Sacagawea – the affordable hybrid display

I recently received an email from a customer who had returned from a trade show and reached out to me as his company, “needed to step up their game.” He’s used retractable banner displays and table covers in the past with pleasing brand recognition, however… If he were going to compete with similar companies at shows, it was time to move up to a splashier presence.

The Sacagawea Portable Hybrid Display is a fantastic next step. Today’s Hybrid Modular displays are not only affordable, but also very easy to setup and ship. Sacagawea Portable Hybrid Displays are contemporary trade show designs constructed with lightweight engineered aluminum and vibrant tension fabric graphics.

The Sacagawea sets-up quickly, typically in less than 40 minutes for a 10 ft. display, using knob-assisted assembly. All components are individually numbered and pack in durable roto-molded cases with reusable die-cut foam packaging. Options include workstations, pedestals, fabric canopies, headers, and monitors.

There’s only one Sacagawea because no other portable hybrid combines value, design, and convenience into one very attractive portable display.

Engaging your customer is time well spent

What do you need from a potential customer at a trade show, to successfully engage them with your product? Their email address? Phone number?

Answer: TIME.

You need a sliver of time to educate them on how your product will make their lives better. There are many schools of thought on how to achieve this. Stopping event-goers to register for a drawing, pick up a starburst or piece of company bling are great. However, to REALLY get some time with them? Provide them a welcoming place to stop and stay awhile. For those of you still with me – picture it – Charging stations.

These miracles of modern technology are sleek time-takers. Almost all of us have an electronic device with us that needs charging, and time spent at a charging station/table/kiosk is valuable time to discuss why you’re there, why they’re there or just to show them the newest product you’re excited about. Charging stations come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. You can easily customize them with your artwork, which is also economical to change as needed.

Pricing varies, depending on the type of charging station you’re looking to integrate into your booth, however the investment is a good one. Time, after all, is a precious commodity.

Is trade show flooring worth the investment?

If you asked me which trade show booth product category has grown the most in the past year, you’d receive a quick reply.

Flooring; trade show flooring.

Gone are the days when it wasn’t feasible to own your own trade show flooring. Renting at the show was the only option, and the “You get what you get, and don’t throw a fit” adage held true. Not only is it now economical to own your floor – you have CHOICES! Oh, the choices.

You have an option of interlocking foam tiles, rollable vinyl flooring,  or modular hardwood flooring. Each style comes in several color options so you are guaranteed to find the right exhibit flooring.

When you contact me to inquire about which flooring to choose, and what’s available, you’re going to hear my customary, “What is your use, budget and timeline?” It’s easy to start there because the type of flooring, ease of assembly and expected life of the floor coverings vary. Just like there’s a banner display or floor display for every budget and application, the same holds true for flooring.

If you’re not ready to take the plunge on purchasing a new floor you can always inquire about our flooring rentals. Rental flooring is a great way to try before you buy!

I encourage you to entertain investing in trade show flooring, or look at what’s new. The look of the flooring in your booth can provide not only a clean, professional look, but also a nice foundation (pun intended) that saves your representative’s feet. Happy reps = trade show success.
