We offer a HUGE selection of contemporary rental accessories, including workstations, kiosks, conference tables, reception counters, display cases, cell phone charging stations, and iPad stands. Any of these components can be integrated into the inline or island designs, or rented as single units to add to your existing exhibit.
Most counters and workstations offer bold graphic opportunities with attachable or removable infill panels. And they all come equipped with locking doors for secure storage. Need more than one. We have a large inventory of the most popular counters and pedestals.
Staging photos with your graphics and set-up instructions are always included.

Plain and simple, renting displays costs less.
2. Invest Wisely
Renting displays allows you to spend more of your budget on your trade show graphics and messaging.
Different trade shows appeal to different attendees. Renting displays offers the flexibility of changing your display and graphics from show to show.
4. Overlapping Trade Shows
Don't choose between attending two important trade shows. Renting displays means you can have an effective presence at both shows.
Flexibility is important to every business or organization. When you rent your exhibit, you can change your display quickly because your resources aren't tied up in the structure. This gives you the freedom to target your marketing messaging and graphics for specific trade shows. Plus, renting means you can move into a larger space if and when you need to.
6. Installation & Dismantle Included
When you rent, install and dismantle can be included, eliminating one less hassle.
7. No Storage Expense
Storing a display can be expensive, prepping it can be time consuming, and shipping it can be confusing. When you rent, there is no storage expense and there are no delivery or prep hassles.
Renting offers the benefit of testing a trade show display before you invest in its purchase. When you make the decision to purchase, you will know you have made the right choice.
Yes, the graphics are purchased. This is an important distinction, especially when comparing a rental vs. a purchase. When you rent, you only rent the hardware, not the graphics. However, if you re-rent the same exhibit and reuse your graphics, you can subtract the cost of the graphics, making the second rental less expensive.
Many exhibitors blend rental components with their existing exhibit. For example, your exhibit may include the main structure, like a tower and a conference room. Renting the workstations, kiosks, or other accessories will allow you to mix and match components depending on your show requirements. In addition, it allows you to “test-drive” components to see if there’s a long-term need.
Yes, with rentals you can literally change your exhibit design for every show. Plus, you will never have storage costs or staging issues to deal with.
Yes, many rental exhibit suppliers offer discounts for multiple show commitments depending on the show dates and locations. It is definitely worth asking about.
Always ask for examples and references. Professional rental suppliers will provide you with detailed staging photos and/or a live video preview before the exhibit ships to show. For larger island designs, consider scheduling an in-person preview.
Many rental providers offer full turnkey services. Either way, remember that there’s a cost to I&D whether it’s a line item or buried in the cost of the rental. Always cover this and any other services you want with your rental supplier.
Yes, most exhibit companies provide setup instructions. However, some are better than others. Make sure you see examples from past projects to make sure they are detailed and complete. Also make sure that they provide detailed diagrams and staging photos, and that someone from production is available 24/7 to answer a call with questions during the setup. Sometimes a quick call can save hours of labor on the show floor.
It’s best to use a vendor that provides a complete inventory list with all of the components checked off by the production team as they pack the crates before shipping. Ideally, they will provide packing photos that show each layer of components in every crate(s). You need to be confident that every part and component is packed and ready to go when the labor team starts the setup.
Rental vendors usually understand that their exhibit components are going to suffer some normal scuffs and scratches. With that said, when the scuffs and scratches turn into gouges and holes, there’s often a repair or replacement fee to cover costs. But if the exhibit vendor provides the installation and dismantle service, any damage fees would more than likely be paid by the labor company.
Yes, a lot of companies do offer storage services. Many will store the graphics at no charge if there’s a commitment to re-rent the same exhibit design for a future show or shows. Always determine what you would like to do with the graphics before shipping the exhibit to the show. If you decide to take the graphics with you after the show, you may need to request special packaging. This won’t be necessary if you make arrangements to ship them back with the exhibit.
Your exhibit provider usually offers shipping services, but most are flexible about shipping arrangements.
You will definitely want to discuss whether it makes more sense to go direct to the show or to the advanced warehouse. There are multiple scenarios to consider when making this decision. It often depends on how many days there are between the advanced warehouse deadline and the show date. The rental period (or time the vendor allows the exhibit properties to be out) also comes into play. Review all of this and make the appropriate decisions based on your specific show.
It is virtually impossible to walk a show floor today and identify which exhibits are rental versus purchased. Most rental designs have some customization, and many are custom designed for specific companies and specific shows.
Quite often, a few custom elements added to the design can give the entire design a custom look even if it’s as simple as some colorful laminated workstations, shelves, or a reception counter. Custom laminated soffits and backlighting are also nice touches that are inexpensive and well worth the investment. As a bonus, if you re-rent the same exhibit, your second rental will most likely be less expensive, since your first rental covered the cost of those custom components.
