Banner Stands Deliver Your Targeted Message

Banner Stands – On A Mission To Deliver Your Targeted Message

Few companies have infinite amounts to spend on trade shows. Live marketing is just one type of promotion that must come out of the budget, and even if your ROI from expos is high as the sky, you can’t spend every company dime on planning your display, booking shows, promoting them, and attending them. You can, however, increase the impact of your booth by investing in banner stands to use in your space.

Banner-standsConsider The Value Of Banner Stands

Banner stands have many built-in features, but they mainly serve as professional signs. Available in various sizes, they can expand on your existing message of text and graphics used in headers or can even add something new. Usually measuring about two feet wide for a single unit, they are also available in double or triple wide sizes too. Since they are smaller and more compact than your backwall and other signage you use in your booth, changing out the graphics and text is so economical that you can update it frequently.

What’s great about these small signs is that the frames themselves don’t cost an arm and a leg to buy. This enables you to have one or more on hand without feeling compelled to use them every time since you made the investment. Even if you have multiple signs, you can choose how many you use, depending on the size of your space and your booth layout.

Hone In On Attendee Psychology

Dispensing small snippets of your overall message is good psychology on the showroom floor. Especially at larger shows, attendees get immediately overwhelmed by the number of booths. Many of them have already decided on the exhibitors they must visit, and as they roam through the show in pursuit of those destinations, they look at other booths. Statistics show that they are likely to spend more than two minutes at only 26 booths. All exhibitors scramble to make sure that their booth is among the chosen few, but having these little signs can increase the likelihood that yours will be among them.

Why? Banner stands offer attendees a small bit of information, often presented in an interesting way. At a big show, everything forms a blur after a while, but distinct pieces of information stick out. The same principle is at play as when you go to a play or presentation that lasts for a couple of hours; despite the larger array of things you remember, you make come away with a couple lines of a song or a few catchy phrases. A sign with an effective message can be like the lyric fragment that won’t go away.

Given the power of placards with a message, you should carefully craft the messages that you choose to display at an expo. If you have a catchy slogan or a message about the benefit of your newest product, those may be the first things that attendees remember after the show. You hope the rest of your stunning display, demonstration, or presentation comes back too, but what’s on the banner stand is often the take away!

Find out more about the versatile banner stand and why marketers from every niche rely on these solid performers.


Common Types Of Banner Stands Seen At A San Antonio Trade Show Display


One of the reasons banner stands have remained so popular with San Antonio exhibitors is because they’re available in a nearly unlimited selection. You’ll find stands that can be used safely outdoors, others can hold product displays or literature and still others can be dramatically backlit. Every style of banner stand has its own accessories and add-ons making them completely customizable to meet your specific needs. They all set up and tear down easily and pack into one easy to manage bundle. Common designs include:


  • Retractable stands: These displays are exactly what you expect based on their name. They feature flexible fabric that retracts, or rolls up, into the base of the display. This protects the graphics and creates a compact, easy to carry display. Some of these stand designs allow you to swap out graphics when you want to want to change your message, adding even more to their versatile nature.
  • X-Frames: X-frames are simple designs that can be small enough to fit on a table or large enough that they tower high overhead. They are highly portable and are among the most affordable banner stands featuring lightweight design and easy packing and setup.
  • Pop-Ups: Pop-up displays come in many sizes as well. Some are as large as an exhibit booth and can make a great backdrop for your San Antonio trade show display. All are easy to set up and tear down. They cost more than X-frames and retractables, primarily because they’re bigger, sturdier and designed to withstand years of use.


Versatile Functions


Although common at trade shows, banner stands have a much wider appeal. They can be found in nearly every advertising niche in every industry, not just as part of a San Antonio trade show display. Their compact size and affordable design make them popular in retail locations and offices alike. Retailers often use banner stands to draw attention to new products or displays or to provide information in a large, easy-to-read format. Likewise, offices use banner stands to welcome visitors to their company, provide directional information or to promote company products. And who hasn’t seen banner stands in use in public places announcing special events? Here are a few more uses for these common displays:

  • Indoor or outdoor kiosk or sidewalk signs
  • Retail display
  • Visitor welcome sign in an office environment
  • Directional signs
  • Add-on or component of a San Antonio trade show display
  • Announce a new product or service
  • Promote a special event
  • Display motivational messages for employees around the office
