Las Vegas Convention Center – Lighting Restrictions

Posted by Andy Keeler on August 04, 2008
Trade Show Information / 3 Comments

To their detriment, exhibitors are often unaware of the lighting restrictions in effect at the Las Vegas Convention Center. If you show up at your event with the wrong kind of trade show lights, you may be forced to decide between renting lighting at exorbitant daily rates or not lighting your trade show booth at all. MODdisplays can help you purchase the kind of lighting that is approved for use at the Las Vegas Convention Center (which is by far the most strict facility in the United States with regards to lighting).

Lumina 7 LIght

The Lumina 7 trade show light can mount to almost any display surface. Thanks to the universal mounting kit, you can mount your lumina 7 light to almost any display structure (including popup displays). This light is specifically designed for use at the Las Vegas Convention Center, as it uses an incandescent bulb as opposed to a halogen bulb.

For more information about the lighting restrictions at the Las Vegas Convention Center, click here. Feel free to contact our Sales Department with any questions at 877.663.3976 or email

Lower Prices on Lighting

For the money, lighting could be your most valuable trade show display accessory.  This is because lights are inexpensive but are a great addition that can draw attention to an otherwise unnoticed booth.  Probably their best use is to highlight products or really help large graphics pop.   Many of our displays already include lights, like our Exhibit One or the XRline with built in recessed lights; even our affordable new Standard Popups come standard with lights.


For those items that need additional lighting our Lumina series are a great option.  The Luminas offer a wide variety of styles and finishes all with universal mounting brackets that can clamp to vertical or horizontal walls or pipes or even fit into the scissors of your pop-up frame.    We even offer a Lumina 2 banner stand light that will fit onto virtually any banner stand drawing more attention to what is important: the message on the graphic.


And we are happy to announce even lower prices than ever on these lights.   Check out our lower prices on all of our in-stock Lumina lights that ship the same day.

Banner Stand Lights

For years, every banner stand required its own unique lighting system. All that has changed with the newest banner stand light on the market, the Lumina 2 spotlight. This unique light clamps directly to the pole of your banner stand, and nearly all banner stands use an aluminum pole to support the graphic. This means that the light will work with almost any banner stand on the market, regardless of the brand or style.

Banner Stand Light

In addition to the versatility of this banner stand light, the bulbs we provided are very eco-friendly, and can be used at almost any convention center. Every light we sell is UL approved, which means you won’t have to worry about the light being disallowed at your trade show. We are not merely a sales company, we are a trade show marketing firm. Our primary goal is to provide you with products that will make your trade show a success.

Exhibit Lighting

I recently realized that many of the exhibitors we work with didn’t realize the impact and necessity for lighting their display well.   Lighting is an inexpensive part of your exhibit and is a great way to highlight your more essential and expensive part of your display, graphics.  Attendees are drawn to brighter booths because they are more welcoming. 

 Many of our displays come with lighting by default because it is built into the very structure.  Take the Exhibit One and XRline exhibits; both of these displays have canopies with built in recessed lighting.  Lighting in this way, not only looks high-end, it is simple to use since all you do is plug the display in after it is set up.  Your recessed lighting not only illuminates your graphic it helps create more of an environment than simply a flat graphic, in turn increasing your booth traffic. 

Banner Stand lighting is often over looked.  But with new lights like the Lumina-2, drawing attention to your banner stand graphic is not only inexpensive, it is simple to use.  Since the light clips to the pole behind the display and arcs over the top for great down-lighting, the Lumina-2 works with virtually every banner stand option on the market.  

Every display we sell offers either built-in lighting or the option to add the lighting.  For all your other lighting needs, like if you want to add lighting to a display you already own, we offer a wide range of solutions under our lighting section.  The two main groups of lighting we sell are the LightCraft lights and the Lumina lights.  The LightCraft lights have been produced in the US since the beginning of the portable display boom.  And since they are produced to spec you can customize your mounting bracket, color and even the length and shape of the arm.  The Lumina lights are a stocked category of lights which make them more affordable and ready to ship right away.  Each of the Lumina lights offers a universal clamp that works in virtually every situation.

Also, while every light we sell comes with a bulb, we do offer additional bulbs that can be purchased with your lights or at a later date when replacements are needed.  And as always, if you have any questions about your exhibit lighting needs please feel free to contact us at 877.663.3976 or

Trade Show Lighting

Posted by Andy Keeler on January 13, 2008
Exhibiting Strategy / No Comments

When exhibiting at a trade show, you are essentially creating an environment to attract and meet potential clients. The trade show lighting you choose will play an important role in creating that environment. Your lights need to be bright enough to attract visitors to your booth, but not so harsh that your visitors feel uncomfortable when they arrive. It can be difficult to strike this delicate balance, but a properly lit trade show booth space is much more likely to generate positive ROI for your company.

Because your trade show booth acts much like a mobile showroom, lighting your trade show display is a lot like lighting a showroom space. Lights need to be strategically placed and directed to highlight specific parts of your display and hide other parts. You want to place the majority of your emphasis on making your company’s brand and logo memorable, but you may also choose to highlight specific products or prototypes.

There are countless lighting options available to enhance your trade show marketing campaign. LightCraft is the foremost manufacturer of trade show lighting in the United States, and Lumina lights are the most popular choice among exhibitors looking to illuminate banner stands or tabletop displays. In addition to typical lighting solutions, many of our trade show displays come with built-in lighting options. The Exhibit One line of displays come with a canopy that contains recessed lighting. We also offer light boxes for trade shows, and backlit popup towers. Creative lighting choices help to ensure that your trade show display stands out at the next convention.

If you need advice setting up your trade show lighting, please give us a call. Our trade show marketing specialists are able to help you determine your lighting needs and create a solution that works well for you. Call MODdisplays toll free at 1.877.MOD.EXPO (1.877.663.3976), or e-mail
