How to Use Tension Fabric Trade Show Displays

Tension fabric custom trade show displays have gained huge popularity in the industry today, and it is not difficult to see why. Tension fabric displays are highly customizable, affordable, lightweight, and most of all, eye-catching. There is also more than one way to use a tension fabric display. Below are some tips you can use when incorporating a tension fabric display into your trade show space.


Get Creative

Many people have been reaping the benefits of tension fabric displays at trade shows for several years now. To stand out from other displays and truly leverage this type display’s potential, it is important to get creative with them. Straight, flat-line tension fabrics are still used today, but there are so many other options that are even more popular. When choosing your tension fabric display, consider any one of the following:

  • Curved
  • Straight
  • Vertical curved
  • Serpentine

The design you choose will depend on the specific look you are trying to achieve with your display. Curved tension fabrics will create a unique look and add drama to your display. LED backlighting can also illuminate the display, adding intrigue to smaller exhibits and capturing the attention of the audience.


Go Beyond Backdrops

You can do so much more with a tension fabric display than just use it on a single wall of your exhibit.  You can also use these displays as banner stands for smaller spaces, fabric tunnels for larger booths, dramatic towers, and table top displays. Tension fabrics can also be used as hanging signs or as side walls. 

Getting creative with tension fabric displays can ensure that your exhibit is seen from far away, which is critical at busy trade shows. If you want to be seen from across the floor, consider a much larger tension fabric display with custom lighting and perhaps even televisions to add visual drama to the display.


Incorporate Accessories

A simple way to boost the impact of a tension fabric display is to add accessories to it. These can include:

  • Monitors and monitor mounts
  • Tablet mounts
  • Pedestals
  • Headers

A tension fabric display should attract customers with a message that is short and simple. Once the display has brought attendees to your booth, the accessories will keep them engaged. For example, you could use a tension fabric display to highlight the features of your product. You could then incorporate lighting to indicate a path to a monitor. The monitor can be used by attendees so they can learn more about how your product works, watch a demo, and more.
