How to Care for Your Trade Show Display

Trade show displays can cost thousands of dollars. After you make the initial purchase, you need to care for it to make sure that it lasts for other shows and conventions. Properly caring for your trade show display is easy, and it is important that you take the time necessary to do it. Below are a few tips to follow when caring for your trade show display, so it will last for years to come.


Inspect and Clean Materials

Before you pack up after a show, inspect all of the different components of your display to make sure they are not damaged. If your display is dirty, clean it before you pack it away. Remove grime, grit, and oil from your furniture and graphics to ensure the display will not become damaged while it is in storage. 

If there is some wear and tear on your display, correct the problem. If damage is minor, such as a burnt out lightbulb, you can take care of the problem right away. If the damage is more serious, take note of it so you can address it at some point in the future.


Properly Dismantle the Display

By doing a little prep work, you can make it easier for you and your staff to tear down the display while still keeping it in good condition. Create a list of things that your team must do before they leave the trade show, such as removing the graphics or dismantling the hardware. Also make sure that the different components of your display are labeled, which can ensure that components are returned to the proper location.


Store Your Display Properly

You may be tempted to simply toss the different components of your trade show display into a case once the show has ended, but that is a mistake. Make sure that you have all the materials you need to protect your display. Protective cases and covers can protect your display from moisture and dust. Padding can make sure fragile items, such as light bulbs, do not get broken while they are in transport. When purchasing a trade show display, ask about different components that can protect it during shipping and storage.


Deep Clean when Necessary

After a trade show, you may be able to simply wipe away minor spills and dirty areas. However, there are times when your display needs a deep clean. Certain fabric trade show displays can be thrown into a washing machine while others may need another type of care. When purchasing your display, always ask about how to properly deep clean it when necessary.
