quantitative data and integrate it into their overall marketing strategy.

Perhaps the most humanistic benefit to using drones as advertising tools is the fun factor they provide. Trade show drones are a unique novelty and really quite amusing. Marketers that invest in this technology now will get the infamous “early-mover” bonus. One does not have to be a marketing guru or “growth hacker” to imagine show displays making use of the interactive nature of drones.


Whether it is as simple as hovering it a few inches off the ground, or as monumental as virtually allowing participants to soar through the host city while standing within a
ten by ten foot booth space, drones foster attendee engagement. All of this interaction and attention, influences more visitors to engage with sales representatives.


There has never been a better time to bring trade show drones and other exhibition booth technology into your overall marketing plan. If properly integrated, trade shows are a great way to show customers, employees, and stakeholders how much energy and goodwill your company offers. When an innovative company makes strides to rise above the competition, it can create a valuable positive impression. Drone technology isn’t the end-all-be-all but with the right people and strategy in place, drones can take advertising campaigns to the next level.

4. AGAM Eco-Friendly Hybrid LED Lightbox Displays. These increasingly popular green trade show displays, continue to catch our online shopper’s eyes, when browsing through our website while chatting live with our team. All eco-friendly modular backlit’s are very similar to our standard Custom Modular LED Light box Displays. We consider our “green” lightbox kits, to be Hybrid Booth Displays, with their eco-friendly components, and AGAM recyclable aluminum frames. Like our standard kits, AGAM eco-friendly display frames can reconfigure into larger backlit island exhibits or smaller version, such as a 10′ x 10′.

Like most of our LED trade show light systems, the Eco System lights will last for many years, and consume a fraction of the electricity that standard trade show flood lights do. Simply connect the LED light strips with magnetic strips, that already come assembled on each strip and inside each vertical extrusion column.

3. Burst Backlit Pop Up Displays. We have really enjoyed our industry partner Optima, and the quality Burst Backlit Booths they keep helping us produce at such a high level weekly. The Burst is a well known portable display brand-name, being it was one of the first tension fabric pop up displays in the industry, when it was introduced over 10 years ago.  The backlit version of the Burst, includes a large HD printed graphic on TriFab fabric (top quality fabric material used on all premium backlit trade show displays).

Trifab
is heavier than the standard tension fabric material and more 0paque, preventing the displays’ frame hardware and light bars from being obviously visible. The pop up is finished with a seamless white back cover, that attaches securely with industrial strength hook velcro. The Backlit Burst is available as an 8′ x ’10 Flat Fabric Backlit, 8′ x 10′ Curved, 8′ x 8′ Flat or Curved as well. Indy Displays also offers a 5ft curved backlit table top version as well.

2. Custom Modular LED Lightbox Displays. These backlit displays have been widely used for 3 to 4 years, but have absolutely exploded in the past 12 months. LED edge-lit SEG displays and other modern trade show displays, have a significant edge over their counterparts. Complicated Truss Systems and environmentally wasteful completely custom wood and laminate panels exhibits, are starting to get looked down upon as a waste of marketing dollars and more importantly leave behind a large carbon footprint. Ready to order in 5 or more stock frame sizes, bring a custom stylish feel back to your booth space, without overpaying a dated and overpriced large custom house.

New this year, Indy Displays now powders coat modular aluminum frames! Show up to your next event, exhibiting with LED trade show lighting that will be illuminating your TriFab graphic murals, finished with SEG technology, and matching LED lightbox pedestal counters to complete the fully modern exhibit space.

1. Backlit Pliko Portable Light Box Display. The last two years have been record setting for the Pliko Light Box. Despite extremely poor marketing and dealer support from it’s supplier, The Pliko system stands on its own and sells its sell. Truly the only ultra-portable modular LED lightbox display, The Backlit Pliko Display offers the exhibitor both portability equal to our Burst Pop Up Display, combined with the same premium LED internal track lighting system, that always produces an even light distribution throughout the TriFab mural and preventing evening the slightest hot spotting.
