Six pointers to help make your trade show a success!

February 12th, 2014 Comments off

Follow these six tips to help make your next trade show more worthwhile and increase the return you get out of each show.  Attending shows doesn’t have to be a mystery anymore use these points below as a roadmap to guide you through the experience.

1.   Keep track of your ROI – Make sure your leads generated (or goals) outweigh the cost of the show.  To help reach your goals, try to contact potential leads before the show and set up appointments with them to ensure you’re getting quality time with decision makers.  If nothing else, the pre-contact will direct them to your booth and make for warmer conversation.   As with any form of advertising you have to look at the ROI or ROG (return on goals).  Have the mindset that having a booth is an investment.  The more you do to help your investment, the better your return will be.  Don’t be that company that gets a booth space, puts zero thought into the display, sits back and expects business to walk right up and introduce itself.  It might happen but we wouldn’t bet on you.

2.  Become part of the show – Most trade shows or conferences have a keynote speaker and several other presenters.  If you can’t manage to get on the main stage or become a presenter, all is not lost.  Come up with some sort of event at your booth to help get word about your company out there.  This will generate more leads but will also help to incorporate your company into part of the overall event.

3.  Leads are great but appointments are better – Try to have reps get appointments instead of leads and you’ll be surprised at the results.  To further that point, aside from having goals try to work in a competition amongst your team to see who can generate the most, leads, appointments, business, whatever applies the most to your situation.  Keep your booth space fun and make winning worthwhile.

4.  Be a solution not a pest – This might seem contradictory to the point above but it makes sense if your reps are doing it right.  Try not to make people feel like they are being sold while spending time at your booth.  Always try to present your company as consultative in nature.  You want to come across as being an expert in your field but also being THE solution to a problem, not a pest.  It helps to have your best reps in your booth space.

5.  Don’t forget about your neighbors – Network with the other vendors and where applicable see if you can share leads with each other, assuming it isn’t a competitor.  If your company was able to generate 250 leads and your neighbor generated 250 leads, then together you’ve generated 500 leads, remove some of the overlap and your contacts from the show still grew by a large number.  If nothing else, a good connection may lead to referrals down the road.  After all, these events are to generate contacts, business, and traffic.

6.  Make your booth space unique – Design your booth space to separate you from the other companies exhibiting around you.  If your booth looks like the one to the left and right of it, leads are much more likely to pass by.  You want prospects taking notice of your company and being intrigued by what you have to offer.  With so many eyes upon your company, these events are not the time to second-guess your trade show display.

iPad Kiosks Stands Should Be Part of Your Display

February 5th, 2014 Comments off

iPad Kiosk Stands

Are you currently using an iPad or tablet as part of your business?  Imagine the opportunities that would present themselves if you were able to use one in your trade show booth.  Many successful exhibitors are now using these devices to further interact with clients.  One option is to simply have the iPad at your booth.  Another option is to make the iPad part of your display using an iPad Kiosk Stand.

Benefits of using an iPad Kiosk:

  • Professional look
  • Security
  • Branding


Professional Look

Our featured iPad kiosks all have a classic and professional look to them.  While most people are familiar with tablets, they are not familiar with them as part of a display.  This can leave a lasting impression that your company is cutting edge and ahead of the curve.  We try to leave no stone unturned in the science of trade show displays and we believe the more you have at your disposal during client interaction the more successful you will be.  Having a iPad kiosk stand as part of your display will give you that power while keeping your booth space uncluttered.  Some models even allow you to incorporate traditional marketing materials on the kiosks stand, such as literature racks and counters.


The benefits of being able to use a tablet are numerous but it will do you no good if it disappears during the show.  One way to ensure that your tablet doesn’t go missing is to incorporation into the display itself.  If the iPad can’t be incorporated in the kiosk then it comes with a lock case that allows you to keep your tablet under lock and key.


Certain kiosks give you the ability to add branding.  This allows you to tie your booth space together and add depth while keeping your logo or company name as visible as possible.  If you desire the clean sleek look then simply order a tablet kiosk without branding to get the look you desire.

December 30th, 2013 Comments off

In the past, trade show booth rental options were very limited.  Your only options were generic displays that hindered you from the branding impact you needed at to stand out from the competition.  But limited options is a thing of the past.  In addition to popup display rentals, you can now choose from a large selection of custom modular displays that can be modified to fit your needs.  Indy Displays offers turnkey display rentals that give you the custom look you require along with the money-saving benefits from renting versus purchasing.

