Modular Island 20′ x 20′ Exhibits

In keeping with our efforts to improve our selection of 20′ x 20′ trade show exhibits, MODdisplays is proud to release our new modular exhibit packages. 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.

Waveline B Series Released

As the first portable 10 x 10 trade show display to be available for less than a thousand dollars, the Waveline display revolutionized exhibiting. MODdisplays was one of the first companies to offer Waveline exhibits, and we are happy to release Waveline B Series for sale. This exciting new exhibit is vertically curved, and comes with a monitor mount, two lights, and a shelving system for added functionality. The newly designed case converts to a counter to complete your 10 x 10 environment, and a counter graphic is included in the price.

At just $1,695, the Waveline B Series package offers a complete environment for a 10 x 10 space. Because the entire exhibit weighs less than 40 pounds, it can be shipped via UPS or FedEx inexpensively using the case provided, which will save your company money as you move your exhibit from show to show. Low cost of ownership is important to seasoned exhibitors, and the Waveline B Series package will provide an inexpensive but professional environment for years to come.

Customer Service Sets MODdisplays Apart

MODdisplays offers a wide selection of high quality trade show exhibits, but our commitment to customer service sets us apart from other online display retailers. The unique approach taken by our sales staff as well as our graphic designers is intended to create the best possible experience for our valued clients. Here are just a few examples of our commitment to customer service:

  • When you contact MODdisplays, your call will always be answered by a trained, experienced trade show marketing professional. Many companies direct you to a call center where your questions are fielded by inexperienced operators. Our sales personnel have hands on experience with attending and exhibiting at trade shows, and they spend every day working to create better exhibiting experience for our clients. Our sales personnel do not work on commission, so there is no need to worry about being manipulated by a pushy salesperson. Our goal is your exhibiting success.
  • To the best of our knowledge, MODdisplays is the only company in the industry that offers free graphic design. Our in house graphic design team spends every day working with exhibit graphics, and that experience means that they understand what it takes to make your display look great. We never outsource your design project to unqualified freelancers, every product is independently handled by a graphic designer that is specifically assigned to your project based on your company type and your needs.
  • To the best of our knowledge, MODdisplays is the only company in the industry that offers free custom renderings and exhibit design. Our rendering team allows our clients to see exactly what their exhibit will look like before they agree to purchase, and we can’t figure out why anyone would buy an exhibit if they’ve never seen an image of the finished product.
  • MODdisplays offers a price matching guarantee, which means that we will beat any written estimate. As one of the largest online retailers, our massive purchasing power ensures that we receive the best prices around, and we always pass our savings along to our customers. If you receive a quote from one of our competitors, we will happily beat their price and include all of our free services (graphic design, custom renderings) at no cost to you.

Custom Looking Exhibits From Stocked Components

VK 1032MODdisplays specializes in custom-looking trade show exhibits made entirely from stocked exhibit hardware. Our extensive line of aluminum hardware and accessories allows our exhibit designers to create spaces that are tailored to the needs of your company without the expensive design fees associated with custom exhibit houses. Our graphic design and exhibit design services are available at no cost, and our trained professionals have years of experience creating effective trade show booths.

MODdisplays can offer much faster turnaround times and lower prices than typical custom exhibit houses because all of our display components are stocked at various warehouses scattered across the United States. Surprisingly, the ability to fabricate custom parts for your exhibit adds very little additional functionality. In short, we can create almost anything that a custom exhibit house can create, but at a much cheaper cost and a much quicker turnaround time. Once the design of your exhibit is complete, all that’s left is to pull your hardware components off the shelf and print your graphics.

If you have a quote from a custom exhibit house that seems unreasonable, let MODdisplays take a look to see if there is anything we can do to reduce your costs or speed up your turnaround time. Our friendly, knowledgeable industry professionals are standing by to help. Call 877.663.3976 or email sales@moddisplays.com for more information.

These options allow exhibitors to make a big impact on a small marketing budget, making their trade shows more profitable than ever before. Take a look at a few of the affordable options we offer below:

Putting Attendees in the Driver Seat

The expression “in the driver seat” originated with car salesmen who discovered the value of putting their customers in control of the vehicle. These salesmen discovered that potential customers were much more likely to close the deal quickly when they were allowed to experience the car to the fullest extent. The experience of being behind the wheel of a car is more powerful for the potential customer than anything a car salesman can say.

