Custom Orlando Trade Show Exhibits

Custom Orlando Trade Show Exhibits

We have a highly experienced team of designers and builders creating completely custom trade show exhibits and displays. It's all happening right here at our headquarters and warehouses in Orlando, FL. At DesignShop, we understand the importance of delivering both memorable and measurable results. Here are some of the most popular options for custom trade show displays, starting with the three main types of exhibits:

1. Island trade show exhibits

2. Inline trade show exhibits

3. Radiance Compact Modular™ Exhibits

Island Trade Show Exhibits

When you have a larger exhibit space without height restrictions, island trade show displays can help you make the most of it. Not only can you utilize overhead banners, upper level decks, and hanging custom graphics, you'll get the "wow" factor with 360 degree visibility. This truly puts your brand on display by increasing visibility on the showroom floor. It also offers a great deal of flexibility and creativity during the design process. You'll get to create an entire, branded experience to immerse your booth visitors.

Inline Trade Show Exhibits

These inline trade show exhibits are an easy and cost-effective way to bring your brand to any local trade show. But easy doesn't have to mean simple. We design highly custom inline trade show displays with endless configuration options to showcase your brand. They work great with size restrictions, such as in the classic 10'x20' or 10'x30' exhibit spaces. Inline exhibits also allow for quick and easy installation. The defined front and back on inline exhibits offer a nice flow for foot traffic. They also provides for features like rear display storage to help your company maximize attention on your products and brand message.

Radiance Compact Modular™ Exhibits

Radiance™ Displays are our own solution to small exhibit spaces and use the latest Compact Modular™ exhibit and display technology. They provide a unique way to make a big impact with a small branded display. That also means they are easy to transport and reduce handling, installation, dismantling, and shipping costs. Made out of a durable aluminum support structure and featuring large format or fabric graphics, as well as custom back wall shelving or product display options, they're a great value for any budget. 

No matter what size trade show display you need, our designers can configure unique Orlando trade show exhibits that brings your brand to life right here. Contact us to find out more!
