Choosing The Right Case for Trade Show Flooring

Published by Todd Millett on April 24, 2017

When purchasing a trade show booth, companies often either purchase flooring with their booth or shortly thereafter. Interconnecting flooring tiles provide three main functions: Enhancing aesthetic appearance, creating a visual area that separates the booth space, and providing padding for long days of standing at the trade show. For most, this is enough to justify the extra cost and effort in transporting the flooring to events. 

 

When Flooring Cases Are Needed

When it comes to flooring transportation, some clients simply transport their flooring in it's standard cardboard shipping box for the first show or two until it wears out. At that point, many of them decide to go ahead and get a wheeled carrying case. Others opt to purchase everything at once. Either approach works just fine, but chances are if you manage a trade show booth with flooring, you've decided it's time to make the next step for extra protection and convenience.

 

Selecting a Convenient Trade Show Flooring Case

Wait? Did we say convenience? As trade show professionals, we see it as our duty to eliminate the hassles and problem areas. We've discussed the available flooring case options with many clients, and for convenience reasons the solution ends up the same over 90% of the time: Our hard molded wheeled case for 10 x 10 flooring kits.

To be clear, we represent a variety of case options and we support your decision whatever it may be. In certain circumstances, another choice might make more sense. Lets break down all of our options.

 

10 x 10 Hard Molded Case

As mentioned above, this is our most popular. Even if the client has a 10 x 20 flooring area, they will usually purchase two of these as opposed to one larger case. This case features a hard body, smooth rolling wheels, and a side handle. In most transportation situations, the shipping logistics and convenience with multiples of this case outdo the larger cases.

10 x 10 Soft Fabric Case

This case has all the same features as our hard molded 10 x 10 case, except it is a soft fabric material. Flooring is very durable, so this can be a good solution for less strenuous and less frequent shipping conditions. It is best suited when you are transporting your case yourself and can position it in your vehicle however you want. However, we do recommend our hard cases for further protection when using shipping services.

10 x 20 Wheeled Hard Flooring Case

Once it gets to our 10' x 20' sized flooring cases, things start to become a bit more industrial. In the right circumstances, this rolling block style case is the right solution. For example, this case would work nicely with an extremely elaborate display involving several other similar cases packed onto a truck. However, in common transportation situations the size and shape can make things less convenient.

 20 x 20 Wheeled Flooring Case

Like our 10' x 20' flooring case, the 20' x 20' case has to be very large to fit all of the flooring tiles. Again, this can present some transportation challenges, but for this large of flooring area you might determine this option makes the most sense. There is a good chance a display covering this area will already involve a lot of components to move. Therefore, there might already be a well coordinated shipping operation in place that can handle this case.

EXHIBITORLIVE 2017 Highlights Video

While at the EXHIBITORLIVE 2017 Trade Show, we gathered some photos and video clips to share! We found some highlights to compile into a short video. Every year, we are able to get a preview of the latest developments in the trade show industry at this show. As we expected, we are seeing more creative uses of tension fabric displays, often paired with LED lights as light box frame displays.

As technology and lighting evolves, the industry is quickly finding ways to incorporate the new possibilities into more unique and attention grabbing display concepts. These are top-notch displays from the exhibit companies themselves, but we commonly see these trends trickle down into practical and appropriately sized display options for small to medium sized businesses. We watched the tension fabric trend emerge, and now we have customers asking for a comparison between tension fabric displays versus traditional pop-up displays. We've seen LED lighting go from a luxury item to a mainstream standard. Now we are starting to see LED lights used in more ways than ever before! 

So what's next? Take a look at this year's EXHIBITORLIVE 2017 Highlights!

When designing a display graphic, it is important to make sure the size and resolution of the entire graphic are closely matched with the actual size of the print. When they are not, it often results in pixelated and distorted graphics. Here is a 4-step process to tell if your final graphic print will turn out distorted anywhere on your display.

One way to secure a higher success rate at any trade show is to focus on the questions. From booth planning, to handout literature, to verbal in-person communication, questions should be considered every step of the way. Trade shows are physical, hands-on environments that are created to provide a way for people and businesses to find answers to their questions and make connections that provide solutions.
