Preparing for a trade show or exhibition event comes with a large number of challenges, especially if you’re new to the events. There’s a lot of design to consider, plenty of planning to get ahead of and the logistical side running an exhibition stall to bear in mind. One main feature within your display will be found with different types of banners, but with so many available to choose from what are the best choices and what are the logistics associated with each? From assembly and disassembly, to usage and replacing graphics – here’s your quick run down for all your roller banner logistics.
Assembling and dismantling your banner
Of all the roller banner logistics, this is bar far the one that is raised the most, and it’s understandable – with so many different types of banner out there, there may be different methods for each. Fortunately, they’re all pretty straightforward with very similar assembly requirements. Options such as our economy roller banner could be seen as a basic industry standard. This type of roller banner arrives in it’s own little bag with the base for the stand and two feet that attach the to bottom, simply extend the banner with the support bar at the back – for disassembly, simply do the same in reverse.
There are other freestanding options too such as a slightly more premier exclusive roller banner which operates in very much the same way but without any requirement for feet. Simply remove it from its case, and extend the banner, once you’re finished it will collapse back neatly.
It’s often asked how to go about replacing the artwork of your banner too, similarly to assembly and disassembly, it will all be down to which type of banner you go for. The more budget friendly options may be a little restrictive here, often designed for single use rather than frequent long term use, the artwork may be replaceable but the cost of doing so may not be worth it.
There are other options available however, such as the EazyChange roller banner designed with exactly this is mind – the base has a removable cassette which contains the artwork, which simply pops out and back in for whatever your artwork requirement – print however many different styles are required, and chop and change whenever you need to display differently – an affordable and low cost solution if you’re not looking to carry round a library of different stands at all times.
The roller banner logistics puzzle: how to get the perfect size? Whilst there are a wide range of size options available to suit any need, finding adjustable sizes to some degree may be a little out of the realm of possibilities – there are some solutions such as the midi roller banner which lets you set different heights depending on your display too. If you’re looking to bring a unique and dynamic approach to your display, an option like this may provide visitors with a different experience each time. For banners with more width, they’re also available but not in the same style – they’re typically available in a standalone normal format.