In addition to the large selection of trade show booth rentals, Indy Displays will provide affordable graphic design and setup/teardown if you are exhibiting in the Indianapolis area.  With a display rental, you can avoid all of the expenses of ownership including maintenance/repairs, storage, exhibit management, and storage.  Rentals can save companies up to 45%.

Here are a few reasons many exhibitors prefer renting trade show booths:

  • Getting more out of your exhibiting budget.
  • If you are new to trade shows and not ready to invest in a booth purchase.

Define Your Goals and Determine Your Trade Show Display Look

October 30th, 2013 Comments off

It’s not always possible to meet with every person at a trade show that you would like to.  Hopefully you target a select group and focus on them.  It’s better to spend 80% of your time on your top 20% prospects than broadly canvas everybody.

In the same way, we encourage our clients to focus on important aspects of why they are at the trade show in the first place.  Are you there to maintain market share and presence?  Are you there to attract new clients as a start up?  Are you demonstrating or releasing a new product?  Are you just another vendor in a long line of vendors?

The position of a company within an industry will sometimes dictate what type of trade show display they have based upon their individuals goals of a show.  While we always try to work within our clients’ budget, sometimes focusing on quality first pays dividends in the long run just like meeting with the most important people at a show first.  Higher quality equals a quicker set up and a more dependable trade show booth.  What does this mean for you?  More time promoting your business, more confidence while promoting your business, and fewer headaches while promoting your business.

We are always looking for ways to set our clients apart from their competition through trade show booth design.  We have a saying around here, “Most people don’t have a problem with a beard but nobody has a problem with a clean shaven face.”  The thing to take away from this is that when the eyes of so many top targets are going to be upon you, that’s the time to look your best.  This is why our clients like working with us; we never suggest low quality portable trade show display products to them just to save a little money, because we know the value of the product and what that translates to for you, the client, in front of your own clients.

Update your look for this year’s show.  Upgrade your trade show display so that you’re not dealing with quality issues.

Indianapolis, IN was rated as one of the top cities in the country for trade shows, conferences, and conventions.  The Conventions Center is one of the finest in the country.  Indy Displays is here to help you look top notch and show better than you have in years.

September 30th, 2013 Comments off

Exhibit Line hit another home run with the 10×20 C5.  Twice as long as 10×10 exhibits, the C5 is a perfect option for companies that have a larger budget and more space to promote themselves in.   With this model you get a fairly quick set up with all the looks of a custom display.  If you can build a 10×10, you can build a 10×20 booth.

The Exhibit Line 10×20 kit includes two curved laminate canopies that hold 6 halogen lights each.  It also includes three NLC1 locking portable counters for storage and product placement.  These also can serve as a workspace if needed.  Two monitor mounts are also included as part of this display kit.

Exhibit Line products are produced in a eco-friendly manner with minimal waste from recyclable or sustainable materials and fit the needs of green values.

With the right graphics this portable trade show display can make you look like a premier vendor and really stand out from a style standpoint.  Put the ball in your court with the 10×20 Exhibitline Displays.

Pronto Retractable Banner Stand

September 19th, 2013 Comments off

With so many options out there to choose from it’s easy to become overwhelmed when deciding on how to best approach your trade show strategies.  This product gets an “A” for adaptability and affordability.

With retractable banners you not only get great value but you get simplicity while still being able to show well.  Due to the simplistic nature these items are cheaper than larger trade show displays.  However, with the smaller size and portability, this does open up more room for creatively using these stands to create just the right atmosphere within your booth space.

Depending upon the graphic design, banner stands can be used in a wide variety of ways.  You can use them in the office place, lobby, or conference rooms for presentations.  The fabric dye sublimation graphics can be designed in a way that allows you to control the image by how far you extend the pole; this allows you to instantly turn this into a table top display.  The pole can be stored in the base when not in use, which can be black or silver.  Transporting the unit is simple with a fully padded canvas carrying bag.

Assembling the Pronto Retractable Banner Stand includes connecting a 3-piece vertical pole and carefully pulling the fabric banner out of the hardware cassette and locking everything in place using the header bar hook connection. Use the Pronto Banner Stand at full free-standing display height or table top banner height. By controlling the height of the pole you can control the graphic being displayed.

The diamond finish (opaque laminate backing) helps control the look of the display by preventing backlighting from taking away from the look and makes the graphic look clean and crisp.  Many companies use multiple units to account for a complete graphic when put together, although by design they can also be used as stand alone products.  Pronto banner stand products come with a lifetime manufacturer warranty.  This display is also available in three different sizes, 33.5” x 87:, 39” x 87”, and 47” x 87”.  For more information CHAT LIVE at
