We seem to be living in a pop-up world. From wine shops to outdoor yoga studios and from COVID-19 vaccination sites to gourmet restaurants, it seems as if every activity that calls for customer interaction has been getting the pop-up treatment over the last few years. Even when we browse Wikipedia we can see that new entries have been created to cover the definitions and evolution of pop-up shops, exhibitions, restaurants, and others.

Pop-up displays at special events have become popular because of their high effectiveness. We tend to react very positively when we see pop-up display stands that seem to have appeared out of nowhere. As long as the aesthetics and functionality of pop-up experiences are on point, we will continue to enjoy being surprised.

The whole pop-up concept may be trending now, but it is hardly new. Pop-up displays have been a fixture of trade shows, conferences, expos, and fairs for many decades. There is a good chance you have seen pop-up trade show displays and pop-up display stands during conventions, at job fairs, or set up overnight at a local shopping mall. There isn't a single pop-up booth display; there are several kinds to serve various purposes, and they have become the favorite display solution in the trade show circuit.

With all the above in mind, let's review the five reasons pop-up displays are often chosen by exhibitors and brand managers who wish to catch the attention of passersby and generate leads that can lead to easy conversions:

Pop-Ups Are Easy to Set Up and Put Away

There is a good reason these advanced signage solutions are called pop-ups: Their collapsible frame design makes them extremely versatile and simple to put together. Assembling one of these structures is a breeze thanks to their unique frame design; moreover, they are fully collapsible, which means that the tear-down process is also pretty easy.

Depending on the kind of display you use, there may not even be a need to use tools when setting up or taking things down at the end of the event. There was a time when signing up for an expo or a trade show meant having to hire a crew to build a booth to the precise specifications of the event organizer. These days, a pop-up booth display can be set up by brand representatives, and this can sometimes be accomplished by a single person.

Pop-Ups Are Fully Portable

Instead of having to arrange for booth construction at multiple locations, a single pop-up can be taken on the road and used multiple times. Thanks to the aluminum framing and fabric composition of a portable display, it is pretty easy to retract it, pack it up, and take it to the next location. Some pop-ups even feature their own carrying cases which make them even more portable and convenient. If a brand representative needs to make various appearances in the same region, the best solution is to carry a pop-up that can be fit in the trunk of a car. If you have several pop-ups, they can be transported in the back of a pick-up truck.

A Diversity of Pop-Ups to Choose From

With these displays, you do not have to worry about running into a cookie-cutter situation at a trade show, which is a problem that exhibitors often run into with booths. Pop-up frames come in a variety of sizes and shapes; they can be straight, rectangular, curved, or double-sided. Advanced features such as backlighting, magnetic surfaces, and LED detailing can make the displays even more attractive and engaging. With regard to sizing, their heights can range between 5 and 30 feet. This is the kind of versatility that would be laborious to achieve with booth construction, but it is quite simple to pull off with pop-up displays.

Graphics Are Easy to Replace

Adding to the versatility of pop-up displays is the high convenience of being able to replace the graphics. These displays boil down to two parts: the aluminum frame and the fabric where all the visual branding is custom printed. You can easily attach and remove the wrinkle-resistant fabric from the framing, which means that you can prepare various designs for different situations.

Let's say you need a pop-up display for a job fair in which you will be interviewing healthcare professionals on one day and food service workers on another day; to make things simpler, you can use adequate displays on each hiring day, but you won't have to worry about having to purchase additional sets of framing. The 9-ounce fabric, which can be folded and stored, can be easily fastened to the frame thanks to a system of hooks and loops. Removing the fabric is just as easy.
