Over 5000 Trade Show Exhibit Photos


5000+ Exhibit Photos

Monday thru Friday, we post photos of exhibits headed to a trade show or event in Past 5 Days. You'll see affordable 10 ft. displays, modern inlines, and attractive islands. There are table tops, monitor stands, charging stations, and banner stands. Some are rentals, others are eco-friendly. There are large and small lightboxes, counters, pedestals, and a mixture of retail displays. 

Each daily posting includes multiple views and a detailed description with links to kits in Exhibit Design Search, our comprehensive database of trade show products. Most photos are "shop" photos, taken at our manufacturing facility where we build, assemble, label, and pack every display from small three panel table tops to 40 x 50 islands. Occasionally, we are fortunate to get show floor photos. As you can imagine, we love to post those.

Past 5 Days Gallery

There's just something about a photo that a rendering can't match. We understand that, and we try hard to show you examples of kits, modified displays, and custom exhibits. We encourage you to browse the photos and save your favorites using the My Gallery tool. Your favorites can then be sent to others by copying and pasting the unique URL created in My Gallery or by completing the form. There's no better way to identify designs that appeal to your trade show marketing program.

Should you have questions, please contract your local exhibit professional. They are the experts. In the meantime, enjoy your stroll through the photos. Pay particular attention to graphics that "work" vs. ones that seem "cluttered or confusing." Trade show marketing is hard, and there's no better teacher than learning from other exhibitors who have paved the way. 

Good luck and much success at your next show.

  • Suggested lead times may vary depending on current orders. Please check with Customer Service.
  • Production lead times are based on business days and DO NOT include any shipping days.
  • Production-ready artwork (when applicable) must accompany the order confirmation. Delays in uploading artwork may lead to expedited charges or shipping changes.
  • No order will be released to Production without a signed order confirmation.
  • Shipping is based on the availability of materials and graphics. Additional charges may apply if materials or graphics must be expedited.
  • Standard lead times do not apply to orders of multiple quantities.
Exhibit Weight varies depending on the packaging and the shipping method. Variables include but are not limited to:
  • Dimensional Weight vs. Actual Weight: Dimensional weight is defined as crate or case size. On most air shipments, the dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight
  • Portable Cases vs. Wood Crates or Molded Tubs (where applicable): Exhibit designs that require one wood crate would require multiple portable cases. Selecting one vs. the other affects the total weight (dimensional or actual).
  • Freight Carrier: LTL carriers (Less than Truckload) quote freight based on space used. UPS, FedEx, and air freight carriers quote freight based on either the dimensional or the actual weight of the shipment.
  • Freight Service Level (number of days): Service levels range from Same Day Delivery to Two Week Delivery.
For more information about exhibit weights and freight options, please contact your local exhibit representative.
Electrical, Cord, and Wire Management varies depending on the display and each exhibitor's requirements. When ordering your trade show display, consider the following electrical/wire management issues and discuss your options with an exhibit professional:
  • Inline vs. Island Displays
  • Lead Retrieval Devices
  • Computer and Monitor Cables
  • Demo Equipment
  • Overhead Lighting
  • Grommets and Grommet Placement in Counters
  • Overhead vs. Floor Power Supply
  • Flooring and Electrical Wiring
  • Options for Hiding Cords and Cables
  • Flat vs. Round Electrical Cords
  • Multi-Plug Outlets and Extension Cords
By reviewing your wiring options BEFORE you order your display, you'll save TIME and MONEY and ensure your exhibit exceeds your expectations and your installation is trouble-free.
