These fully customizable systems can be designed to fit the needs of any exhibitor, but they are still made from stocked booth components to ensure quick turnaround and easy assembly. As with our basic 20′ x 20′ packages, we designed spaces that make sense and considered a wide range of functionality without sacrificing aesthetically. Our modular exhibits can accommodate common needs such as lockable storage, large monitor displays, conference rooms, meeting spaces, demo kiosks, and much more.

Every package we sell comes complete the exhibit components shown in the photos, including hanging signs, graphics, counters, lighting, monitor mounts, literature holders, and product shelves. Included but not pictured are shipping case(s) as needed, graphic design from our experienced team, and free custom renderings to help you figure out which layout works best for the needs of your company. In an effort to simplify the process of buying a trade show display, we have done our best to cut out all the headaches and provide economical solutions that meet our clients needs.

Alumalite Lineare with Slatwall

Alumalite Lineare with SlatwallWe recently announced the release of Alumalite Lineare, the newest portable hybrid display to hit the market. We are very excited about this new product because we believe that the sleek, modern design will complement our existing product line-up without detracting from our simple approach. But Alumalite Lineare isn’t just the next pretty face in the portable trade show display industry. This new system offers a number of previously unavailable features, one of which is the option to add a slatwall panel to the back wall of the display.

The Alumalite Lineare with Slatwall offers exhibitors a host of new opportunities for displaying products and promotional items. With slatwall in place, it’s easy to add hooks, shelving, hangrails, and much more. If you’re looking to display a number of small, packaged products, slatwall is the perfect way to create the feel of a point of purchase display with the look of a trade show booth.

If you elect to have one or both of your side panels be slatwall, you will have the choice of six laminate options, which are black, designer white, amber maple, pearwood, platinum, and brushed aluminum. These laminate options will give your slatwall a finished look that will blend in well with the color scheme of your trade show exhibit.

If you have any questions about Alumalite Lineare or any other trade show products we offer, please feel free to call 877.MOD.EXPO, or email

Green Initiatives Will Get a Boost Under Obama

Barack Obama was sworn in yesterday as the 44th President of the United States, and his economic stimulus plan is structured to give green initiatives a major boost. In an effort to create jobs and clean up the environment, Obama will route a large portion of his proposed $800 billion stimulus plan toward green energy initiatives. Whether you agree or disagree with President Obama’s strategies, there is no doubt that green initiatives will get a boost thanks to his economic stimulus package.

Environmentally friendly trade show exhibits have become increasingly popular with exhibitors over the past five years, and industry experts predict that green trade show displays are here to stay. Under the Obama administration, companies that use environmentally responsible practices may receive tax breaks that will allow them to further reduce the retail price of their products. This trend could drop the price of eco-friendly booths drastically, which would allow retailers to sell these systems at prices that were once impossible.

The Business of Green Media Conference, which takes place on January 22, 2009 at Cal Poly State University, will highlight eco-friendly practices in the printing industry. Through the use of sustainable, recyclable materials, printers and graphic houses have pioneered green displays, and we at MODdisplays are proud to share their innovations with our clients.

Lighter is Better

Purchasing a lightweight, portable exhibit can save your company thousands each year in shipping and drayage. With trade show marketing budgets tightening across the nation, cutting costs in shipping is a great way for exhibitors to save money without sacrificing their look. When you ship your trade show booth via UPS or FedEx, your charges are determined by size and weight (larger and heavier will cost more money to ship).

At MODdisplays, every trade show display we sell includes a proper shipping case that can be shipped via UPS or FedEx. Many of our cases are designed to fit just underneath UPS/FedEx dimensional weight restrictions, which allows you to ship the most material possible without facing additional charges due to the size of your package. In addition to saving our customers money, this saves our carriers money and makes their life easier, which is an important factor in securing extra discounts with UPS and FedEx.

In addition to the cost savings, purchasing a lightweight trade show booth is good for the environment. Lightweight, portable exhibits are just one more way companies have found to reduce their carbon footprint and promote sustainable practices.

Xpressions Displays in 10 x 20 Spaces

Posted by Andy Keeler on September 02, 2008
Green Trade Show Displays, Trade Show Displays / No Comments

Exhibitors who are looking for a unique 10 x 20 exhibit that can be set up in a matter of seconds should consider Xpressions 10 x 20 Displays. These exhibits offer a number of advantages over traditional popup displays in terms of functionality, but they are much more affordable than typical hybrid trade show booths.

Xpressions 10 x 20 Displays

As you can see in the image above, Xpressions displays can hold many smaller graphics instead of a single larger graphic, which will save your company money if you need replacement graphics. Inset shelving allows you to easily display your products, and lighting options are available in silver and black. The unique, three-dimensional look of these units allows you to create a stunning visual result with considerably less effort.

The biggest advantage of the Xpressions system is that it can be set up by a single person in less than a minute. Simply expand the frame into place, and you’re ready to exhibit. If you have any more questions about our Xpressions displays or would like to have a custom rendering done with your company’s imagery, please contact MODdisplays.