If a sense of control is important to creating confidence in a person who is looking to purchase a vehicle, how can we apply this principle to the trade show environment? The answer to this question depends on the type of products and/or services you are selling, but one fact remains consistent: You need your potential customers to experience your product first hand. Simply describing it to them or providing information about your product will not be as effective as putting the product in their hands and under their control.

If you sell software or web-based computer applications, allow your customers to use the full version of your product at demo stations within your booth. By letting them experience the interface of your product first hand, they are much more likely to make a purchasing decision on the spot. Even the most effective brochure or sales pitch will leave the potential client with questions and doubts.

If you sell physical products (such as machines, gadgets, tools, or equipment), allow your potential customers to hold the product in their hand. If possible, allow them to use the product in an application similar to the way they would use the product in the real world. The tactile sensation of handling your product and using it in a practical application will reinforce a purchasing decision in your customer’s mind.

Trade shows are so successful because they afford companies the opportunity to meet their customers and potential customers face to face. If you only provide brochures, sales pitches, and branding material, you are not taking full advantage of the face to face interaction. You can send your customers brochures, sales pitches, and branding material by email, so why do that in person? The best way to take advantage of direct marketing is to put your products in the hands of your potential clients. You will be amazed with the results.

Hiring a Trade Show Specialist

Posted by Andy Keeler on July 07, 2009
Trade Show Information, Trade Show Marketing / No Comments

Navigating the complex world of event marketing can be a daunting task. Fortunately there are trained professionals who can be hired to simplify the process. Trade show specialists are trained professionals who understand the nuances of the trade show environment as well as strategies to help you make the most of your exhibiting program. If you are looking to hire a trade show specialist for your next event, here are some things to look for:

1- Depth of experience in the trade show industry. The most valuable lessons in trade show marketing can only be learned with time. If a trade show specialist has a wide range of experience related to trade shows, chances are good that the specialist will be a big help to your program.

2- Positive recommendations from past clients. If previous clients have been pleased with the performance of the trade show specialist, you will know for sure that they have something positive to offer to exhibitors.

3- If possible, the trade show specialist should have experienced working in your industry. If they have spent the majority of their career working in a particular industry that is unrelated to yours, you may find that their success was the result of their industry knowledge and not their knowledge of trade shows.

Trade show specialists can make a huge difference in the success of your exhibiting program, especially if you lack experience in trade show marketing. I highly recommend that you at least consider the possibility of hiring a trade show specialist before your next event.

Advantages of Waveline Displays

WavelineWaveline displays are the most exciting trade show exhibit system to hit the market in a long time. Although they look a lot like popup displays, Waveline booths offer a lot more value for a much lower price. We are excited about the customer feedback we have received so far, and we believe that these displays will help exhibitors make the most of their trade show marketing budget. We are proud to offer a system that offers a number of advantages over traditional trade show displays, such as…

1- Waveline displays are the most affordable 10ft displays available. Purchasing an entire 10ft display with complete graphics for $845 was unheard of until now. Since Waveline units cost less than many tabletop displays, exhibitors are able to move up to bigger and more exciting venues and do more with their marketing budget.

2- The graphics for Waveline displays are produced using the latest technology in large format printing. Every Waveline display is produced using a process called dye sublimation. This process creates a durable, machine-washable fabric graphic that is guaranteed never to wrinkle or fade for as long as you own your exhibit. Dye sublimation graphics are simply better than the graphics you would receive with a traditional popup display.

3-  Setup takes less than 5 minutes. Assembling a Waveline display is very easy. The frame of the display is made from lightweight aluminum tubing that is shock-corded together for easy assembly, and the fabric graphic fits over the frame like a pillow case to create a smooth, curved wall. A sales person working alone could put together then entire exhibit with no stress at all.

As with all of our trade show displays, MODdisplays provides detailed graphic templates that make designing your exhibit a breeze, or you can let us design your exhibit for you at no charge. Every Waveline display comes with detailed setup instructions that are easy to follow, and those can be found on our website as well. If you have any doubts that this is the most exciting new trade show booth to hit the market in years, call our helpful staff at 877.663.3976 or email sales@moddisplays.com.
