6 Trade Show Products You’re Better Off Buying Than Renting

If you’re a regular trade show exhibitor, buying the basic materials you’ll need time and time again instead of renting them just makes sense. Having staple items on hand and ready to roll at a moment’s notice will save you time, money—and stress.

Even if you use these items just one time, with Siegel Display’s budget prices, you’ll still pay less than you would renting. If you won’t be needing them again or are unable to transport them home, you can donate your unwanted materials. In fact, some trade shows partner with local charities to arrange for the pickup of leftover items once the show’s over.

Ready to stop renting and start saving? From portable product displays to iPad stands to flooring, we’ve compiled a list of six versatile pieces that practically pay for themselves.

1. Single-Sided Economy Gondola  

Affordably priced for onetime use and ideal for displaying products along the back wall of your booth, these versatile gondola displays come in your choice of 2, 3 or 4 feet wide. Snap-together components allow for easy assembly and quick deployment to the trade show floor while a one-inch peg-hole pattern offers a variety of shelving and peg combinations.

2. Freestanding Gridwall Store Fixture

Display merchandise samples of virtually any size with these heavy-duty wire racks, featuring ingenious movable gridwall hooks you can adjust on the fly with ease. A compact yet sturdy freestanding design and black finish make this piece suitable for virtually any trade show booth setup.

3. Two-Tier Cardboard Point-of-Sale Display

Organize multiple product lines and create an appealing presentation with these lightweight corrugated cardboard display stands. An included display header allows you to showcase your brand and logo while two tiers, each with a 12-inch-deep tray, encourage people to interact with your products as they pass by.

4. Corrugated Cardboard Trash Cans (12 Count)

Often overlooked yet totally indispensable! Storing flat until needed, our disposable cardboard trash cans keep your booth tidy by providing 40 gallons of waste or recycling space. Coming in packs of 12—perfect for the frequent exhibitor—they set up in seconds and take down just as easily.

5. 7”-10" Tabletop Tablet Stand

Just as handy in the office as on the trade show floor, this folding tabletop stand securely holds any tablet with a 7- to 10-inch screen size, bringing a digital presence to your booth. Quickly capture contact information and show prospects online catalogs, product videos and other interactive media on the spot.

6. Bamboo Trade Show Flooring

Flooring is often one of the most expensive trade show rental items. Our roll-up, eco-friendly bamboo flooring will pay for itself in just one or two shows. Waterproof for indoor or outdoor use, this thick and durable flooring rolls out quickly and rolls up just as easily when you’re done. Two rolls make a 10' x 10' floor.
